Ceramic High Pressure Sodium

Yesterday I watched about a new style of lamp.
Ceramic HPS.
Has anyone heard about or used them ?
I thought it very interesting. Similar to when I wanted to use a red metal halide.
I believe it is new Tek.
What do people think ?

Edit: here’s the link.

I think he shared this video recently:

Sounds like the Maxibright works on regular HPS ballasts, where as it seems like the hortilux needs its own proprietary ballast?

Cant find anyone selling the Maxibright yet.

Were buying them for the facility soon. Just have to balance the bulb order with EVERYTHING else. Lol. I’m planning to either checker board them in the room, or do the whole room in them

We do have 2 identical rooms. I’ll do that, this way we can see true side by sides on the genetics

I subscribe to his channel, he’s very informative with led lights, and lighting in general.

I’d definitely like to try one of these bulbs.

@FicklePickle, not sure about the de bulbs, but I think the 600w ones can use ol hps ballasts.

It says in the description you can use hps ballasts for em.
