The ILUMINAR Lighting 1000W DE CMH grow light is engineered to be the closest alternative to natural sunlight. We’ve taken cutting edge technology to design a ballast that runs efficiently and a reflector delivers maximum uniformity -- making this CMH grow light more efficient than ever.

The CMH ballast can be run independently or with the Touch+ Controller. The ballasts are also compatible with Priva, Hortimax and Argus controllers (0-10V Protocol), allowing you full control to dial in your gardens to specific requirements. 

Delivering a low frequency, square wave technology, our 1000W CMH Ballast provides a constant maximum voltage to the lamp for an extended period of time giving your plants more photons of light. 


Ceramic Metal Halide or “CMH” lamps provide a wider spectrum and more UV light compared to other grow lights. When a larger yield is the desired outcome, the ILUMINAR Lighting 1000W CMH gives you the competitive edge. Our CMH DE fixture reduces the cost of relamping while also minimizing overhead expenses. 

The CMH ballasts are designed to properly ignite and operate on a low frequency ensuring the safety of you and your crop. *WARNING: Only use a low frequency ballast when running CMH lamps. Using a high frequency ballast increases the risk of the lamp exploding and possibly causing injury.

The 1000W CMH ballast is made for our revolutionary new double ended 1000W CMH Lamp. Featuring a double-jacketed lamp that delivers a full spectrum with more photons than its HPS counterparts, making the new 1000W CMH grow light perfect for high bay solutions. 

The CMH Lamp can be used as supplemental lighting with the 1000W HPS/MH DE fixture checkerboard. With the higher wattage provided in this new fixture, you're able to penetrate deep into the canopy with a higher photon saturation per square foot.
