We are delighted that we were able to win with Philips a leading European manufacturer for metal halide technology as production partner for our new Bright Control PRO series. Thanks to the SOFT Start function and the intelligent chip control we cannot only guarantee flickerfree light but also an increased lamp life. The controllers are not only efficient and energy saving but also have several safety functions that turn of the device in case of overheating or a missing/ broken lamp.
Of course the new Bright Control PRO controllers are built in compact plastic casing and have the same Plug and Play connectors as their predecessors. This way they can be easily connected to the Lucky Reptile Thermo Socket PRO luminaires with PnP connectors. No electrical installation is necessary – simply plug together and you are ready to go! The new Bright Control PRO III is a multi-talent and can operate Bright Sun Lamps with 35W, 50W or 70W! A sliding switch on the side allows setting the desired wattage. Now you only need to buy one ballast. For raising juveniles in a small vivarium you can operate it with a 35W lamp. When the animals move to a bigger cage you only have to buy a more powerful lamp but can keep using the controller. The different seasons of the year can also be more easily simulated with a Bright Control PRO III. So you can use a stronger lamp in summer time than in spring or fall. The main advantage of the Bright Control PRO III compared to the Bright Control EVO are not only the better electronics and safety functions but the multiwattage mode that effectively allows you to save money. The Bright Control PRO II controllers for 100W and 150W are single-wattage devices and cannot be operated with different wattages! You have to match the wattages of controllerand lamp but they sport same modern electronics and safety functions as the Bright Control PRO III.
Both Bright Control PRO II and III have been optimized for use with our Bright Sun lamps to ensure the safe functioning of the Bright Sun and an optimal spectrum. Since we cannot guarantee the spectrum and functioning of the Bright Sun when using a different brand ballast, the Bright Control PRO are our recommendation for the Bright Sun for best and safe performance.
