I’ve been fielding a lot of questions about SolStrips so the folks at Overgrow have allowed me to host this discussion thread to help answer them.
Let this thread be the place where questions and announcements about SolStrip products are posted and answered. Hopefully that will keep the amount of commercial discussion in other areas of the site to a minimum. So please keep posting to and starting new project and grow threads with your SolStrip arrays, and let the community of LED growers here participate freely, and we will all keep learning.
I will also use this thread as a sort of evolving FAQ on SolStrip products, designs and technologies. You’ll be able to find information and plans for building several SolStrip lamp designs, plus technical specifications, tips and tricks for tweaking your system.
So, first things first: SolStrip.com
This is the place to go to browse for SolStrips, SolStix ,and SolSheet lamps and kits. Check stock, build your wish list, and order and track purchases. PayPal and all major credit cards accepted. Free shipping on orders over $150, generous return policies on lamps and unopened kits.
What is a SolStrip?
A SolStrip is an LED light emitter designed with dozens of small diodes arranged on a long, copper-cored, aluminum-backed circuit board. The strips are the first rigid LED strips designed especially for growers, using the highest quality, most efficient mid-power diode available today: Samsung’s LM561C chip. The SolStrip delivers 9000 lumens/m2 of full spectrum white light in photosynthetic spectral ranges from 2700K to 5700K, while using only 36-48 watts: twice the efficiency of HID lamps. SolStrips are made to be fully interchangeable, so they may be mixed together to create specific spectral mixes of light using different color temperatures together.
What is a SolSheet?
SolSheets are complete lamps and kits designed with SolStrips using a common commercial baking sheet. SolSheets feature 100-250 true watts of efficient LED light in a fully contained, water-resistant, low profile housing which uses just 3 inches of vertical space, making it perfect for small and height-restricted spaces. SolSheets come in two sizes, the 13” x 18”, 100-150 watt SolSheet Original, and the 18” x 26”, 200-250 watt SolSheet X.
What are SolStix?
SolStix are components of an open rail-style lamp design using SolStrips and the custom SolSink fitted heat sink. SolSinks are custom-sized and tapped to fit SolStrips, allowing them to be mounted with simple M3 screws. SolStix include additional tapped mounting holes at each end to allow them to be easily attached to 1” angle aluminum rails to create simple, elegant light arrays that can be custom sized and expanded to fit the precise needs of the grower and grow space.
Is that it?
Oh no. We are actively developing the SolStrip product line and expect several exciting announcements in the near future. Stay tuned here and at the Photon blog, or sign up for our email alerts.
