Home 9 Product 9 Newlite CMH LEC 600W E40

Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH) or LEC lamps have a higher proportion of blues and reds than other high pressure lamps, such as sodium or metal halide lamps. This means that the plant growth and flowering process is more natural, as the spectrum is more similar to sunlight.

Newlite CMH LEC 600 W E40 lamps are installed on reflectors with an E40 lamp-holder, making them compatible with the lamp-holders normally installed in sodium reflectors.  No adapter is required to use the same reflector.

It is possible to use the magnetic or electronic (recommended) ballast that is used in other HPS or MH lamps.

Newlite CMH LEC 600 W E40 lamp increases the quality of the final product of the plants, as it naturally activates the compounds responsible for offering the best of the plant genetics.

This lamp is available in two different colour temperatures:

3000K: indicated for complete development processes that increase flowering.

4000K: indicated for complete developments in which the vegetative and flowering stages are balanced.

They are both mixed lamps and can be used to perform the full cycle, from rooting or germination, to vegetation and flowering, to the end of production.

CMH or LEC lamps offer a more homogeneous light spectrum than sodium lamps. This favours an improved development of the secondary metabolites: alkaloids (cannabinoids), terpenes and phenols.

Relevant features

CMH or LEC lamps have a broader colour spectrum range than sodium lamps.
A broader spectrum means greater quality in the final product of the plants.
They are indicated in plants in which a full spectrum is needed.
The light spectrum is more homogeneous than in sodium lamps.
They favour an improved development of secondary metabolites: alkaloids (cannabinoids), terpenes and phenols.
