The Lumatek 30W UV Supplemental Light LED Bar offers a Light Spectrum addition for growers who are looking to improve their crop’s quality through UV-B [280-315 nm] AND UV-A [315-400 nm] radiation doses to your plants during flower based on scientific support.
Designed to be used alongside your existing light system, but has hooks made to fit directly on the Lumatek Zeus LED fixtures. The UV bars require their own independent power cable unit and can also be daisy-chainable. These are purchases separately.
Daisy chain cable will allow you to easily connect several fixtures. To ensure unit performance, this LED bar has a single input and output socket for the Power Cable or Daisy Chain Cable depending on the use of that bar. For this reason, the Power (4m) and Daisy Chain (1.5m) cables are sold separately.
Why Use UVA+UVB?
UV photons, like for humans, can be damaging, and as a response, plants trigger their self-defence mode so they can adapt to harsher conditions.
Scientific studies have proven that small amounts of UV can have big effects! Notably, something called SECONDARY METABOLITES - these are flavour compounds, which will see an increase in taste, flavour, and smell as well as increasing plant durability.
What happens is the plants develop thicker leaves in response to help them deal with the high energy, and develop an increase in oil production to serve as protection to help them tolerate the stressful conditions as a response you'll see darker purplish colouration and the development of these secondary metabolites.
A single fixture can provide 2.2 kJ/day (12 hours) of UV-B energy and 518 kJ/day (12 hours) of UV-A output. This translates to a fixture output of 100 mW of UV-B and 12000 mW UVA. Lumatek ensures that this fixture does not produce UV-C radiation. Integrate this technology together with the Lumatek Zeus LED Range frames and follow the directives on our Grow Light Strategies.
Another benefit of UV is to help to control mould formation with gentle UV-B doses and reduce the need for chemical interventions by the effect of UV-A.
How To Use
Put them on a separate timer to your grow lights, and we recommend:
1. Start with 2 hours a day split over 2 x 1-hour intervals (within your light-on period).
2. Increase exposure by 15mins every TWO days and check for signs of burning on leaf tips - this is when you've hit "critical mass" and find the sweet spot for the amount your plant can absorb
Note: The amount of UV will vary from 2 to 6 hours a day in grow tents and up to 12 hours in a bigger room.
Use throughout the entire flowering period.
WARNING: Do not be working under these lights when they're on. Time it so you're in the room when they're off, or suit up..and cover your eyes!!
The Lumatek 30W UV Supplemental LED Bar was designed to fit directly into the Zeus fixtures. To make sure you achieve the best light spread over the canopy, we recommend:
Integrate a minimum of 2 units of 30W UV Supplemental Light LED Bar, with:
- ZEUS 465W 2.6 | 1.2 x 1.2 m footprint
- ZEUS 600W 2.6 | 1.4 x 1.4 m footprint
- ZEUS 465W PRO 2.9 | 1.2 x 1.2 m footprint
- ZEUS 600W PRO 2.9 | 1.4 x 1.4 m footprint
- ZEUS 1000W Xtreme CO2 | 1.5 x 1.5 m footprint w/ CO2 Supplement
Integrate a minimum 3 units of 30W UV Supplemental Light LED Bar, with:
- ZEUS 1000W PRO | 1.5 x 2.0 m footprint
If you notice plant damage, we recommend increasing the distance between the fixture and canopy or decreasing the UV light output delivered to your plants by reducing the photoperiodic time.
