Key Attributes

  • Innovative Samsung LM301H EVO Chip Technology The Samsung LM301H EVO is the pinnacle in horticultural lighting diodes, offering unmatched efficiency with 3.14 μmol/j per diode. These chips emit a spectrum particularly beneficial for plant growth, supporting both structural and nutritional development. The FC 4800-EVO, thanks to these chips, excels in stimulating photosynthesis, fostering the production of bioactive substances, improving plant robustness, and conserving energy.

  • Cutting-edge Samsung LED Grow Light The Mars Hydro FC 4800 harnesses the power of Samsung LM301H EVO diodes, setting a new standard in LED grow lighting. Consuming 480W, this unit's photosynthetic photon efficacy is an extraordinary 2.85 μmol/j, making it an exemplary choice for nurturing indoor plants. It's equally effective for personal and commercial cultivation, notably in vertical farming environments.

  • Superior PPFD and Uniform Illumination The FC 4800-EVO shines with a high PPFD of up to 1434 μmol/m²/s, ideal for commercial growers and enhancing flowering stages for higher-quality and more abundant harvests. The strategically placed LEDs ensure a balanced light spread, fostering even growth and preventing intense concentration in the middle.

  • Full Spectrum with Enhanced Red and Blue Light The FC 4800-EVO's spectrum is rich in blue and red light, supplemented with adequate green light for optimal plant development. Blue light encourages vegetative growth and phytochemical buildup, while the red light hastens flowering and bud quality. Green light is included to ensure comprehensive plant growth and deeper light penetration.

  • Smart FC4800 in the Mars Hydro APP Ecosystem Connect the smart FC4800 to the Mars Hydro APP for remote control and data management via your smartphone or tablet. The system uses OTA technology for efficient and secure data transfer. This feature is invaluable for those with limited time for plant care or commercial operators managing multiple lights.

  • Auto-Dimming with Precision Control The FC4800's auto-dimming function can be precisely set down to the minute, ensuring light intensity is perfectly aligned with your growing schedules. This includes a Sunrise & Sunset Simulation feature, replicating natural light cycles for optimal growth conditions.

  • Efficient Heat Dissipation The wave-shaped heat sink design and multi-bar layout enable fast heat dispersion, maintaining consistent light performance and avoiding overheating.
