Evening all, I have a random led question for you....

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to dim the HLG 100w plug and play? It's the 192pc board.(V1)

 

The website says it's a non dimmable design, but I was wondering if that was just because of the driver they supply? (Meanwell OWA-90U-36-P1M)

If so, could anyone point me in the right direction to find one... I have had a search around but couldn't find any info on anyone doing this, and the meanwell site confused the hell out of me! 

* am I correct in thinking I need the ELG-100-36a-3y ?

 

I''m a bit lost when it comes to electronics to be honest :blushing:

Thanks in advance

zabz

@zabz Yeah you need a new driver. 

 

ELG-100-36A type will be too much, you can use a HLG-80H-36a. Or you can use a ELG-100-36B type.

@diyleduk Thanks mate, and thanks for starting this thread, I thought it was very generous of you! It's nice to know there's someone around who knows what they're talking about :yep: 

 

The reason I want to dim it is to use it in a small veg space.

If I were to keep the driver outside and mount the board onto the ceiling of the (wooden) box, how much clearance do you think it needs? it doesn't use a heat sink, but the board gets pretty dam hot on top after 18hrs.

 

*I'll have cpu fans extracting from as high as possible, but I don't think there'll be room above...

@diyleduk hi mate love the insta page and website. Spot on. All the best with the business. 

Quick question about the red suppliment lights you recently posted about. 

Do you think it's possible to use the 2 strip suppliment lights on tiers of shelves and like finish plants with them? 

 

Ta mate
