Warmth, daylight, UV-A and UV-B full: ARCADIA D3 BASKING LAMP! The high-performance terrarium lamp with integrated ballast.
Item number RK1123A
With the Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp you get absolute top technology in terms of lighting in your terrarium. This high-quality mercury vapour lamp solves four problems at once: Your reptiles are supplied with sufficient daylight (visible light), heat radiation, UV-A and UV-B radiation. The ideal beam angle of 50° for the 100 and 160 Watt versions makes the Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp the perfect terrarium lamp, especially in larger terrariums, because the size of the irradiated surface ensures that your reptiles have plenty of space to warm up and sunbathe. The 80 Watt Arcadia D3 UV Basking Lamp has a beam angle of 35° and is therefore ideal for smaller terrariums where light and heat have to be brought to the reptile over a longer distance. Many reptile species need exactly this in order to develop healthily in the terrarium. They automatically visit such "hot spots" in order to absorb sufficient heat and UV radiation - according to their innate behaviour in nature. And this is exactly where the Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp does the perfect job. Reptiles find an ideal place under the light/heat cone of this great terrarium lamp to bring themselves to "operating temperature" and are supplied with vital UV radiation. It is precisely the right amount of UV radiation that ensures optimum D3 synthesis. And that means what? Quite simply: Vitamin D3 is the key to healthy bone and armour building in reptiles and often reptiles (especially herbivorous reptiles) cannot absorb sufficient vitamin D3 through food. However, UV-B radiation, as produced by the Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp, ensures that the body itself produces and stores vitamin D3. With the Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp you promote the development of your terrarium animals absolutely purposefully.
And technically Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp is beyond any doubt anyway - this is what the name Arcadia stands for, which is almost a promise of quality when it comes to terrariums and aquariums. The Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp is a high quality terrarium lamp and was manufactured according to the latest technological standards. The Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp is a brilliant powerhouse with an average service life of 5,000 to 6,000 hours, according to the manufacturer. A peak value! With the Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp, you don't even have to worry about a ballast - it's already integrated into your new terrarium lamp. This allows you to operate the Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp in any conventional E27 lampholder - whereby a ceramic lampholder (porcelain lampholder) is of course mandatory with such a powerful terrarium lamp! A protective grid or basket should also be provided to prevent your reptiles from coming into direct contact with the powerful Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp. For very small terrariums we do not recommend the Arcadia D3 Basking Lamp, because the heat development can quickly lead to temperature problems.
