ILUMINAR CMH 1000W DE Fixture 208-277V C Series with no Lamp Included / W C-Hanger


The ILUMINAR 1000W DE CMH DE 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 efficiently 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 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 offers the most sophisticated technology, integrating the first of its kind, single-handed “roll-lock” socket for one-handed easy installation when you need it most. 


    • Less heat = reduced cooling costs
  • Random Start Technology
        • At ILUMINAR, we’ve programmed our products to protect your breakers and panels. In multi-fixture applications, our Random Start Technology will ignite one lamp at a time in a random sequence with a millisecond delay so your electrical panel does not feel the draw of numerous fixtures at the same time.  
      • Energy efficient
      • Compatible with ILUMINAR Touch Controller, ILUMINAR HASH Controller, PRIVA and Argus (0-10V Protocol)
      • Ignition Failure Protection 
      • Uniform Light Distribution 
  • Soft Start Technology
      • Prolong lamp life by preventing overload with our Soft Start Technology. Using the dimmable technology built into each ballast,  the lamp will ignite with a limited amount of power and gradually increase the power to the lamp until it reaches maximum brightness.
