The Photontek 30W UV Supplemental Light LED Bar offers a Light Spectrum addition for growers who are looking to improve their crop’s quality through UV output inclusion during the Flowering grow stage. Designed to fit directly on the popular Photontek X and XT LED fixtures, this unit has an integrated power unit and can also be daisy-chainable.
Create a complete premium fruit or flower by using ultraviolet signalling on your grow. This technology is a powerful tool for growers that are interested to create a unique final crop, affecting its flavour, smell and increasing by up to 30% the main substance to be extracted. It will also help to control mold formation with gentle UV-B doses and reducing the need for chemical interventions by the effect of UV-A.
This unique fixture was specially designed to provide the ideal UV-B [280-315 nm] and UV-A [315-400 nm] radiation doses to your plants based on scientific support. A single fixture can provide 2.2 kJ/day (12 hours) of UV-B energy and 518 kJ/day (12 hours) of UV-A output. This translates to a fixture output of 100 mW of UV-B and 12000 mW UV-A. Photontek ensures that this fixture does not produce UV-C radiation. Integrate this technology together with the Photontek X and XT LED Range frames and follow the directives on our Grow Light Strategies.
Daisy chain cable will allow you to easily connect several fixtures. To ensure unit performance, this LED bar has a single input and output socket for the Power Cable or Daisy Chain Cable depending on the use of that bar. For this reason, the power cable [PTEKM0025 (120 V) | PTEKM0030 (240 V)] 13 ft. (4m) and the daisy chain (PTEKM0026) 5 ft. (1.5 m) are sold separately.
The Photontek 30W UV Supplemental LED Bar was designed to fit directly into the X and XT fixtures. To make sure you achieve the best light spread over the canopy, we recommend:
Integrate a minimum of 2 units of 30W UV Supplemental Light LED Bar, with:
- X 465W PRO | 4 x 4 ft footprint
- X 600W PRO | 5 x 5 ft footprint
- XT 1000W CO2 | 5 x 5 ft footprint w/ CO2 Supplement
Integrate a minimum 3 units of 30W UV Supplemental Light LED Bar, with:
- X 1000W PRO | 6.5 x 5 ft footprint
Recommended UV-B + UV-A Radiation Application
Always mix the supplemental UV-B + UV-A radiation with the previously mentioned Photontek X and XT Full Spectrum LED Range, starting from 12 hours photoperiod to less during the Flowering grow stage, at least 4 weeks before harvest.
For a good UV radiation spread, ensure to install the recommended minimum units and follow the distance to canopy referred on the Grow Light Strategies table.
If you notice plant damage, we recommend increasing the distance between fixture and canopy or decrease the UV light output delivered to your plants by reducing the photoperiodic time.
Precautions regarding Photontek 30W UV Supplemental LED Bar
The Photontek 30W UV Supplemental LED Bar it´s an equipment that delivers UV-B (near UV Erythemal) and UV-A (near UV-black light) electromagnetic radiation spectrum with wavelengths from 280 to 400 nm.
To avoid any biological affects in physical human body, please switch the power off when installing or/and during the maintenance processes on your grow system.
If turning Off UV Bars won’t be possible, all exposed skin should be covered with opaque material including face, neck, head, hands, and harms. It is assumed that other body parts are covered if wearing proper laboratory attire. Example, long pants, closed toe shoes, gloves, long sleeve lab coats and protective glasses.
Do not look directly to the light as the UV radiation from the light fixture can damage eyes and skin.
Do not restrict the airflow across the fixtures to avoid any heat build-up which may reduce drastically the lifetime of your UV supplemental LED bars.
Do not put the UV Supplemental LED Bar in contact with any surface while still ON.
