Gavita E-Series Digistar
Gavita DigiStar adjustable electronic ballasts guarantee maximum lamp output regardless of a fluctuating input voltage. They operate completely silent, cool, safe and are more efficient than magnetic ballasts.
The DigiStar ballasts have an adjustable output power. This feature allows you to dim and boost a lamp or to use different lamp powers with the same ballast, for example a 400W lamp for vegetative growth and 600W lamp for the flowering phase. Choose a suitable lamp for your high frequency electronic ballast to prevent lamp failure. We recommend Gavita enhanced HPS lamps for DigiStar models and guarantee the lamp for one year (5000 hours). This ballast is equipped with Soft Dim: When you adjust the output power with the selection switch the Soft Dim feature gradually adjusts the power in 60 seconds per output power step to protect the lamp.
These ballasts are suitable for the Gavita Master controller range of light controllers. Gavita controllers allow you to centrally switch, dim and boost you ballasts. They contain auto-dim features for high temperatures and emergency shutdown, as well as adjustable sunrise and sunset periods. Gavita controllers replace the traditional timer/ contactor and eliminate ballast inrush current.

Using a Gavita Master controller to control your DigiStar ballasts offers you maximum control, ease of use, plug and play installation and safety. Just connect the controller to the first ballast, interconnect the ballasts with the Included interconnection cables, set the dial on the ballasts on ext (external control) and you are set to go. The controller can switch all the interconnected ballasts on and off with its internal timer, adjust them to your required output level (in percentage or exact output power) and even simulate sunrise and sunset to gradually adjust the climate in your grow room when your lights go on or off. This electronic controller replaces expensive lighting timers and contactors while preventing ballast current in-rush when switching on your lights.
Two very important features are the autodim function and emergency shut-down. When the temperature in your grow room rises beyond the control level of your climate control your crop can be damaged beyond recovery. The temperature probe senses this and will automatically dim the lights to not overshoot your safe temperature, and maintain it. The display and warning LED indicate when this happens, and also indicate if this has happened while you were away so you can correct the problem. If for any reason your climate control completely fails and the temperature rises to unacceptable levels the system will perform an emergency shutdown of all connected equipment. The alarm contact of the controller can be connected to you alarm system for instant notification.
You can connect all your DigiStar e-series ballasts to one controller,
even divided in 2 separate rooms with their own temperature sensor for auto-dim at high temperature and emergency shutdown at extreme temperature. There are different controllers available to
suit your specific requirements.
For auxiliary equipment you can connect up to two accessory Gavita
ECM contactor modules, one to switch equipment when lights are on (for example humidifier, CO2 equipment, air conditioning) and one for during lights off (for example room heater).
