How to

Wiring diagrams
These are the basic wiring diagrams for the ballasts and other parts we offer. Each section will have information on a variety of ultraviolet lamp configurations for both uv curing and hydroponics use. These are general diagrams only. If you are unfamiliar with how to wire uv lamps or bulbs, you might want to have an electrician do the work, as we are dealing with high voltages, with the risks of injury or electrocution.

This is a good place to explain one fact about the new generation of electronic ballasts. Unlike old ballasts which had a fixed wattage, and would deliver it to the lamp no matter what size lamp you put on it, the new generation that we use are adaptive. This means the output is adjusted down automatically if you put the ballast on a 4 foot lamp instead of a 6 foot lamp. The same is true if you go from a T12 lamp to a T7 (T12 = 1.5" diameter, T8 = 1 inch). Some of our ballasts will power multiple lamp configurations, depending on how wire it, but the actual wattage will change depending on that wiring and how many lamps you use.

Solacure Means Quality

Solacure ultraviolet lamps aren't just good, we guarantee they are the best or we will give you your money back. Our patented glass is more transparent to UVA and UVB. Our custom cathode/anode sets lets you run 2 to 3 times more power than a standard lamp in the same size. All of our lamps have built in reflectors. We have a lamp for every need.

We stand behind everything we sell and guarantee each will perform exactly to specification, or we will replace them. We don't want your business this week, we want it every week, and we are willing to earn it. There really is a difference in quality when it comes to ultraviolet bulbs, and Solacure tops the list. Order online, over the phone, or call us if you need a custom UV lamp made, with fairly low minimums (around 2000 pieces). We can make it happen.

Buy with confidence: We like what we do, and we've been doing it for over 30 years.
We accept all major credit cards for our uv curing lamps
