Lumatek adj. ballast-Right bulb for wattage!
on September 5, 2013
WARNING-Just to let it be known, just because the ballast is adjustible doesn't mean you can take a 600 watt bulb, and run it on 750 or 1000. The same as, you can't take a 1000 watt bulb and run it on 750 or 600. A 1000 watt bulb on 750 will burn up the bulb 75% faster, and will burn hotter, as your ballast is doing the same. You have to set a 600 watt bulb at 600, and so on. At this point in time, super lummens should never be used! Ballast tech. is about 5 years ahead of bulb tech.. When they come out with a bulb that has multiple filiments(like your 3 position lamp in the living room), you will be able to just turn the knob for desired wattage. Hope this helps.
