Serious About Tech
Despite a keen focus on affordability, Exolux haven’t cut any corners when it comes to the technology employed by the Sirius.
The headline components are the premium quality Samsung 301H and Osram 660NM Red LED chips, which combine to produce the full spectrum lighting needed to successfully steer your plants through veg and flowering. In total, it contains 2220 LEDs - that equates to 370 LEDs across each of the 6 bars. Since more plant usable light is also available thanks to this type of product, you’ll also get better fruits and flowers compared to HPS alternatives.
Passively cooled with zero moving parts, the Exolux Pro Sirius promises to give you years of reliable, maintenance-free operation. At the bare minimum, you can expect 50,000 hours of use! Just remember that natural convection takes heat up and away from the top of LED units – so ensure there’s a 2.5cm gap between the driver and the roof of your grow room/tent to prolong the life of the product.
A fan controller should be high on your list of priorities when you’ve embraced LED technology because fans often won’t need to work as hard throughout the day, resulting in a quieter operating grow room. The reduced extraction requirements due to less heat mean you can effectively add CO2 into your grow room and reap the rewards – both ExHale Bags and TNB Canisters represent terrific options for first timers. Start off with the light on the 250W output situated 130-140cm above your rooted cuttings/seedlings, progressing to the 630W output and a distance of 50cm from the plant canopy in flowering.
