VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light

Last updated: July 14, 2018 at 20:45 pm

If you have a limited indoor plant grow space under 3×3 you will love the VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light. High electric bills and heat issues are in the rear-view mirror with this baby. It uses just 285 Watts of electricity and produces only 25% of the heat generated by standard HIP systems. That’s just 50% of the electricity you would expect to use on a LED grow light that provides this much intensity. The par value is extremely hight while providing a full indoor lighting spectrum that is perfect for cannabis plants.

You can save even more electricity when you are sprouting and in the vegetative cycle because of led technology you can switch the power level on this led panel to provide less intensity when it isn’t needed and when you are ready to grow some bug fat buds you can switch the unit over to “bloom” for full intensity light.

How is the VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band led lights different from the viparspectra rreflectorseries?

The VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light system provides a few upgrades over the VIPARSPECTRA Reflector lights systems. The VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light comes with 3 power settings that can be adjusted with the simple flip of a switch whereas most systems only comes with one or two settings.

This grow light system also has a revolutionary optical lens which is designed to penetrate light into your foliage twice as deep as other systems of this power. When looking at the front of the VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band led grow light panels you will notice that it contains aluminum heat sinks down beside the LED drivers instead of on the top of the unit. This change allows the system to draw air up from your crops, through the light system to cool it and then out the top exhaust vents. It’s a really smart idea that reduces the heat generated by this high intensity LED grow light system even more than other LED grow lights of equal power.

What can the VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band led lights do?

The VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light can produce a PAR rating at its center of 680. This is near the top of the PAR scale so you know your plants can photosynthesize every bit of light produced by this unit. When compared to HPS lights which only reach a par rating of about 550. In general, a PAR if 600 is optimal for growing cannabis so the power for this unit is going to do an amazing job of growing your plants right to the harvesting stage. This light unit is perfect for a grow tent or a closet grow.

Advantages of the VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 versus HID lights

Growers who have had experience with traditional incandescent led lights systems know the pitfalls of HID lights. The massive energy costs, the need to switch bulbs at different stages of your grow, the need to replace these lamps and the fact that your grow area is 75% hotter than with an LED system all make the choice an easy one.

The VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light has many advantages over HID lights. For example, the light is 75% cooler than and HID system as well as the fact that these LEDs can last a whopping 100,000 hours. You won’t ever have to change a bulb again.

When looking at the face of the VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light you will notice the three cooling fans that draw air in from your plant area and exhaust it out the sides of the unit. This also reduces its temperature even more. The Light intensity produced by the PAR600 can seriously damage your eyes if you look at it but strangely you can touch the unit without burning yourself.

5-Watt LED drivers to make the difference

The incredibly powerful 5-Watt LED drivers are made by reputable well-known manufactures Bridgelux and Epiled. The sheer intensity of the 5-Watt LEDs is focused straight down at your plants and if not positioned correctly could easily burn your leaves. It’s a smart idea to follow the manuals recommended growth distances to make sure you don’t overdue the light on your plants.

It doesn’t matter where you live in the world, the VIPARSPECTRA PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light comes with dual voltages from 100 to 240V. The kit also comes with an easy to use hanging kit that is a snap to assemble.

The Viparspectra Reflectorseries PAR600 600W 12-band LED Grow Light weighs 13.7 pounds and measures 14.1” long by 11.8” wide by 3.5” tall. There are 120 5-watt LEDs total. Although the specs given by VIPARSPECTRA don’t include data on how many of the LEDs are ultraviolet or infrared, based on their spectral analysis and the photos provided of the light, it appears that the PAR600 must include at least a small number of UV and IR LEDs.
