LED lighting
    #744210 - 08/17/14 03:26 PM (3 years, 9 months ago)

I have some LED lights. Made for marine use. I was thinking about doing my medical grow with them. Just bouncing it off some more experienced people to see if they would work. I looked at the average LED parameters. Mine looked just a spec above that.

I can adjust and tweak all these different colors as well.

    White: 8 Cree XT-E Cool White (5w each)
    Red: 4 Osram Oslon SSL Hyper Red, 660nm (3w each)
    Yellow: 2 Osram Oslon SSL Yellow, 590nm (3w each)
    Green: 4 Cree XP-E Green, 520nm (3w each)
    Blue: 8 Cree XP-E Blue, 468nm (3w each)
    Royal Blue: 8 Cree XT-E Royal Blue, 442nm (5w each)
    Indigo: 4 SemiLEDs UV, 415nm (2.5w each)
    Ultraviolet: 4 SemiLEDs UV, 405nm (2.5w each)

150watt total power.

I want something comparable to a 1000W in a LED.

Will it work?

I don't think you'll get 1000w worth of light out of 150w of LED, but you can get a small area with a really good amount of light, that might rival the quality, but not the quantity.

Those look like they could work, but I'm no expert on the actual diodes used. If you know how to wire and mount them to keep them cool then you could have a really good light.  When you say marine use, I'm thinking that they would use top/upper bin diodes so as no to have any problems out at sea, which would be very beneficial.

That's a very intelligent blend of diodes. You're appropriately emphasizing the blue and UV part of the spectrum, which dominates the chlorophyll absorption spectra...

Of course, you'll never know how it works until you try...
