The 160 Watt projects UVB up to several feet from the lamps surface and is ideal for large terrariums or bird aviaries.

Use Instructions: PowerSun lamps have a large effective range, depending on the wattage of your bulb. Within this range are four zones of increasing UV intensity. These zones are described below and will help you determine the correct basking distance for your reptile(s). Determine the wattage of your lamp and select the appropriate distance based on the recommendations below. Please note that every bulb varies slightly in output due to factors such as age, electrical supply, and external temperatures. These distances are recommended based on average UV output.The operating range is the distance from the lamp to the reptile’s basking site. In order for your reptile to benefit from UVB, you must provide your reptile with the appropriate temperature zone. Be sure to provide an appropriate temperature and UVB gradient. This will allow your reptile to adjust their distance to heat and UVB lamps in order to regulate their body temperature and UVB exposureFERGUSON ZONESZONE 1 0.4 – 0.7 UVIZONE 2 0.7 – 1.0 UVIZONE 3 1.0 – 2.6 UVIZONE 4 2.6 – 3.5+ UVIDANGER 7.0+ UVI SAFETY
