Made to optimize yields, the PhytoMAX-2 sets a new norm for power and performance. With 60% more light at the same wattage, the production of PhytoMAX-2 is the greatest breakthrough the growing world has ever seen.
Black Dog LED has provided the most powerful, reliable, and truly full-spectrum line of LED rising lights (365-750nm, UV to NIR) since the beginning of the industry!
The new custom housing is designed to better spread light without a light-removing glass cover and to better dissipate heat with new powerful and quieter fans.
Black Dog LED PhytoMAX-2 only uses state-of-the-art and state-of-the-art premium glass lens LEDs to offer their newly updated patented full-cycle "Phyto-Genesis Spectrum™."
Black Dog LED PhytoMAX-2 600 Actual Wattage and HID Equivalent
The PhytoMax-2 600 typically absorbs 630 watts and is equal in output to the "1000 watt" lights of other manufacturers. The PhyoMax-2 600 is a brand new light and is easily equivalent to a 1000 watt HID device.
Since Black Dog lights do not have a customizable range or even different vegetation and bloom modes, they consume 630 watts, no matter the growing period.
Black Dog LED PhytoMAX-2 600 Grow Light Spectrum
Black Dog LEDs feature their Phyto-Genesis SpectrumTM, developed after more than 6 years of intensive testing. Includes light from 365 nm to 750 nm. This means that it has all the wavelengths from UV-A to IR—basically every color of light plants required at any stage of growth.
This range does not include any UV-B light, but a few LED lights do (and they often include it not as an LED, but as a fluorescent bulb). It's simple enough to buy a separate fluorescent bulb if you want your plants to be exposed to UVB light.
Black Dog lights do not have different vegetation and bloom modes. Switching from one continuum to another in the center of development causes growth to slow. The shift in light shocks the plants and they stop growing for up to two weeks. This occurs when you change the wavelength of the LED light or when you turn from the metal halide to the HPS.
In order to avoid growth-stalling, Black Dog's Phyto-Genesis SpectrumTM was engineered to function equally well during vegetation or flowering. The only downside is that the light uses maximum power all the time, even if your plants don't need that much power.
Black Dog LED PhytoMAX-2 600 PAR and Area Coverage
Black Dog doesn't offer PAR scores for their lights and PAR values tend to be misleading and do not provide an accurate image of the ability of light to grow plants. They do give a value of 961 umol per second for the total photon flux which is a more precise indicator of the power of the light in the coverage area.
Black Dog fixtures spread their light much more equally in the coverage area, so while you get less power in the middle than other lamps, you get more power outside the coverage area and more average power overall.
As for the size of their coverage area, the Black Dog LED PhytoMAX-2 600 light will give you 5 by 5-foot coverage during flowering and 6.5 by 6.5-foot coverage during vegetation. Most 1000 watt LED lights will bloom 4 by 4 areas so that the light is stronger, and provides very even coverage.
This light has a much smaller difference in intensity. Plants on the outside are receiving almost as much light as those in the middle. You're growing much more and you don't need to rotate your plants as much. You should also prevent hot spots and leaf-burn.
Black Dogs use only 5-watt LEDs in their lamps, which means they have the power to penetrate deep into the canopy, much like HPS light. The PhytoMAX-2 600 provides the best combination of coverage and canopy penetration.
Black Dog LED PhytoMAX-2 600 LED Configuration and Type
Black Dog uses all 5-watt LEDs, and this light has a total of 252 of them. They use the top brand of LEDs available for each particular wavelength. It's the 5-watt LEDs that make Black Dog lights more powerful and effective. These LEDs are intense and penetrate as deeply into the canopy as the HID light. Like most LED lamps, Black Dog LEDs are rated at 50,000+ hours of use.
Black Dog LED PhytoMAX-2 600 Heat Management
This is Black Dog's greatest benefit, as their advanced heat management enables them to stock their fixtures with powerful 5-watt LEDs and not suffer the consequences of their increased heat production which is shortened LED lifespan and of course, the need to cool your growing room.
Black Dog uses larger fixtures and the largest heat sinks in the industry to cope with the heat from 5-watt LEDs. They pair those with powerful long-term fans rated at 70,000+ hours.
What it all comes down to is a 2148 BTU heat output which is low compared to other grow lights. Low heat output increases the life of the LEDs and means that you don't have to spend as much on cooling your growing space. And the fans are also ultra-quiet.
