Need driver wiring help!


#21

Put a slight amount of tension by pulling on wire and depress connector with something small directly on the detent of connector. Don’t push too hard, they can break.


#22

That may be a bad example, that’s connector on an eb strip. Same point though.


#23

Does this wiring look the same as what you designed? The boards are attached and I don’t have enough wire to make another mistake. Lol. Hope I’m doing it right.


#24

Yes that’s technically same wiring, as long as what I outlined in red isn’t another wire going to board.


#25

Ok, cool. What you drew in red is simply the outline of the heat sink. I’ll get back to you in a few


#26

I don’t know what I’d do without y’all @dbrn32 and @Aolelon !! It WORKS!! doin’ the happy dance!

I guess animated GIFs don’t work.

I can’t thank you both enough!! More importantly, my girls thank you!!


#28

Awesome glad to hear!..


#29

Awesome job! Glad I could help and hope you enjoy the light.


#30

@dbrn32 saves the day again. Who says all heros wear capes…


#31

Hahahaha, I’m sure you or several others could’ve helped with that. Just glad we got another one in the books.


#32

Yea I actually made a drawing for the 600 because there arent any videos or diagrams online for it that I could find, I was looking for it on my phone but cant seem to locate it.
Edit**here it is.


#33

Looks a little neater than mine. I haven’t been able to draw or write well since high school. Busted three of four knuckles on my right hand. Two had to be reconstructed and the third pinned, I can barely hold a pencil in winter months. Been long enough you figure out how to get by though.


#34

@Aeolian & @dbrn32 Since I couldn’t find any videos on assembling this light either, I videoed the whole assembly. I went back and re-shot the stuff that I messed up initially; so I should be able to cobble together enough footage to make an assembly video tutorial. We’ll see if I can manage to edit it well enough to feel like publishing it. If I do, you’ll both get credit, for sure. Hopefully it’ll give ILGM forums a little extra traffic.

I’m doing the same with the tent I bought. I’m hoping to end up with a few review videos as well as some component assembly and grow room build videos.

Thanks again!


#35

As long as it conveys what you’re trying to say it doesnt necessarily have to be neat haha, just get the job done.


#36

@dbrn32 & @Aolelon How high above the canopy do you recommend hanging this (HLG 600H V2 3000k) light? Same for veg and flower? I hung the light today and put it about 24” above just to be safe, until I get some advice. Thanks y’all!!


#37

At 24” you should probably dim it a decent amount and gradually increase to harden the plants. Flowering there or a little closer would probably be fine. Vegging you could do dimmed a lot or ran pretty high, there’s a lot of light there.


#38

Ok. So, start at 50% dim and work up to 75%? That’d save electricity. When I turned it on inside the tent I was like, “WHOA!! That’s BRITE!!!” Lol!


#39

You wont really need to increase until you’re in flower. These white LEDs veg plants very well with just minimal lighting. So when you are getti g ready to flip, is when I would begin increasing the light.
What i would do now is start it out like you have it, then lower it gradually over the next week or so.
I vegged this with only around 200-230w.
