Acceptable RH/Temp environment for Absolute Series 5000K strip lights
I am considering using some of your Absolute Series 5K strip lights in an indoor sunroom where I grow plants. It is not a wet (condensing) environment and the temperature and humidity are generally controlled between 50-85 degrees F and 65-80% RH, though some days peak out at 95 degrees F and 90% humidity for a few hours over a few days. I would be running the lights for a maximum of 8 hrs/day, mostly during daylight hours. Would there be any problems using this product in these conditions?
As long as the elevated humidity is a temporary situation, you should not see any significant issues.
In personal experience with LEDs for personal grow projects, the only issues seen are when large leaves begin to grow directly into the lights and shelves above them.
The leaves themselves, of course, end up shriveling up where there is direct contact due to the heat, but a more concerning issue observed is that the leaves that are in direct contact with the LED circuit board produced lots of condensation onto the LED circuit board surface via transpiration. As a result, there were rusting and circuit damage caused by this particular situation.
