The GN Telos range of LEDs is the result of years of dedication and hard work from UK based company, Grow Northern. Built to exacting standards, their robust design has been proven time and time again to produce dense, abundant crops with a very low power draw.
The Telos 6 Pro only consumes 175w but has a huge output of 2.4μmol per watt and 420 PPF. It features industry leading Osram diodes for unbeatable performance. These diodes are made up of around a 50/50 mix of white and red light which deliver a full spectrum light output perfect for all stages of plant growth. The Telos 6 Pro will easily outperform a 250w HPS light and even some 400w and is the ultimate choice for growing in smaller spaces whilst maximising yields.
All units have a 5 year warranty are rated IP66 waterproof and dustproof so you can rest assured they will stand up to the toughest grow room conditions. Each component has been meticulously sourced and tested in the UK.
The industry leading driver remains extremely cool during operation and requires no fans in order to do so making it completely silent during operation. It will efficiently drive the diodes for around 85000 hours with very little degradation.
Now you can take control of your grow room even further with Telos Mesh! This brand new tech allows you to precisely control a vast number of Telos LEDs securely and wirelessly from your smartphone!
What Is Mesh?
The new Mesh technology from Telos takes lighting control to new heights. Supplied as standard on all of our new units (and also available as an easy to install upgrade for existing owners of the standard 'Pro' model), the Mesh driver allows you to control 1000s of Telos units from your smartphone. This means that unlike other lighting brands on the market you no longer need to purchase a separate controller. What's more as everything is controlled via Bluetooth you don't even need wires!
- Completely secure, end-to-end encrypted Bluetooth network connectivity. Once you connect your device the units will no longer broadcast the network making you completely invisible to anyone searching.
- Schedule your lights on/off times all from the app and without the need for contactors or timers.
- Sunrise/sunset mode to turn your lights on/off and gradually increase or decrease the power.
- Group multiple lights together and assign specific settings to them.
- Select the precise PPF output of your lights without the need for a quantum meter via the app as well as wattage.
- RTC module allows your lights to hold their time and schedule for 24 hours without power.
How To Use The GN Telos 6 Pro Mesh LED Grow Light
Since the original GN Telos 0006 was created there have been various changes made to the unit until its current form; the Telos 6 Pro Mesh. One of the most noticeable being the brightness and coverage of light. The new Osram diodes dramatically increase brightness and PAR output from the original model as well as also running cooler. An update to the lenses also means the units now deploy a wider beam angle than before which is almost close to 100 degrees. This allows the unit to still be mounted at the same height but a better and wider coverage is achieved.
The GN Telos 6 will adequately cover areas of between 0.6m² and 0.75m², however it can be used in up to a 0.9m² area very effectively. The light coverage makes it an ideal lighting solution for the BudBox Pro Medium Tent however for those with low height the the BudBox Pro Intermediate Tent is a great option. Many growers often choose to run two or more, side by side. In which case a larger tent will be required. Please check out our range of Grow Tents to find the perfect solution for your grow space.
Telos recommend a light height from the canopy of around 60-80cm during flowering. Please remember this is only a guide. Generally, plants can take time to adjust to LED lights. When you first place your plants under your LED lights, we recommend either turning down the power or placing your lights at a slightly higher distance from the light to the top of the canopy. Keep a close eye on your plants and over the next few days the light height can be slowly reduced, or the power can be slowly increased. If your plants show any sign of stress e.g. wilting or leaf discolouring you should increase the height accordingly.
The GN Telos lights come with a robust hanging kit with durable metal eyelets on each end to ensure secure hanging. If you need to adjust the height of your lights then we recommend to purchase a pair of Rope Ratchet Hangers.
Why Choose LED?
The units boast a 85,000 hour lifespan and on a 12/12 cycle you can achieve over 10 years of continuous use from these innovative units. You will not need to change a single lamp over this time period. Unlike HPS lights, there is very little degradation overtime, this means that not only will you not have to physically change bulbs, but your diodes will still be producing near on the same output, year in, year out, just like they did when new, whilst only degrading around 1-3% per year. LED lighting solutions can potentially save 40% on electricity and studies indicate that LED-lit canopies can generate more yield per kWh. With studies showing growers using LED lighting may experience yield increases and changes in cannabinoid and terpene profiles, leading to more consistent medicinal product profiles from harvest to harvest.
