Powerbox by GreenPower

Powerbox GreenPower
Starting at £45.95

Powerbox solves the problem of how to connect all grow room appliances to a single power source in a grow room. This is much more than a multi-channel extension as it has been developed specifically to be used in a grow room environment. Available as a 4, 6 and 8 way unit, all run 26 amp (13 each side), and are suitable for the hobby to the professional grower.

The Green Power Powerbox is used to safely power up to eight appliances in your grow area from two separate power cables, with a high maximum load of 13 amps for each set of four sockets. The Powerbox really comes into its own when used in conjunction with a lighting control system, such as the Gavita Master Controller. You can then use it to power your ballasts while the Gavita Master Controller regulates on and off times (as well as doing a whole lot more). Part of a truly innovative approach to lighting control!

  • Part of a cutting edge solution to lighting control
  • Works alongside the Gavita Master Controller
  • Runs up to 8 x 600w ballasts
  • 13 amp limit for each set of four sockets
  • Can be used to power any grow room appliance
  • Flip covers to protect the sockets
  • High quality 3m power cables
  • Hanging bracket for easy installation

The Green Power 8-Way Powerbox Contains:

1 x 8-Way Green Power Powerbox - Power Distribution Unit

How the Green Power Powerbox Works:

The Green Power Powerbox can be used to power eight separate appliances from two 13 amp power cables. The Powerbox was originally designed as a heavy-duty power distribution unit, but it really comes into its own when teamed with the new Gavita Master Controller and the E-series range of Gavita ballasts. This technology is relatively new and requires that you have a slight re-think about the way your lighting system is put together. Don’t worry though, the process is fairly simple and requires very little change. Here, the switching on and off of ballasts is dictated by a central lighting controller that has no influence over the power supply. Previously, the switching of ballasts was regulated by a timer that was used in conjunction with a contactor unit. When it was time to switch lighting off, the timer connected to the contactor would instantly switch off the power to any ballasts it was driving. Though this works fine, in order for the Gavita Master Controller to reach its full potential, a few changes had to be made.

In this new design, the ballasts that drive your lamps have access to a continuous power source without the need of a timer unit. Instead, the Gavita Master Controller connects directly to the ballasts via digital cables, communicating information about when to switch on, when to switch off and a whole lot more! The Powerbox supplies continuous power to your ballasts, spreading the load over two power cables. Each set of four sockets on the 8-way Powerbox can handle a combined load of 13 amps, allowing you to power up to eight 600w ballasts. Always check their load in amps to ensure that they sit within range. Consult a professional if you are at all unsure.

This unit is also available as in 4-way and 6-way versions (all are rated at 26amp – 13amp for each side of 2, 3 or 4 sockets).

Using the Greenpower Powerbox:

Take the two plugs at the end of the two power cables coming from the bottom of the unit and connect them to two separate power sockets. Do not connect both plugs to a single multi-socket! If you are planning on using equipment with a combined load (on all eight sockets) exceeding 13amp, then please ensure that the mains sockets you choose are linked to a separate ring circuit. If you are at all unsure, consult a professional for advice. Once you are happy that everything is correct, you can then plug in and power any electrical appliances required for your indoor garden. Just ensure that a load of no more than 13 amps is placed on each side of four sockets. This allows you to power up to 8 x 600w ballasts. Always check the load of each ballast to ensure that it sits within the correct range and consult a professional if at all unsure.

Please note:

The Powerbox is not a contactor and should not be used with a timer. Use a controller unit for switching on and off ballasts etc.
