The All New Gavita Pro LED 1700e Is The Best Grow Light On The Market
The Gavita Pro 1700e LED Gen 2 Grow Light is everything you'd expect from a Gavita LED. Until now, cutting energy costs and delivering maximum light output have been opposing priorities for growers. This fixture solves that. Say hello to the Gavita 1700e. Developed by the leaders in horticultural lighting, this LED is powerful enough to deliver the same high-performance growers rely on while reducing energy and lifetime ownership costs.
The "Pro" in Gavita Pro 1700e LED really shines through. This is an incredibly powerful grow light and can be used in just about any application: commercial warehouses (vertical or horizontal), greenhouses, and home grows (rooms or tents).
Coverage area: Flowering footprint: 4'x4' to 5'x5' (16 to 25 sq ft), Vegetative footprint: 6'x6' to 7'x7' (36 to 49 sq ft)
Low heat, minimizes cooling and energy costs
The Gavita Pro 1700e produces almost no heat. The open bar design passively cools the system. The fixture consists of 8 LED light bars, and this open design prevents heat build-up over the canopy. This allows you to place it closer to your canopy than other lights, cut down cooling costs, and maintain a perfect grow environment.
The 1700 µmol/s fixture results in an impressive efficiency of 2.6 µmol/s per wat
Much more efficient than a traditional HPS
This Gavita LED is a lower wattage than you may think with just a 646 watt power draw. It can repalce a 1000 Watt HPS without sacraficing any light or quality. It can also be dimmed up to 50% witht any loss in efficiency.
By switching to the Gavita 1700e grow light, you can reduce HVAC costs by 30 - 40% when compared to an MH/HPS grow light.
*Gavita Pro 1700e with Botanicare Slide Bench System
The Gavita Pro is already the most efficient LED on the market, and also one of the most powerful. It produces 1700 µmol s-1 PAR and pulls 646 watts from the wall. It works incredibly well in commercial grows and greenhouses and carries a manufacturer's warranty of 5 years.
From a compliance standpoint, no other LED on the market can even compete. It features an IP66 Wet rating and is UL8800 compliant for use in wet environments - making it perfect for commercial growing environments. It is also FCC compliant, and ETL certified.
The Gavita Pro LED is composed of Philips Drivers, Samsung white LEDs, and Osram deep-red LEDs. This light is built to last, and by far the best commercial LED grow light.
Note: This fixture has 4 different power cords to choose from (sold separately)
- 120 Volt
- 208/240 Volt
- 277 Volt
- 277/400 Volt
Choose your desired voltage of power cord from the options at the top. All Gavita 1700 Power Cords are 8 ft. in length.
What changed between the Gavita 1700e and the 1650e?
While the Gavita 1650e LED was an incredible grow light, Gavita knew there was room for improvement. Seeking the very best in LED grow lighting, they improved upon this light with the 1700e.
In the gen 1 Gavita, the plexiglass around the light acted as a water catch, which would hold moisture or spills from above in racking systems. So, they removed this plexiglass. They also switched to the single fin vs a dual fin design, to eliminate an additional water catching point. This single fin is just as efficient, so you don't lose any power or performance.
Another huge difference is actually in the design of the wiring in the light. The Gavita 1650e has a top-exiting cord, which created 90-degree angles in the wiring of the lighting bars. This would occasionally cause certain parts of the light to not light up, due to the stress of the angling of the wires. So, the Gavita 1700e now features a side-exiting cord, so no drastic turns in the wiring.
The Gavita 1700e LED also brings new certifications to the table, such as an ETL listing, and a new IP66 rated housing which is completely enclosed. the communication connections are also IP rated, and the cables used are now RJ45 vs RJ 12/14.
There are also key differences in the adapter, as the first one was not ETL rated and the new one is. The mounting of the adapter is improved too, as the gen 2 adapter features hanging ears to make things easy. Furthermore, the "IN" and "OUT" communication ports have been moved to opposite ends of the fixture.
Another huge advantage is that cleaning the Gavita 1700e is easier than ever. You can literally spray down the fixture with a hose, as everything is completely sealed and safe.
Why Choose The Gavita 1700e LED Over The Competition?
We can make all sorts of claims about why the Gavita LED is so great, but how does it actually stack up against the competition? Let's compare it to the Fluence SPYDR 2i - the most similar competitor currently on the market.
In terms of LED diodes, the Gavita has 3264 white and 72 red diodes, compared to 2142 white and 84 red on the SPYDR. While both brands use the same, quality diodes, Gavita uses 49% more and doesn't drive the diodes nearly as hard. This maintains longer diode life with less color shifting, getting you further with your investment.
The Gavita 1700e LED is known for using the Philips Advance driver, whereas the SPYDR uses a cheaper, lesser-known driver. The extra money Gavita spends on these drivers shines through in their performance compared to the competition.
These two lights have very similar wattages, yet the Gavita produces a more efficient PAR Efficacy at 2.68 µmol/J compared to 2.56 µmol/J of the SPYDR. Furthermore, the 1700e produced an output of 1744 PPF, compared to just 1631 PPF on the SPYDR.
