* Efficacy is measured at board level and measured from 300-780nm . Efficiency increases as the fixture is dimmed. Wideband diodes create near red and infrared light above 680nm, critical nutrients to plant growth
The Electric Sky 180 projects light in a rectangular footprint with its linear lenses. The modular design will adapt to several compact grow area sizes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does the Electric Sky work for veg and flower?
Yes, the Electric Sky’s spectrum is specifically designed for rapid growth from seed to flower. In veg, plants will respond quickly and exhibit tight inter-nodal spacing. In flower, flowers will be dense and flavorful, with production from the top to the bottom of the plant.
Q: What does a wideband spectrum mean?
The wideband spectrum means that the Electric Sky uses special diodes that output multiple colors at once, rather than just one color each. They are designed to output a balanced spectrum tuned just for your plants, with a color output that creates a significant amount of energy in the near-infrared range (680-740nm) that helps the plant make more efficient use of light for a satisfying growth response.
Q: What is the recommended hanging distance for the Electric Sky?
For clones, seedlings, or plants just moved under the Electric Sky, the recommended hanging height is 36-48”. During vegetative growth, the Electric Sky can get as close as to 18-20 inches away at full power, and closer with the dimmable functionality. In flower, the optimal hang height is 12-18 inches, but plants can get as close to 6 inches away without burning as long as they are healthy. The combination of hang height and intensity control allows you illuminate your plants in almost any configuration.
Q: How much heat does the Electric Sky put out?
The Electric Sky puts out on average, 50% less heat than HPS systems, especially because the light itself does not heat up your plants. A small amount of airflow will keep it cool because the entire light is made out of a heatsink. In most grow situations, a 4 inch exhaust fan is all that is needed to cool up to 2 Electric Sky units in a grow tent.
Q: What is the maximum recommended ambient air temperature?
For still air installations with little airflow (such as a grow tent or mounted very close to the ceiling), a maximum air temperature of 85°F is recommended. In large commercial rooms or situations with plenty of airflow, maximum air temp can get up to 90°F. The ideal temperature for the best growth is 78-82°F.
Q: How do I clean my Electric Sky?
The LEDs are protected by the lenses on the underside of the unit. Use a microfiber cloth to clean the lenses on the underside of the unit. Compressed air is the best way to remove debris from the upper side of the heatsink.
Q: Can I get my Electric Sky wet?
We do not recommend getting the Electric Sky wet.
Q: What kind of eye protection do I need?
Sunglasses are recommended when caring for your plants for eye protection. The lenses of the unit help keep light pointed downwards, away from your eyes for a comfortable growing experience. The spectrum itself looks like evening sunlight.
Q: Can I plug the Electric Sky into 120V or 240V power sources? International plugs?
Yes, using the supplied adapters, the Electric Sky will automatically operate from a voltage range of 100V – 277V.
If you order from the UK, EU, Australia we include the proper plugs for your location.
The plug on the Electric Sky is a standard C13 plug found on many appliances. A standard power cord will plug into the Electric Sky. Find an adapter that fits your country for compatibility to any AC power source by searching for “C13 power cord”
Q: What kind of guarantee do you have for results and performance?
We provide a full 90 day money back guarantee on all of our Electric Sky grow lights and a full 3 year warranty. This means we have your back in the rare event that something goes wrong with your grow light or even if your light gets damaged in shipping. In these cases, we will help you replace or repair the light as quickly as possible so your garden is uninterrupted.
