Magnus ML-270 Standard White
The Magnus ML-270 Standard White is the result or 14 years of product development in professional horticulture. This Full Cycle LED-grow light is manufactured predominantly with a view to heavy duty use in commercial crop cultivation. Obviously this does not imply that the ML-270 Standard White would not be suitable for the serious amateur grower. On the contrary.
The ML-270 Standard White is equipped with two COB-LEDs. The COB-technology makes it possible to reduce the number of electronic parts in a LED grow light to a minimum, as a result of which highly efficient energy consumption (or, conversely, an extremely high light yield) is achieved. COB-technology is considered the most powerful and most efficient LED-technology currently present. In addition, the compact design of a COB-LED and the huge quantity of constituent light diodes, makes much more accurate adjustment of a specific light spectrum possible.
Far Red dimmer
The ML-270 Standard White is fitted with a Far Red dimmer that the quantity of Far Red light in the light spectrum can be altered with. Far Red is the specific red light share accountable for a number of interesting changes during the life of a plant. Firstly, the quantity of Far Red received by a plant determines the moment at which it changes from the growing phase into the flowering phase. Manipulation of the quantity of Far Red during the growing phase thus enables you to influence the moment of that transition. Additionally, Far Red influences the duration of bud and flower formation. Manipulation of the quantity of Far Red during the flowering phase thus makes it possible to influence the number of buds, as well as the compactness of your flowers.
Standard White spectrum
The Full Cycle spectrum of the Magnus ML-270 Standard White consists of a ingenious combination of blue (growth) and red (flowering light that also the ML-270 PRO is equipped with. For the ML-270 Standard White, however, this spectrum was supplemented with yellow and green light. The latter ensures that the radiated light is not blue/purple, yet white. For many growers, white light is preferable to a purple/blue shimmering light, because white light is much more pleasant for the eyes and, besides, the crop will look much more ‘natural’ under white light. The addition of the yellow and green light incidentally does have an adverse effect on the growth and flowering strength of the original Full Cycle spectrum. The green-yellow light share does not affect the performance of your plants, but needs to be generated. This is done at the expense of the red and blue light.
All Magnus models were fitted with the meanwhile renowned 120° parabolic lens. This crystal clear glass lens guarantees an extremely uniform light distribution across the culture surface and between the leaves. Another feature of the parabolic lens is that all wave lengths that the light used consists of, are allowed to pass through evenly. Measurement of the radiated light will also show that even at a distance of 40 cm from the lamp, the spectrum of the ML-270 Standard White corresponds exactly with the Magnus-graph displayed below this article.
The aluminium housing contains components of the highest quality, which are cooled passively, so without the use of a fan. This makes the Magnus ML-270 Standard White a noiseless, exceptionally reliable and fault-free LED grow light. As such, it is no issue for Magnus to offer a full three year warranty on every ML-270 Standard White.
