Single Cree CXB3590 COB 3,125 micro mole, 400 watt LED Grow Light
Reliable Full Spectrum Grow Light
The Broomstraw Farm BF3590.1 model has a single Cree Chip On Board (COB) LED that is an excellent choice for home or farm growers who desire a single light source for a single plant or several smaller plants or clones in early stage growth. This light is also useful in a 4x4 grow tent when the grower wishes to arrange multiple BF3590.1 lights in a specific pattern.
The single COB LED produces the full spectrum wavelength from 380 nm to 480 nm. The BF3590.1 produces 12,000 Lumens using around 100 watts of electricity. At a distance of 8 inches above plant canopy, this light delivers 1,890 micro moles PPFD directly below the light. At 23 inches directly below the light, this light delivers 890 micro moles PPFD. We believe that this light cone will deliver vegetative and flower growth over a 2 foot by 2 foot area at the appropriate distances above the plant canopy. Please see the picture further down for more information.
The top of the unit has the on/off switch, the power connection, and the fan vent.
The coverage area depends upon the height of the BF3590.1 above the plants:
Safety: Do not look directly into the Cree COB LED. Small amounts of UV / IR wave lengths are produced as well as very bright visible spectrum light. Cree classifies the CXB3590 COB LED as RG-1 (low risk). We recommend using UVA/ UVB rated sunglasses under high intensity lighting.
Please note that this is an electrical device. It is not waterproof or water resistant. We strongly recommend plugging the BF3590.1 into a standard household GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) electrical outlet. GFI outlets are now standard in kitchen, bath, and workshop electrical applications.
This unit is assembled in China with globally sourced parts. The Cree COB LEDs are designed in the US and fabricated in China to Cree specifications.
