Arcadia Electronic operating unit for T5 fluorescent tubes
With the electronic Arcadia operating unit for one or two T5 fluorescent tubes you get the latest top technology in your terrarium. In our opinion, the Arcadia operating unit for T5 fluorescent tubes is one of the best devices of its kind, is of absolutely high quality and equipped with incredibly great details. With this operating unit, real terrarium keepers obviously thought carefully about how such a device should best be adapted to the daily work in the terrarium. And that starts with the fact that the Arcadia operating unit for T5 fluorescent tubes is waterproof (thanks to IP67 protection class) and therefore functions reliably even in humid terrarium environments. Irrigation systems and nebulisers cannot harm the Arcadia operating unit for T5 fluorescent tubes at all and the operating unit can even be used for aquariums.
The electronic ballast of the Arcadia operating unit for T5 fluorescent tubes does all the work and provides absolutely flicker-free light, just like reptiles love it. In addition, the operating unit has independent lamp technology, which turns out to be ingenious in practice: if one of the installed fluorescent tubes fails, the other continues to burn normally. Among the T5 ballasts, only the Arcadia operating unit can master this discipline. The Ultra Seal sockets of the Arcadia operating unit for T5 fluorescent tubes significantly increase safety - moisture simply has no chance here. The Arcadia operating unit for T5 fluorescent tubes also proves to be ingeniously well thought out when it comes to "mounting in the terrarium". The practical plug connections are so small and compact that you don't have to drill large holes in the terrarium walls. This even makes it possible to simply route the plug connection through an existing perforated sheet ventilation system. The cable length to the ballast is a good 3 meters, which gives maximum flexibility when installing and connecting. In addition, there is a 1.5-metre-long mains supply line. And while we're at the installation: The ballast of the Arcadia operating unit for T5 fluorescent tubes has practical mounting holes with which you can fasten the ballast directly from the outside to the rear wall of the terrarium, for example. This makes the terrarium environment always look wonderfully tidy. Mounting clamps to install the end caps for the fluorescent tubes on the terrarium ceiling are of course also included. You can also fix the fluorescent tubes to the ceiling with the enclosed T5 clips made of stainless steel.
If you want to increase the luminous efficacy of your T5 fluorescent tubes, we recommend the use of a suitable reflector, such as the Arcadia T5 reflector, which is precisely matched to this great operating unit. You get up to 100% more light and UV output without paying even a cent more for electricity. This performance plus is particularly noticeable with the high-performance T5 terrarium tubes: One T5 fluorescent tube with reflector replaces up to 4 conventional T8 terrarium tubes with similar power consumption.
