600w dimmable lumatek and bulbs
Hi everyone, hope everything is going well. I have a question about dimmable ballast and the bulbs we use in them.
So recently, I picked up a new lumatek 600w dimmable ballast, that can go from 6-4-300w's. Do you know if I put a 250 bulb and run it on 300, will it pop? I understand it may shorten the bulb life, but what I'm worried about is an explosion. Maybe my logic is wrong, but I would have to think that running a 250w on 300 setting has to be similar to running the 600w on super lumens.
Also, I read somewhere that you don't want to run a 600w bulb on 300w setting because the 300w won't get the 600w bulb hot enough to reach the proper spectrum. Does anyone know if this is true or just lighting company propaganda?
I was going to set up and experiment, but I thought I'd ask first.
