One driver two leads HLG 600h 54B
Awsom thanks for putting up with all my question!
no problem happy to help
With that driver you are supposed to wire in parallel I don't believe you can have two parallel strings like how you have it wired now. None of the boards should be wired together. Each board should get a lead from the positive and negative of the driver. You need 8 pieces of wire, two leads for each board one negative and the other positive.
That is correct wiring. Each set of boards should be in a separate lead from driver.
Any updates on enhanced spectrum QB shown on website with projected July availability ?
What boards and color temps will be available ?
Thank you HLG!
How much heat do the QB generate?
If a 120-1400 pulls 180 at the wall but also my 185-1400 pulls 185 from the wall. Which would be best to run 4 boards surrounded by cobs? I have both drivers so may be able to swap around if one is better than the other?
Thank you! I'll post my review soon! I turned it on in the middle of my living room and it lite up my whole apartment! This thing is super bright!
Welcome to the Quantum Qlub!!
185 is a bit more efficient and will run cooler as you won't be utilizing the entire driver (longer life from cooler operation) not that it matters meanwells are solid.
All lighting generates the same heat per watt. Is how much light can I get for what wattage that matters. More efficient lights such as QBs are from 2.3-3.0 umol/j will require less wattage to achieve the desired light level..... Thus less heat....
@Stephenj37826 would it be worth running 4 boards at 42w each on the 185 do you think? Would it be worth it if running between 9 cxb 3590s at 30w each? Or just run 2 at a higher wattage for when I crank up the cxbs?
I have all this light but can't decide how best to utilise it so I don't waste it
Thanks for the reply I have no doubt with meanwells I won't use others
I run 2 boards with a 185, does very well at 12inches above canopy in a 3x3.
That's what I do now with my cobs around it but have 2 doing nothing so thinking I could add them for more efficency
Buy another tent instead
Would love to but only allowed the one and don't really have anymore spare space outside of my 4x4 tent
I'm guessing 2 qbs will be fine. The added efficiency isn't that great vs cost imho. Butttt if you are running your come that duct it may be the 2.0+ gpw people are hoping for lol.
