Thanks for the answers
So either the Samsungs or the QB96 seem to be the way to go then.
I am in the UK so not sure if HLG deliver to here and they are a bit out of my budget tbh
I already have a Veg light using Samsung F3 strips with a HLG-150H-54B
The ledgardener builds are over 3 years...
What are the go to led strips these days? Are the Samsung F3's still the best or i have seen a few EB Gen 3 builds on here lately.
Or is there anything newer?
Wanting to flower a 4x4 (1.2m x 1.2m) tent
I have 4 x HLG-150H-54B (voltage output 27-54V, current output max 2.8A) drivers.
Thx @Rocket Soul
i was leaning towards the 4 strips, as i thought the space between 3 strips would be too wide, so option 2 it is.
I made a typo, the driver supplies 2.8amps
Not too bothered about the wasted power.
Hi everyone, i will finally have some time to build my veg light this weekend but want some advice first
My veg area is 70cm x 1.3m (27 x 51 inches)
I want to build 2 frames each 60 x 60cm (2feet x 2feet)
My driver is a HLG-150H-54B 2.5amps output (i have 5 of these, got them for £10 each :))...
Quick question guys.
I want to dim 1 driver, so i have a 100k pot.
Its only 90% efficient so i need to add a 10k resistor, to get 100% power.
Does the resistor go on the + or - leg?
not worried about dimming down, it will never run less than 10%
Thx @Rocket Soul
You are correct about the strips, they are 48V, they are
So i am right with the amp output (i was going to run parallel)
But wrong with the voltage
I seen a couple of the HLG-150H-54B going cheap, and at least i now know they wont work
After loads of reading and watching YT, i think i may have finally worked out how to pair drivers with strips, or have i?
So if i get a CC driver like the HLG-150H-54B 54vdc, 2.8amp.
If i use
2 Samsung F-strips they would be running at 75w each and 1.4amps each.
3 Samsung F-strips would be...
