Not exactly sure what yer looking for
Meanwells do, well, what yers do

A watt meter you plug the light into will tell yer draw and specific % of power, if u don't already have one

A Quantum Par meter will tell you the PAR values yer getting at any area below the lights

I have one, great to see where the sweet spot is as well as how good they are 12" off to the side. I have a Hydrofarm one, like $120. Great tool to have with the QBs for sure

i would like to get a BIG driver with as much voltage and current control is i can get min to max at least for testing. i can see making more of this stuff to improve my gardens and maybe even help others with cost effective solutions to their situations.
i have some time on my hands and i like to keep busy.

Good morning all

i'm seeing 10k lux at canopy. is this good?
Hey there Clrwatrtom, 10k lux is where my girls were in first week if bloom, i raised that by 5-10 k per week till i get to 60k ish (where im at now) in final week or so.
Any higher and youll start to see bleaching (will try n max it at about 70k)

just watered the af's. they shared another 1/2 gal., with pk getting 21oz. and thw ww getting 42 oz, The pp's just got a 1/2 gal, each still no major runoff on any of them. pk has the wettest bottom, but she is building some pretty buds. Very happy in the garden today. :woohoo:
