Light your garden right with ballasts and reflectors from our Xtrasun collection. Xtrasun magnetic ballasts feature a unique patented aluminum housing, convection cooling, and exclusive lock & seal detachable in-line plug system—all of which contribute to reliable service at value prices. You’ll benefit from the ballast’s exclusive cooling ports, multi-mount handle, aluminum fins, and rubber mount feet that keep your system grounded and efficient. Xtrasun ballasts are available to power both sodium and halide bulbs (400W, 600W, or 1000W for sodium or 400W and 1000W for halide*), and offer dual 120V/ 240V input. Give yourself the utmost flexibility with the Xtrasun Convertible, offering one-click flexibility to drive either sodium or halide bulbs. (*600W conversion metal halide lamps that can be operated with Xtrasun 600W HPS ballasts are available from Hortilux and other manufacturers.)
The natural partner for Xtrasun ballasts are Xtrasun reflectors. This line provides excellent light delivery at a value price, offering something for everyone and every garden. Choose from our air-cooled 6" or 8" units with sealed and latched lens system, our efficient and lightweight wing reflectors, and our line of parabolic reflectors. For those looking for an exceptionally broad light spread, the Mondo 6" reflector won’t disappoint.
Xtrasun reflectors are compatible with both sodium (400W, 430W, 600W, 1000W) and halide (400W, 1000W) lamps, and deliver the brightest, broadest spectrum of light for fastest growth. Constructed from highly reflective European specular aluminum, the air-coolable Xtrasun AC reflectors are CSA-certified. You’ll find the low-profile design easy to use when changing out bulbs. Customize your setup with optional flanges, lens system, and lamp and cord set. All reflectors include hanging hardware and instructions. Whatever your lighting needs, Xtrasun has you covered.
Xtrasun Dimmable Digital Ballasts
Xtrasun Dimmable Digital Ballasts offer reliable service at value prices, along with the longest warranties in their class. These versatile units are compatible with all Hydrofarm reflectors (and most others). Created with state-of-the-art microprocessor technology, these ballasts are super-reliable and generator ready.
Xtrasun Convertible Magnetic Ballasts
The Convertible Xtrasun ballast works with both sodium and halide bulbs. All Xtrasun ballasts feature dual voltage operation as well.
Xtrasun Air-Coolable Reflectors
Xtrasun air-coolable reflectors are designed to run cool. Choose a 6" or 8" flange, with both versions including built-in socket and cordset, highly reflective European specular aluminum, and a completely sealed removable lens system.
Xtrasun Parabolic Reflectors
Deliver a wide column of light to your plants with Xtrasun parabolic reflectors. Enjoy ultimate flexibility—the Xtrasun Parabolic is compatible with both sodium and halide bulbs, which may be used horizontally or vertically. No tools are needed for assembly.
Xtrasun Vertical Reflector
Your plants will enjoy a super broad light spread with the Xtrasun 45" vertical reflector. Includes a cordset and socket, four highly reflective sections (assembled to make up the reflector), housing, and hardware.
Xtrasun High Pressure Sodium (HPS) Lamps
Xtrasun HPS lamps are engineered specifically for use with both magnetic and electronic ballasts, and with their 2000° Kelvin color temperature, they consistently provide intense light in the correct spectral range for vigorous flowering growth.
Xtrasun Metal Halide (MH) Lamps
Our Xtrasun MH lamps are engineered specifically for use with both magnetic and electronic ballasts, and with their 4200° or 7200° Kelvin color temperatures, they consistently provide intense light in the correct spectral range for energetic vegetative growth.
Xtrasun Metal Halide (MH) Conversion Lamps
These Xtrasun conversion lamps allow you to switch to an MH lamp without needing to switch to an MH ballast. They’re engineered specifically for use with both magnetic and electronic ballasts. Just like our standard MH lamps, these conversion lamps have a 7200° Kelvin color temperature that consistently provides intense light in the proper spectral range for vigorous vegetative growth.
Xtrasun Dual Arc Lamps
The Xtrasun HPS + MH Dual Arc lamps are engineered specifically for use with both magnetic and electronic HPS ballasts. With their 2800° Kelvin color temperature, they consistently provide intense light in a mixed spectrum which combines parts of the red-orange and blue-white ranges. As a result, these lamps work very well for both vegetative and flowering/fruiting growth, allowing them to be used throughout the entire growth cycle.
