I’ve always had my fan inside the grow area, pushing the air out. Or I guess pulling it out. Not sure what the correct terminology is.

Mine is right outside my grow. But i guess it is all about how you look at it. Glass half empty, glass half full. Technally it is pulling the air out of the grow, but it is pushing it the rest of the way through the system. So both? Lol

I bought one of those but it was pretty hard to use. Broke down and got a wi-fi microscope.

So amazon must have loved me today. I got my fan, heat sink, thermal tape and the reat fof my wire for my light.

Driver and led strips ar still on schedule for monday. Iv got everything else as far as i can figure. So monday will be the day we build a light.

So I thought I would though up a few drawings of what I am planning for the build, both the light and the room its self. The light will an off driver build, I have two grow rooms with a utility closet of sorts between them for my Driver boards, breaker box for grow room, timer, fans and all the other stuff.
Drawing 1 shows a rough layout of the grow the light will be in and how the wire for the light will travel.(comment 17 has a good shot of the grows)

This one is how the driver board is going to be setup. Each grow will have two 320w lights(starting with one) and each grow will have one driver board with both lights on it.

For now anyway, I might change it once I get the drivers and have one to get a good reference on size. I cut a piece of paper for the layout but it did not help.

Here are a few more just thrown in



Any comments/suggestions/problems all are welcome.
More to come.

It’s late, and you have a lot of drawings lol. But they look good from here.

@dbrn32, @NeoGroR finally got my last shipment. The driver and led strips.



Picked up my machine screws and found my spool of wire that was for some reason in the box with my failed drip line project. Guess i thought i would need wire for the next pluming job. Lol.


Gone cook some cow then somke some flower and build a light.

i dont know why they are all upside-down

@dbrn32

I had to switch to my computer, it is to hard to do this from phone. I am using a standard extinction cord with black/white/green wires. The cord from the DC side of the driver will terminate with a female plug end and the light itself will start with a Male style plug end from there going to the junction box and out to the led strips.
