    Blurple light rebuilt mod help

    I could run multiple strips with a combined volt less than max rating on driver. Correct? Two strips 36v=72v. With these drivers being 700ma, the LEDs would be driven very soft resulting in high efficiency? I was hoping to run a few Samsung strips. I'll find the specs on those. The cxm-22 from...

    DIY LED utilizing existing drivers

    All but two fans are shot. I'm only concerned with the drivers. I'll put together heatsink and led if i determine these will work. I believe passive cooling will be ok with the active exhaust of the cabinet I'll be utilizing. Actually, I'm planning a 2.5'x5', similar to yours. Divided up for...

    DIY LED utilizing existing drivers

    It does state 700ma, but no max watt listed. Also constant current. That sounds like quite the project. Full spectrum for what footprint?

    DIY LED utilizing existing drivers

    Thanks for the insight. As much as I'd like to make these work, i also understand the benefit of using new drivers for build. Just for s&g, the one driver is showing output of 46-75v. Does that suggest i could run a total of LEDs up to 75v? Unfortunately, that driver does not list wattage. The...

    DIY LED utilizing existing drivers

    I understand using meter to accurately giraffe the drivers, but i was hoping a simple decoding of the numbers on label couple help me decide what i could run with them. I was only going to build out what these drivers could handle. Basically a first time project for some experience before I go...

    DIY LED utilizing existing drivers

    Any help or push in the right direction is much appreciated. Any led builders out there? My goal is to use some existing drivers from a couple blurples to power some new tech. Either cobs or strips. Ultimately, this diy led will be inside a cabinet grow. If i can only get a small veg light...

    Blurple light rebuilt mod help

    Wondering what the hell I'm looking at here. Light fixture was labeled as 1200w LED. Don't know what actual draw was. I can't decipher the drivers and power supply. If these are worth using, what strip or cob could i power? The other light is a 300w. Anybody with any help or direction it's...

    DIY perpetual cabinet build. Q&A

    I like the idea of setting a threshold for environmental control, but my fear is not needing that option due to the fact the cabinet in question will probably need a fan running 100%, 24/7. I'm not sure yet. I guess there is the ability to still do that with the digital control. Cost comparison...

    DIY perpetual cabinet build. Q&A

    Are these the ones with simple variable controller or the ones with the digital temp controller? I'm curious of the functions. Do i try the digital controller which varies according to the temps or just go with the simple variable speed and set it manually? Being enclosed inside a cabinet I'm...

    DIY perpetual cabinet build. Q&A

    Fans, filters, and air exchange. General cubic foot of the box is approx 87cf. Pretty much any 4" fan will exchange the air efficiently. An extremely quiet fan and a speed controller will be goal. What's anybody using in the 4" sizes? I currently have a hydrofarm 165cfm. It's loud even inside...

    Hello farm. Been a while since I've been around. Currently have nothing going. Planning a cabinet build for my reboot in the near future. My goal is to build a plywood cabinet in which i hope to create a perpetual grow. Utilizing LED and attempting to automate the environmentals as much as...

    Blurple light rebuilt mod help

    Any luck with your mod? I've since retired a couple blurples myself. I have the same interest in diy with these parts. If only the diy LED gurus would bless this thread. I'd love to run a couple samsung strips for a cabinet project. Saw on YouTube a general explanation of drivers and led...

    Ongoing Soil Grow

    Happy holidays everybody. Whatever it is for you and yours. Lots of a whole lot of nothing going on here. Barely keeping a few mothers alive for future. Cleaning up room and resituating. Small issue with spider mites. They're gone.

    Oooooo-ooooooo, that smell.... Let's talk odor control.

    Never breaks 50% in the room. I'm thinking a better speed controller to start. Or fan with controller. Not sure about the combination i have if it's well suited for my space. Probably undersized.

    Oooooo-ooooooo, that smell.... Let's talk odor control.

    I remember having this conversation with you before about refurbishing your carbon filters. I like the idea.

    Oooooo-ooooooo, that smell.... Let's talk odor control.

    Been using carbon filter. Trying to figure out the right combination of fan died and filter size. Not rocket science, but a little tricky being completely stealth odorless. Been set up for two years and can never stay odorless for more than three months at a time. You just use a carbon filter...

    Oooooo-ooooooo, that smell.... Let's talk odor control.

    I've read somewhere the idea of a speed controller is to increase the efficiency of the filter. Slowing the airflow to allow the carbon to capture odor more effectively. Who's using what? I've also read those simple $19.95 dial controllers suck. Recommendations on speed controllers... Or, fans...

    Oooooo-ooooooo, that smell.... Let's talk odor control.

    What's the cubic ft of your space? In relation to the size fans and filters? Speed controllers or wide open? Run 24/7?
