The Maximizer is a dimmable 8 COB (chip on board)that pulls 650 watts (peak)but can be dimmed to 200 watts (low)
The light penetration is between 12 and 24 inches through a dense canopy but the spectrum and intensity encourage a huge amount of lateral growth and bracnching.
Fruit quality is excellent and yield should be expected to be as high or higher than a single ended 1000 watt HPS light system.
Due to canopy density it is advised to remove sucker leaves (fan leaves).
Distance to canopy largely will control the speed at which plants grow vertically (too close and they will not grow up…)
