Terms and Conditions

Online terms and conditions between a business and consumer for the sale of goods

These terms and conditions form the basis on which you can visit us and our website.  Please read them carefully as they contain important information.

General terms and conditions

This site is owned and operated by Benjamin Biggs t/as Plantasia of Brill View Farm, Ludgershall Road, Piddington, Bicester, OX25 1PU. If you have any queries about these terms and conditions or if you have any comments or complaints on or about our website, you can contact us at [email protected] or 08707 555225.

The contract between us

We must receive payment of the whole of the price for the goods that you order before your order can be accepted. Payment of the price for the goods represents an offer on your part to purchase the goods, which will be accepted by us only when the goods are dispatched. Only at this point is a legally binding contract created between us.

Ownership of rights

All rights, including copyright, in this website are owned by or licensed to [insert your business name]. Any use  of this website or its contents, including copying or storing it or them in whole or part, other than for your own personal, non-commercial use, is prohibited without our permission. You may not modify, distribute or repost anything on this website for any purpose.

Accuracy of content

We have taken care in the preparation of the content of this website, in particular to ensure that prices quoted are correct at the time of publishing and that all goods have been described accurately. However, orders will only be processed if there are no material errors in the description of the goods or their prices as advertised on this website. Any weights, dimensions and capacities given about the goods are approximate only.

Damage to your computer

We try to ensure that this website is free from viruses or defects. However, we cannot guarantee that your use of this website or any websites accessible through it will not cause damage to your computer. It is your responsibility to ensure that the right equipment is available to use the website. Except in the case of negligence on our part, we will not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise to computer equipment as a result of using this website.


All orders are subject to acceptance and availability. If the goods you have ordered are not available from stock, we will contact you by e-mail or phone (if you have given us details). You will have the option either to wait until the item is available from stock or to cancel your order.

Ordering errors

You are able to correct errors on your order up to the point on which you click on “submit” during the ordering process.


  • 7.1    The prices payable for goods that you order are as set out on our website. All prices are inclusive of VAT at the current rates and are correct at the time of entering information.

  • 7.2    Where it is not possible to accept your order to buy goods of the specification and description at the price indicated, we will advise you by email, and offer to sell you the goods of the specification and description at the price stated in the email and will state in the email the period for which the offer or the price remains valid.

Payment terms

We will take payment upon receipt of your order from your credit or debit card. We accept no liability if a delivery is delayed because you did not give us the correct payment details. If it is not possible to obtain full payment for the goods from you, then we can refuse to process your order and/or suspend any further deliveries to you. This does not affect any other rights we may have.

Delivery charges

Delivery charges vary according to the type of goods ordered.


  • 10.1 Our delivery charges are set out on our website.
  • 10.2  You will be required to pay extra for delivery and it might not be possible for us to deliver to some locations.
  • 10.3  Please note that there will be a surcharge to deliver to addresses outside the United Kingdom, including the Isle of Wight, the Isle of Man, the Scottish Isles, parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Isles.
  • 10.4  We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. Please be precise about where you would like the goods left if you are out when we deliver. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered in accordance with your delivery instructions (unless this is caused by our negligence). We will aim to deliver the goods by the date quoted for delivery but delivery times are not guaranteed and therefore time is not of the essence. In any event, we will aim to deliver your goods within 30 days from the day after the day we received your order. If delivery is delayed beyond this time, we will contact you and either agree a mutually acceptable alternative date, or offer you a full refund.
  • 10.5 We can only deliver to the address of the card that the payment is taken from.
  • 10.6 You will become the owner of the goods you have ordered when they have been delivered to you. Once goods have been delivered to you they will be held at your own risk and we will not be liable for their loss or destruction.

Risk and ownership

Risk of damage to or loss of the goods passes to you at the time of delivery to you. If you choose to use your own courier then the risk passes to you as soon as the goods are handed to your courier. You will only own the goods once they have been successfully delivered.

Cancellation rights

  • 12.1    Under The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 SI 2013/3134 you have the legal right to cancel your order up to 14 calendar  days after the day on which you receive your goods (with the exception of any made to order items). You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty.
  • 12.2    Should you wish to cancel your order, you can use the cancellation form provided at the end of these terms and conditions, or alternatively you can notify us in writing by any durable medium (for example letter sent by post, fax or e-mail).

If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery, you should not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own cost and risk as soon as possible.
  • 12.5    Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your contract, and we have either received the goods back or, if earlier, received evidence that you have sent the goods back, we will refund any sum debited by us from your credit or debit card within 14 calendar days.
  • 12.6    We may make a deduction from your refund for any loss in the value of the goods supplied if the loss is the result of unnecessary handling by you (for example using or wearing the goods prior to cancellation)

  • 13.2    If we do not process your order for the above reasons, we will notify you by e-mail and will re-credit to your account any sum deducted by us from your credit/debit card as soon as possible, but in any event within 14 days.


