Couldnt resist to unpack everything ;) Got some early Christmas presents today :high-five::yahoo::yahoo:

Just putted the stripes lose on the holder/cooler - they will be attached by some 3M thermal pads. I will them arrange like in the first picture - attach everything with the 20x20mm Profiles, each 33cm long. So the hole lamp has a dimension of 50x33cm - that should light up my little tent very well :D

Also got the MeanWell HLG 320H-20A, so I will tinker this together next week! :drool:

Stripes look very good and the holder/cooler are bigger and heavier as I thought :)

Oh I see now... they didn't put molex connectors on the strips. That you should point out to them in the future! I thought it was some fiddle to solder on the 6040 cobs I remember. Do they preheat the boards when soldering in a factory? It's quite large piece of aluminum that dissipate the heat from a solder iron quick...

Wago is fine on the driver!

With the 6040 I had no issue, because they are so cheap .... :D no seriously - I will solder them well, but it's a bit nerve racking ;)

Yeah, sure they will pre heat them, otherwise the solder wont be fine. I dont think it's different...

Which wires are u using?

Ok. I don't doubt you will do a perfect job on them with that!

I don't know I you have the same standard on classification on wires. Its called SKX 0,75mm2, others may call it ordinary lamp wire. :)

I couldnt wait and took that little bit time I had today to tinker it together - I'm satisfied with that :)

Drilled some holes in the 20x20mm Profile and attached the LED holder/cooler with 3x M5 screws each. Hole construction is about 3kg ^^

Btw, the Lady's started to smell, this morning it was a very nice smell in my bedroom :D Time to add the carbon filter ;)

Hard to tell were you are at now but 40-50cm over canopy is perfect I think. You want them to stretch a little. But if it's fiddly to raise that light wait until you built the other. :thumb:
