GreenPower has LED unit for multilayer systems

Feb. 6, 2015, Markham, Ont. – Royal Philips has introduced a new GreenPower LED production module for multilayer applications.

It is especially advantageous in vertical city farms as well as for the propagation of young plants. It offers significantly more control, improved and uniform crop quality and energy savings of up to 75 per cent. The energy-efficient LEDs also give off less heat and create a more uniform light distribution, making the module ideal for conditioned environments.

Although this new GreenPower production module uses only 23 W – its predecessor used 32 W – it still produces the same 50 micromol output, and therefore increases yield and quality. Additionally, it reduces energy costs by up to 75 per cent compared to fluorescent lamps, making it the most energy-efficient LED solution in this category.
 
PROVEN LIGHT RECIPES

Several spectral versions of the GreenPower LED production module have been developed, with different colours for different growing requirements. With these versions we offer the best “light recipe” – dedicated combinations of spectrum, intensity, lighting initiation, uniformity and positioning – for each situation.

These light recipes make it possible to enhance specific plant characteristics such as compactness, color intensity and branch development, resulting in optimized crop yield and quality.
 
The GreenPower LED production module is successfully proven in many full-scale commercial applications, including lettuce plant propagation in the Netherlands, multiple crops in the U.S., and leafy vegetables in Japan. All these commercial applications report significant increases in yield and quality.
 
OTHER ADVANTAGES

The GreenPower LED production module can be used in a new installation, as a replacement for fluorescent lamps or as an energy-efficient supplement to natural daylight. It can even be used in greenhouses and in conditioned environments which are not suited to conventional lighting, thanks to its significantly lower heat radiation.
