California Lightworks SolarSystem 550

California Lightworks’ SolarSystem 550 has been engineered to include the newest generation of high-efficiency LEDs and the most versatile control system available today. This high-performance commercial indoor LED lighting system is a great choice whether you want a single light for your grow tent or several hundred lights for a large commercial grow.

The SolarSystem 550 LED grow light addresses the problems with high-intensity discharge lighting by offering programmable spectrum control over multiple wavelengths. The SS 550 operates at 50-60 Hz only draws a maximum current of 3.3A @ 120 V, 1.65 A @ 240 V. Its energy consumption ranges from 0 - 400 watts, far exceeding the efficiency of traditional UVB grow lights.

California Lightworks’ full spectrum LED plant grow lights are chosen by professionals and home growers alike for their durability and energy efficiency. In addition, these high performance grow light systems deliver even lighting over a flowering coverage footprint of 4’ x 4’, and vegging coverage of 6’ x 6’. Home growers and commercial operations alike will benefit from this broad-spectrum growl light system that encourages photosynthesis and vigorous plant growth.

Powerful enough for veg or bloom, the Solar System 1100 requires the fully programmable spectrum control with the Solar System Controller (below).

Note: The SolarSystem controller works only with the California LightWorks SolarSystem 1100, 550, and 275. It can control an unlimited number of lights from a single controller. It allows automated programming for spectrum control, 24-hour timer, and day/week/month calendar.

    Basic Spectrum Mixes for the SolarSystem 550

    This table illustrates the basic spectrum mixes for various growth stages for plants in the flowering stage. These spectrum mixes were arrived upon after 8 years of research and experience with the California Lightworks growers network and are supported by university studies on varying spectrum's effects on plant morphology.

    In general, blue light is essential for vegetative growth to produce lush growth and bushy plants. Red tends to make plants stretch in the veg stage but is important for high yields in fruit or flowering plants. The SolarSystem 550 allows you to dial in exactly the spectrum mix you need for any stage of plant growth.
