    Acan Color

    I have seen this happen with magnesium levels being too high. But generally the color comes back pretty quick when the magnesium dosage decreases.

    Wiring apex to TRC drivers

    Thanks guys that really helps. Unfortunately for me, electrical stuff does not come easy. Common AC input wires go to the large terminal on your 2 prong plug as well, right? So my white or COM wire goes to the larger terminal and my black or LINE wire goes to my smaller terminal

    Wiring apex to TRC drivers

    So I am a bit confused on how to connect the TRC drivers (thomas research) to the apex cable. I've got the yellow, purple, and green wires. What do I hook the yellow wire to? Yellow= 10V ??? on same orange white? Purple= 0-10 input (orange/white on ethernet) green= ground (green on ethernet)

    DIY LEDs - The write-up

    So you would run your XP-Es at 700mA (I will) and your XP-Gs at 1A(I think I will)?

    DIY LEDs - The write-up

    For XP-Gs, whites, is 1000mA the optimal setting or would it still be 700mA? Do you see a large difference in par levels between 700-1000mA?

    What resistors will I need?

    It will actually be easier for me to just use the 4 drivers I have instead of trying to cram everything into 3? Driver 1: 24 RB @ 750mA- (this is optimal right?) Driver 2:10 CW+2 NW @ 1000mA to 1500mA (1kmA is optimal?) Driver 3: 4 NW+4 WW+ 4 CB@ 1000mA (not optimal for CB but im ok with...

    What resistors will I need?

    My plan is to do this: 24 RB XP-Es on 1 MeanWell 60-48D. Two separate strings (wizard says 10ohm resistors) 16 LEDs total- 6 XP-E RB, 10 XP-E CB. Two separate strings (wizard says 33ohm) 20 LEDs total- 10 XP-GCW, 6 XP-G NW, & 4 XP-G WW (wizard says 18 ohm) are these correct? I don't...

    LEDs over 40"x17" LPS dominated Tank

    I did a calculation that says I could do 16 led's together, but thats at 3.0... With XP-Es, would I be able to string 16 together on one string?

    LEDs over 40"x17" LPS dominated Tank

    Oh another question, if the info is the same and the vf tests out so that the strings are about even, does it matter if I use the same amount of one color vs the other string. IE: can I use 6 cool white, 3 neutral, and 1 warm white on one string, then 4 cool white, 3 neutral, and 3 warm white...

    LEDs over 40"x17" LPS dominated Tank

    Would this work? http://cgi.ebay.com/LOT-10pcs-LINE-FUSE-HOLDERS-FU-1A-250V-FAST-ACTION-/150295909278?pt=BI_Electrical_Equipment_Tools&hash=item22fe55939e According to cree, the typical output for both RB and B leds is 3.2 vf, max is 3.9. So I could have LEDs anywhere in between this and I...

    LEDs over 40"x17" LPS dominated Tank

    Going over the Summary with your info in it kcress: How would one string more than 12 leds in one string? Would this not cause an issue? Are you saying it is less dangerous than parallel? I am using 60-48D drivers. The string I am worried about has 20 LEDs: 10 Cool White XP-G 6 Nuetral...

    LEDs over 40"x17" LPS dominated Tank

    Thanks k! Is there a thread where someone has done this process and explained how they did either by written or video instructions? Here is what I know: Each string should have as near as possible vF. I should have a fuse in place for each string (but which...
