The SSK-1730-560-Kit is a 6 board kit using Cree XPE-2 730nm Leds. The kit contains our standard 560mm x 24mm Sol-strip single channel Boards and is 120 watts. This kit was designed as a backfill for 730nm FAR Red and is ample for coverage of 5×5 or 6×6 for Emerson Effect(end of Day), also works to drive stretch on shorter strains or for early veg
- 6 pcs of the SSK-3560 Boards, 730nm, configured as a single channel. Boards are preloaded with Molex Solder less connectors for solder free termination
- 1 pc ERP SLM160W-1.05-160-ZA 160 watts, 0-10v dimmable.
- 1 pc 0-10V dimmer
- 6 pcs of Wago 221-412
- 6 pcs of Cutter 560mm x Double side Thermal adhesive tape*
- *The board comes already mounted with the thermal adhesive tape. Please advise if this is not your preferred option
- 8 ft black and red 18 AWG for interconnect
Assembly Notes: The SSK-1730-560-Kit used Metal Core PCB’s(aluminium) so while these provide good thermal spread you will find the whole assembly process more robust by mounting the boards onto a new or existing Aluminium plate for hanging. These can be placed in between exisiting White strip boards to provide that extra 660nm punch for flowering or plant structuring
“Red light on extension growth. Many plants grown under only red light, such as plants grown indoors under only red LEDs, have a stretched, elongated appearance; the leaves are thin and large and plants become tall. In most cases, plants grown under only red light do not have desirable growth characteristics. However, when a relatively small amount of blue light is added to red light, extension growth of plants is inhibited. Therefore, plants grown indoors with 80 to 90 percent red light and 10 to 20 percent blue light are quite compact, with smaller leaves and shorter stems. In greenhouses, plants receive the wide solar spectrum and so the color of light provided by supplemental lighting has much less impact on extension growth.
As discussed in previous articles, the amount of red light relative to the amount of far-red radiation (R:FR) also has a pronounced effect on leaf expansion and stem elongation. As far-red is added to red light, the R:FR decreases and extension growth increases. High-pressure sodium and fluorescent lamps emit a high R:FR while sunlight and incandescent lamps emit a low R:FR. In greenhouses, extension growth can be slightly inhibited using lamps with a low R:FR, or no far red as is the case for many LEDs. Indoors, the absence of far red in a light spectrum results in compact growth.”
