The new and improved 465w Zeus Compact Pro gets the 2.9 treatment. It now produces a huge PPF of 1353 µmol/s meaning it can easily produce better results than a 600w HPS light as well as similar wattage LED units too! Thanks to the superior build quality and components used, the 465w Zeus provides unbeatable performance throughout the entire growth cycle (vegetative and flowering stages) and is perfect for growers who have slightly smaller spaces which cannot house it's big brother the Zeus 600w Pro 2.9 Grow Light.
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 465w Pro 2.9 LED Grow Light
The Lumatek Zeus 465w is the perfect lighting solution for a 1m x 1m - 1.2m x 1.2m grow space. It is very low profile and once plants are established can be hung very close to canopy making it a great choice for those growing in a tent or even multi-layer rooms. For single light setups we recommend pairing it with either the BudBox Pro Large Tent, BudBox Pro XL Tent or BudBox Pro XL HL Tent. 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 465w Pro 2.9 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 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.
The new Lumatek Zeus Pro 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.
