are both white color, sunlike full spectrum suitable for both veg and flower or all stage of your plants’ growing. They
both put high PPE above 2.15umol/j, and they are all with no fan design. During the past months, they two series have
been tested and proved with great growing results and become Mars Hydro growers favorite new lights, But, many of
the growers are still have confusion, what is the difference between the two line? Now, we will give you the answer
Cooling System & Heat Dissipation
They produce same heat under the same wattage, but the thick heat sink design makes Mars SP series release more
heat than Mars TS series.

Max Coverage : 2ft x 3ft = 60cm x 90cm
Mars SP 250 (230w)
Core Coverage: 2ft x 4ft = 60cm x120cm
Max Coverage : 3ft x 5ft = 90cm x 150cm
Mars TS1000 (150w)
Core Coverage: 2ft x 2ft = 60cm x60cm

Max Coverage : 4ft x 4ft = 120cm x 120cm
Mars TSL2000 (300w)
Core Coverage: 2.5ft x 4ft = 75cm x120cm
Max Coverage : 3ft x 5.5ft = 90cm x 165cm
What exactly is penetration? It refers directly to the PPFD available at a given distance after the calculation of inverse square
and lens/reflector coefficients. And Mars SP can penetrate deeper to plant from the top of leaves to bottom.
