Please note that these are individual LED grow panels that must be wired to a driver and mounted to a heatsink or frame. All parts needed can be supplied by Grow Lights Australia and are available as bundled kits or individual parts. Please see our Products Page for the full range.
UV – 3000K
The High Light “UV” board is a true full-spectrum LED grow light. With output from 400nm to 800nm, it is one of the only horticultural LED panels with significant UV and Far Red light on a single channel (one driver).
This LED grow light is not only one of the most efficient in its class, it has a very high Colour Rendering Index (CRI94). This allows plants to be seen in their “true light”, making it easier for growers to spot nutrient deficiencies and other issues.
The large LED board design coupled with 450 of the most efficient mid-power LEDs gives a very even spread of light. These grow lights have excellent heat management that isn’t found on other horticultural LED boards or strips. It allows each board to be run at up to 150W without a heatsink, or 225W with a matching heatsink.
The 2:1 ratio means each LED board can be mounted side-by-side to form a perfect square, or end-to-end for vertical lighting systems (see How Many Boards?).
The addition of the Sunlike CRI 95 LED with its 415nm “UV pump” not only makes this a true full-spectrum board, it provides a small amount of UVA and a noticeable amount of near-UV (400nm-430nm) not found in common “blue pump” LEDs and other single-channel boards.
The small amount of UV can run continuously during growth or bloom, and produces a mild stress response in the plant which stimulates essential oils (terpenes) and active ingredients. Yield studies and terpene tests back this.
Nichia’s Optisolis 2700K LED not only has an extremely high CRI of 98, it adds a significant amount of Red (600-650nm), Deep Red (650-700nm) and Far Red (700+nm) light to the board that boosts yields and reduces flowering times.
The final part of this three-LED board is Nichia’s 757 V3-F1 series, which is claimed to be the most efficient 3030 LED on the market. We chose CRI90 2700K diodes for their added red and quantum efficiency (2.75umol/j at 55% efficiency). They power 70% of the board and lift these boards to an overall efficiency of 2.47 umol/j at 1.5A.
These LED boards have a high Yield Photon Flux Density (YPFD) ratio to PPFD compared to other LED grow lights and can be used for growth and bloom. However, High Lights are primarily designed as fruiting and flowering boards with high amounts of red and UV spectra targetting yield, flavonoids and essential oil production (terpenes).

Grow Lights Australia is an official Mean Well reseller. We can supply any Mean Well driver with full Australian warranty for some of the cheapest prices available. All Australian drivers come with a 1.8m lead and Australian mains plug.
The full Mean Well LED catalogue can be found here under “Products > LED Driver”: www.meanwell.com
Please contact us if you have any questions about driver options.
Please also note that High Light boards must not be driven higher than 225W each when used with a matching heatsink, or 150W each without a heatsink. If you plan to use a driver that can exceed this wattage, you must appropriately dim it.
