Difference of Budmaster Units

Well as you can see all of our ranges of Budmaster LED Grow Lights look almost exactly the same and we are always being asked  ‘what is the difference between the different models, XG, OD?’.

The differences are not in the way the units look so much as in the output power and longevity of leds, we maintain the same modular design for all current and future Budmaster lights.

This allows us to remain flexible for the past, present and future with our lights and whatever incarnations of Budmaster occur in the future you can rest assured they will all be built with backwards compatibility in mind so you can upgrade from your XG to a COB or QD.

Budmaster LED the Yield Masters

Budmaster G.O.D Series

Our G.O.D series uses the Osram SSL80 horticultural family of led and the light engine PCB is built in the UK by Marl International who have over 45 years of experience with LED technology and the latest SMT equipment to guarantee a practically perfect pcb every time.

  1. 25 x Osram SSL80 led on the board.
  2. 100,000 hrs lifespan instead of the typical 30,000 - 50,000.
  3. Flawless fitting with solder pads eliminates thermal spikes.
  4. Minimum output drop over time, less than 1% per year.
  5. Superior high end Osram diodes for up to 200% more par than 600w HPS.
  6. More exact horticultural wavelengths and bandwidths for greater efficiency.
 
Budmaster OD Series

Our OD series uses the Osram SSL80 horticultural family of led and the light engine PCB is built in the UK by Marl International who have over 45 years of experience with LED technology and the latest SMT equipment to guarantee a practically perfect pcb every time.

  2. 100,000 hrs lifespan instead of the typical 30,000 - 50,000.
  3. Flawless fitting with solder pads eliminates thermal spikes.
  4. Minimum output drop over time, less than 1% per year.
  5. Superior high end Osram diodes for up to 200% more par than 600w HPS.
  6. More exact horticultural wavelengths and bandwidths for greater efficiency.
 
Budmaster HPS Series

Our HPS series uses the Osram SSL80 horticultural family of led and the light engine PCB is built in the UK by Marl International who have over 45 years of experience with LED technology and the latest SMT equipment to guarantee a practically perfect pcb every time.

  1. 19 x Osram SSL80 led on the board.
  2. 100,000 hrs lifespan instead of the typical 30,000 - 50,000.
  3. Flawless fitting with solder pads eliminates thermal spikes.
  4. Minimum output drop over time, less than 1% per year.
 
Budmaster C.O.B Series

Our C.O.B series uses only the best quality C.O.B available from Citiled and Osram.

Citiled invented the C.O.B and still year on year give the highest luminous efficacy and efficiency of any C.O.B beating Cree, Samsung etc hands down.

  1. 50,000+ hrs lifespan.
  2. Wider lens angle for greater coverage.
  3. 1 x 50w High CRI S4 Citiled CO.B on the board or 12 x Osram COB.
  4. Flawless fitting with Uniphase to transfer heat efficiently.
  5. Custom made optics to protect the C.O.B and channel the light efficiently.

 

 
Budmaster II XG Series

The Budmaster II XG series is where it all began. Designed completely by ourselves and tested in the UK thoroughly before entering production they have become a household name in the hydroponics industry around the globe.

As you can see from our wealth of grow diaries the Budmaster XG range is beating standard 600w HPS hands down every day in many different countries and is a more than adequate replacement for HPS.

However with the standard quality diodes that we use the product is in no way comparable to our new Osram ranges in output or longevity of output so we warranty the XG series for only 1 year.

Of course the XG series can be upgraded to any other Budmaster type with our simple upgrade process.
