Manufacturer Info

CoralVue Aquarium Supplies
CoralVue, founded in 2002, provides high-quality aquarium lighting at prices any hobbyist can afford. The company was formed by David D’Aquin, an underwater video and lighting expert who has teamed with commercial divers, the U.S. Navy and National Geographic on a variety of projects. D’Aquin took his knowledge of lighting and electronics and focused these passions on creating products for the aquarium industry. In just a short time, CoralVue pioneered the development of the 400-watt double-ended metal halide bulb and the unique color temperature spectrum of ReefLux metal halide bulbs. CoralVue also develops high-quality electronic metal halide ballasts to power their bulbs. They offer ballasts in single, dual, triple and dimmable lamp models. To compliment their line of lighting products, CoralVue entered the protein skimmer and calcium reactor market in 2004.

Good Ballast, breaker warning

by
Reviewers Rating Great


Posted: 8/8/2015 from Post Falls, ID UNITED STATES
4.0 5
Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: Good ballast so far does what it says it does but a fair warning is if you have Square D GFCI breakers this will trip them, doesn't matter what voltage it will trip it as I've tried 175-250's and the 250-400 ballasts of luxcore. I had galaxy e-ballasts before hand with 0 tripping and this one trips it 100% of the time. I ended up replacing the GFCI breaker with a normal one and put a GFCI on the outlets which it doesn't trip (Square D's GFCI's are exteremly sensitive so no idea what the galaxys never tripped it) but just a fair warning to people out there with square d breakers (experience with the homeline not the QO line)

Comments: Had to replace a failed magnetic ballast for 250 watt metal halide lamp. Need to rewire for the different connector to the light but worked fine. Much less heat than magnetic ballast. Have not tried the super lumens output.
