My DIY LM561C Build for a 5x5 Tent

  1. Hello!

    For the last week I have been collecting some information about LED grow lights and I have decided to make my own :)

    I'm using a 5x5 Grow Tent and I can waste 600-800W. Having this in mind I have come up with a build:

    24x LM561C F-series-Gen3 LT-FB22B Linear Strip @ 3000k
    Where To Buy: SI-B8V521B20WW Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. | Optoelectronics | DigiKey

    4x Mean Well HLG-185H-C700A
    Where To Buy: HLG-185H-C700A Mean Well | Mouser Europe

    Each drive support 6 strips. As it is in series, it should be 700mA per strip.
    These strips will be mounted like Fluence Spydrx.

    How efficient is this build?
    How would be the PPFD in my 5x5 with this build?
    Is a good heatsink required?

    Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Buy 25 of them since it's cheaper based on bulk prices than buying 24. My only input LoL. Always nice to have an extra too.
  3. Yes, I will buy 25 :)
  4. Great choice. I have built using Samsung strips too. I use the flexible ones both are equally good hard and flexible. You will really enjoy the outcome.
