The Arcadia 14% UVB Dragon lamp is the most powerful HO-T5 reptile lamp in the world.
It has been made in Germany by experts to provide not only high quantities of UVB radiation but to also provide this energy without any limitation to the colour and quantity of visible light.
Available in 24W, 39W and 54W (22", 34" and 46" lengths).
The Arcadia Reptile Dragon lamp is a bold, white, full spectrum and VERY bright High Output T5 UVB projection lamp for captive reptiles.
The lamp represents an almost doubling of light (LUX) and has a CRI of over 95 which will enable you as the keeper to see your animal in all of its natural glory.
Upper index basking for a desert species is set at a massive 15 or 35-40cm from the reflected lamp to the animal back at the basking or shortest point.
Making this lamp simply perfect to be used in vivaria of 20/50cm high or more. It will also help greatly for those that use terraria with a mesh top.
Offering a significant increase in both visible light and UV output compared with T8 lamps of similar length.
The Benefits of T5 Technology:
- Smaller diameter lamp, 16mm compared to 26mm
- Flicker free, all T5 lamps operate on efficient, high frequency ballasts
- High output T5 lamps are especially useful for captive reptiles. The extra power that these lamps provide will help a keeper to generate a good UV gradient and provide safe basking quantities of UV over a much wider and deeper area.
Length: 22 in. 550mm
Lamps can be fragile pieces of equipment. Please follow the following steps to ensure the safe fitting and use of fluorescent lamps.
At either end of a fluorescent lamp you will see two brass coloured connection pins. These are the electrodes that take energy from the controller to start and run the lamp. These are quite fragile by nature. It is imperative that both pins are safely located into the pin sockets inside the lamp holder before the lamp is pressed into place. Failure to line the pins up correctly will cause the pins to bend and snap and break through the lamp cap rendering the lamp unusable.
The Ultra-seal lamp ring must be unscrewed from the lamp holder and placed over the lamp prior to fitting and only re-seated onto the lamp holder when you are sure that the lamp pins are seated correctly. High Output T5 lamp leads must be fully unwound also or you may notice lamp flickering or beaks in illumination. You can also use a very small amount of a substance like Vaseline to lubricate the lamp ring and so stop it fusing to the lamp after long periods of heat. After cooling lamps can be wiped clean with a damp cloth once every two weeks or so to remove any dust build up from the lamp, this in turn will help to maintain the lamps full output. The all important reflector should also be wiped clean at the same time.
Beacuse of Royal Mail size restrictions you can not select "Special Delivery", "Tracked 24/48" or "Standard Delivery" as the shipping method for tubes over 30inches long, they must be sent by courier, if you live in the more remote parts of the UK or off-shore islands this will be very expensive.
