CMH or LEC lighting systems (Ceramic Metal Halide or Light Emitting Ceramic) are new generation ceramic lamps that provide great performance in relation to the energy consumption.
Their ability to reproduce a wide range colour spectrum from blue, required for growth, through the red and far red colours, best for the flowering phase, noting that they also contain UV make their production is higher than in case of using HPS lights.
The main reason for using the new CMH or LEC lighting technology is its ability to create a large floral mass, a large number of buds, with relatively little light power when compared to HPS lights.
With HPS lamps you can aim to achieve the ratio of 1g per watt of power, and with LEC or CMH lights the ratio can be raised up to 1.6g or even more per watt, depending on the skill of the cultivator.
Far red is a part of the light spectrum that few HPS bulbs are capable of reproducing and if they do it is in very low quantities and for a short time, but with CMH or LEC lamps, the opposite is the case.
This new ceramic lighting technology also emits UV rays, which have a direct impact on the development of cannabis plants. In this case the ultraviolet light provokes higher THC production in the plants, with the natural objective of protecting the seeds of the plants from any potential UV light damage.
The level of THC increases in the resin glands to better filter the UV light, just as if it were grown at a high-altitude, as the plants with higher levels of THC usually originate in high mountain regions such as the varieties from the Hindu Kush and Nepal, among other places where the quantity of UV rays are more potent than in regions at a lower altitude.
Lower power consumption and higher production of not only buds but also THC levels are the great advantages of these new CMH or LEC lighting systems, as well as a longer useful life of the bulbs, which can last for up to 6 crops at full performance.
The 630W DE CMH Kit consists of the Lumatek 630W DE CMH lamp (Agro 3100K or Daylight 4200K) and 630W DE CMH Controllable & Dimmable e-ballast.

The Aurora is a state of the art 315W Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH/CDM/LEC) grow light fixture. This is an integrated all-in-one fixture combining a Lumatek controllable electronic ballast, compact hammertone reflector and 315W CMH lamp.
The LUMii Solar Pro Lamp Kit is a complete full fixture CDM lighting unit which when used alongside an HPS bulb will increase plant health and growth, within your indoor grow room.
When it comes to growing a quality end-product, nothing quite compares to CDM (ceramic metal halide) lighting. When used in combination with HPS lighting, the two give rise to healthier plants full of vigour, leading to larger yields of better quality. The LUMii Solar 315w CDM Grow Light is like having sunshine indoors!
The SOLAR 630 holds two 315 lamps. It offers two power switches, one for each lamp, allowing you to choose which lamps you want on or off.
The LUMii Solar 315 is a complete fixture that power 315W ceramic discharge metal-halide (CDM) lamps to give plants the best possible spectrum of light.
The ELEKTROX lighting kit was designed specifically for CMH bulbs. The reflector integrated with the electronic power supply system works with all CMH bulbs with a power of 315W, equipped with the PGZX18 - Twist & Lock connector standard for this type of lamps.
