LED helps

Hi,

 

I'm going to set up a 38 leds with 40 degree len light fixture. I have 3 options of combination and hope you can advice.

 

Looking at 14kk output.

 

Here is the combination like,

 

Option 1 : 24 XPE RB, 2 XPE Blue, 2 red, 2 Green, 4 XML CW, 4 XML NW.

 

Option 2 : 24 XPE RB, 2 XPE Blue, 2 red, 2 Green, 8 XML CW.

 

Option 3 : 24 XPE RB, 2 XPE Blue, 2 red, 2 Green, 8 XML NW.

 

Option 4: any other suggest?

24 Royal Blue, 12 Neutral White, 6 Turquoise, 6 Deep Red

 

40 degree on the Royal Blue and NW

60 degree on the Turquoise, Deep Red

 

Keep each Turquoise and Deep reds next to each other and next to a Royal Blue

You can also put the Turquoise and Deep red on same driver.

Can I divide it into 2 heatsink/module? Such as 12RB, 6NW, 3T & 3DR per heatsink/module.

 

btw, how many True Violet if I'll to be added in?

Ya that would be easy to do. True Violets should match the number of Royal Blues or Neutral Whites. Anything more is a waste anything lower is going to be too little.

According to your proposal (24 Royal Blue, 12 Neutral White, 6 Turquoise, 6 Deep Red

), how many TV should I add in?

12 True Violet

 

But what size is your tank because you can probably do something like

18 Royal Blue, 12 Neutral White, 12 TV, 6T, 6DR

This would save you some cost

Hi,

 

My tank is 36x24x24". I may do 2 modules for it.

 

Btw, Would like to place order a few pieces of CREE XML Single Netural White and XPG Single Cool White but there is no "Add To Cart" button.

 

Please advice.

Never mind you need the 24 Royal Blue to get the coverage.

 

For the singles, try refreshing the browser, sometimes something might load funny and prevent you from clicking the add to cart button.

How about this configuration per module?

You really dont need the CW and NW.

People do that because of the lack of warmer colors in CW

Using NW only is the way to go mixed in with the DR and T.

Keep it simple and you will enjoy it more.

I have t5s at the moment. Currently i have zoos, acans, some rics and yumas. Ill will want to get into SPS as well but not sure if the T5s will cut it. I also like the shimmer of LEDs

 

from reading the specs of M@rine_lover tank there tank is 2 foot cube like mine. Should i take what you recommended to M@rine_lover?

24" cube I would do something like this since you have T5s:

 

10x 3UP XTE NW combo

12x True Violet 60 degree

4x Turquoise 60 degree

4x Deep Red 60 degree

 

Then you just want to group the 4 types of LEDs in clusters
