The BC LED GROW Advantage
BC LED Grow Lights
LED’s have existed for almost 50 years, but until recently, they lacked the light output and energy efficiency necessary to make them a viable alternative to traditional lighting solutions. Since 2008, the lumen output per watt of LED’s has more than doubled, and the best led’s are now on par with HID lights in terms of lumens/watt output, but more importantly LED's are exceeding HID in PAR output which is the actual light abosrbed/needed for photosynthesis, with one exception, they are far more efficient.
The most important wave lengths for plant growth and flowering are found at the 420nm, 450nm, 630nm, and 660nm wavelengths. Red is more important for flowering and yields, and blue more important for node intervals and faster growth and absorption. We deliver these wavelengths, scientifically balanced for maximum efficiency. What once was 70% of light wasted is now light harvested. Additionally, BC LED GROW led’s use an optimized blend of 60 degree, 90 degree, and 120 degree LED chips to maximize canopy coverage.
In the configuration designed, light coverage for the grow area is maximized and light penetration is increased when compared to lights using a single spread angle led light. In response to the increased demand for a higher power led light, BC LED GROW has recently released the BlackStar Label of led grow lights here in Canada. This elite line uses only the highest quality components.
The BlackStar line was engineered from the ground up based on feedback from our customers on the most needed light output values for your growing footprint. Using custom encapsulated chipsets, we are proud to offer a true 3watt chip led in the BlackStar product line.
