Features of FC 1500-EVO

FC 1500-EVO

The FC 1500-EVO elevates indoor gardening with its cutting-edge LED technology, specifically tailored for enhancing plant growth in tinny areas. It ensures abundant yields through its potent yet efficient lighting system.

Technical specifications of the FC 1500-EVO include:

  • Spectrum: 660-665nm,2800-3000K,4800-5000K

  • Wattage: 150W±5%

  • Coverage: 2.3'x2.3'

  • PPE: 2.85μmol/j

  • PPF: 427μmol/S

A key highlight of the FC 1500-EVO is its incorporation of the high-end Samsung LM301H EVO LED chips. These chips are celebrated for their unparalleled efficiency and durability, providing a steady and robust light source conducive to all plant growth phases. The LM301H EVO chips are at the pinnacle of horticultural lighting, offering an exceptional efficacy rate of 3.14 μmol/j per diode, and emitting a spectrum finely tuned for plant health, encompassing both physical and nutritional development. This high per-diode efficacy makes the FC 1500-EVO an energy-saving powerhouse, promoting vigorous photosynthesis, the generation of bioactive compounds, and overall plant quality enhancement.

Designed for precision, the FC 1500-EVO targets a 2.3'x2.3' area with remarkable efficiency. It delivers an impressive PPFD of up to 427 μmol/m²/s, making it an ideal option for professional growers looking to boost flowering stages and achieve superior crop quality and yield. The strategic arrangement of LED chips across the light bars ensures a uniform light distribution, fostering even plant growth and preventing the formation of hotspots.

The FC 1500-EVO stands out for its energy efficiency, boasting a PPE of 2.85μmol/j. This efficiency translates into more usable light per watt, reducing operational costs. With a PPF of 427μmol/S, the system ensures optimal light intensity for healthy plant growth and enhanced photosynthetic activity.

The FC 1500-EVO's light spectrum is meticulously crafted, combining rich blue light with red wavelengths to support all-around plant growth. Blue wavelengths encourage vegetative development and the synthesis of important phytochemicals, while red light boosts flowering and bud quality.

Heat management is ingeniously addressed with a wave-shaped heat sink and a multi-bar design that includes spacing for air circulation, effectively dispelling heat and preventing performance issues.

With these features, the FC 1500-EVO emerges as a premier choice for indoor growers aiming to maximize their harvests in small spaces, ensuring lush, healthy plants and abundant yields.

Features of FC-E 1500

FC-E 1500

The FC-E1500 upholds the FC-E series' commitment to delivering excellent value, priced at $139.99 with a special pre-order offer of $125.99. While it forgoes the use of Samsung LED chips, favoring affordability, it doesn't compromise on quality. In fact, the FC-E1500 packs a higher number of LED beads in a more compact layout than the FC 1500-EVO model, enhancing its luminous efficiency and making it exceptionally cost-effective. By choosing Bridgelux chips, the FC-E1500 maintains high lighting standards, ensuring it supports plant growth effectively. This strategic choice positions the FC-E1500 as a compelling choice for those who value both affordability and performance.

Technical specifications of the FC-E 1500 include:

  • Spectrum: 660-665nm,2800-3000K,4800-5000K

  • Wattage: 150W±5%

  • Coverage: 2’x2’ for vegetative growth; 3’x3’ for flowering stages

  • PPE: 2.80μmol/j

  • PPF: 420μmol/S

Central to the FC-E1500's appeal is its energy-efficient design, drawing just 150W of power. This efficiency doesn't come at the expense of performance; the light boasts an impressive PPE of 2.8 µmol/J and a high PPF of 420umol/S, translating to a maximum yield of 2.5g per watt. Such figures highlight the light's capability to drive photosynthesis effectively, making it a cost-effective solution for growers. Its coverage is optimally designed, illuminating a 2’x2’ area for vegetative growth and expanding to 3’x3’ for flowering stages, ensuring each plant receives adequate light without the risk of overexposure.

The FC-E1500 is engineered for uniform light distribution, a feature crucial to preventing uneven growth among plants. Its removable bars offer flexibility in lighting arrangements, adapting to various plant stages, while the dimmable function and the ability to daisy-chain up to 30 lights cater to a range of growing setups. This uniformity is especially valuable in compact indoor gardens where maximizing every inch of grow space is vital.

Beyond its lighting capabilities, the FC-E1500 is designed with the grower's needs in mind. Its full-spectrum grow light mimics natural sunlight to support comprehensive plant development, from vegetative growth to flowering. The inclusion of master light control, along with superior heat dissipation features, underscores its suitability for both home and commercial horticulture. The detachable power supply can be remotely mounted to mitigate heat, and the aluminum heatsink paired with slim profile bars efficiently reduces thermal output, potentially halving electricity bills when compared to HID lights.

In summary, the FC-E1500 presents an excellent choice for indoor gardeners seeking to enhance their growing efforts without incurring high costs. Its combination of energy efficiency, effective light distribution, and thoughtful design features like waterproofing and heat management ensure that plants not only survive but thrive, paving the way for lush, bountiful yields.


Whether you're a seasoned indoor gardener or just starting, the Mars Hydro FC 1500-EVO and FC-E 1500 LED grow lights offer a blend of efficiency, control, and adaptability that's hard to beat. Designed with the specific needs of a 2.3x2.3 grow tent in mind, these lights ensure that your indoor garden is equipped with the best technology for thriving plants and abundant yields.
