The BSF Orion Chip On Board LED Grow Lights outperforms 1000w DE HPS for PAR output while consuming 50% less power, as well as packing many cutting edge features. Based on an USA made aluminum chassis, cut and formed in Fayetteville, NC, the Orion uses 3 Luminus CXM32 Gen 4 COB Arrays, 4000k Balanced/90CRI, which deliver Full Spectrum PAR light with peaks at both Blue and Red wavelengths. The light from the COBs is focused through large diameter, 120 Degree lenses for even coverage and excellent spread. The lenses collimate the light much more than bare LEDs like many competitors giving them great throw and canopy penetration, as well as sealing the LEDs from environmental exposure. At 18" the Orion produces an astounding 2377 umols of Photosynthetic Active Radiation, almost double many other high end LED horticulture lights.
The wiring harness channeling power to the Orion is IP67 sealed and custom made in Winston-Salem, NC, using tough, automotive grade connectors. In the entire construction of the light there is not one solder point to fail. Heat management is performed by the chassis as well as 3 oversized Passive Heat Sinks, using a chimney effect to pull heat out of the LED area. It's so good at moving heat that the COBs run below 60 degrees Celsius, which is 25 degrees C lower than Luminus' own efficiency crossover point data.
Powering the Orion is a custom designed Driver made by Autec, a California based company, pulling 500 real Watts from the wall, and controlled by a Digitally Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) control system. This system eliminates costly high amperage timer relays, as the intensity and schedule of the lights is Solid State digitally controlled. It can be controlled from the growers phone, and is monitor-able and controllable from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. It can also be integrated into control and data systems from Agrilogix; all factors of a controlled environment grow can be run by one system, for the ultimate in automation and data collection for your grow.
On top of all the great PAR light and advanced controls it provides, it's also built like a Mack truck, and designed to last. BSF provides a 5 Year Warranty to back that up, although at 365 day a year grow schedules the LED arrays will power through 8-10 years minimum service life, and the drivers 16-20 years. Featuring a fully modular construction, the entire light can be taken apart for cleaning and service (if ever needed) with just 2 Allen wrenches.
The Orion is project based, custom made for each grow, using remote driver locating to reduce grow area heat and reduce costly electrical build out. BSF Orion grows great plants while saving tons of money; hand built in Sanford, NC, USA, these hot rod grow lights will provide years of reliable service and the PAR you need for your high value, controlled environment crops.
