    Default Led noob lighting question

    Hi setting up first grow

    BudBox Pro tent 1m x 1m x 2m high Par white.

    Mars hydro reflector 192 1000w.

    100mm ox fan and filter kit.

    Fabric planters

    Desk fan

    Ect ect

    My question is... What type of timer is compatible with my light? It seems most timers are only rated to 600w! I don't want any fires and god forbid the contact in the timer welds itself together and my plants cycle gets f@#ked!

    Can anyone help me... I'm ready to go bar this annoying questionmark!

    That light draws about 400watts from the wall.

    Awesome, thanks man! So then I can use a standard 600w heavy duty plug in timer?

    An just use a cheap clock timer on a 12/24 hr. Your draw won't be affected by one of those
