The Gavita HortiStar 1000 DE comes with a replaceable high efficiency Vega aluminum reflector. As an alternative, inlay reflectors are available. It is specifically designed for 750W and 1000 W double ended lamps. The lamp cord terminal is shielded by a metal housing. Installation is very easy with the two eye bolts.
Double ended lamps have their connections at each side of the lamp (hence double ended), removing the need for a frame support wire inside of the lamp. The absence of a frame wire eliminates any shadows in the beam. Instead of vacuum the double ended lamps are gas filled which allows for a smaller arc tube, improving the optical control. The Gavita HortiStar 1000 DE reflector is specifically designed for this type of lamp.
