Running Vertical hps horizontal
    #635099 - 08/18/12 02:47 PM (5 years, 3 months ago)

Quick question,

I have a 1k vertical hps, Its far too hot open, and inefficient vertical. So I was wanting to get an air cooled hood to make life a bit easier. My question is, can I run that bulb horizontally and it be okay?

So far I've found two sites saying conflicting things, one says HPS are universal and can run vert. or horizontal.

The other site said running the bulb in any position its not designed for will decrease output and shorten bulbs lifespan.


Any input would be rad!

Generally the box will tell you what position the bulb is designed to run in.
Some bulbs are designed to run either way, some just one way or the other.
But long story short the box should have the info.

Lol, i feel ya. But the bulb box is blank. Its not too big of a deal. This was just my first time trying an open 1000 with no hood. It sucks. I cant vent outside because of my tent location, The AC is the only thing keeping temps tamed:facepalm:

To be efficient i'm just going to duct 2 600s and bag the 1000. My 1000 results aren't too diff than my last single 600 was anyway. I just cant get it as close to the girls. I almost think I was getting more lumens per plant with the 6 anyways. much less heat and much closer to the canopy.
