New Far Red DIY-M-Kits and sets

After our blog post about the initiation of sleep, we now present the appropriate Far Red DIY-M-Kits and sets, which work in the range of 720-740nm.

The kit is available as a standalone version and can be combined and used with any lighting. In addition, the Far Red kit can be mounted on the previous DIY-M-KITs.

Here are some examples:

LED measuring day at Bloomtech, Göttingen area

In September we launched our first LED measuring day in Bovenden (Germany, close to Göttingen). We met with Bloomtech's Thomas to run the first part of our measurement series. We set up a tent to provide a measurement area of 1m2 and tested various LED lights by different manufacturers.

The measuring marathon ended up being a great day of work and fun. Thomas provided bratwurst and beer (thanks again for that!) and we talked shop about everything LED.

Measurement Setup

The setup is comparatively simple. We provided 1m2 of measuring space and installed 81 metering points of which we ended up using 25. They are highlighted by the big black dots.

The second tool was a simple rod on which we marked our three measuring heights, making it easy to adjust the lights for our tests.

Finally, the last and most important tool we used was an Apogee Full Spectrum Quantumsensor, a sensor with a spectral range of 389 to 692 nm. To ensure that all lights reached their respective working temperatures before the tests we switched them to full power 15 minutes prior to the actual tests.

LED Measuring Day - Results

The idea behind the tests was to compare the different lights in real life situations and so the heights in which we installed the respective lights was dependent on the specifications of each single light. We used heights of either 30cm, 60cm or 90cm. The goal was to compare illumination and PPFD data if the lights are used either as you would find them in shops or in use by regular customers. The collected data was transferred to an excel-sheet and is listed below.

More Meanwell Power and hard as steel brackets for your LED!

As of now we're packing more MeanWell power and offer new stainless steel brackets for your LED! We've once again extended our product list and we'd like to show you the new products that made it into our shop. But wait, there's more - if you're missing something you think would complement our product range please let us know! If it fits our general product range we're happy to have you participate in creating an even better selection of available products.

To the new products!

Exquisite & hard as steel - our new DIY-M-KIT brackets

Now we're back with new and improved brackets made from stainless steel! Also, to improve on setting up our kits in general we've enlarged the bracket's eyelets so that it's easier to mount the Prohanger units. As of now all our DIY-M-KITs are being shipped with the new brackets![/vc_column_text][vc_column_text letter_spacing=""]

The last letter indicates the dimmable editions.

Start of the project LED Grow Light

Hello and welcome to the start of the project LED Grow Light! Here you can now read about our first milestones for the development of an LED Grow Light. Have lots of fun with it!

For us it is finally happening, building a web presence, trade fair visits, development of the first prototype, shop preparation, social media development and expansion, cost accounting, bookkeeping, production, certifications ... as you can see, we have many things to do!

We have a lot of ideas, a good reason for our project and a lot of energy to tackle our LED Grow Light project. Who we are and why we do that, you can find out here on our blog. We will try to take you through all the important steps on the way to our LED Grow Light. So that you are finally able to build your own LED Grow Light. Be curious what else is coming!

Follow our progress until then and be there when we take essential steps, fail, record success and share it with you.

Let's change the use of light together and get more out of Grow Light than previously possible!
