LED Grow Light with Multiple LED Drivers?

2 posts in this topic

I am building a custom grow light with wavelength (nm) specific and temperature (K) specific LED lights.

 

Some cobs are 40w, another 120w, another 700w.

 

1 cob, for example, is 7800ma (34-36v), another 1200ma(30-32v), another 3400ma(34-36v).

 

How do I wire up multiple drivers to power the light as one unit?

 

For example is it simply all drivers in parallel -   powerIn--+Driver--+Driver--+Driver--+Driver--powerOut

with each driver running it's given lights in parallel? i.e. --/+Driver--+Light--+Light--/+Driver--

 

Sorry for the poor analogy I am not an electrician or physicist.

Yes RedBarn, but you can use same driver with same leds that have similar current and can be with different voltages, but final voltage doesn't have to be higher than driver Vmax out. Hope you get this lamp done

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
