The new AC/DE reflector from Sunlight Supply is a unique air-cooled shade designed to be used with the new style of double ended high pressure sodium bulbs.
The AC/DE reflector is unique in that the air-cooled feature of the shade uses patented sealed optic technology that cools the shade without cooling the bulb below it’s proper operating temperature. Due to their design, standard tubular air-cooled shades can cool the bulb too much and can cause a loss of spectrum. As you will have seen when your lights turn on the colour output will change as the lamp heats up. Cooling the lamp will therefore change the colour of the light being emitted and you will lose a certain band of colour depending on how cool the bulb gets. You may not be able to see this with the naked eye but your plants will be able to tell the difference!
The interior construction of the AC/DE reflector allows for maximum optical efficiency and uniformity and is made from 95% reflective textured German aluminum and has 98% reflective corner inserts that give the AC/DE it’s amazingly even spread and diffusion. The strong and durable galvanized steel housing offers a long lasting quality build that will last you for years to come. Like all Sunlight Systems products, the AC/DE is manufactured with exacting standards and the double neoprene gaskets create an air tight seal you can rely on. The hinged glass lens on the AC/DE reflector makes changing bulbs and cleaning glass a quick and easy job.
