640W, 3-spectrum LED Grow Light
The demand among the home grow community for Fohse fixtures has been tremendous. Fohse now offers a powerful and efficient solution to all those who grow on their own. The A3i, the most powerful and efficient commercial LED grow light the world has ever seen, has been re-imagined for the home grow as The Aries.
PPE & Grow Light Efficiency
You’ll notice Fohse posts the efficacy performance of the Aries as a range. These figures represent the top and bottom ends of how well your Aries unit will convert electricity to usable photons. LEDs tend to operate more efficiently when operating below maximum output. The lowest PPE figure is representative of running the Aries at full power in the ‘Spring’ spectrum, while the highest figure is representative of running the Aries at 50% output in the ‘Autumn’ spectrum.
Unprecedented Canopy Penetration
Early generation LED lamps failed the cannabis industry due to low output + poor canopy penetration. The secret of the Aries' success starts with abundant PAR focused onto your canopy by polycarbonate focal lenses. Next, the Aries LED grow light deploys an advantage you won't find anywhere else—swiveling light bars to achieve maximum canopy penetration by cross illumination to neighboring grow plots.
Never Buy Another Bulb Again
Let’s be honest - bulb-style grow lights are a hazard. Burns, waste, breakage ... why subject your passion for growing to these hazards when a better option like the Aries is available? Buy right, buy once.
Bulbs Die Suddenly, LEDs Fade Away
Fohse's L90 and L70 figures come straight from the data sheets and stress-testing provided by our diode manufacturers. To put the L70 of the A3i into perspective, after switching to Fohse LED. Buy right, buy once. 110,000 hours of use the fixture’s output will have diminished to 3,360 μmol/s, which is still 68% MORE POWERFUL than a fresh-out-the-box 1000W DE HPS bulb. And just how long is 110,000 hours? If you run 12/12 cycles every day that’s 9,166 days ... 1,309 weeks ... 301 months ... 25.1 years of runtime and your system will still outperform an HPS system by almost double.
Make a Friend Out of Heat
Unlike obsolete plasma grow lights the Aries has no ‘Infrared Spike’ in its spectrum, meaning drastically less heat radiating down on your canopy.
Is Heat Harming Your Crop?
There’s no way around it: the ‘infrared spike’ with HID grow lights is damaging to your crop. While harm reduction methods do exists, you can eliminate it entirely by switching to the Aries by Fohse.
Dust Proof, Water Tight
Your grow environment isn’t the friendliest place for sensitive electronics. That’s why the Aries can withstand the intense conditions of your grow. It’s impervious to hitchhikers (dust, mites, aphids, spores). It can even withstand full submersion in 1 meter of water.
Ingress Protection testing really puts Fohse fixtures through the ringer - sandblasting, water spray, pressure washing, submersion, etc. Rest assured your A3i is well-protected from the hazards of your grow environment.
A Full Cycle Fixture
Fohse designed the Aries with three distinct spectral modes to suit each stage of your crop’s growth cycle from vegetative, to early flower, and finishing with late flower.
