How the Osram 250W Super HPS Lamp works:
The Osram 250W Super HPS Lamp is a single-spectrum HPS lamp with 33,200 lumens output. The lamp only produces light in the orange/red part of the spectrum for heavy flowering. As no blue is produced this lamp is not suitable for vegetative growth. Osram Super lamps are designed to have a slightly longer life than other HPS lamps.
Using the Osram 250W Super HPS Lamp:
Using a clean cloth to hold the lamp, screw the lamp into the E40 bulb-holder fitting of your reflector until it will turn no further. It is important that the lamp is screwed very firmly into the holder. Failure to fit the lamp tightly will cause arcing inside the holder between the centre connector and the contact on the lamp. This will melt the solder contact on the lamp and irreparably damage it. Connect your reflector cable to your 250W HPS ballast. The wattage of your ballast MUST match the wattage of the lamp you are using or there will be a high risk of fires or equipment damage. Ensure the lamp is completely clean and free of dirt, grease and finger-prints etc. before switching it on.
Warning: Once the lamp is switched on it runs extremely hot. As with all high pressure sodium and metal halide bulbs it is necessary to avoid touching the lamp with anything such as fingers or plants as this may cause severe burns or fires. In particular avoid sprays or liquids coming into contact with the lamp as this may cause premature failure or even an explosion.
As with all lamps the light output they produce will decrease with use over time. DSProGrow recommends you replace your lamp regularly to maintain your garden efficiency.
