Give your reptile the benefits of natural sunlight with the Exo Terra Solar Glo All in One Reptile Lamp. Reptiles require both UVA and UVB light to produce vitamin D3 which aids in the absorption and metabolization of calcium. The Exo Terra Solar Glo All in One Reptile Lamp is the choice of professional breeders as it provides the proper balance of ultraviolet light (including UVA and UVB), visual light and infrared light (heat), in one easy-to-install bulb. Exo Terra Solar Glo All in One Reptile Lamp is a full spectrum light with carefully tuned peaks to ensure appetite, activity, brilliant colors, and optimal calcium absorption.

Instructions
  • If the bulb is to be mounted inside the terrarium, then the minimum height is 48 inches for the 125W and 60 inches for the 160W Solar Glo. Be sure to provide enough space to allow the animal to be a minimum of 12 inches from the bulb's surface in addition to providing a temperature and UV gradient within the terrarium.

  • Carefully remove the bulb from its packaging, hold bulb by the base and inspect the glass envelope for any possible cracks or damage.

  • The Exo Terra Solar Glo must be housed in a fixture with a ceramic/porcelain base that is rated for at least the wattage of the lamp. DO NOT use a plastic socket as it is a fire hazard and will void the warranty. The Solar Glo must be mounted in a vertically oriented fixture so the bulb points straight down and NOT at an angle.

  • Mounting this bulb at an angle will reduce its burn life and will void any warranty.

  • Do not use this bulb in conjunction with a dimmer or thermostat.

  • This bulb is sensitive to high temperatures and vibration. Make sure that it is mounted in a place with good ventilation and where it will not be disturbed. Moving the bulb while switched ON will shorten its life and void the warranty.

  • Mounting Location: The Solar Glo will function best when mounted outside the terrarium where it is not exposed to extreme heat, humidity and vibration. If you must mount the bulb inside the terrarium, make sure your reptile cannot come in contact with it. If the bulb shuts off unexpectedly, a safety feature (thermal reset) has likely occurred.

  • Plug fixture into an electrical outlet (surge protector is recommended).The Solar Glo will take five minutes to warm up and reach its full intensity. The bulb's output will continue to change hue (or color) until it has completely warmed up.

  • Restarting: The Solar Glo bulb will take 15 minutes to cool down after turning off the bulb, before being restarted. This is due to a thermal reset feature intended to prevent damage due to overheating the bulb

  • If the Solar Glo shuts off for no apparent reason, one of the following condition may exist:

  • The power being supplied to your outlet is inappropriate or fluctuating. Small changes in line voltage can trip the bulb's thermal reset mechanism. If the voltage is consistently low, then the bulb will not be able to function properly. Check with your local utility or your electrician to verify your voltage. Overdriving the bulb (i.e. high voltage levels) by as little as 10% can decrease burn life by more than 50% and would void any warranty.

  • There is too much heat in or around the terrarium and the bulb The Solar Glo's thermal reset feature will shut the bulb off for a cool down period if it gets too hot. Using the bulb in a place or fixture that is not well ventilated can cause heat buildup. If the bulb occasionally shuts off to cool down and later restarts (usually about 15 minutes), this is normal.
