Why choose a CMH Lighting Kit?
1.Provide broadest spectrum
Ceramic Metal Halide lamps emit light that has a spectrum closer to natural sunlight than other lamps. A plant that is exposed to CMH lights will receive a bigger range of usable light wavelengths.
CMH lamps work by heating up a ceramic tube within the bulb which means they can withstand much higher temperatures and in turn they produce a plasma-like light similar to that of the sun.
2. Best CRI
CMH lights provide the highest measures (between 80 and 96) of color rendering index (CRI) as compared to other grow lights.
3.Provide UV Lighting
CMH lamps give off significantly more ultraviolet light than many other types of growlight. UV light is particularly important to plants during the vegetative stage of their life as it helps the plant to develop stronger branches.
4. Color Stability
Many other types of grow light lose their effectiveness over time, however, a CMH lamp with provide consistent quality and duration of light throughout their useful life.
5. More Efficient
CMH bulbs are up to 20% more efficient than other types of metal halide bulbs and therefore the yield per watt of a CMH is higher.
6. Longer Lasting
This is another subjective benefit, but CMH bulbs do last longer than halogen and incandescent lights. They have been confirmed to run as long as 24,000 hours (almost 3 years).
7. Produce Less Heat
Though they operate at higher temperatures, CMH bulbs give off less heat than other types of bulbs. This is particularly important during summer months when the baseline room temperature is already higher.
It also means that the bulb itself can be closer to the plant, reducing the chance of burning the leaves.
8. No Electromagnetic Interference
CMH bulbs do not interfere with electronics such as cell phones or television signals the way that some other types of grow lights or electronic ballasts can.
