The most powerful LED grow light on the market! The 1000w Zeus Xtreme produces a jaw-dropping PPF level of 2925 µmol/s; that's the equivalent of almost three 600w HID lamps! It is capable of illuminating a larger grow space than the other Zeus models, or with CO2 supplementation can be used over a smaller grow space to push plant yields beyond what you thought was possible. As with all Zeus models it provides a high quality, full spectrum light thanks to the premium diodes and is suitable for use in both vegetative and flowering stages.
Why Choose A Lumatek LED Grow Light?
Through a sheer amount of research and development along with significant advances in technology, Lumatek have produced a range of extremely high quality LEDs. Lumatek LEDs boast a huge lifespan of around 60,000 hours, on a 12/12 cycle you can achieve over 13 years of use from these innovative units! However it gets better, as during this time you will not even need to change a single lamp over this time period. Unlike HPS lights, there is very little degradation over time, 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 and only degrading around 1-3% per year. Due to he very high levels of PPF, Lumatek LED solutions can potentially save 40% on electricity bills as they will generate more yield per kWh. This coupled with the fact that you no longer need to purchase new lamps results in a sizeable saving over a period of time and a very good return on investment.
LED also provide a much broader spectrum of light compared to HPS lighting. This is particularly important when it comes to producing not only heavy yielding plants but high quality ones. Studies have shown that plants grown under LED lighting using high quality, mixed-spectrum diodes such as those found in Lumatek units will regularly produce plants with better terpene profiles, greater aromas and enhanced colours than those grown under HPS lighting.
LEDs produce far less heat than the equivalent wattage HID lamp, this is particularly useful for growers as it enables them to use smaller ventilation in their grow rooms to control the environmental temperature and humidity. This helps to lower the expense of kitting out a grow room with larger kit and further saves on electricity costs.
How To Use The Lumatek Zeus 1000w Xtreme LED Grow Light
The 1000w Zeus Xtreme is a very powerful LED light and has been designed to produce the very biggest of yields and growth from a 1.5m x 1.5m grow space. However in order to use it within this area it is essential to supplement your room with CO2 otherwise your plants simply will not be able to 'keep up' with it. When used correctly, the supplemental use of CO2 in your growing environment can dramatically improve the quality and abundance of your yield. In general, a good rule is that once you exceed 1000 µmol/s/m2 PPFD levels, you should be 1:1 with CO2 PPM – up to 1500. So, at max PPFD = 1500 µmol/s/m2, CO2 would be 1500 PPM (a little lower, 1400 PPM may be the safest to start).
The use of CO2 with this lighting fixture is not compulsory and for those that do not wish to do so the light can be positioned further from the canopy, thus creating a larger footprint and less intensity in a smaller area. If you choose to use this method then the 1000w Xtreme will effectively cover a 1.8m x 1.8m.
As with all Zeus models, the 1000w Xtreme is very low profile and once plants are established can be positioned near to the canopy and is therefore capable of being hung in rooms with low ceilings. It is also suitable for use in a grow tent and for those running a single light setup with CO2 we suggest to pair it with either the BudBox Pro XL Plus Tent or BudBox Pro XL Plus HL Tent. For those who do not wish to supplement with CO2 then the BudBox Pro Titan 1 Tent or BudBox Pro Titan 1 HL Tent would be your best option. Where possible we always recommend using the taller ‘HL’ tents as this gives more flexibility in terms of how you can grow your plants as well as generally having that bit more space, which always helps. For those choosing to run 2 or more lights in a tent then a larger model will be required, please check out our range of Grow Tents to find the perfect solution for your grow space.
The Lumatek Zeus 1000w creates light that is very close to natural sunlight. Each Lumatek Zeus comes with a dimmer which allows you to control the output settings to 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%. This makes it possible to use the Zeus from propagation all the way to harvest by simply adjusting the power and height it is hung at. As a general rule for those running CO2 with more established plants, Lumatek recommend a hanging height of 30-50cm from the canopy, for younger or more sensitive plants this gap should be increased as well as a lower power setting used. For younger plants we always suggest to start around 25-50% power with the light around 80cm from the canopy. Monitor your plants over a few days and slowly increase the power and/or lower the light as needed. For flowering plants you can usually start at around 75% power and increase to 100% shortly afterwards. For propagation or very young plants we would always suggest to start on 25% and around 80-100cm from the canopy. If you are choosing not to use CO2 then we recommend adding 30-50cm on top of the above measurements as a good starting point for choosing your hanging height.
The new Lumatek Zeus 1000w 2.9 line has been built using top quality Lumatek drivers and the latest generation higher efficiency top bin LEDs from Lumileds and Osram, generating a full-spectrum light source ideal for veg and flowering cycles. The latest version now features the Clear Glue Protection Cover on the LED bars. Unlike over models which use a plastic cover on the diodes, the clear glue creates a strong seal over the diodes resulting in a higher light transmittance of 99%, extended lifetime of the diodes with corrosion resistance and makes them waterproof to IP65 rating. The only maintenance needed is to simply clean the bars with with a wet cotton cloth.
Up to 100 Lumatek Zeus LEDs can be linked together using the Daisy Chain Control Cable (sold separately), by doing so allows all the units to be controlled from a single dimmer. Great for larger rooms. If you want to take things to the next level you can use the Lumatek Control Panel Plus as your lighting controller. This innovative product not only gives a greater level of control over your light output but also has the capabilities to turn your lights on and off without the need for external timers and contactors, dim your lights if your room exceeds a set temperature and control two rooms from a single controller to name just a few of its features!
Unlike other brands on the market, each of the light bars work independently, meaning should one of them fail, the others will continue to work meaning no interruption to your growing cycle. The intelligent driver senses how many bars are present and adjusts accordingly to continue providing your plants with a consistent wattage.
