    COB question

    Stick with CREE, Luminus and Citizen - I would honestly check out quantum boards if you have the space

    DIY Grow Cabinet & LED

    Yea I could have finished this a week after starting this thread, but it was actually a lot of work so I just kind of did a few things here and there. And to keep the doors shut nice and tight (one of my biggest challenges), I had to add "draw latches" two on each door, one at the top one at the...

    DIY Grow Cabinet & LED

    All done. Just need to get some gardening stuff. When lights are at full power and exhaust fan is on, the internal temperature only reaches about 26-27 degrees Celsius, the lights will only be used at half power and lower throughout the grow. When all doors are closed the fan is audible but not...

    In the market for full spectrum LEDs or CMH

    Which wattmeter did you use? I thought those ones were for AC applications. Im looking for something similar to measure actual draw of 2 LED drivers.

    DIY Grow Cabinet & LED

    Just wanted to create a thread for my DIY LED and grow cabinet in case someone wanted to replicate the setup or wanted some sort of inspiration. I never thought of growing marijuana until legalization. I figured it would be pretty cool to not have to buy marijuana anymore and to have high...

    Planned DIY LED build

    Any plans in adding in some veg focused lighting? These look like they would go nicely with your project.

    COBs burned out

    No I think you're right. Without more cobs in series, 143V @1400mA is going straight to the COB @ 200W. I didn't think about power when i just wanted to test a single COB. I'm kind of blazed to be honest *facepalm

    COBs burned out

    I just touched them against the cob where they were meant to go. The DIM wires from the driver are taped off and not connected to anything.

    COBs burned out

    Why did my COBs pop with a constant current driver?

    COBs burned out

    So I got a few Cree 3070s and an HLG-185H-C1400B driver, I went to test out my cobs and 2 of them popped. I have no idea why. I tested them individually, and as far as I understand, voltage doesn't matter as long as its Vf or exceeds Vf... no idea why. It's a constant 1400mA output. Just wasted...

    1.6' x2.5' grow space: Need lighting tips!

    I am going the DIY route because I have a pretty good knowledge with analog components and small electronics - ALSO going the DIY route because I can add/remove COBs with ease, change the layout to what ever I want and I can ensure that high quality components are being used for the lowest price.

    1.6' x2.5' grow space: Need lighting tips!

    I got a potentiometer for dimming, so I guess my whole worry of having too much light was never real hahahaha, totally forgot about the dimming part. With the space i'm working with I believe I might have an uneven spread with the 2x2 COB layout unless it's more rectangular, but at that point...

    1.6' x2.5' grow space: Need lighting tips!

    I am currently working on a discreet grow build. I am using a wardrobe and have 1.6'x2.5' of grow space. I looked into DIY LED lighting (loved the idea) and got myself; - x1 185H-C1400B driver + 100k pot - x4 CXB3070 CREE 3000K 80CRI (I know, i should have gotten the 90 CRI - next build!) COB -...
