The Growers Choice + TSL ROI-E720 LED grow light is designed for commercial growing operations of high value crops, but can just as easily be used in smaller operations and grow tents. The ROI-E720 LED grow light is the latest offering from Growers Choice taking the place of the extremely popular ROI-E680. The 720 increases the wattage from 680 to 720 and includes newer improvements to LED technology. The ROI can also be used in the BOOST mode to increase the PPF of 1870 umol/s to 2050 umol/s (approximately 10%).
ROI-E720 LED Controllability + Growers Choice Master Controller
The Growers Choice ROI-E720 LED is controllable with Growers Choice Master Controller and is compatible with most other 0-10v digital lighting controllers. Using the Growers Choice Master Controller, growers can set the ROI-E720 LED to turn off and on at desired times based on a schedule, program sunrise/sunset settings, program dimming options and set protective fail safes to dim or turn off fixtures in the event of excessive environment temperatures, such as HVAC, AC or exhaust fan failure.
This Growers Choice dual-channel controller allows daisy chaining up to 100 fixtures per zone, with 2 zones meaning growers can control up to 200 fixtures with one simple interface. The Growers Choice Master Controller comes with: A. Master controller B. Power adaptor(DC5V/2000mA) C. (2x) 5M Temperature sensor cord D. (2x) Controller wire(5m), RJ9(4P4C) —RJ14(6P4C) E.

WHY WOULD I USE THE GROWERS CHOICE ROI-E680 INSTEAD OF THE ROI-E720 LED GROW LIGHT?
Both the Growers Choice ROI-E680 and ROI-E720 are great, state-of-the-art LED grow lights. The ROI-E720 is designed to be slightly more of a replacement for 1000w HPS lights in indoor grow rooms with taller ceilings. If you're growing in a room with lower ceiling height, or in a multi-tiered fashion, it may make sense to use the ROI-E680 instead so you can get closer to the plants without overpowering them with intensity.
CAN YOU GET A LED LIGHT REBATE WITH GROWERS CHOICE LEDS?
Yes, Growers Choice LEDs including the 420, 680 and 720 are all DLC listed LED light fixtures meaning they qualify for energy rebates from most local energy companies. This can often mean a rebate of 25-60% of your total fixture cost could be rebated back to you.
DLC (Design Lights Consortium) Listed Light and Qualified Fixtures
DLC stands for Design Lights Consortium, a group that certifies light efficiency to be used in energy rebates around the world. The DLC independently certifies the quality and performance of lights, most notably LED grow lights used in commercial growing operations. DLC is used to make sure that lights adhere to the specifications that are advertised. If we say a grow light operates at 2.8 umol/J efficiency and 95 CRI (color rendering index), who is to say we are not lying? Same for Power factor, Kevlin, THD and more. Unfortunately a great number of companies mislead customers on efficacy data. This problem is why the DLC was started and why you should be paying attention, even if you are not eligible for energy rebates from your local energy company.
An example of a use case for getting a DLC qualified fixture: If you have an existing or new growing operation considering a purchase of 100 HPS 1000w grow light fixtures, you can reach out to your local energy company telling them you're considering buying LEDs instead of continuing to use or replacing your 1000w HPS lights. Most of the time, energy companies will give you 20-60% of your more efficient fixture cost in teh form of a rebate against your future energy bill. For example, if you were getting LED fixtures that cost $1,000 each and the energy company gave you a 60% rebate, they would effectively give you $600 back in credits for each fixture you buy bringing your net cost of the fixture down to $400. For the majority of energy companies, they require DLC qualified fixtures in order to be eligible for a rebate.
