Do not know why you are so offensive ... big staff ect ...What kind of lamp I shoul place there in you oppinion ?
 
This are a low budget DIY LED (Silver canister = passive heatsink)

Chip Bought in China
1 Chip has 5 channel of 20 Watt. Each Channel can be controled individually by a Reef computer. I use the GHl Profilux 3.1ex N.
I will use 10 Units LED Lamps so I will have 1 Kilo Energy consumption. Because of the sunlight (picture of the terasse) I think it will be enough.

So each Chip has
100 Watt
36 Volt
700-1200 mA
5 Cannel with flolliwing colors
14000 K
430 nm
10000 K
560nm


I tried yesterday the settings and have problem
Dimming is reverse. 100% dimming down, 0% dimming up
Also the Meanwell is getting hot.
