Incredibly powerful UV lamp for therapy and prevention of reptile diseases: OSRAM UV VITALUX 300 WATT! Highest production of UV-A and UV-B radiation.
Item number RK0940
The Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt is an absolute classic in terraristics and a UV lamp of the highest cable class. However, the Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt is not a terrarium radiator in the conventional sense. As a combined daylight lamp with UV radiation it is indeed not suitable at all. The Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt is primarily used for therapy or the targeted prevention of metabolic diseases in reptiles - e.g. rickets. The UV-A and UV-B output of the Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt is unbeatably high and in the terrarium it actually looks like a small sun. The light spectrum of the Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt also corresponds approximately to the conditions prevailing in the high mountains on clear days. The effect on the organism of reptiles is overwhelming: the vital function is significantly increased and the extremely high UV-B content brings the vitamin D3 synthesis, which stores calcium that is important for the bone structure of reptiles, to peak performance. This can counteract bone softening of reptiles or the dreaded malformations of the shell in turtles. If you want to use the Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt to prevent such diseases, this is always a good idea with high effectiveness. But keep to certain limits. Depending on the type of reptiles that you want to irradiate with the Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt, a twice daily irradiation duration of 5 to 30 minutes each should not be exceeded.
Of course, there are dangers to this amount of power, which hardly needs to be mentioned. No smoke without fire, no UV light without heat. And during operation, the Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt gets very hot! Therefore: The use of an E27 ceramic socket is absolutely necessary here! Never ever come up with the idea of using this luminous power package in the terrarium with a normal, cheap metal or plastic socket - the consequences could be catastrophic. The gigantic light intensity of the Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt can also be recognised by the fact that this UV lamp is still effective over distances of 1 metre and is therefore suitable even for large terrariums to supply reptiles with vital UV radiation. And another good news: you don't need a separate ballast - that's already integrated in the Osram Ultra Vitalux 300 Watt.
