Migro's list of tested lighting products

Thought i would share this with you guys. If you have seen My List on these forums that compare the products and technologies using radiometric data that was available. This is a testimony to my work in assessing lighting products and technologies and how they compare. 

This data from migro wont match my data as the testing parameters are without integrating spheres but with typical growing systems (tent). So naturally the photon values are lower due to increased environmental losses. But what is available is the differences between products which line up with my own assessments made so far. 

 

Top grow light charts:

Make/Model Efficiency (PPFD/Watt)

Fluence Spydrx 2.17

Optic 1 2.04

MIGRO system 2

HLG QB120 4K 1.92

One thing to note, is that most of the LED products that have a higher efficiency than a 600w or 1000w DE gas discharge, are low wattage. The only LED products that can compare to gas discharge in both photon flux (total power) and photon efficiency are the fluence, nextlight and california lightworks. Which ironically are all three of the same products we recommend on our products guide. 😉

Very cool. However, I just got the HLG550 V2 and it’s 2.45 PPFD per watt or 2.5 μmol/joule and it’s not on the list. I believe it’s the most efficient light on the market right now.
