Bring your reptile UVB, UVA, visible light, and heat - with greater intensity and deeper penetration than conventional fluorescent tubes. The ideal way to prevent calcium deficiency and increase your reptile's appetite, activity, breeding, and color. Nickel-plated threads ensure they will not corrode in humid reptile habitats. Ideal for larger, deeper enclosures and reptiles with high UV demands; penetrates up to 6 ft. Self-ballasted; use in any ceramic socket rated to handle the wattage.
The latest advancement in lighting technology for reptile terrariums. Emits both the UVA and UVB wavelengths, and provides a heat source for your reptile. However, you will need to use a heat source in your terrarium while your PowerSun UV is turned off.
The following species, in captivity, can benefit from the PowerSun UV lamp: Aquatic Turtles, Tortoises (all basking types), Iguanas, Monitors, Bearded Dragons, Sailfin Lizards (Hydrosaurus sp.), Basilisks, Water Dragons (Physignthus sp.), and Chameleons (Chameleo pardalis, C. calyptratus).
Make sure that you have the right lamp. These are designed for medium (100 watt) to large (160 watt) terrariums or veterinary use. All animals should be able to get a minimum of 12" away from the lamp as well as have a "cooler" area away from the lamp (minimum 24").
Open package and carefully remove lamp. Hold lamp by the base and inspect glass envelope for any possible cracks or damage. If lamp shows any signs of damage, see guarantee section of your owner's manual.
PowerSun UV must be housed in a reptile dome clamp fixture with a ceramic or porcelain base. Screw lamp into base, then attach clamp part to something secure like the top rim of terrarium. Position the lamp either on the far right or far left side of the terrarium. This will allow for a warm and cool area. Position dome part of the clamp lamp aiming downward and slightly to the rear of the terrarium. Do not mount the lamp horizontally.
Screen top: make sure the PowerSun UV lamp and fixture are above a screen cover. This lamp gets hot; don't let your animals have direct contact with the lamp.
Plug fixture into electrical outlet. The PowerSun UV will continue to change hue (or color) until it has completely warmed up.
Restarting: The PowerSun UV will take 15 minutes to cool down before being restarted. This is due to a thermal reset feature intended to prevent damage to the lamp by overheating.
Absolutely essential to their health and growth, UV plays a key role in the production of Vitamin D3, which is necessary in the absorption and metabolism of calcium as well as other essential vitamins and minerals.
