I was requested to build a light by a fellow OG'er so I've been ordering parts over the past few weeks to get him one up and running. Still waiting on a few parts and designing as I go.
I always aim to frame in aluminium. This will be my first enclosed build. 2 lengths of aluminium U channel 600mm x (4inch x 3inch)
1/8 thick x 600x300mm aluminium sheet x 2 (for top and bottom.
Not thought about the sides too much yet but I'll do something nice got a couple ideas in mind.
Hardware going in:
Citizen citiled cluo36-1206s (80cri) 58.8w a chip
4 x 2700k
4 x 3500k
(I have to order more 3500k's as I blew one on my own light pulling a negative wire too hard) my bad
Meanwell hlg185h-c700a constant current driver.
Vf 36v a cob. (36x8cobs=288)×0.7=201.6w (minus a 6 percent driver loss)
Am3 heatsinks. (These have the largest flattest mounting points I've seen. So should be quite durable in different applications)
A few pics of how im seeing it going together. (I am still 3 heatsinks short but the light was originally to be a 2700k bloom boost bar for 5 2700k chips)
@Gaz29 this will be your place to keep up to date with how your builds going bro. What's going in it and how it's going together.
Anyone else is more than welcome along for the ride. Observations. Advice and ideas all taken on board
