Incandescent lighting is produced by sending electricity through a filament (superfine wire) where it incurs resistance then heats it up causing it to glow.
Tungsten Halogen Lamps
Tungsten halogen lamps utilize a tungsten wire filament that is in a sealed glass bulb that either uses iodine or bromine to fill the glass chamber and send electricity through the filament to create a bright light.
These cannabis lighting systems are very inefficient and expensive to operate with a very low lumen-per-watt output. The color spectrum that is created from these cannabis lights is in the far red-end spectrum with only 10 – 15 percent in the visible light spectrum.
A CFL light will normally last 10,000 – 20,000 hours while their ballast will last from 50,000 – 60,000 hours of operation.
Low-Pressure Sodium lamps are monochromatic and do not grow cannabis. Do not use these lights for growing because Low-Pressure Sodium lighting systems are used mainly in the industry for security and warehouse lighting.
These lamps require specific ballasts and fixtures for them to operate.
