Electronics and assimilation lighting has been a topic of discussion and debate for quite some time. A perfect solution is now available. The ePapillon offers many advantages over conventional luminaires. Quite simply, it uses the same amount energy to produce more light. This is achieved by combining a superior reflector (95% efficiency) with the brighter especially developed EL lamp. Giving the ePapillon package the highest PAR output per watt. The design of the reflector allows for easy removal, for cleaning and replacement. The ePapillon uses a safety cover that provides a thermal buffer between the hot reflector material and any objects that it may come in contact with. The protective cover reduces the surface heat from 390°F (198.9°C) down to 122°F (50°C). The Open Reflector Functionality directs more light to the canopy. Heat is allowed to rise away from the canopy more efficiently. The heat that is generated on the lamp surface is not transferred directly to the plant, but indirectly, with air acting as a carrier. Using the open reflector concept, a natural air current is created, with which the heat is distributed evenly throughout the environment, thereby preventing the formation of hotspots on the plant. The Reflector increases overall lamp life (less heat build up). The patented reflectors have a yield of 95% (measured in a Iabaratory certified by the British Standardisation lnstitute). The lux values achieved by luminaires with these reflectors are as much as 10% higher than by conventional luminaires resulting in more PAR light to the plant canopy. Using a completely different production process, we are able to use a reflector material of a high surface density and a high reflection capacity. The reflector is designed to reduce the heating-up of the lamp to the minimum possible extent. As a result, there is a lower drop in the light output of the lamp in the course of its life. In short, our reflector produces more light (light output of 95%- Light Output Ratio), a broader beam of growth light that penetrates deeper into the plant and lower lamp luminosity rate thanks to a relatively low reflector temperature. 1000w adjustable ultra high frequency ballast (Range: 600-1150w). Higher density Vega aluminum reflector with only 1% annuel depreciation. Driver efficiency 95%. Sealed housing with Gore-Tex ventilation plug allows for extreme air pressure fluxuation. Lamp & Reflector easily replaceable. Year warranty on fixture, 1 year on bulb.
