SANlight Q6W Gen 2 245w LED
The SANlight Q6W Gen 2 245w LED Grow Light uses Osram 2mm2 chip technology to provide a full broadband light spectrum distribution which will still run at 90% after a lifetime of 100,000 hours.
This impressive workhorse is highly suited for use in hydroponic growing spaces and tents. This product is ready to dim, which means growers can control the light intensity using a separate dimmer at all stages of their plants’ development.
SANlight is well aware that growing conditions change over time and that plants may need more light at a later stage. This product’s lights offer Ready-to-Boost functionality, allowing you an extra 10% of light output.

How does it work?
This LED uses secondary optic technology to ensure that 95% of photons go onto your plants and not onto the sidewalls of your growing space. It provides a full light spectrum during the vegetative and flowering stages of your plant’s life cycle, resulting in large yields at harvest.
Growers may gain these impressive results by using only a tiny proportion of the power usually necessary to achieve this with high-pressure sodium lights. The LED modules each feature aluminium heat sinks, which passively cool the diodes, even though these may be running at high temperatures. This feature also helps save on energy costs and gives you additional savings on your extraction costs because of the smaller amount of heat generated.
How to Use?
The SANlight Q6W works perfectly well in a 1m2 grow tent. It has three eyelets for easy hanging at each end and central eyelets for hanging flat. You may also position it at a slight slant by using side eyelets which may be helpful in an arrangement when using several lights.
SANlight recommends that you hang the unit no lower than 350mm, which is probably the optimum height for a tent measuring 0.8m2. But for a 1m2 tent, it’s recommended that you go for about 450mm, and higher for younger plants.
