Veg. Array

Sorry for double post. I could not add more then 5 pics here.
These were just cree 4300k diodes and these draw about 300ish watts and you can see it pretty much covers a 4x8 table.
I used for years and not one problem with it. I just moved to Gavitas. My Gavita set 250 watts 4'.5" above the table blows away the Led's I built.
But she did work for sure... For what it was...

Thanks for sharing that T.p. That is badass man. Cree COBs is where it's at these days. But that is awesome.

Peace, Roast.

Good question! Depending on your dimming capabilities, and dependig what stage your in, makes big differences. Seedlings i keep about 2' away with about 30% of max. Veg i go about 1' away at 50%. Flowering i go progressively more power till i reach max power. Always with about 1' clearance. Really it depends on how much juice you have and how much space your blasting. Always make sure your not bleaching. You'll know if it's too much, but the damage will be done. These COBs are powerful if driven well. If i had a par meter of some kind i could give better recommendations, but what i do is working. Once i get build 2 done I'll have to figure it out all over again lol. Hope this helps.

Peace, Roast.

just for the sake of exchanging info.
i've tried to do a grow keeping them at a fixed distance, it's my current grow.
but i've a little box too, just 140cm height.
too early to say what i'll harvest, but so far i've never seen a compact bush like the one i've right now.

I bought a dimmable driver but it didn't come with a dim switch. I think it's DALI capability? What dimmer do you use? Thank you so much for sharing everyone!

Sharing is what its all about my friends. I buy mean well drivers in the B version and use a 100k pot to do the dimming. I got 5 100k pots for $5 on Amazon Prime. Simply solder 2 leads from the dim out of the driver to the pot. It lets you dim in a range of 10%-100% of current. I'll take a closeup of the build I'm working on for you.

Peace, Roast.

That's badass jikko! Defiantly keep us posted on how your current grow shapes up.
