BALLASTS - Nanolux 1000w Dimmable Ballast, brought to you by Hydro Farm


Nanolux 1000w Dimmable Ballast

The revolutionary Nanolux dimmable digital ballast is a premier choice for your garden. Available in 600 watt and 1,000 watt versions, the Nanolux ballast sets a new standard for others to follow.

The Nanolux uses cutting edge circuit board technology to make it 1/2 the size of traditional digital ballasts at 1/4 the weight.


The Nanolux will operate HPS and MH lamps, and it incorporates a random start feature, which gives each ballast a 0-15 second window upon which it will strike the lamp. This feature allows for a lower initial power draw when using multiple ballasts. In addition, the Nanolux ballast is programmed with a "soft start" and "soft dimming" which helps extend lamp life.

The Nanolux ballasts operate on 100-265 volts and utilize an LED notification system. This indicator allows the user to easily diagnose such problems as fan failure, under or over voltage, short or open circuit protection and thermal overload protection. Customize your light output between 100%, 75% and 50%.

The Nanolux ballast comes pre-wired with Hydrofarm's new dual lamp receptacle, which allows you to plug in all common reflectors without the use of an adapter plug. Enhance your garden with the Nanolux dimmable digital ballast today!

Will this ballast work with a flip box?
If you are using a "Flip Relay Box" and your ballasts are having trouble switching, you must observe the following instructions to ensure proper operation. Most electronic ballasts contain an "error sensing" open circuit safety feature. When used with a flip relay, the ballast will shut itself down and not restart until the user unplugs the ballast to reset it. The ballasts "error sensing" circuitry often misinterprets a "flip" as a dead bulb. This compatibility problem is resolved by following these steps. 1. Set your time switching device (timer, lighting controller) to turn off your ballasts 5 minutes before the flip relay is triggered. (ex. Flip relay = 8am / ballast off Timer = 7:55am) 2. Set the flip relay (ex. 8am) 3. Set your time switching device (timer, lighting controller) to turn on your ballasts 5 minutes after the flip relay was triggered. (ex. Flip relay = 8am / ballast on Timer = 8:05am) 4. Repeat this procedure for the PM flip schedule
I have a 1000W ballast, can I use a 400W or 600W bulb in it?
As a general rule, ballasts can only be used with bulbs that are of the same wattage rating. A 1000W ballast can only be used with a 1000W bulb, a 400W with a 400W, etc.
Can an HPS ballast be used to power a metal halide bulb?
This is never recommended, the ballast and bulb type (wattage and HID bulb type) must match. Convertible ballasts, however, can be switched between MH and HPS modes. There is also the option of using a conversion bulb. This is a bulb that is designed to produce a MH spectrum on a HPS ballasts, or vice versa. Phantom digital ballasts can ignite HPS or MH bulbs, except for the 750W model, which is meant only for HPS.
Are my ballasts Generator-Ready?
All of the ballasts we sell are generator-ready. Generator ready ballasts include: Xtrasun ballasts, Phantom ballasts, Nano ballasts, and Super Grow ballasts

NUTRIENTS - Bend & Central Oregon's only retail source of Advanced Nutrients!

Advanced Nutrients
Hobbyist Bundle 1 liter

The Bigger Yields Flowering System™ is guaranteed to give growers huge yields of the highest quality, without a lot of complicated mixing rates. Simply put, the grower selects which of the bundled levels best suits their own skill level and garden, and can then leave the rest up to the proprietary pH Perfect™ Technology nutrient technologies incorporated into these revolutionary crop feeding nutrients.

The feeding chart provided with each of the bundles, whether the grower is at the Hobbyist, Expert, Professional or Grand Master Grower Level has been developed and refined to give crops optimal nutrient levels and ratios for massive yields every time. Advanced Nutrients™ has developed the first-ever pH Perfect™ Technology nutrient system for crop feeding.


By simply using the value added, combined formulations there are fewer bottles and easier mixing rates. Add 4 ml of base nutrients, and 2 ml of the additives per Liter, and that’s it. The pH of the solution will instantly correct itself into the optimal range when the components are mixed with water. The formulations contain a proprietary “smart” release of acid and alkaline molecules, that will correct the pH to optimum and keep it there.

With the Bigger Yields Flowering System™, nutrient uptake is unparalleled. Chelation is a process that makes nutrients more available to plants on a molecular level. The nutrients supplied to the crop will have the highest level of chelation available from any product in the marketplace, ensuring maximum nutrient uptake; under the widest range of growing conditions.

Combining the pH Perfect™ Technology with an unsurpassed level of chelation ensures that the balanced ratios of the formulations used in the Bigger Yields Flowering System™ are constantly being delivered to and taken up by the plants root system. The formulas used take care of the crop from top to bottom, promoting huge root systems, thicker stems, bigger leaves and the hugest blooms.

Advanced Nutrients™ has added value and simplified the use of the individual products in the system by creating 2-in-1 and even 5-in-1 products. For example, when growers add base nutrients, not only will they be adding balanced ratios of chelated macro and micro elements; they will be adding crop enhancers such as humates, fulvates, amino acids, and even a high quality non-ionic surfactant. These crop enhancers can help to improve the performance of any growing system, whether the grower likes to garden in dirt or produce hydroponically. Each of the growing levels offered gives progressively bigger yields; the grower selects the level that suits their skill level and needs.

Voodoo Juice – is included to promote bigger root systems faster to support the demands of high producing crops. Voodoo Juice is not a fertilizer, and is a proprietary blend of laboratory-bred super bacteria that improve the health of the plant and the growing medium by colonizing and multiplying. Growers will have bigger root systems for better nutrient uptake, healthier plants and fewer cropping problems.

Big Bud – for improved weight, density and quality in flowers and fruits, Big Bud is applied through the peak flowering phase. The correct ratio of phosphorus to potassium along with a full spectrum L-amino complex ensures that rapidly developing blooms and fruits swell to their full size with added density. Big Bud also promotes better tastes, smells and essential contents in harvests.

B-52 – to prevent the effects of environmental stresses from reducing crop gains, a complete and balanced full spectrum of vitamins and other growth cofactors are supplied with applications of B-52. The multiple forms of B vitamins and other bio-available substances help plants to better process water and nutrients for growth without exhausting the plant. The ingredients in B-52 will stimulate better branched plants, bigger root systems and help to nourish beneficial microorganisms.

Overdrive – to achieve maximum fruit swell and blossom girth in the later flowering phase, Overdrive supplies ripening plants with the proper nutritional balance of phosphates, potassium, complexors, vitamins and other important cofactors. Plants near maturity make their biggest weight gains in the final weeks, and Overdrive helps to amplify and extend this natural process for bigger yields. The precise blend is also intended to improve color, fragrances, flavors and essential oil contents in flowers and fruits harvested.
