Sansi LED Floodlight

Sansi sent me their 50 watt LED floodlight for evaluation. This light isn’t designed for growing purposes, but I am testing it for growing.

Although marketed as 50 watts, actual power draw was less than that, around 40 watts. It has 3500 lumens and color temp is 5700K. The PAR readings I took show a really high level very close to the light but dissipates quickly over a few inches distance.

The Sansi 35 watt LED light bulb is a new product from Sansi. It isn’t advertised as a grow light but has all the right specs to be considered useful as one. It produces 3500 lumens in the 5000K color spectrum. It screws into a standard light socket with the E26 base. The lights are focused at a 120-degree angle. The CRI is 80.

Bench tests

Sansi sent me one of these to try myself and I got the following results when testing.

Actual power draw measured with my Kill-a-watt tester  31 watts.

PPFD measured with the Hydrofarm PAR meter

I ran the 15-watt and 30-watt Sansi LEDs for 30 days and recorded a time-lapse. The 15-watt light seemed to perform much better than the 30 watt version (actual 23 watts). I think it’s because the LEDs on the 15-watt light are more focused, whereas the ones on the larger version are diffused.

Sansi sent me one each of their 15w and 30w mixed full spectrum grow lights. These lights appear white when on, instead of purple. I tested the power draw and PAR readings of each one. They are currently offering a 20% discount using the code LIKEASUN. The offer is good through 5/31/18. These can be purchased at Amazon.

Power

I plugged these into my kill a watt tester. The 15w pulled 15.3 watts. The 30w only pulled 23.7 watts.

PAR readings

At 12″, both lights were around 260-270μmol/m2/s. At half that distance the 30w model was a little stronger than the 15w at 1100 μmol/m2/s and 1000 μmol/m2/s respectively. The light spread on the 15w model is more focused and defined. Whereas the light from the 30w is more diffused.

Grow test

I have the lights setup over established Holy Basil plants. The nutrients I am using are Masterblend, Epsom Salt, and Calcium nitrate. The strength is around 650 ppm/1.3 EC. The pH is 6.3.
