SANlight Q-Series

Highest efficient led grow light system for indoor growing

Flexible – Performance-Oriented – Future-Proof

The 2nd generation of the Q-series was developed to live-up to our reputation as the technological market leader and to extend that lead. For you as a user, this means maximum flexibility with the best system efficiency and usability.

Each led grow light from the Q-Series consists of one or several light modules. These light modules have implemented the newest Osram 2mm2 Chip technology, which enables the generation of an optimized broadband light spectrum with an efficacy of 2,7µmol/J.

The secondary optics which guides 95% from all emitted photons directly to the cultivating area, protects the Led Chips from dust and dirt additionally. Dirt can be removed easily, and the light output maintains.

The optimised heat sink cools down the led chip to temperatures below 70°C and connects light engine and power distribution.

We give you the options,…

The Q-series models are designed so that the right solution is available for any mounting situation. For classic cultivation areas we offer an ECO solution or an EXPERT setup. That means you choose between maximum energy savings and cost efficiency, or maximum yield.

Options such as power boost or dimmer allow you to expand your system‘s range of performance or adapt it to new conditions. Every light in the Q-series is prepared for this, READY-TO-DIM and READY-TO-BOOST.

Of course, the lights can be daisy-chained to each other. Several lights can be powered by a single plug socket.

Each Q-series light can be kept state of the art cost effectively and while conserving resources simply by replacing the light modules. They are upgradable.

PMMA secondary optics – The best protection

Contamination on the LEDs reduces the light output of your light more than the chip ageing. The light output of lights whose LEDs are not protected by a cover noticeably declines after just a few months of use, and they cannot be cleaned, or only cleaned with major difficulty. The LEDs in the SANlight Q-series are protected from contamination by secondary optics. The material can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Light output is maintained.


90° light control – No photon is wasted

Every LED available on the market is defined by its emission characteristics. If an LED chip is described as having e.g. a 120° beam angle, this means that 50% of the light output is emitted at this angle.
The remaining 50% light output goes partially unused, or never reaches your plants. With the secondary optics developed by us, more than 95% of the LED chip photons are captured and directed to the plant.


Maximum light output – 2mm² LED chip technology

By using this high-power technology in all SANlight Q-series models, the efficiency of the conversion of electrical energy into light is redefined. For example, one Q-series module achieves an efficiency of 2.7 μmol/J for a broadband white light spectrum. In addition, the LEDs used are significantly less sensitive to environmental influences, such as sulphur and moisture, than LEDs of mid-power technology. Lifetimes > 100,000hrs are no problem for a SANlight.


Passive cooling

The large-dimensioned aluminium heat sink keeps the LED chip temperature in the cool range even at high ambient temperatures. This improves the efficiency and reliability of the system, even in the case of heavy soiling and harsh environments.



All Q-series models have an interface that allows the connection of different systems for dimming and controlling the light. In addition, a certificated SANlight partner can boost the light output from the light by 10% via this interface.

Prepared for the future…

Ready to Dimm

All Q-Series Gen2 models are ready-todimm. This means that you can equip the lights subsequently with a dimmer. This is simply plugged into the slot provided on the lamp.

The simplest dimmer variant is the M-Dim. You connect the dimmer module to your light and can then dim each individual light via a magnetic switch. In addition, you can activate a sunrise simulation.
No communication via a network, simple to use, cost-effective and reliable.

Bluetooth Dimmer
The Bluetooth dimmer is also simply plugged into the light. You connect to your illumination system through your smart device (mobile phone, tablet, etc.). All lights can be addressed together(cluster) or each light separately. Functions such as simple dimming, daytime-dependent dimming, etc. can be set via the app. Easy to use and inexpensive installation for large systems.

Ready to Boost

If you, as the owner of a model of the Q-Series Gen2, need more power, for example, because your growing conditions are changing (larger growing cabinet, etc.), a SANlight authorised dealer
can boost the light. This means you get 10% more light output.

The lamp can be kept state of the art with the possibility of an upgrade. Your official SANlight dealer can easily replace the light modules with the latest generation of modules. This offers a cost-effective
and not least resource-saving alternative to a new purchase.

We Have The Solution,
You Have The Choice

For standardised cultivation areas we offer an ECO setup as well as an EXPERT setup. You decide what is most important to you…

ECO Setup

In the design of these setups, we have taken care to achieve the same yield as with corresponding sodium vapour lamps while minimising power consumption. An average 600W sodium vapour lamp emits about 840μmol/s. An area of e.g. 1.44m² is thus exposed to 580μmol/m²/s.
A SANlight Q4WL Gen2 emits 416μmol/s. If 2 units are used on the same area (1.44 m²), this system achieves an illumination density of 580 μmol/m²/s. The same yields with better quality can be expected
and you save about 50% on energy costs. In terms of handling, these systems are forgiving and easy, because the plants are not driven to their limits.

Eco Setup Overview

  • Minimum power consumption, with similar yield to a high pressure sodium lamp
  • Low acquisition costs
  • Forgiving
  • No dimmer needed

Expert Setup

The focus here is clearly on maximising harvest. While with a 600W sodium vapour lamp 840μmol/s photons illuminate your plants, with 2 Q5W units, a photon flux of 1025μmol/s is generated. This means that the illumination density is 25% higher. Nevertheless, even with the Expert setup, you can calculate an energy saving of about 35%. With appropriate gardening skills, the yields will be better both qualitatively and quantitatively. The intense light drives the plants to their limits and requires proper handling by the gardener. We recommend using this system with dimming, and only applying the
full performance of your system in the last few weeks.

Expert Setup Overview

  • Maximise your harvest in quality and quantity
  • Higher acquisition costs
  • Photosynthesis at the limit
  • Dimmer recommended

The SANlight Q-Series boosts…

  • The quality of your crop
  • The quantity of your crop
  • homogeneity and Quality of your crop over the cultivation area
  • your cultivation area (usage in multilayer systems)
  • your flexibility (usable as main light source or as additional light source)
  • the productivity of your company

The SANlight Q-Series reduces…

  • your energy costs
  • your costs for maintanance
  • temperature inside your cultivation room
  • your risk
  • water consumption of plants
  • time to harvest


Georg Müller Ideengärtnerei Müller

Zusammenfassend ist meine Erkenntnis, dass der Einsatz von diesen LED Leuchten dem Kultivateur Lichtbedienungen schafft, die bisher in den „dunklen Monaten“ nicht möglich waren. Der Praxistest hat gezeigt, dass diese LED-Leuchten die vorhandenen Dampflampen nicht nur ohne Nachteile ersetzen, sondern auch noch ganz neue Möglichkeiten schaffen können.

Wir kultivieren in unserer Gärtnerei eine Vielzahl von Kulturen, auch solche die selten in unseren Breiten angebaut werden. Für viele dieser Kulturen werden wir in Zukunft LED Licht einsetzen, um Qualität und Blühzeitpunkt positiv zu beeinflussen. Auch Argumente wie bessere Lichtverteilung und weniger Beschattung durch schlanke Lampenbauweise sprechen eindeutig für diese LED-Lampen.
