The Vertizontal Grow Light System includes a bulb, ballast, reflector and socket assembly. The Vertizontal system is like the traditional vertical reflector with a horizontally mounted bulb. Vertical systems are used for spreading the light out over the largest area possible but usually results in lower overall light intensity. A horizontally mounted bulb will give higher intensity because most of the light coming from the bulb is emitted in a ring around the arc tube and only half of the light needs to be reflected. In a vertical bulb system, most of the light is coming out horizontally and needs to be reflected down. The light is diminished when it's reflected. The Vertizontal system offers higher light intensities that a vertical system because the lamp is mounted horizontally and only half of the light needs to be reflected. The Vertizontal is 48 inches across and 10 inches deep. It has polished aluminum in the center for higher reflection. The socket mount is adjustable for positioning the bulb in the center of the reflector.
The Sun System 10 Ballasts are the low cost option for the grower on a budget. They operate the same as other ballast with the same efficiency. They have rubber feet to reduce vibration noise.

The Sun System Switchable Ballasts can run halide or sodium bulbs just by flipping a switch. The 1000 watt systems use a standard 1000 sodium ballast and the switch disconnects the ignitor. For the 400 watt systems, a special ballast is required because the voltage difference between the halide and sodium is too large. The open circuit voltage for the standard halide 1000 is 430 volts and 435 volts for a sodium 1000. A standard halide 400 has an open circuit voltage of 300 volts but the sodium 400 is only 190 volts. So the 400 watt switchable systems switch the ignitor and change the lamp tap on the transformer too.
