  • Photobio LED testing at Independent Testing Laboratories, Inc. in Colorado.

    At Hydrofarm, we value third party testing on our high performance horticultural light fixtures. The performance of our Phantom Photobio LED fixture line has been verified and validated by the leader in independent testing, Independent Testing Laboratories, Inc. (ITL). ITL is truly an independent test lab. It does not have ties to lighting manufacturers or specifying bodies. ITL has a reputation of producing test reports of the highest quality and accuracy. We think it’s important to give our customers independently confirmed performance data.

  • Phantom Photobio•MX

    Extraordinary performance. Extreme efficiency. Exacting design.

    The PHOTOBIO•MX changes everything. We took a step back, evaluated all the fixtures on the market, and then set out to do things entirely different. The result is a 680W fixture delivering 15% more light to your canopy, using 35% less power than a 1000W DE fixture. Increase yields while driving down operational cost. The spectrums were developed in a private research laboratory to drive flower yield and elicit market desirable traits in short day resin producing crops.

    PHOTOBIO•MX abandons the bar style concept in favor of a more efficient contiguous circuit board to deliver unparalleled PPFD uniformity to the canopy. Extensive thermal modeling and testing was conducted to ensure diodes remain well below operating temperature to maintain consistent light output and yields. 0-10V PHOTO•LOC Light Output Control allows you to precisely regulate the amount of light delivered to your plant canopy when paired with the available Autopilot PX Series controller.

    PHOTOBIO•MX’s design is multilayer rack centric, providing the ability to double or triple your canopy square footage within your existing structures footprint. The driver is mounted below the fixture to maximize vertical grow space and has the ability to be remotely mounted.

    PHOTOBIO•MX is designed for the serious horticultural professional looking to increase business sustainability by reducing power consumption while simultaneously improving crop performance and yield.

  • Active Air Heavy-Duty Floor and Pedestal Fans

    The Active Air Heavy Duty Floor and Pedestal Fans provides superior air circulation with excellent durability. Each unit has been manufactured to ensure safety, reliability, and ease of use. Its motors are redesigned for stronger performance and are built for years of continuous use. They come equipped with industrial strength aluminum fan blades and operates at three speeds (Pedestal fans feature a smooth side-to-side oscillation). The heavy duty pedestal fans are adjustable in height and utilizes a strong heavy base for stability. The floor fans feature whisper-quiet operation and heavy-duty aluminum blades, they are ideal for recirculating lower-lying CO2 in the grow room up through the entire plant canopy or to nurture younger plants during the vegetative stage. Both styles are tough and will easily handle even the harshest grow room environments.
    Strong motor for continuous 24/7 use

    High RPMs
    Durable and reliable
    Three speeds
