You have undoubtedly noticed that the transition from HPS (High Pressure Sodium) lighting to LED in horticulture is accelerating. This is due to both high energy prices and the fact that LED has now become extremely efficient and produces the same or even better cultivation results than HPS. It is clear that LED has now become leading. For that reason, our supplier has decided to stop selling drivers for our 600W HPS luminaires.
Until September 1 of 2023 you can still order 600W drivers from us, after that this is no longer possible. December 31, 2023, the delivery will stop completely. We can imagine that you have some questions regarding this message. We have listed the most important ones for you:
What happens if I still have warranty on my 600W installation?
Nothing changes to your warranty conditions. We will continue to fulfill our obligations until the end of your warranty period.
If I want to have my own service stock of 600W drivers to run my installation for some time, how much should I keep?
As a rule of thumb, stick to 2% of your total installation. So, for example, if you have 1,000 600W luminaires, stock up on at least 20 drivers.
Will 600W light bulbs also be phased out?
No, these remain available for the time being.
Will drivers for 1000W HPS fixtures still be available?
Yes, they can still be ordered!
