Mega-Ray EB 60 watt Flood UVB Lamp Kit

Product Code # 3234

Mega-Ray EB 60 watt Flood UVB Lamp Kit Currently on Back Order
Mega-Ray® EB 60 watt Flood UVB Lamp Kit - 120 volt
  • 120 volt flood lamp complete with matching ballast box
This is the lamp we've all dreamed of. This lamp is our top-of-the-range unique 60 watt EB Par-38 Narrow Flood Lamp which has been shown in tests to produce similar amounts of UVB to natural sunlight at the recommended distances! This Mac Industries/Westron Lighting original design provides the necessary UVB for your UVB-dependent basking reptiles.

Our 60-watt EB Par-38 Narrow Flood Lamp produces dynamic UVA and UVB, has a significantly reduced decay rate, and comes equipped with a long-life external ballast that reduces bulb failures. This Mac Industries/Westron Lighting original design is found nowhere else in the world!


More UVB - But Safer

This lamp produces more UVB than any other true Mercury Vapor Flood, yet is safer for owners! How? Our design directs the majority of the UVB from the face of the bulb, rather than diffuse it across a 180 angle.

Longer Useful Life

Using cutting edge technology coupled with five years of dedicated research and testing, we have conquered and significantly reduced the huge decay rates so common in other Mercury Vapor lamps. While other bulbs decay as much as 80%, our newly designed SB bulbs decay less than 30% over the life of the bulb. This is unseen in the industry.

Most people with UVB meters
are getting 18+ months use out of our EB bulbs.

Plus:
  • If you have unusual requirements, we may be able to offer you a specially-rated EB lamp with higher or lower UVB output than standard, for a small extra charge. Again, contact us for details.

Specifications

The Mega-Ray® EB flood is a 60-watt EB Par-38 True Frosted Flood Lamp, the only one of its kind in the world. A true flood lamp, it will disperse usable UVB in a 30" circumference at a 20" distance.

MINIMUM distance setting of 12" will produce 150-200 microwatts per square centimeter (uW/cm2) of UVB and 900-1200uW/cm2 of UVA.

MAXIMUM distance setting of 20" will produce 50-75 microwatts per square centimeter (uW/cm2) of UVB. (Distance is measured from lamp face to basking spot or reptile for optimum UVB and heat.)

Warning: Very Little Heat

This 60-watt energy-efficient bulb produces very little heat. Be sure your reptile is heated properly and if necessary, increase the heat at the basking spot using a good heat source like our Mega-Ray® Heat Projector. ALWAYS triple check the temperature at the basking spot - never risk burning your reptile.

Warranty

This bulb is warranted to produce at least 50 microwatts (uW/cm2) as measured with a Solarmeter™ 6.2 at the minimum recommended distances at the end of its warranty period and our testing shows, on the average, much higher readings. Only ReptileUV Mega-Ray® UV products can make this claim!

The product will be replaced with the remaining one-year purchase time covered. For example: If the lamp fails at 9 months, you will receive a replacement item with the remaining 3 months on the warranty.

Not sure if this is the right bulb for you?

Please read our FAQ page. If still confused, email or phone us and let us know:
  1. Your enclosure size & type
  2. Distance from lamp to reptile (or basking area)
  3. Type of reptile
  4. Ambient air temperature in your house.
Phone consultations are the best form.

How Much is Too Much?

Some other new mercury vapor products currently on the market can be deemed dangerous to reptiles, emitting up to 3 times more than the sun does, yet many others emit very little UVB. Basically it comes down to this:

50-250 uW/cm2 mimics the natural environment enough to keep your UV-dependent BASKING reptiles healthy, depending on the species, according to the latest research. At Mac Industries, we choose to be responsible in our approach to high-output UVB-emitting Mercury Vapor lamps. Your reptile's health is just as important to us as the customer service we provide.

So we aim to produce products which provide UVB within these safe limits when our lamps are used properly according to our instructions.


"Forget the rest..... Buy the best."

www.reptileuv.com has the best UVB technology right now.! Microwatt for microwatt, you get the best bulb for your buck. I just received the EB version and set it up. I'm getting a 60 reading at 24" after initial start up.

Rex's colors look amazing under it.

The external ballast is not much trouble at all, in fact I like the fact that it extends the cord and has an in-line on/off switch!
