DIY with bridgelux eb strips


#321

Sounds good to me.


#322

With 3 qb96 in a 3x6 300watts would t really happen would it? Here’s where I started
For 3x6 I’d need 30ish 560gen2 at $12 each that’s $360 plus driver. 3 of the qb96
With heatsink is $300. 3 of the 288v2 wouldn’t cover 3x6?would it? Idk. 3x6 is the space. I’d love to do strips, but only if they are cheaper than the qb96.


#323

What size eb gen 2? You wouldn’t need 30 1120mm, and the 560’s aren’t $12 each.

I wouldn’t suggest running the 96 over 175 watts. Not saying you can’t, just what looks like makes the most sense to me.


#324
  1. That’s 44inches. I didn’t know they were that long. How many of those for a 3x6 and a part number. I love arrow but the site is shit for my phone. If I don’t run them over 175 wouldn’t it cover a smaller space. Idk. Sorry for all the questions.

#325

the EB GEN2 are much cheaper in the 3500k color like $7/ea for the 560s


#326


Gen 2 - parts indicated (1120mm)


#327

That’s what mine are


#328

@Budbrother posted part numbers below, thanks homie!

You would need exactly half as many 1120mm as you calculated 560mm strips.


#329

Thank you so much @dbrn32 @Budbrother. Looks like a strip build it will be.
So to recap
A 3x6 will need 15 of the 1120-560gen2
Correct? I’m ordering Monday since it’s payday. What driver. I originally like the idea of 3 lights and 2 drivers. But with 44inch strips I don’t think I could.


#330

You should have one driver per fixture, however you do it.

I’m not necessarily sure 1120’s are the best way to go. I was really just questioning the $12 per strip.


#331

Please advise me. What’s the best strip for a 3x6. 560 is 22inches I was thinking 30 would be 3 lights with 22inch strips on them. 2 drivers 1 for 10strips 1 for 20strips. But if three drivers is how I should go so be it.


#332

If you want to do exactly 30 strips for 3 light fixtures 10 strips per hlg-120h-c700a would satisfy that. You’d probably be on bottom end of good with that.

A cheaper alternative would be to do two lights 14 strips each on hlg-185h-c700a.


#333

Another member said qb 132 is available in 3500k. How does price look doing 8 of those on two hlg-240h-c1750’s? I bet it’s a little cheaper.


#334

Will the 2 lights with 14 strips each kick ass in a 3x6. I mean i barley understand 2.5 umol or whatever I read. But if that’s the need for this that’s what I would want. My current grow the nugs are coming in solid as fuck. I would like this to be equal.

#336

Use this part number for 3500k instead.

BXEB-L0560Z-35E2000-C-B3


#337

Thanks @DoobieNoobie. Lol. Hangthebanksters just said that. :hugs:


#338

With 14 strips and the hlg-185 it $156 a light. That’s $312 for a light for a 3x6. The qb 132 are $133 for 4, plus the driver. Close.
Second question(lol millionth) how much is too much. Ie 3 of those 14strip lights in the 3x6 . Would I never go beyond 50%


#339

I run 11 strips on a 1050a driver dimmed a little two times so 22 strips in a 2.5x6.5 space and thing is bright! I think you will like it.

@dbrn32
I purchased 10 BXEB-L0560Z-35E2000-C-B3, 10 strips to run on a hlg-120h-c700b. If I am doing it right the strips are running at 19.5 volts which makes the light 195 volts Is that to high. I think the hlg-120h-c700b has a top voltage of 215 volts. Is this right?
