Here's how I mounted mine:


Mars Hydro TSW/TSL-2000 Mounted with Timer

Note that the drivers are spaced away from the board using 3 X 1/4" washers stacked at each screw.

Don't use a pre-made extension cable longer than 10' (3 meters). The drivers put out between five and six amps each. If you need a longer extension, build your own. The cable ends Mars Hydro uses are not what I listed in the image. They are 5.5X2.5mm, or DC-5525 connectors.

Before taking the drivers off of the light, verify that the ends of the extension cable fit. Some, like the ones I got, don't.

If you intend to add a timer to your board, take note of the cable connections in the 'T' connector. Make absolutely certain you make the connections correctly.

With that out of the way, you'll probably want 3' (one meter) or more above the light so that you can raise or lower it. You need that into consideration when deciding on the extension cable length you need.

Good luck with it. :nervous-guy:

I’m with y’all off with my roof lol boy they just keep growing not missing a hiccup was thinking lowering nutes but that will hurt the bud growth just want them to settle down lol
Trim the top of each main bud . not a lot but enough to hit new growth about 20mm. They will change from long thin to short and stocky buds. Bud trimming is a good wat to stop colas adding height and increasing girth.. Next step may have to be some supercropping. good squash and a 90° bend. repair as they grow. I always seem to end up doing a few mid flower to manage the canopy. never ventured never gained mate. could always try 1 main tip trimming to see that play out. can make nice fatty buds. Just a few thought in height concerns
