Sunleaves Luma 2.0 Ballasts
Thank you for choosing to grow with Sunleaves Garden Products! Your satisfaction
and success are important to us. For best results, read the following instructions
before installing any Sunleaves ballast. Following these simple guidelines will prolong
the life of your ballast and keep you growing for years to come.
For the Following 120/240V Sunleaves Luma 2.0 Ballasts:
• 400w, 600w, and 1000w High Pressure Sodium • 400w and 1000w Metal Halide • 400w and 1000w Two-Way*
1. Insert lamp holder (Sun Brite Lamp Holder sold separately) into reflector. Use included mounting hardware to secure lamp holder in reflector via
two pilot holes.
2. Adjust lamp holder cylinder so that lamp will be approximately centered in the reflector. Tighten adjustment screws securely.
3. Hang reflector level. We recommend a pair of Sunleaves Flexi-Hangers or a sturdy chain.
4. Install lamp and ensure it is centered in reflector If not loosen adjustment screws and reposition as necessary, then re-tighten adjustment screws
securely. Wipe lamp clean with a soft dry cloth.
5. Plug the male end of the lamp holder cord firmly into the female receptacle on the proper ballast for your chosen lamp type and wattage. Plug
the ballast into a grounded 120v (or 240v, if using 240v ballast option) power source or timer, and you’re ready to grow.
Converting Ballasts from 120V to 240V
Ballasts come with a 120-volt power cord. To switch from 120 to 240 volts, you will need a 240-volt power cord, available separately.
1. Unplug ballast from power supply. Remove 120V power cord from 120V receptacle on ballast.
2. Loosen screw on power selector plate. Rotate power selector plate 180 degrees. Tighten screw on selector plate.
3. Insert 240V power cord into 240V receptacle on ballast. Plug into appropriate 240V power source or timer.
Note: All Sunleaves Luma 2.0 Ballasts automatically come on once connected to power source.
*For any Sunleaves Luma 2.0 Two-Way Ballast, ALWAYS unplug ballast and let cool for at least 15 minutes before switching between metal
halide and high pressure sodium capabilities.

Sunleaves Luma 2.0 Troubleshooting
My ballast doesn’t hum or vibrate when I plug it in.
First check that your surge protector, timer, or controller unit is working
properly, if applicable. Then test your outlet by plugging in a different,
functioning appliance. If the outlet doesn't seem to be working, check
your breaker box for a tripped or blown fuse. If the fuses and outlets
are working properly and the ballast does not come on, follow the warranty claim steps.
My ballast is humming loudly, is this normal?
Every Luma 2.0 ballast generates some noise when powered on and
the higher the wattage, the more noise it will make. If you can't hold a
normal conversation over your ballast when in operation or if you hear
rattling or some other indication that something may be wrong, follow
warranty claim steps.
I turned off my ballast for a minute and now it won't come back on.
All Luma 2.0 ballasts require a “time out” period when turned off. Wait
at least 15 minutes from the time the ballast was turned off/unplugged
before turning back on/plugging back in or nothing will happen for
several minutes.
My bulb doesn’t come on.
First make sure the lamp wattage and type (metal halide or high pressure sodium) match the wattage and type of your ballast. Also make
sure the lamp is securely screwed into the socket. If lamp still isn't firing, replace it with another that you are certain is functioning properly.
If the new bulb doesn’t come on, follow the warranty claim steps.
I can see a piece of loose glass inside of my lamp. Is this normal?
This is a normal occurrence and should not alter lamp performance. To
be sure, check the exterior glass of your lamp for cracks and replace if
you find any obvious damage.
The circuit breaker gets triggered every time I plug in my ballast.
Take care that you are not connecting too many appliances to the
same circuit. If the breaker trips when running only the ballast, consult
a qualified electrician that can safely check for potential problems.
