USE THIS HANDY GUIDE TO FIGURE OUT THE COST OF USING VARIOUS WATT: Grow Lamps.
Grow Lamps Power Consumption :
amount depends on the size of the grow lamps system and the number of hours operated. However,
since these grow lights are so energy efficient, you are getting huge amounts of light (and growing
power) for your money! Make sure your grow lamps room’s power circuit can handle the power draw.
For safety reasons, do not exceed 75% of the rated ability of the fuse/breaker (for example: use no more
than 15 amps on a 20-amp circuit). To calculate your grow lamps operating cost, multiply the hid bulb
wattage X hours of operation and divide by 1000. This figure is the number of kilo watt hours of electricity
consumed. (Example: a 400 watt grow lamp hid bulbs running for 18 hours will use 7.2 kilowatt hours).
Check your power bill for the cost of each kilo watt hour. Then multiply the number of kilowatt hours by
the cost of a kilowatt hour (K/hr) to arrive at the cost per month to run the grow light in your area.

IMPORTANT PRODUCT INFORMATION READ IMMEDIATELY
KEEP ORIGINAL PACKAGING – ALL RETURNS NEED TO BE IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING IN ORDER TO
AVOID PRODUCT DAMAGE DURING SHIPPING. ANY DAMAGE TO PRODUCTS NOT IN THEIR ORIGINAL
PACKAGING WILL NOT BE COVERED UNDER WARRANTY.
FAILURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY WARNINGS MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY. IN
ADDITION, FAILURE TO OBSERVE THESE SAFETY WARNINGS WILL RESULT IN A WAIVER OF ALL
LIABILITIES ON SUNLIGHT SUPPLY®, INC. AND WILL VOID ALL WARRANTIES.
•If the exterior of the lamp is damaged, replace lamp immediately.
•Disconnect power before re-lamping.
•When re-lamping, make sure lamp has time to cool before touching.
•Make sure power cord and lamp cord are connected properly.
•Do NOT hang by power cord or lamp cord.
•Do NOT make contact with the interior of the socket while the power is on.
•Do NOT operate the light systems in wet locations.
•Do NOT plug this system into a supply voltage other than what is instructed on the ballast.
•Do NOT attempt to open, rewire or reconfigure any components of the light system. It will void the warranty
and could cause serious injury or death.
•These products operate at very high temperatures. Keep away from children.
•Do not plug or unplug a lamp cord while the ballast is turned on.
•Do not use with generators. Warranty will be voided.
•The Lite Pipe™, Sun Tube™ and Digital Fusion™ all need to be air cooled.
•Glass required in reflectors when using metal halide (MH) lamps for UL listing to apply. Not required with high
pressure sodium (HPS) lamps.
REMOTE BALLAST SETUP:
(SUN SYSTEM® 1, 6, 10, BUDGET GRO™, HARVEST PRO™ & HARVEST PRO™ ELITE)
1.Remove the system from the box along with all additional parts.
2.The Smart Volt™ systems come standard with the 120 volt Smart Volt™ power cord. The Sun System® 1
and 6, Harvest Pro™ and Harvest Pro™ Elite have the Power Pointer™ voltage selector. The Sun System® 10
and Budget Gro™ have the Power Slider™ voltage selector. Make sure it is on the 120 volt option to plug in the
provided cord. To change the voltage on the Sun System® 1 and 6, Harvest Pro™ & Harvest Pro™ Elite, simply
pull out and twist 180º (Fig. 4a). For the Sun System® 10 & Budget Gro™, slide the door to the marked 240 volt
side (Fig. 4b). To use the 240 volt you must purchase the 240 volt Smart Volt™ power cord (#903082 or
3.Switchable Units: When using a SS-6 MH/HPS (Metal Halide/High Pressure Sodium)
switchable unit, switch the system to the MH side to run a Metal Halide lamp or HPS to run a High Pressure
Sodium lamp. For a SS-6 1000 switchable, select the HPS option of the ballast by pushing the bottom of the
switch so that the red part of the switch is visible. Press the top part of the switch for MH. A SS-6 400
switchable is marked HPS400 for the HPS side and MH400 for the MH side.
4.Connect the socket to the hanging reflector (see reflector setup Fig.4). If the lamp cord is included with the
reflector, skip this step.
1.Now connect the grow lamp cord to the remote ballast (Fig.2). Make sure to attach the securing ears to the
2.Carefully screw the proper hid bulbs into the socket. Refer to lamping instructions on the ballast.
3.For SS-6 grow light units make sure to select the proper setting on the ballast to match the hid bulbs that is
being used. Make sure the switch is properly set for either MH or HPS type grow lamp (Fig.3).
4.Lastly, turn the grow light system on by plugging the power cord into the proper NEMA configured receptacle.
5.You should use a properly rated Smart Volt™ cord (120 or 240 volt) for the power that you are using. If you
energize this grow light ballast with 240 volt power while the female end of the power cord is plugged into the
120 volt receptacle you will “fry” the grow lamp ballast and void the warranty. If you want to run this grow lamps
ballast with 240 volt power, you should purchase a 240 volt Smart Volt™ cord separately
Hid Bulbs INFORMATION:
Proper Hid Bulb Care
Hid bulbs should be replaced every year to maintain maximum lumen output. If a grow lamp fails to reach
brightness, please contact your retail store.
If there are bulbs that will not fire, try swapping the bulbs around for others that are working. This will help
determine if the bulbs are defective.
Grow Lamps Reflector SETUP:
1.See (Fig. 5) for attaching the socket on reflectors which do not include the socket.
2.Some reflectors will come with a built-in socket assembly, while others you will need to purchase one
3.If the reflector does not have a built in socket, use a socket assembly that is sold separately. Choose from
Product No. 903055 or 903060.
4.Some reflectors include glass. For other reflectors it may be purchased separately if you choose to use it.
Typically people use glass to control air movement through the reflector during air cooling. This also
protects/contains the environment of your grow area. Glass is not required when using HPS lamps for the ETL
listing to apply. It is required for MH lamps for this listing to apply. The glass installation process will vary by
reflector type. It is, although, a very simple process for all Sun System reflectors.
5.Use an eyebolt or some other means of hanging securely from the ceiling.
6.V-Hangers (Fig. 6) are used to hang the reflector.
7.SunLifts, #710125, Grow Yo-Yo, #710129 (Fig. 7) or jack chain may be used to adjust the hanging height.
Complete Grow Lamps SETUP:
(SUN SYSTEM® 2, 4 & Sun System 150)
1.Remove the grow lights system from the box along with all additional parts.
2.These grow lights systems do not require much setup. Carefully screw the proper hid bulbs into the socket,
refer to lamping instructions on grow lights ballast.
3.Hang the fixture using the V-hangers provided.
4.(On/off switch should be in the off position.) Plug the unit into the proper NEMA configured receptacle.
5.Turn the fixture on using the on/off switch. Some grow lights systems may not include this feature