  • 14.1    Unless agreed otherwise, if you do not receive goods ordered by you within 30 days of the date on which you ordered them and decide to cancel the order rather than re-arrange delivery (in accordance with clause 11), we will provide you with a full refund.
  • 14.2    We are only responsible for losses that are a natural, foreseeable consequence of our breach of these terms and conditions.  We do not accept liability if we are prevented or delayed from complying with our obligations set out in these terms and conditions by anything you (or anyone acting with your express or implied authority) does or fails to do, or is due to events which are beyond our reasonable control.
  • 14.3    Furthermore, we do not accept liability for any losses related to any business of yours including but not limited to: lost data, lost profits, lost revenues or business interruption.
  • 14.4    You must observe and comply with all applicable regulations and legislation, including obtaining all necessary customs, import or other permits to purchase goods from our site.  The importation or exportation of certain of our goods to you may be prohibited by certain national laws.  We make no representation and accept no liability in respect of the export or import of the goods you purchase.
  • 14.5    Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in these terms and conditions is intended to limit any rights you might have as a consumer under applicable local law or other statutory rights that may not be excluded nor in any way to exclude or limit our liability to you for any death or personal injury resulting from our negligence.   You have certain rights as a consumer including legal rights (e.g. under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (as amended)) relating to faulty and/or misdescribed goods.

The New DEva 1000W HPS DE 400V integrated light

revolution blogWhat have this aeroplane and this Deva 1000W DE 400V integrated light got in common?

Answer: they’re both designed/built by electronics wizard and quality control obsessive Greg Richter aka Revolution Micro Electronics.

(And you could safely fly your family in both, if they both had wings).

 Let’s talk Quality

Now just to provide some perspective of how serious Greg and Revolution Micro Electronics is about producing reliable controls, let us tell you that Greg comes from the Aerospace Industry and has contributed to the US’s FAA’s (Federal Aviation Administration) programs. The (FAA) regulate all aspects of American civil aviation. If you are an American flier, you’ve studied Greg Richter’s work. Coming from aerospace and military grade levels of quality control, Greg knows that reliability is not a luxury–it is a MUST.

revolution blog 03Unlike many other East Asian ballast assembly lines, the factory Greg works with is in Thailand is ISO certified, and manufactures many high specification product that conform to the American UL standards (Underwriters Laboratories). UL is a very strict safety standard in US, similar to CE marking in Europe. As a matter of fact, UL inspects his factory four times a year. They exceed Automotive Certification standards, even to US Military specification if they need to. Besides having the right equipment and handling processes, it means that their training and testing standards are exceptional.  The factory’s assembly lines are not only trained to just put these units together, they are also trained to test and repair them so as they understand them inside out. This is how Greg works as standard.

The factory is climate controlled both in production and parts storage. This is to protect against ESD (static) damage and soldering problems associated with humidity-sensitive parts like OLED displays. They even use X-ray inspection to verify the boards are 100% before starting software development. The human eye can’t see underneath things, but his X-ray and computer-vision inspection stations can spot the most minor imperfection. On average, one of their circuit boards is inspected four times by machines and six times by technicians. They don’t want to guess, they want to KNOW!

All Revolution products are completely designed and engineered in-house from the ground-up; no copies or clones! With over 100,000 electronic products delivered, we are proud of our perfect record of zero customer returns in 2014, 2015 and zero so far in 2016 as well. In short, they are obsessive about quality!

Light Features

  1. Built to last for 36 years of continuous use! It has six capacitors (not two like other leading brands), larger transistors and inductors, so it can cope with much higher loads. Avionic grade!
  2. It is the first and only "silent" square wave ballast to drive 1000W 400V DE lamps. DC polarity square wave design gives this unit the lowest Electronic Magnetic Interference (EMI) output on record. It’s similar to those found with a Hi-Fi/iPad and other similar small devices. AM radio runs at around 500 kHz, much lower than FM which is in the order of MHz. The DEva runs at 150Hz which is 1000 times lower than most electronic ballasts on the market, and is out of radio range. EMC testing laboratories can hardly tell if the light is on or off. Check out this link:
  3. When powering on the unit, the start-up surge is extremely low. Normally, there is an inrush current to the capacitors. How does the Devo work differently?  The start-up circuits are computer controlled, so the start-up is done in a controlled sequence. Other leading brands have a 10 year old electronic ballast design, using old chips that are less efficient. This unit has all new chipsets and design.  No design element of the unit and the design of the components are over two years old, giving this unit unparalleled performance.
  4. The unit has 1.5% better power factor than any other 1000W unit, down to its newer chips and other components on board
  5. Being a highly efficient low frequency square wave ballast, the plasma in the arc tube maintains a very steady and constant temperature. This results in better colour rendering and lamp life.
  6. Cool running. The heat sync is bigger than any other DE unit with longer fins for better heat dissipation. It is computer designed and is much more efficient than anything else on the market. This lower internal heat level leads to more efficiency as the unit has less heat to deal with. As with all electronics and longevity, heat is your enemy.
  7. 3 years warranty
  8. Ushio Pro Plus lamp, 2100 µmol, same as the legendary 1000W DE Philips 2100 µmol Greenpower lamp.

Controller features

  1. Timed Control of up to 512 DEva 1000W lights over two zones (256 lights per zone).
  2. No start up surges
  3. Automatic sunrise/sunrise.
  4. Built in clock and battery backed up.
  5. Automatic dimming via temperature control.
  6. Emergency temperature cut off setting. (Lights will go off when a critical temperature is reached.)
  7. 3 auxiliary outputs per zone. “On”, control auxiliary equipment when lights are on, “Off”, control auxiliary equipment when lights are off and “Temp” to control auxiliary equipment when a pre-configured temperature is reached.
  8. 2 waterproof temperature probes, one for each zone.
  9. Lights can run up to 300m (1000 feet) from the controller via common RJ11 telephone cables.
