New "High Light" LED boards in production

Following on from this thread: viewtopic.php?f=40&t=12075" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Yep, more spam Munchy :toker1:

As we sold out of the first run of Aussie-made High Light LED boards, we decided to make another production run. That run has sold pretty well and so the next logical step was to make a business venture out of it.

So we now have a new company – Grow Lights Australia – and a new website: http://www.growlightsaustralia.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

The first pic is a room full of High Lights in Australia that produces 10-12lb every two months with 3200W of LED

The second photo was part of a side-by-side grow in Oregon that produced over 1200g in a 4x4. There were four tents in total, including a control tent, interestingly all three test tents yielded about the same. The main difference was the High Lights did it in a week less time (because they have a better Red:Far Red ratio), and with fewer watts (670W vs up to 730W) than the others.

Perhaps the most interesting thing to come out of the test were the cannabinoid and terpene test results. The High Lights produced very similar figures to the other tents . . . except the other tents had supplmental UVB and UVA, and the High Lights had none – they have near-UV/UVA LEDs already built into them.

Here are the results. The bold figures are the Quantum Boards (QB) used along with the added supplements. If you guys know anything about LEDs, you'll know Quantum Boards are the standard. Well, not any more.


6 x QB96 Elite, 1 x 28 diode FR bar, 2 x 4’ T5 30% UVA & 6% UVB
Total THC: 19.8%
Total CBD: 0.7%
Total Terpenes: 4.7%


8 x QB288, 4 x QB35, 1 x 28 diode FR bar, 2 x 4’ T5 30% UVA & 6% UVB
Total THC: 18.7%
Total CBD: 0.63%
Total Terpenes: 5.0%


8 x High Light UV
Total THC: 19.1%
Total CBD: 0.64%
Total Terpenes: 4.8%


Control – 3'x3' room with 4 x QB96, 4 x rapidled FR pucks, NO UV
Total THC: 16.6%
Total CBD: 0.52%
Total Terpenes: 3.9%

Bottom line is, these things work and you guys got to see them first :tup:

Well I mean fuck, it's not like I was going to waste my time starting a new Planet Ganja or anything :gadday:

Sure can. You can wire them in series or parallel. The limiting factor will be the drivers, as these are 225W panels and the biggest drivers we recommend with them are 600W.

I've even got a simulator here that can show you the light spread for any given grow room. Here are four panels (two per double heatsink) with each pair connected to a 320W driver (340W at the boards, 360W at the wall) at 45cm hang height and 80% reflective walls in a 4'x4' tent. The measurements are in PPFD (Photonsynthetic Photon Flux Denisty):

There is. You can use the discount code "FORUM" for a 10% discount – which we offer to all forum members

Also, all prices displayed include 10% Goods and Services Tax, but if you live outside Australia, you don't pay tax. 10% will come off the price as soon as you enter a shipping address outside Australia.

Finally, if you order a certain number of products, there are further 5-10% discounts.

So there's up to 30% off right there :wink:

Aw, shucks guys :toker1:

I'm actually doing you a favour – LOL! – because LEDs are the next big thing in growing, and I posted all the info on this forum before I posted it anywhere else!

You're welcome :fubird:

But seriously, if you want to know anything about LEDs – and not just mine, but any LEDs – ask away and I'll try to answer. I'm getting pretty good at this stuff now.

Munchy, has that stash of vintage porn I sent you to look the other way arrived yet? :winky:
