The differences between the Zeus Lumatek 2.3,2.6, PRO, 2.9, we explain
In this article, we will explain the differences between the different versions of the Zeus from Lumatek. To best illustrate our point, we will take the Zeus 600W product range as an example.
The Lumatek Zeus 600W which is the standard version of the Zeus 600W range is a multi-bar LED lighting system producing a PPF of 1380 µmol / s and an efficiency of 2.3 µmol / J for a maximum consumption of 600W .
The difference between the Zeus 600W is the Zeus 600W PRO is the production of PPF and µmol / J which increases by 17.39% for the PPF (1620 PPF) and an increase of 0.4 µmol / J (2.7 µmol / J). This will allow better results to be obtained for identical consumption of the two products.
This year Lumatek released two new versions, therefore the Zeus 600W PRO 2.9 and the Zeus 600W 2.6. These are upgraded versions of the two products presented earlier (Zeus 600W is the Zeus 600W PRO).
But what is the difference with the new versions ?
The difference is the same as between the standard version and the PRO version.
We're going to have an increase in performance, so we're going to go from a PPF of 1380 µmol / s and an efficiency of 2.3 µmol / J on a standard version to a PPF of 1570 µmol / s and an efficiency of 2.6 µmol / J on the Zeus 600W 2.6, ie an increase of 13.77% for the PPFs and an increase of 0.1 µmol / J.
This is exactly the same difference between the Zeus 600W PRO and the Zeus 600W PRO 2.9. It is the production of PPF and µmol / J which increases by 9.26%% for PPF and an increase of 0.2 µmol / J.
But where does this difference come from ?
The difference actually lies in the quality of the diodes and the efficiency (PPF / PAR). Removing the acrylic cover and using silicone glue in its place, along with the aluminum bottom part, is the reason why the PPF (Photosynthetic Photon Flux) is higher in the new version of Zeus.
What's the point ?
The point of taking a new version is to get better results with better components, without consuming more than another version.
