Newbie - telos info please

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

hello. This is my first post here. Currently growing under HPS but was struggling with heat this summer so I’ve decided to upgrade the lights to LEDs. The GN telos 8s look to be doing some nice results. Can anyone tell me the footprint the 0008 has compared to a normal 600w hps parabolic? Also am I able to connect them together daisy chain? Thanks

Thanks for the reply Stoney. In your opinion are they comparable to HPS? I’ve been doing a lot of research into LEDs but there seems to be a lot of marketing hype around them. What type of HPS would one Telos 0008 compare to? Thanks bud

What I hear from other people here, it would compare to 400W HPS at least

Back in the days I used to grow with 400w HPS and I got to say Telos 0008 feels the same as 400w HPS to me with just a difference that it doesn't heat up the room. Sure they give higher lumen ratings for many HPS bulbs than Telos 0008 technical documents states but trick is there that you can run Telos much closer to your plants than HPS without the IR heat messing up your leaves.

I'd say Telos 0008 compares to 400w HPS but still blows it out of the water with its versatility with other parameters important to quality growing and efficiency with the electricity

I use a telos 008 and it came highly recommended from one or two experienced grower. Telos 008 will easy do 3/4 plants in a 1.2 by 1.2 tent check out GardenOfAutos on IG for some good results.

As for hight over canopy all that info can be found on their website.. But for seedlings you should start at around 100cm drop to about 80cm after couple weeks and then go from there as the girls mature.
