The Photon Modular LED Unit is a high quality lighting fixture that lets the user construct a light fixture to the size and shape they want. You can use a single unit on its own in a small tent, over a mother plant maybe, or attach up to 30 together in any configuration – all running from a single plug socket. As this is a modular system, you simply buy what you need; a five unit set up for example would require 5 LED units, 1 power cable and probably a 2m extension lead. The units attach to each other along one of the 6 sides using the grub screws and Allen key that comes in the box.
The Photon Modular LED units are one of the most powerful grow light fixtures available, with an output of up to 1467 umol/s/m2 at 0.75 meters and a PPF of 872. Light intensity is higher on the leaf surface, leading to a boost in photosynthesis and sugar production. There has been years of research into the Photon LED light spectrum and the result is very close to that of natural sunlight. Recent research suggests plants do use some green light, stimulating photosynthesis at a deep level. The extra intensity also helps the light penetrate the plant canopy to reach the lower leaves. Each unit consumes just 65w and the integrated driver has a class leading 94% energy conversion efficiency.
Photon LED Units are IP65 rated, meaning they are totally protected from dust ingress and can stand low pressure water spray from any direction. Great peace of mind if you get an bit over zealous with watering (or humidity is high!). The Photon LEDs are run at 45% their maximum output to ensure longevity and should last 50,000+ hours (about 11 years!). Although they are running at less than half of their maximum strength, each unit has 144x 1w LEDs to really drive those huge output numbers.
One of the best features of this system is that you don’t have to invest everything up front. You can buy a few, try it out and then build on the system again and again until you have the size and shape light you want. Below is a few ideas for configurations, with footprint coverage etc.
