Worrying about my lighting. I use two SZHLUX PT6000 LED Grow Lights in my room – with five to six plants under each. The lights are full spectrum with four settings (of dimming). But there is no real setting for veg and/or bloom.
Am I good or should I consider adding/changing. I’m stink at the whole understanding-lights thing.
LED technology Samsung diodes, high Energy Efficiency with 2.9 Umol/J, delivers powerful light output and uniform canopy penetration to resulting maximum higher yields. Actual power is 600W with 1728 LEDS
Ah yeah, put together here with Chinese parts. I seem to be doing good with these lights and don’t want to spend money – unless there is great benefit. At 20 in above canopy on brightest setting my PAR readings are about 900 - 1000 – and they put out a decent footprint.
I am retired from the electronics industry. This is a trick that a lot of manufacturers use - they manufacture products overseas, transfer the assembled hardware to the US, then stick a data plate on the product in the US so they can claim it was made in the US. We had a manufacturer from Brasil as a customer. They would build products in Brasil and transfer their products to Florida for installation of the data plate. They do this so the DoD would see them as a more favorable supplier.
Might be wrong, But HLG only company in the US that makes there light here in the states. They bought the rights and equipment to make Samsung 301 dios and the rest they do. I read that somewhere but don’t remember where
They’re just good lights. Mine have been running non stop for 4 years straight. You should be fine with what you have. I’m sure they’re full spectrum as they claim. Highly doubt the 2.9 umols/joule efficiency is accurate though.
Since you already have them, see how they do. If you’re unsatisfied then you can upgrade then. No need to give up on them if you’re not having an issue with them
