First and foremost greeting, as I am new to the forum please excuse me if this topic has already been covered I am slowly working my way through the material on the forum.
I am looking to design a LED panel which will fit in the FCV2.0. Before I started the design I was wondering if I could get a little information about what the light requirements are. From reviewing the BOM and the incumbent LEDs (GE tetra power) are 12VDC (I will have to do some more research but I am assuming the constant current driver is included in their package) and your main power supply is a 24VDC; again I would assume the LEDS must be in series parallel configuration.
Here are my questions in no particular order:
What is the power budget for the LEDs?
Are the red, blue, and white channels individually controlled, and if so how (PWM or constant current dimming)?
What is the target PPFD? (Assume around 2.0umol/J)
Is there a particular red to blue ratio you are look to attain?
Are you open to adding additional spectrums out of the PAR range UV or ~720nm red.
How much do the GE LEDs cost?
Once armed with this data I will mock up a quick design, if done right it should reduce the BOM cost for the LEDs, and make it a heck of alot easier to install.
