Ciao Topete, the approximate cost of light is 60, 65 euro + 15 euro of led driver (700 mA)

Ciao Christian

Ciao guys,
we calculate the consumption of the led light.

The image shows the working point of an LED (extract from Cree XP-G led datasheet). Each LED is powered by a constant current of 700mA. With this current, the voltage across an LED is equal (approximately) to 3.2 Volt.

The power consumed by each LED is given by:
P = I(current) x V(voltage) = 0.7(Ampere) x 3.2(Volt) = 2.24 Watt

The total power consumed by light is only:
Ptot = P x num.leds = 2.24 x 5 = 11.5 Watt

I leave you comments ...



Ciao ciao Christian

The pic. show clearly the rate of growth plant after pruning (1 May 2012)...

I'm very happy. I can say that the "led" experiment is successful!!

Your tank looks great. I've been searching for someone using LEDs on a nano planted tank. Not many out there. I also wanted to see what LEDs to use on a planted tank. I was worried XPGs you look to yellow and was out the colors of the fish, man was I wrong. I'm looking to setup a nano planted tank 10"x9"x9"H. Based on your tank I'm thinking of using 3 XPGs. Though I want to use 41deg. lenses like I'm using on my reef tank. Is there a reason why you used a 700mA driver instead of a 1000mA which is what I'm using on my XPGs.
