Today is the day I basically try and steal knowledge from you, through my searching and more searching, I want to build a light not SIL or Cob but LED strips. Might be wrong there as im not a light guru just a book worm.
I know I can’t add links so, screen shots is where I hope I can give you the info you need to assist me properly.
First this light build will be to support clone mothers maybe start seeds.
Coverage needs to be 24"x24" Height adjustment is not really a issues. Just want the best, coverage, and canopy penetration, that I can say I made. im big on DIY.
These are the LED strips I want to use
Will those work for what I’m needing. They say 3500 same as HLG rspec QB
If they will work, how many would I need, they are 11", 280mm long basically 1" wide 24mm
What type of material would I need to mount them to? Do I need to do anything special before mounting?
What driver(preferred with dimmer) would I need to carry total given amount of strips.
Would they be wired in series?
What size wire would be best for the wiring?
Am I crazy for wanting to do this ? Seems like if I’m half right I can build this light for under 150usd and it still be an amazing light. By far better than the LED kit I purchased
