PPFD Maps

So I know a few of you have been waiting a while for these, apologies about that.

 

Here are the PPFD maps, they were done at heights of 30cm, 45cm and 60cm and then at power levels of 80W, 160W and 240W.

We have done this variation to assist those who are using our lights to try and optimize their grow and efficiency, allow you to adjust the height and power to suit your grow and the stage of growth your plants are in.

We have included a PPFD guideline to further assist as we understand just having the figures on the map is useless if you do not know what range to aim for.

The guide is rough and specifically for cannabis, however keep in mind there can be variations between strains.

 

There are some other changes which have been made and we will be posting about them soon 🙂 

 

 

30CM

Thanks for sharing these.
We’re the tests done with reflective “walls” around the perimeter edges? (Emulating a typical grow tent)

Hi Dookie,

 

Yes it was - setup was done to try and simulate a tent of 1.2m x 1.2m

Excuse my questions, I ask to understand and not be funny.

Is it normal that we see so much fall off on the edges, when you are in a tent? 

What lights are these, would you please send me pictures or post here, or normal QB?

Ta

They look like normal Quantum Boards, it would still taper off on the edge that is furthest away from the light.

The sidewalls of a tent make a difference and help reflect some light back, so it does boost it slightly. We use panda film to simulate the sides of a tent - so the readings may change slightly depending on the material the inside of your tent is made from.

 

Below is what one of our lights looks like underneath:
