This exclusive LED, the CREE Lumia 5.2 GROW, is perfect if you want a simple yet powerful way to setup your LED lighting for growing plants.
Lumia, meaning art created with light, brings custom LED wavelengths developed by our researchers to provide better results than any other LED for plant growth with an emphasis on keeping power consumption low.
We have taken our experiencing in designing fixtures for commercial and DIY customers and developed a chip that delivers the perfect wavelengths for plant flowering and vegetation in a small footprint on a high end solid copper board designed to out perform other LEDs in its class. The board itself has a strong role in this LEDs perfection by reducing the heat of the LEDs so quickly they can produce their highest amount of light and last a very long time.
Expect to use only 1-2 of these high performance LEDs per 24x24 area in most scenarios.
Each channel is individually addressable (they can be individually dimmed) so you can adjust the perfect color for your tank.
What sets this Lumia apart?
The 730nm LEDs on board are almost a "cheat". They help the plants trigger a state that no other LED can by simulating a sunrise/sunset. To set your plants apart from others, you only need to turn on this channel for 15-20min at the beginning of the light cycle and 15-20min at the end of the light cycle and reap the benefits.
**Please note pictures are not of actual LED layout
Channel 1 - XTE-E Royal Blue (base blue spectrum for vegetation) (18V @ 1500mA)
Channel 2 - 730nm Hyper Red (designed for sunrise / sunset) (11v @ 350mA) - Key wavelength to get optimal growth
Channel 3 - 660nm Deep Red (flowering spectrum) (13V @ 700mA)
Channel 4 - 660nm Deep Red (flowering spectrum) (13V @ 700mA)
Channel 5 - XT-E Warm White (high noon effect) (18V @ 1500mA)
Q: Why is there 730nm LEDs on the chip?
A: Our researchers which have done research for some of the biggest hydroponic companies have identified that if you use our 730nm LED for 15min at the beginning of the light cycle and 15min at the end of the light cycle, in most cases you will produce substantially better results than without our 730nm chip. This sets the Lumia apart from other cheaper designs and is only available from LED Group Buy.
Q: Why is there Warm White LEDs on the chip?
A: We have done a lot of research to identify the best combination of wavelengths to provide growth and overall color. The Warm White LED is designed to mimic a high noon effect to stimulate growth.
Q: Which connectors do I need?
A: If you have one of these Lumia in series then you just need the "dual Molex connectors". If you have 2 or more in series (usually it would only be two) then you need one of the "dual Molex connectors" and then one of the "Molex interconnects" per additional LED in series.
Q: What do I need to power the Lumia?
A: There are several different ways to power the Lumia. Some standard ways are covered in the arcticle located: http://ledgroupbuy.zendesk.com/entries/24847592-What-do-I-need-to-power-the-Lumia-5-1-LED
Q: Why should I choose the Lumia?
A: We take pride in making sure our customers get the best performance at the lowest cost. The LEDs we implement in the Lumia are of the top grade and some are only available from LEDgroupbuy such as the 730nm and 600nm strings. Don't settle for sub par LEDs that will only last a couple months.
