Question How do I wire my Samsung Sun Boards Properly?

Almost there guys. I am really just double checking to make sure the diagram I have is correct before I start wiring... all of the diagrams I have are for 6x or 4x setups.Thanks to @JL2G I know the numbers are correct. Just gotta get the electricity to flow properly now. In this case Would the HLG and the XLG driver be wired the same way if every thing else in the diagram is identical?

Side note: this plug needs to get clipped. Wire is at a minimum tonight so I would like to try and do this once :)

Here's the pic I went and pulled from that other thread.
You'd just add another 3rd set of them for a total of 6 boards, installed in the same as the first two were wired.

With the third set though you would not be able to max the leds out.
You'd be maxing the driver out first. Likely setting off the hiccup mode.
You'd want to dial the set screw for the internal pot back just shy of the drivers limits using a multimeter to do so. Or trial and error. Lol.
If wiring just the four boards you'd still want to dial the screw back as well just to limit what the driver can send to them, so as not to overpower the diodes. With proper cooling they'd probably even take the overpower. Lol

That's not the wiring diagram you want to use. It's for a completely different driver setup.
The diagram you'd posted up in a diff thread with a parallel series setup for the four boards.
It'd be the same deal, just adding a third series set into the parallel circuit.

For the power cord, I assume that's what your using it for? Or are you scavenging it for the led wiring?
What's the wire gauge on it?

This driver was wired to be plugged into a QB... so I have to get rid of the connection...

I could not for the life of me find this fucking diagram... I really need to slow down sometimes...

I am just duplicating this diagram twice?

This is a handy gadget to have..measures everything inc. amperage.
Kill-A-Watt meter

I’ve got one of these smart outlets. If I’m not mistaken... it should be similar...display is on my phone instead of the outlet... took a trip to harbor freight and got the rest of what I needed to get this project cleaned up...

Thank you, would cutting down to six be optimal in your opinion? Max spread is nice but not needed in this case
Really depends on how you want to run them.
Run em soft with more of them, or run hard with less of them.
6 of them does put you at about half of their rated power.
If you're wanting to run em at the 1800 ma you can only fit 4 of them on that driver.
Could get another driver and do two four board lights, push em hard. Lol

This is for a veg light though isn't it?
