THE TECH SPECS
Consuming only 65W per unit means Photon LED™ far outpaces competitors. With our recommended 7-way configuration, you’ll still only be drawing 455W from the mains. When compared to 600W High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps, that’s almost 30% difference; saving you on the cost of electricity.
You can customise your Photon LED™ system to have an immense 30 units, that’s up to 4 x 7-way configurations, all running from one domestic mains socket without any relays or contactors required. With extension leads, don’t worry about having to connect them all into one behemoth of a light, you can space them out and fill your whole grow room.
Photon LED™ was designed to fulfil the needs of any grow, whether it’s a 0.16 m2 tent, a 10,000 m2 facility, an oddly shaped room or a greenhouse, we have you covered. Bearing the plethora of settings, you could find yourself growing in during the design phase, led directly to the product you see today. A solid, competitive, easy to use product that is suitable for both hobbyists and commercial ventures.
PHOTON LED OUT BACK
Using full spectrum LED’s gives Photon LED™ an advantage over many other competitors using LED grow lights. We’re sure you’ve heard ‘But full spectrum is unnecessary, plants don’t absorb green light’ time and time again. Whilst this was believed to be true for a many number of years, recent discoveries indicate that plants do in fact utilise green light, stimulating chloroplasts at a deeper level than that of the rest of the spectrum. Green light also offers greater canopy penetration. As further is discovered with regards to this, we only expect it to make full spectrum lights more and more common place in the horticultural industry. Using full spectrum LED’s also means that there’s no need to swap bulbs out as you move through your grow cycle, from propagation to vegetation to bloom, Photon LED™ does it all. LED’s also benefit from low heat output, this is radical in a number of ways, none more so than the difference it makes in your grow area. This lower heat output means lower temperatures and therefore less onus assigned to aspects of your grow such as intake, outtake as well as carbon filters. All of these can be downsized to match the lower temperatures now generated during your grow cycle. This gives way to lower costs on these items.
It’s a well-known fact that the life span pf LED’s far outstrip HID bulbs, but when the data is broken down it’s a rather sobering read. Whilst HPS and CDM bulbs state a life expectancy of around 24,000 hours or 5.5 years, most manufacturers advise changing your bulbs every 12 – 18 months, however. Couple this with the fragile nature of such bulbs, and you may find yourself spending lots of time and money getting new ones. Photon LED™ on the other hand has a huge 50,000 hours or 11 years life expectancy. To this end, we run each LED at 45% of their maximum capacity, giving you peace of mind that your Photon LED™ will last. Whilst LED's heat output is almost negligible in terms of your grow rooms temperature, they do get hot enough to affect their own functionality. With this in mind, the research and development team have integrated a heat escape valve to aid in the removal of heat between the LED's and the lens-plate, so as to avoid any expansion and thus impacting the performance of your Photon LED™ system.
Photon LED™'s integrated driver, with a class leading 94% energy conversion efficiency, means it’s a straight forward set up and there’s no scrabbling around getting extras such as ballasts and reflectors. It also means that the product has less detachable parts, arguably the most likely way for any issues or accidents to occur with your light system. Once you’ve got it home and it’s out of the box its ready to go, just hang it up, connect the cables, switch it on and get growing.
