Lummi Hid Hps to cfl convertor lead, If you want to use a hps/hid reflector with a cfl bulb then this is what you need, cfl bulbs don’t need ballasts so this converts any reflector from ice to 3 pin mains plug
If you want to use a CFL bulb with a IEC reflector, you can. The LUMii® HID to CFL Converter Set allows IEC reflector leads to convert to a plug lead.
This kit contains a short additional cord set (UK or EU plug available) to convert the supplied IEC to a conventional power supply, as well as an innovative support device (for use with the LUMii® MAXii reflector) to assist with the additional weight of a CFL bulb
The Microjet Oxy Pump mc320 is a compact and reliable adjustable flow rate water pump with an air intake valve to help oxygenate your hydroponic system. Microjet Oxy pumps are used in smallest Flood and drain system EF120 and the NFT grotank systems as standard. Both the Microjet Oxy MC320 and Microjet Oxy MC450 have very low power consumption. The Microjet Oxy pumps can also easily be used to power small dripper irrigation set ups.
MicroJet Oxy MC320
Delivers 320 Litres Per Hour
Can lift water to a height of 45cm
6 watt power ConsumptionMicroJet Oxy MC450
Delivers 420 Litres Per Hour
Can lift water to a height of 70cm
6 watt power ConsumptionEach Microjet Oxy pump is supplied with instructions and comes wired ready to use with 2m of cable and 13amp plug.
The Microjet Oxy pump has a removable foam filter that stops particles from entering the pump, this needs to be cleaned regularly or the pump could stop working.
In hard water areas we strongly recommend descaling your Microjet Oxy water pump periodically to stop hardwater deposits building up.
The Smart valve is a NON electric powered wate release valve!
The robust Smart Valve, activated by a non-powered moisture sensor is a new patented regulator to control the flow of water to plants. Indeed the plants themselves control their own water supply. Offering high flexibility, the Smart Valve’s adjustable depth regulator allows growers to vary water reservoir volumes to best suit season and plant species.
Cost Effective and Natural
As the Smart Valve allows plants to regulate their own requirements, there is no risk of over or under-watering. In addition, unlike manual or timer based watering systems, the Smart Valve gives growers the advantage of a completely natural wet and dry cycle.
Use in conjunction with 4mm-6mm tubing.
The Smart Valve has been tested by the highly respected research organisation Horticultural Research International based in Efford, UK who said “The Smart Valve looks a promising and key component to automate watering systems and the results indicate significant plant management cost potential.”
Savings and Advantages
Compared with powered watering systems and sensors, the Smart Valve is impressively cost effective and in addition gives substantial labour and water usage savings, eliminates cold shock and anaerobic bacterial root infections caused by over-watering.
No supply of electricity is required for the Smart Valve® watering system, which renders time switch and watering computers redundant. These devices typically switch on and off watering systems regardless of the plants’ need as they are in no way linked to the plants’ own transpiration cycles but are instead based on some arbitrary time base.
Environmental And Operational Benefits
By eliminating the need for flood and drain in industrial horticulture, the Smart Valve can allow growers to say goodbye to the complicated and time consuming process of effluent disposal which growers are required to carry out in accordance with strict national regulations and the EU Water Framework Directive.
