Kind LED Grow Lights has announced the X², a game-changing innovation in commercial grow technology. Developed as the perfect solution to vertical racking and overhead grow operations, the X² was specifically designed for close proximity growing, capitalizing on valuable tiered growing space while maintaining a large coverage footprint and even PPFD output. This means increased harvest weight and quality, and unmatched potential for financial returns on your harvest.
The revolutionary concentric square design and unique diode arrangement of the X² definitively rejects the dated concepts and common shortcomings of popular LED fixtures, offering a more even PPFD across the canopy than the ubiquitous parallel bar design seen in commercial fixtures. This ensures you never sacrifice an inch of potential growth across the canopy or have to deal with any troublesome hotspots putting your harvest at risk, and ultimately increases production and overall plant health and making the X² an ideal solution for any large-scale commercial grow operation.
Every component of the X² has been over-engineered to withstand the rigors of commercial grow environments. Heat is potentially disastrous to electronic components, and the X²’s substantial heatsink means components remain cool, ensuring a safe grow environment and extending the lifespan of your fixture long beyond the competitors.
Taking cues from other award-winning lights in the Kind LED family, the X² features a 3-Channel fully customizable spectrum, enabling growers to match the needs of any plant at any stage of growth. This means only one fixture is needed to get the job done, from seed to harvest. When paired with a compatible controller, more than 500 X² fixtures can be controlled simultaneously.
“We are thrilled with the new X² grow light,” said Kind LED COO Nick Schweitzer. “It’s designed for the unforgiving environments of commercial grow facilities, and incorporates features never before seen in commercial fixtures. This is a light that has not only been designed to produce incredible harvests, but has been built to last. We are a ‘plant first’ company and every decision we made for the design and function of this fixture was, and is, for the maximum benefit of the plant. That is something that cannot be said by many other lighting manufacturers, and something of which we are very proud.”
“It is refreshing to have a viable targeted full-spectrum commercial fixture back on a market that’s become overrun with the same White Light LEDs being sold by so many different manufacturers,” added Kind LED CEO Rory Kagan. “The shortcomings of those lights are obvious. Their spectrums include a wasteful overabundance of yellow and green light while leaving plants deficient in the vital wavelengths needed for optimized flowering. The X² will be a game-changer and set the new standard for what a commercial grow light should, and needs to be.”
Kind LED’s new X² fixture has a true PPF of 1650 μmol/sec with almost every photon absorbed by the plant, and an efficacy of 2.22 μmol/J. It features 384 OSRAM OSLON® SSL diodes and a max wattage of 750w, with a lifetime of over 75,000 hours and a 5-year warranty. Like all Kind LED products, this fixture is backed by industry-leading customer service. The X² will be available July 7th for a retail price of $1,695.
