Hello all, Thank you for having me. I am a disabled senior from the electrical/HVACR/plumbing trades since 1972. The LED lighting technology has sorta slipped up on me being I have been disabled since 2005 and almost 10 years bedridden so please forgive me for some stupid questions and go gentle on this old man.
I am looking for a source for LED chips preferably the smart ic on board 120v AC type so not to have to deal with drivers. I am retro fitting a couple of old 400 MH utility company main street type lights to LED if I can find some good reasonable high lumen chips or I can install a couple or more of lesser lumen chips, I removed the ballast and cap to reduce the weight and give more room.
There is enough room for a pee wee football game in there. These lights will light the path of about 200ft to the area where our chickens etc. are kept so my wife can see how to feed and gather eggs in the early night if need be and hopefully to prevent someone from stepping on a snake. I will have them about 20ft in the air and controlled via photo cell and motion detector.
Can anyone recommend a source for chips and sinks that is not the Chinese crap that is all over the internet? I would like to get at least 20k lumens minimum with CRI of no less than 80 and as close to 5000K as I can get. Thanks in advance for any and all help. And forgive me if this is posted in the wrong forum.
