The LED light panel was custom made by Tim (one of our awesome OpenAg engineers) and uses red/white/blue GE LED’s that are 2x more powerful. (OpenAg realizes getting the same LED’s they use is not easy and most users have hacked their PFC’s to use an off the shelf grow light panel. OpenAg is working on finding a light and supplier that fits their requirements and can be purchased online as a single unit.)
The updated software is the latest release of the openag_brain v1.0.0. It has several updates and many bug fixes.
We have done a test grow of basil using the PFC v2.1. Here is the test grow log with notes, problems, pictures and results.
If you have read this far and followed the test grow link, you will know that the PFC v2.1 is still very much a hands-on maker device. It is not a “plug in and forget” consumer appliance.
