Our LED Chips:
It is important to investigate the LED engine in your LED grow light, after all it’s the most expensive part of your investment and the heart of your grow light.
The majority of LED grow lights made in China use in-house assembled LED chips with standard, off-the-shelf diodes, such as Bridgelux and Epistar. Taking these diodes and making an LED is risky for the end consumer buying the product. These companies have no binding nor do they have LM79 or LM80 data on the LED chips. They are virtually unverified and inconsistent products. The process of making LEDs requires a highly sterile environment with no humidity. We can tell you from previous visits to factories in China (we tried them too many years ago) that the majority of them have sub-standard conditions—no clean rooms, hot humid environments, and no proper packaging and handling of the LEDs. Every LED batch off the production line comes out with slightly different lumen output. On all properly monitored LED assembly plants such as Cree, there is a minimum and maximum range per diode series that usually has a 10% maximum allowed fluctuation. This is called binning. When your fixture features many LEDs, that 10% variance in the LEDs can equal a lot of your overall intensity. This is why we make our lights in the USA with high quality verified components.
WHY USE CREE LED CHIPS?
Cree isn’t just another LED manufacturer. In fact, they have 2500 patents and 3000 more pending. Cree is at the forefront of the technology with a relentless pursuit of quality through innovation and design to accelerate LED adoption, to push the boundaries of what’s possible with LED lighting, and to bring forth higher-performance LED’s while bringing down the cost of LED solutions. Cree is the only company with the highest performing diode material which is Silicate carbide (synthetically grown crystal). Cree’s mission is to render energy inefficient lighting obsolete and everything they do is with that mission in mind. No other LED company has done as much as Cree to develop the LED lighting market.
No other LED manufacturer is as stringent in their testing or keeps the bar as high as Cree for manufacturers who use their components in their products.
To be allowed to say, “Powered by Cree” your product must have successfully completed Cree’s Thermal, Electrical, Mechanical, Photometric and Optical (TEMPO)testing process, in addition to the special invitation by CREE. We at Spectrum King LED are proud to say that we are one of a small handful of companies globally to have done just that.
LM79 & LM80 DATA
LM refers to lumen maintenance. LM79 is a report that offers a detailed look at all the photometric data on a light source, including:
· Total lumens
· Lumens per watt
· CCT color temp
· THD (total harmonic distortion)
· PF (power factor)
· Spread of light
LM80 is the report for the junction temperature of the LED and the LED’s life time. Real LED chip manufacturers are required to delay product release to the market for a year. This is done to truly test the LED and make sure it does what the factories say it will. These tests must be done by third party labs that are certified by the Department of Energy.
HOW IS THE TEST DONE?
A batch of LEDs (usually 50+) is tested at the junction point of the LED at three different temperatures, usually 55, 85 and 105 degrees Celsius. The lumen output is recorded every hour for 6,000 to 8,000 hours (almost a year) and a base line curve is made. With this data, a detailed performance chart can be produced showing actual LED lumens over time. You can now determine the degradation curve and know the lumens and lifespan of a specific lighting fixture.
DON'T BE A VICTIM TO UNCERTIFIED COMPONENTS!!!
Many consumers buy LEDs and get very excited when they turn the fixture on for the first time. However, after a few months, they are shocked that their LED is putting out half the lumens it once did.
C.O.B MYTH AND HIGH WATTAGE LEDs
Another point of confusion for customers is the constant advertisement of C.O.B. (chip on board) LEDs and how they will dominate the market. As a commercial manufacturer of some of the best grow lights in the business, we are here to tell you that their popularity and dominance are a bit overblown.
C.O.B. LEDs have been around for over a decade. There are only three reasons to choose a C.O.B. LED:
1. Reduce the cost of materials to make the LED
2. Save money by eliminating the need for circuit boards
3. Group more LED diodes into one small area
C.O.B. lights offer lower efficiency and overall light output. By adding and cramming more diodes into a tight array that share the same substrate, heat becomes a big issue. As the C.O.B.’s run hotter, they:
· Emit fewer lumens
· Have a lower efficiency
· Develop a shorter lifespan
Take a look below at some of these in-house made LEDs and how they discolor and degrade over a short period of time.
DON’T BE FOOLED BY COMPANIES THAT CLAIM TO OFFER HIGH WATTAGE CHIPS!!!
Standard self-contained diodes are the leading LEDs in the industry and have performances that are double that of C.O.B. LEDs. Every LED that claims to be 10, 20, 50 or even 100 watts is a C.O.B.
WHY IS SAFETY REGULATORY COMPLIANCE (UL, ETL, etc.) SUCH A BIG DEAL?
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is a world leading, independent product safety certification organization. The U.S. National Electrical Code requires that lamps and fixtures be tested by a recognized, independent safety-testing agency before they can be legally sold and installed. All lights sold by Spectrum King LED are UL certified and labeled. Let’s just say that you like peace of mind and you like to trust the things you buy to not start fires, fail miserably, shock you or cause any harm of any kind OR JUST FAIL. Would that be a set of reasonable assumptions? For most people that is exactly what they want: to buy something and have faith in it to function properly for a long time without worry.
Along comes UL! UL stands for Underwriters Laboratories which is a non-profit safety agency created over 100 years ago. UL is recognized worldwide as a leader in product safety testing and certification. When a product is UL listed that means that every component of that product has been verified to do what it is meant to do and what it has been claimed to do by its manufacturer. None of “sure it does” or “it kind of does if…” etc. In clear black and white, it has been thoroughly tested, put through an entire series of verifications and all functionality validated by an independent third party lab. No room to stretch the truth or mislead the public, just a cold hard ‘yes it passes and here is its number” or it FAILED! UL listed product can be used with confidence because they have been scrutinized down to the circuit level and have come out the other side with a number that is accepted worldwide. UL sets the standards of testing electric components and devices, period.
Unlike many of our competitors, we can say that we have UL listed products. It wasn’t cheap but we felt and still feel that when we provide our customers with a product we want them to know that they will get years of worry free usage from that product and nothing guarantees that better than being UL approved.
WHAT IS IP65 AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?
The IP65 rating is what makes our LEDs some of the best grow lights in the industry. IP65 rated products can be used in wet or humid environments like grow rooms and greenhouses, without the chance of failure or danger. Few horticultural fixtures currently on the market sold in any quantity are rated safe for use in wet or humid environments. In reality, the bulk of lighting fixtures and bulbs sold today are not approved for the very place they are marketed to work in, not Spectrum King. As more rules and regulations come into the indoor gardening industry, many insurance companies will not provide policies to protect businesses and investments because they are essentially involved in a high-risk operation by using electrical devices not meant to be in wet or humid environments. As more legal states open themselves to new legitimate grow operations city building inspectors and fire inspectors will be coming through to verify the operation is safe and up to code. Many fixtures once taken for granted as the industry standard no longer comply with city building and fire codes and insurance companies will not sign off on them either. Cannabis is being regulated like the food production industry and also requires sanitization of equipment where food “cannabis” is produced, having an IP rated fixture is going to give you the ability to quickly decontaminate the room and start your new grow cycle.
Do you want peace of mind? Then use LED lights with IP ratings to grow plants. You want to be able to know that if something does go wrong like a fire or hazardous waste exposure, you will not lose your whole investment or cause major damage to your facility by a falling light fixture. That’s what the IP65 rating gives you. It’s a guarantee that a product has been verified safe for wet or humid environments.
