PhytoMAX-4 LED Lights Will Give You Superior Yields
At 500 watts, the PhytoMAX-4 8S light delivers 1063 μmol/s of light, perfect for medium-size coverage areas.
PhytoMAX-4 lights are designed to grow the highest-quality and highest-quantity harvests. Rather than striving for the highest-possible photons per watt, PhytoMAX-4 is designed to give the highest yield per watt while maximizing potency roduction.
PhytoMAX-4 SP Features
Black Dog has been perfecting grow lights and supporting our customers since 2010- we're among the oldest LED grow light manufacturers still in existence.
Dimmable from 15% - 100% with industry-standard 0-10V dimming controllers.
PhytoMAX-4 increases efficiency and maximizes lifespan by actively cooling the LEDs. Cooler LEDs run more efficiently and have a longer lifespan, especially for the specialty UV and violet LEDs we use. While fans are a moving part, we've never had one fail in tens of thousands of lights over the past 13 years, plus our patented design includes multiple redundant fans. Even if one were to fail, your light will keep running just fine.
We utilize only the highest-quality parts and have been perfecting the PhytoMAX design for over 8 years- these lights are built to last!
Go BEYOND PAR with our Phyto-Genesis Spectrum
The Phyto-Genesis Spectrum has been finely-tuned to not just grow plants, but to grow more-compact, more-productive and higher-quality flowers, fruit and leaves. Unlike most LED grow lights that use white or white and red LEDs, we incorporate 8 different LED colors to target specific responses from the plants, known as photomorphogenesis.
Our spectrum triggers plants' hormonal response to different colors of light and the ratio of these colors to minimize stem growth while maximizing flower and fruit production. Compact, bushier plants are not only easier to work with but also maximize yield per square foot.
3% ultraviolet light (<400nm) mimics the sun's natural UV light, keeping plants bushier and more compact, more resistant to pathogens and insects, and producing more potency and pigments.
Violet light (400-450nm) better penetrates dense plant canopies to nourish lower leaves, allowing high-quality flowers and fruit to grow lower on the plant.
Unlike supplemental UV light bars, PhytoMAX-4 evenly distributes UV light across the entire growing area, and at a concentration that gives your plants the benefits of ultraviolet throughout the entire growing cycle, not just restricted to the last couple weeks of flower.
Blue light (450-480nm) triggers chlorophyll B photosynthesis more efficiently than green or yellow light, and helps keep leaves more compact for better canopy penetration.
Infrared / Far Red
Infrared / far red light (700-750nm) increases photosynthetic efficiency through the Emerson Effect. Too much can cause stem elongation but when paired with the right ratio of red and blue light as in the Phyto-Genesis Spectrum, it increases yields.
Red light (600-700nm) drives photosynthesis, but can also cause plants to elongate their stems if not matched with an appropriate amount of blue light.
Why include ultraviolet (UV) in the LED spectrum?
Ultraviolet (UV) light has a wavelength shorter than 400nm and contains more energy per photon than light in the 400-700nm Photosynthetic Active Radiation (PAR) region of the spectrum.
At Black Dog LED we believe in making lights that provide the best possible grow results, rather than lights that look good on paper. Ultraviolet light grows higher-quality plants and increases canopy penetration, so we include it in our spectrum.
UV light stimulates several different photomorphogenic responses in plants. Plants exposed to UV light create higher levels of natural compounds that growers are seeking. By including UV in our spectrum, we grow higher-quality plants with richer qualities of what you're growing the plants for.
UV grow lights for plants also help increase canopy penetration, allowing for more productive plants as well. Although UV light does not count toward PAR directly, it helps deliver more PAR-spectrum photons lower into the plant canopy.
PhytoMAX-4 SC & SX
The PhytoMAX-4 Series can also come in the SC and SX models which can handle up to 277 volts and 347 volts respectively. The only difference between the three models is the power cord and the voltage they can handle.
The SC and SX models have a locking, water-tight power cord and can handle being in greenhouse-like environments, unlike the SP model. Please contact us if you are interested in either of the SC or SX models.
