Product information

Metal-halide lamps (e.g. JBL L-U-W or HQI) require a special ballast for the respective wattage for operation. JBL offers installation kits for 35, 50 and 70 W.

Ideal safety
The quality ballast is equipped with an automatic shut-off that does not even attempt to ignite the lamp in the event of the following problems or switches it off automatically after 2-3 attempts:
- defective metal halide lamp
- too old metal halide lamp

Modelled on nature
Terrarium animals are cold-blooded animals, which are strongly dependent on light, especially on the quality and intensity of the light. Activity, food intake, digestion or rest phases are influenced by the change of day and night and the intensity of light. Depending on the light source, there are differences in output and quality of the light. With metal-halide lamps you can easily install the right light in your terrarium and align it to its best position. Its angle can be freely adjusted up to 180°. The device is heat-resistant to 270 °C.

FAQ
With a combination of the der JBL TempSet Unit L-U-W with metal halide lamps (e.g. JBL ReptilDesert L-U-W Light or JBL ReptilJungle L-U-W Light) the lighting unit suddenly switches itself off.

When the lamp suddenly switches itself off after some time of operation this is usually a sign that the electronic ballast of the lighting unit has overheated. For security reasons the ballast is equipped with an integrated overheating protection. If the ballast is not sufficiently aerated, for example when installed in the gap between terrarium back and living room wall, it comes to an automatic switch off to shelter the unit against overheating damage. In such a case please move the ballast unit to a place with sufficient aeration.

Can L-U-V spotlights (metal halide lamps) be checked for functionality with a common light bulb tester? Are the spotlights defective after such a test?

Metal halide lamps need a high ignition current. Thus the functionality can only be checked with an appropriate ballast. A function test with a conventional light bulb tester will not produce a result.

The L-U-W spotlights do not suffer any damage from such tests. When installed on a suitable ballast, the lamps ignite normally.
