New LED toplighting for light-loving crops
September 11, 2018 By Greenhouse Canada
Signify (formerly Philips Lighting) recently launched new Philips GreenPower LED toplighting module in Canada, with light efficacy of up to 3.0 µmol/J and an output of 800 µmol/s.
Designed for higher light levels and improved efficiency, the new lighting system aims to help greenhouse growers improve the growth of vegetables, fruits, flowers and other crops that require a lot of light. The estimated lifetime is 35,000 hours.
With minimal heat produced from the LED system, Signify hopes to give growers greater control over their growing climate and more efficient use of grow space, all while accelerating the development of their crop.
There’s flexibility with installation. This 800 µmol/s version of the GreenPower LED toplighting module may be mounted on a trellis to increase uniformity of the light distributed.
The high output version operates at an input voltage of 277V – 400V and will be available in three spectrums: deep red/blue low blue; deep red/white low blue; and deep red/white medium blue.
