Another Cob build but more advanced

Discussion in 'LED and other Lighting' started by NorthernEmeraldNursery, Apr 18, 2017.

  1. So for my birthday which was last Sunday my wife knew I wanted to build another light and kept asking me all these questions what I wanted I told her parts for another cob light. So she went through my drawings and notes for the next cob light I wanted to build and ordered me parts. And she ordered the right stuff thank God. So here it is 4- Vero29 gen7 cobs, 5 different color monochromatic leds and drivers, MakersDriver & Makers manual dimming control. Oh and the Malibu Pie seeds I order for my birthday came in at the same time so another win. Here's my team og collection so far.

    lucky guy you are though, you got lights!!
  7. I had a feeling that's what she was doing I just hoped she ordered the right stuff lol. Nice you can't go wrong with a new system for your truck.

    Good women, like fine wines are hard to come by. Mine is very supportive of my grow efforts.

    That looks like it should be interesting. I added about 30w of 660nm and 5w of 390nm to each of my 4 array bars. I have them switched so that I add them during flowering-still a work in progress so it'll be next years grow before I see how it works.

    Subbed! That's mad cool! Can't beat presents related to our passions. Or thoughtful wives.
    I like me an enhanced spectrum build, & a grow show. Looking forward to seeing this.
    Good luck all around!

    Awesome! Care to elaborate on the Makers Driver?
  14. The makers driver is going to run the 5 channel color monochromatic leds which will be powered by a mean well LPV-100-48 and using makers manual dimmer controller to dim each color. The makers driver takes 48v to power it.

    Sounds cool! I'll have to look more into it. Really interested to see how this turns out, good luck!
  16. Need some help guys picking a driver. Last build I used HLG-185H-C1400B per 4 cobs but I want to use a bigger driver this time.

    What should I use for 4 vero29 gen7 cobs-
    Mean Well HLG-240H-C1050B
    Mean Well HLG-240H-C1400B
    Mean Well HLG-320H-C1400B
    Mean Well HLG-320H-C2100B
