CLOSE PROXIMITY DE-HPS LIGHTING KIT
DE-HPS intensity—up close and personal with your crop. This unique close proximity fixture can be safely positioned at just 16 to 18 inches (40 – 45 cm) from the canopy making it the ideal choice for growers with restricted / domestic ceiling height or multi-tier cultivators. Built around our own custom 750W enhanced spectrum DE-HPS lamp, this state-of-the-art lighting fixture can be dialed down to 600W with virtually no spectral degradation—setting it miles apart from comparable DE-HPS fixtures.
INCREDIBLE CANOPY PENETRATION WITHOUT COMPROMISING FOOTPRINT
The Hellion 600/750W DE-HPS easily covers a 5’ x 3’3” (1.5m x 1m) footprint—even when positioned at the minimum recommended distance from the canopy. It’s all thanks to the unique, open-ended design of the Adjust-A-Wings Defender reflector and Super Spreader. Convection heat rises out of the reflector which, in turn, pulls air up through the canopy keeping it healthy, cool and fresh. Meanwhile the Super Spreader mitigates the risk of hot spots directly beneath the lamp, affording the legendary close placement and canopy penetration that is unique to Adjust-A-Wings.
NO WAREHOUSE? NO PROBLEM!
Commercial warehouse growers using 1000W DE-HPS lamps in deep-dish, greenhouse style reflectors are typically forced to allow five to seven feet (152 – 213 cm) above the plant canopy in order to avoid over-heating their plants. This “brute-force” approach massively compromises overall system efficiency as a huge amount of light is inevitably lost to walls and space outside of the active growing area.
NO OTHER REFLECTOR GETS CLOSE
Small, deep-dish greenhouse-style DE-HPS fixtures are simply not suitable for grow tents or domestic indoor growers because they trap heat and concentrate radiant emissions. However, the Hellion 600/750W DE-HPS has been built for grow rooms and grow tents, not greenhouses! As such, it is capable of delivering all the promise of advanced DE-HPS technology without the dreaded burn associated with misused greenhouse lighting.
The Hellion 600/750W DE-HPS offers increased efficiency, higher output, improved lighting spectrum, and longer PAR maintenance (economically viable lamp life) leading to larger yields, lower cost of ownership, and higher quality produce throughout the crop.
Deep-Dish Style Reflector
Adjust-A-Wings Double-Parabolic Reflector
In search of unmatched efficiency, performance and spectral integrity we developed and engineered our own e-ballast and lamp as a pair. When ballast and lamp manufacturers develop their wares separately, they are forced to engineer generic products for a wide market (lamps to work on the largest range of ballasts vs. ballasts which are able to fire the widest variety of lamps). Compromises are invariably necessary.
By taking a holistic “ground-up” approach we believe that we are engineering for the real world of the grower—and delivering a flowering spectrum as close to perfection as anything available on the market.
PAIR WITH THE HELLION 630W DE-CMH FOR UNBEATABLE MIXED SPECTRUM APPLICATIONS
When growers combine the orange-rich spectrum of the Hellion 600/750W DE-HPS with the Hellion 630W DE-CMH, something magical happens. Think “Emerson Effect” on steroids! Some commercial growers still believe that “mixed spectrum” can be achieved by bolting a 315W CMH next to every other 1000W DE-HPS on their warehouse ceiling. However, to truly unlock the power of mixing spectra, both blue-rich and orange-rich light needs to be delivered to the plant canopy at comparable incident intensities.
The open-ended design of the Adjust-A-Wings medium Defender reflector allows Deep Spectral Mixing to occur even when the lighting fixtures are positioned at the recommended close proximity. The light crossed over perfectly, bathing plants in the ideal mix of light. Inside the chloroplasts of the plants’ leaves, photosystem I and photosystem II are fully stimulated—not just because both spectra are present—but, crucially, because they are both delivered at high radiant intensity.
LONGER LAMP LIFE
Adjust-A-Wings reflectors do not suffer from heat build-up unlike small, deep-dish greenhouse style hoods. Its open-ended design allows heat to easily escape meaning lamps run cooler and offer high PAR maintenance for up to two years.
Compatible with all leading brands of digital lighting controllers.

WHY ARE ADJUST-A-WINGS ADJUSTABLE?
In any living system, the smallest adjustment can make a big difference!
Adjust-A-Wings are designed to allow growers to mimic the subtle changes in light quality which occur outdoors over the growing season. By widening or narrowing the width of the Adjust-A-Wings, growers can adjust the spread and radiant intensity of the light.
The unique, double-parabolic Medium Adjust-A-Wings Defender reflector supplied with the Hellion 600/750W Close Proximity DE-HPS kit has five width settings and five lamp height settings. Narrower settings are used for vegetative growth and transition. Wide settings are for transition to generative production (flowering). Medium setting for maturation.
The HELLION UHF electronic ballast has three power settings (450W, 600W and 750W) to drive the perfectly matched HELLION DE-HPS lamp at three key intensity bands.
WHAT DOES THE SUPER SPREADER DO?
The Super Spreader fits directly beneath the lamp and spreads radiant emissions so they are more evenly distributed across the footprint. This ingenious device really comes into its own with 750W DE-HPS lamps. It affords a much closer placement to your plant canopy than is possible with other grow lights so growers are able to deliver unmatched levels of incident intensity to their plants without causing heat stress to the plants directly beneath the lamp.
Put another way, the Super Spreader essentially gives growers a much wider margin for error, allowing deeper penetration of light into the plant canopy, promoting increased production on second and third tier flowering sites, not just at top canopy level.