A few other advantages the Gavita 1700e has over the SPYDR is compatibility with popular Greenhouse Controllers, a high ambient temperature rating, and easy assembly and installation. If you were previously on the fence about which LED is right for you, hopefully, this helps you make your decision!

The Optimized Spectrum Of The Gavita Pro LED
Reliably sourced components including Philips AdvanceDrivers, Samsung white LEDs and Osram deep-red LEDs create improved performance. The Gavita 1700e gently drives LEDs to optimize fixture life and improve spectral output. The 8 passively cooled bars provide full-spectrum, broad-coverage light for full-term growth.
Our combination of white and red LEDs results in a relatively high ratio of blue light. Blue light keeps your crop compact in the vegetative stage and adds to an optimal morphogenesis and light interception by the plant. It maintains the photosynthetic system of the plant to optimize its photosynthetic potential and can shorten your flowering period. Blue light also triggers stomatal opening during the light period.
The 8-bar configuration allows you to mount this light source in low rooms, on vertical racks, over rolling benches or even in tents. For maximum uniformity, hang the fixture 24-36 inches from the crop.
The spread of red LEDs in the array guarantees a uniformly mixed spectrum on your crop at short distance. A full spectrum increases the quality of your crop.
Rest assured knowing that your plants are all getting the attention they deserve from this beast of a grow light. Its the most efficient commercial grow light in the industry for a reason.
IP66 wet rated and UL8800 compliant for use in wet environments which allows versatile placement in growing spaces.
Its IP66 wet rating provides complete protection from dust, oil, and water, allowing you to mount this light source in low rooms, on vertical racks, over rolling benches or even in tents.
Output & Efficiency
Operating at 645 watts with an output of 1700 µmol s-1, this fixture achieves an impressive efficacy of 2.6 µmol s-1 per watt. Eight passively cooled LED bars provide intense light coverage with no fans or moving parts—significantly reducing the number of possible fail points compared to other fixtures.
The high fixture efficiency of 2.6 μmol s-1 per Watt enables you to finally leap ahead in reducing your HVAC capacity by about 30-40% compared to regular open HPS/MH solutions. The high efficiency and low powered LED configuration with 8 LED bars reduce the temperature of the LEDs – increasing the output and improving their light maintenance.
With the same performance that makes Gavita the world’s leading horticultural lighting brand comes a new LED light fixture designed to deliver more usable energy to your plants while consuming less power.

Gavita Pro 1700e Gen 2 645 Watt LED Grow Light Reviews
- hands down the best
I can't even explain how much better my setup is with these over my older HPS setup. I am SO happy Gavita took their time to bring out a fantastic LED! Our yields and quality have gone up dramatically while lowering overhead costs
- long wait, but worth it
the demand for this LED is insane, but it worth waiting in line to get it if you have the time. Other good options are out there, but I'm a Gavita fan from the days I grew with the DE's, but I just can't spend that on the electricity these days. The best LED on the market hands down.
- Best service ever! Excellent products,
Ordered gorilla 5x5 package with gavita 1700e awesome set worth every penny, so happy 5 weeks in! The staff at hydro builders Is the best, yeah I could have purchased locally but went with hydro builders instead best price better service and superior products. You won’t be disappointed
- Great light
I have 18 grow facilities totaling over a million sq ft. I did a small run of 200 of the 1650e models. Brought down overall production cost by over 28 percent. Purchasing 18,000 of the new models in the next month.
- Make sure the power cord is on ur list
Absolutely love the light. It was recommended by a master grower I grew up with, I just got back into growing after a 5yr vacation. Plants love the light and responded well to full power when not having been subjected to that intense. I hung the light 5ft up as it is was really intense for my girls. 2 days later growth that was substantial. Left it at 5 for flower and yessir im getting the controller to dim and run my whole op with this. Super impressed! However to be honest i was very disappointed by having to buy my power cords. I thought i read there was a 6ft cord included. Im not a good reader but i thought i read that ppl were disappointed in the 6ft cord that came with it and had to upgrade to the 8ft. Again im not a good reader lol
- The light is perfect but the electric cord is bad
The only think is very bad is the cord the connection if you move the light up or down it will go off ease .Very delicate connection
- Fantastic Light
I use these in three facilities. We lowered production cost and increased potency.
- Best LED
If you have wanted to move to LED I think you should jump on it. This blows away my performance from the 1000w DE I had before. I made my money back after the first couple of runs. Highly recommended and quality is great
- Best light on the market
We have three facilities and this light increased production by 8% in each one!
- Even Better Than The 1650e
I was wondering why the 1650e was already being discontinued, well its because they had an even better performing LED being tested and manufactured. This LED has blown my mind. I love it! My plant love it! I'm excited to expand my space so i can outfit it with more! I'm glad Gavita took their time coming out with a solid LED instead of just bringing one out years ago because all other top manufacturers were.
