July 8, 2020 /AxisWire/ Kind LED Grow Lights has announced the X², a game-changing innovation in commercial grow technology. Developed as the perfect solution to vertical racking and overhead grow operations, the X² was specifically designed for close proximity growing, capitalizing on valuable tiered growing space while maintaining a large coverage footprint and even PPFD output. This means increased harvest weight and quality, and unmatched potential for financial returns on your harvest.

The revolutionary concentric square design and unique diode arrangement of the X² definitively rejects the dated concepts and common shortcomings of popular LED fixtures, offering a more even PPFD across the canopy than the ubiquitous parallel bar design seen in commercial fixtures. This ensures you never sacrifice an inch of potential growth across the canopy or have to deal with any troublesome hotspots putting your harvest at risk, and ultimately increases production and overall plant health.

Every component of the X² has been over-engineered to withstand the rigors of commercial grow environments. Heat is potentially disastrous to electronic components, and the X²’s substantial heatsink means components remain cool, ensuring a safe grow environment and extending the lifespan of your fixture long beyond the competitors.

Taking cues from other award-winning lights in the Kind LED family, the X² features a 3-Channel fully customizable spectrum when paired with a compatible controller, enabling growers to match the needs of any plant at any stage of growth. This means only one fixture is needed to get the job done, from seed to harvest. When paired with a compatible controller, more than 500 X² fixtures can be controlled simultaneously.

“As a grower who first learned on LED lights over 10 years ago, I have always loved the possibilities that lay ahead,” said Brandon Okman, owner of Best Buds Botanical. “The X² by Kind LED has reached the pinnacle I hoped for. The raw science behind this light is something to be admired. From the quality build to the perfect balance of spectrum, you can tell they poured their heart and soul into this light. With the X² I can truly say we’ve reached the point of surpassing what your standard HPS can do. I’ve been able to save money on wattage and AC costs while improving my overall quality. Kind X² is the game-changer that this industry has been waiting for.”

“I have been testing the X² light against other LEDs on the market,” added Scott Bulkeley, lead cultivator at Top Shelf Cannaseurs. “Hands down, the X² has a far superior build quality over the other lights, which you can especially tell once you grow with one firsthand. It’s definitely been built to last and Kind didn’t cut any corners in the design, which is exactly what you want in a commercial light. Yield is similar to that what I’m used to with a DE light, which again, blows away the competition for LEDs. The control features are really easy to use and the added tunability feature is something no other company offers. This light is the whole package and then some, and I’m extremely happy with the results.”

Kind LED’s new X² fixture has a true PPF of 1650 μmol/sec with almost every photon absorbed by the plant, and an efficacy of 2.22 μmol/J. It features 384 OSRAM OSLON® SSL diodes and a max wattage of 750w, with a lifetime of over 75,000 hours and a 5-year warranty. Like all Kind LED products, this fixture is backed by industry-leading customer service. The X² will be available on July 8th, 2020, with a retail price of $1,695. An optional controller is also available for $299.95.
