Been 1,5 year now since I've seen a living plant, 

 

Did got some spare time to hobby and diy with some leds

 

Made a frame out of rails for the sinks, bought a Bleu tooth controller and a relais to dim to off

 

Mounted it all on a panel with the driver underneath

large.IMG_20190928_172922.jpg.da048ed9633218bb124b157e59e227e5.jpgI used the chilled logic pucks, 

Made 1x "veg light" with 2 of the royal blue versions of the pucks ( 3000k/4000k & 450nm) 240w 2100A with a more Bleu spectrum

And 2x "generative/bloom lights"  with 3 deep red versions of the pucks (3000k/4000k & 660nm) 240w 1750A with a more red spectrum

To dimm the old style meanwell drivers (1-10v) to off  I added a relay that switches off  at 1v 

Made a wiring harness in series with a protective sleeve and shrink tube.. 

Used some stand off spacers to mount the aluminum panel on the frame (makers beam) 

The Bleu tooth Controller aux is powered by a 12v 300ma driver 

Its a mesh network that allows for timers, schedule, dimming and light recipes 

Lights can be grouped into a network and Cotrolled all at once or multiple groups

Very clean and professional build. I'm envious. I have four V3 Blue Chilled logic pucks on a MeanWell HLG-480H C2100. I use it in flower, which is fine. I'm very impressed with your setup. What kind of settings are you setting it up to do? Sunrise/sunsets? Very cool!

thanks allot my friend, was aiming for a build to be proud of. and i am

 

it mainly eliminates the need for a analog timer,

 

the 2 `flowering lights` are grouped together,  so they dim-shut off at the same time..

or in a flip/flop set up ( so the second light switches on at the moment the other one switches off.. ) for a 2 tent set-up
 

in theory the sun rise/set is possible, but not a standart option

( but for example: i could dim 1% every minute for 100 minutes untill shut off to simulate a sunrset )

 

,   i personaly think it wont have to be as smooth,  a 50% dim at once 45min before lights out will do just af fine to lower the humidity peak after lights go outn(if there is any)

same for sun rise.. a 25% increase every 15 minutes will be suffient for the plant to "wake up" and start transpiration with out suddenly overheating the plant or the room tamprature

 

but as far as i know, those are HPS related problems ( radiation heat and sudden heat from those hot bulps that could cause for problems if youre room heats up faster than youre plant.. and you get condens in the buds)

or the sudden drop in temprature that will increase Relative humidity from the sudden wtich off of the bulps..

 

so i really doubt if sunrise&sunset is as importent with led as if with hps, simply because youre not as dependend  on the lamp as a heat source any more

hello Skunk:)

with leds you dont need it at all... and dualspectrum dimming also was not efficiant because when you dimmed them you lost the warm colors... it is good to wake up but a big loss if u want to put the girls to bed hahha

oh ...with leds you will get rot faster because of the terrific amount of leaves... what you never got under HPS

(it is only true for most EU elit clones because they were selected under HPS)

Karma up, and happy growing!!

Hey hey Hidro!

They make some led where everything is programmable pretty much.

The LED light, i see lights as tools, has certainly increased its value in a grow room than of years past.  I still do not like diminishing returns over time with LED compared to other lighting options with a bulb that only needs replaced compared to the light itself but that is for longevity aspects.

As for me, it is always about the environment and whatever light or type of lights and/or season for the lights you use, that is the correct light. 

 

Karma Up!

@hidronesia

 

@hidronesia for now I don't fiddle around with spectrum recepies,  just led with some extra red for flower 

 

Future builds will include multiple channel dimming, but only when there is more info and experience from other growers online.. so I don't have to expiriment,

(to many possibilities with color ratios and you can't really measure effects or results if you chance it to often)

also afraid that when I play with the culours all day it might trigger hermie /hermafrodite /innnersextraits faster

 

Led is different, as far as I've seen and heard you need a slightly different climate, or should I say the plants depends more on climate by the lack of radiation heat from the lamps, and maybe its also like you say, maybe the different spectrum in light bring s out different phenotipycal expressions and it sounds logical, selecting a plant under hps looks different than underneath the led lights.. 

The intensity of the led can be a struggle, as the hight and space between lamp and plant matters more.. I'm going to buy a par meter to be sure they don't get to little or to much.. 

Also less penetration but more even spread makes it a different approach, no sea of green but more suitable for scrogg-net 

 

@Crimson Fart thans allot buddy, wish you the best of luck. 

Hope to set up tents before the end of the month,

more red will fasten up resin making and  for this you will get for free sooner  the bud rot if you cant control climate... hard to say which is the best ratio ( i think strain .. pheno dependent)... but i cant mix the colors on my bars so I paln to quit mapito.. because under led at the first weeks they use much less water... but if I not watering every 3 rd day .. ph is climbing up!

do you have the non canna smelling clone yet?

happy growing

@hidronesia

HD style flood and drain is really a hps thing,  with led I see allot of small pots with coco or top feed or rockwool blocks, 

I will do just soil, sannie style 

And maybe 1 pot with coco, still got some calnit/peters universol to expiriment a little with hydro.. 

My only experience In Hydro is with a banana tree, she is in coco.. I topfeed/drain to waste.. Good coco don't get waterlogged and I use allot of volume of water compared to the pot size.. .. Basically I give water from the top until the drain down the bottom is the same ph&ec as the values that I put in,  I waste allot of water but the ph and ec is always right on the money.. And the salt fertilizer is so cheap I don't mind to waste a bit more.. 

So my best guess is Small pots of coco for led, and allot of water, drain to waste..  

 

You still talk about the S. A. D s1 from sweet seeds.. Use to have a lemonaide smelling pheotype that was gifted to me from Omni seeds, he selected from fem seeds, Thats more  3 years ago.. I'm so Sorry to say I don't have any plant anymore.. 

I can look up, I got some seeds he made also with that cut. (S. A. D. s1 X mango widdow)  * mango widdow = mango haze x white widdow)  

But don't know how much of them I got and if I can miss any..

Tats true hidro!  And these days tere are allot of good flavors of weed around, UNITED STATES brought some expensive, but some times great new strains..  It's just tricky because some live Up to the name and others are just a marketing not worthy cross by using a hyped named stain. 

Easy to go broke by going for 250dollar seeds 

I've grown many different crosses of outdoor plants and seen allot of different genetic expressions, and seen allot of flavors already, 

The human brain works accociative,  and will always compare a smell to some thing they all ready know to label it, 

Orange, grape, lemon, lime, green thea, vennel, lavender, gasoline, burned rubber, skunks, pine, papaya, peach, cherry, mango, strawberry, pineapple, Blueberry, sour cream, chocolate, vanilla, vennel/a

nice, etc

(those flavors of cannabis where always around, but now more readily available) 

There is no coincidence that we find all these crazy flavors,  it could be found in more species than just cannabis.. 

Take a look at the mint plant or hops, all the same flavors I mentioned could be found in them to,  great times we live in now, 

And it is about God damn time, as we live in 2020!  That all great flavors that I mentioned above are finally here to smoke for everyone who loves a great smoke. 

I hope I will end up with 5/6 flavors of plants:

Redfruit(cherry, raspberry, strawberry) 

Yellow-citrus fruit(lemon/lime/orangem/manderin) 

Orange - tropical fruit(peach/mango/papaya) 

Gas(Chem/haze/og/diesel ) 

Purple fruit( grape/blueberry/lavender) 

 

Than I Will be a happy man, 

I don't want much, just those 4/5 flavors in my mom cabinet in the next upcoming 2 years. 

Sounda Like a goal that is doable with all the strains floating around these days!
