Accomplish More With Less

Because of its unprecedented power output and industry-leading coverage area, an Scorpio system will always require less fixtures to produce similar (or better) light levels as an HPS system or LED system of similar size. Depending on your goals you can opt to use less fixtures to produce the light levels you’re accustomed to, or you can ‘fill the grid’ with Scorpio luminaires and join the growing movement of pioneers setting harvest records under high-intensity lighting environments.

Unrivaled Intracanopy Illumination

One of the most significant problems facing every other LED model on the market is low output coupled with poor canopy penetration. The Scorpio is the most powerful AND efficient grow light in its class. Swiveling light bars achieve maximum canopy penetration via cross illumination to neighboring plots.

Precision Light Planning

If there's one thing we've learned touring close to a thousand cultivation facilities around the world, it's that every environment is unique with its own special requirements. When you work with Fohse, our partnership kicks off with a thourough review of your grow room plans and your goals. Our light planning team heads into our simulation software to develop a 100% custom configuration tailor-fit to the unique needs of your operation. We can even take it a step further and predict your cost of cooling, cost of electricity, and how much you'll save owing an Scorpio system over time.

Zero Bulb Change Expenses

How much would you save if your grow never had to replace another bulb? Between labor costs, hazardous waste fees, tedious cleaning, the cost of the bulbs themselves, and the inevitable replacement of worn out ballasts, maintaining an HPS system is a never-ending burden to your bottom line. Eliminate the burden entirely by switching to Fohse LED. Buy right, buy once .

L70: 110,000 hours (Based on diode manufacturer specs)
Bulbs Die Suddenly.
LEDs slowly fade.

Our L90 and L70 figures come straight from the data sheets and stress-testing provided by our diode manufacturers. To put the L70 of the Scorpio into perspective, after switching to Fohse LED. Buy right, buy once. 110,000 hours of use the fixture’s output will have diminished to 1,960 μmol/s, which is still 17% MORE POWERFUL than a fresh-out-the-box 1000W DE HPS bulb. And just how long is 110,000 hours? If you run 12/12 cycles every day that’s 9,166 days ... 1,309 weeks ... 301 months ... 25.1 years of runtime and your system will still outperform an HPS system.

Innovative Heat Management

The Scorpio is built to go where no HID system has ever been. With thousands of square inches of heat-dissipating surface area, a Scorpio running at full power is cool to the touch. Couple that with absolutely no ‘IR spike’ and it’s no wonder the Scorpio is the best-of-the-best in the class of multi-level grow lights.

Out of Heat

Unlike obsolete plasma grow lights the Scorpio has no massive 'infrared spike' hidden on the far ends of its spectrum, meaning drastically less heat radiating down on your canopy.

Less AC Less AC

Without the IR spike cooking your upper canopy, you'll need far less cooling to compensate in order to keep your LSTs in an optimal range.

Less AC Even Warmth

A reduction in radiative heat and chilled air compensation makes for a much more even LST temperature throughout your upper to lower canopy.

Less AC More Bud Growth

An even canopy LST temperature promotes more RuBisCO reactions down your canopy, leading to more instra-canopy bud development.

Less AC More Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are heat-sensitive. No more destructive IR spike means more cannabinoids make it to harvest.

Less AC More Terpenes

Terpenes are also heat-sensitive compounds and degrade at higher temperatures. Enjoy some of your best terp profiles ever with the Scorpio!

Less AC Higher Harvest Quality

More cannabinoids and better terpene profiles means you'll enjoy some of your best harvests yet with the Scorpio.

This is Efficiency Done Right

The Scorpio is capable of the same incredible photosynthetic photon efficacy figures as its larger cousin, the A3i. Its secret? An abundance of diodes so no individual diode is ‘overclocked’ to run less efficiently.

More Light, or Smaller Bills?

When you equip your facility with the most powerful AND efficient LED grow light available you have two paths forward available. First, you can configure your Scorpio system to maintain the light levels you’re used to, and thanks to the Scorpio's top-rated efficacy you'll produce that light at rockbottom prices. Second, you can configure your Scorpio system to maintain the electrical expenditures you’re used to, and with the Scorpio’s sky high efficacy that means you’ll produce far more light per watt than you’ve ever seen. Just wait and see what’s possible win a high-intensity light environment. Click here for a glimpse.

Safe to Handle. No More Burns

It's no secret that the heat from typical HPS grow lamps is a safety hazard. At full power the Scorpio is about as hot as a sink full of dish water.
Average Surfrace Temperature: 115°F  /  46°C
Heat Transfer

How does the Scorpio generate so much power yet remain relatively cool to the touch? The secret is in the engineering advantage harnessing the principles of conductive and convective heat transfer. We’ve packed over 7,000-in2 of surface area into the Scorpio’s custom heat sinks. This effectively dilutes and disippates any heat across all that surface area via conductive heat transfer. This makes it much easier for the normal ambient airflow to wick that heat away from the fixture via convective heat transfer where it can be easily shuttled out of your grow environment.

Dustproof. Watertight.

Your grow environment isn’t the friendliest place for sensitive electronics. That’s why the Scorpio can withstand the intense conditions of your grow. It’s impervious to hitchhikers (dust, mites, aphids, spores). It can even withstand full submersion in 1 meter of water.
Ingress Protection Rating: IP67
Ingress Protection

Ingress Protection testing really puts our fixtures through the ringer : sandblasting, water spray, pressure washing, submersion, etc. Rest assured your Scorpio is well-protected from the hazards of your grow environment.
