  2. Common PAR Meters Understate the Intensity of PhytoMAX LED Grow Lights- Some by 26% or More

    Common PAR Meters Understate the Intensity of PhytoMAX LED Grow Lights- Some by 26% or More
    PAR lighting meters can be incredibly useful tools when growing plants, but as with any tool it is important to understand their limitations. All PAR meters are made with a sensor that counts individual photons ("particles" of light). These sensors aren't perfect though, and record some wavelengths (colors) of light better than others. Spectroradiometer-based PAR meters correct for this inaccuracy...

  7. How many lights can I run on a circuit?

    How many lights can I run on a circuit?
    It's important to never overload your electrical circuits, as they can overheat and create a fire hazard, or trip a circuit breaker and stop important equipment in your grow. To ensure you're being safe, you need to check what is plugged in already, and how much the circuit can handle. If you have any questions or doubts about your electrical...
  8. Maximizing yield with LED grow lights

    Maximizing yield with LED grow lights
    Gardening with LED Grow Lights rather than HPS or other outdated technology is proving to be one of the biggest advancements for indoor gardening in decades. Growing plants with LEDs is becoming increasingly common, but practical ways to get the best results when using this new technology are still being discovered and shared. Swapping out old HPS setups with LEDs...
  9. What is the Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) of Black Dog LED Grow Lights?

    What is the Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) of Black Dog LED Grow Lights?
    Black Dog lights don't have a color temperature, and to understand why you need to know what "color temperature" means. The correlated color temperature of a light source is a measurement of the average hue or color of light as it appears to the human eye, in terms of what temperature (in degrees Kelvin) you would need to heat something...
