If you are planning to run more than one HID grow light, you will need to use a heavy duty contactor to take the load and strike the lamps safely and Maxiswitch Pro Contactors will do just that.
HID lighting requires a heavy electrical load to ignite and run the lamp and a regular domestic plug timer cannot handle the high load needed. The plug timer will become damaged and may be an electrical hazard as usually the contacts inside the timer will weld themselves together, preventing your light from turning off. Maxiswitch Pro Contactors will allow you to manage your lighting effectively and safely, by diverting the high load from the timer through a contactor or relay.
Maxiswitch Pro Contactors are manufactured in the UK from only top quality components which include GE contactors and Grasslin timers. The units also have heavy duty cable and wiring including 13A switched sockets.
Total maximum switching capacity must not exceed 13amp for the Pro 2 way and 26amp for the Pro 4, 6 and 8 way contactor.
