Simply screw the convertor into your current reflectors E40 fitting and screw the CDM lamp into the convertor in your reflector as tightly as possible by gripping the lamp with a clean, dry cloth. If the lamp is not screwed in as tightly as possible, arcing can occur between the centre contact of the lamp and the lamp-holder.
This melts the solder contact on the bottom of the lamp, causing damage and making it un-useable.
Make sure that the lamp is clean and completely free of fingerprints and other contaminants. Finally, make sure that your reflector is hung at the correct height for your CDM Lamp.
The wattage of your ballast MUST match the wattage of the lamp you are using or there will be a high risk of fires or equipment damage. Only use the Maxibright ballast that comes with this kit for firing up the CDM lamps.
Never use a HPS or MH ballast with CDM lamps. Connect the mains plug into an electrical outlet socket and switch on.
The Maxibright CDM ballast will start-up and light the lamp.
