New LEDs from OSRAM SYLVANIA
By Dave Harrison
July 13, 2016, Wilmington, MA – OSRAM ZELION® HL300 series of fully spectra tunable and dimmable horticulture LED lighting fixtures from OSRAM SYLVANIA will be available mid-July for use in various phases of crop growth.
The series, which includes the ZELIONHL300 Grow Light, ZELION HL300 Grow White and ZELION HL300 Sunlight, were designed to meet the specific growing needs of commercial greenhouses, garden centres, research facilities and universities.
These long-life LED fixtures use OSRAM Oslon® LEDs from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors that emit light in the photosynthetic active region of the visible light spectrum (400–700 nm) for optimal plant growth.
When evaluating LED solutions, it is important to check on two parameters: the temperature of the LEDs when the fixture is running and the light distribution on your plant canopy.
The ZELION HL300 series is equipped with a patented active cooling system that maintains low LED junction temperature ensuring long LED life and uniform spectra over the life of the fixture.
In addition, the portfolio is designed with a patent pending optical system providing uniform light distribution.
The fixtures are fully dimmable and spectra tunable to meet the crop life cycle needs using PC based (Windows XP or Windows 7) interface software and controllers used to manage greenhouse processes. The series includes:
• The ZELION HL300 Grow Light, designed for horticulture applications where supplemental lighting is required to enhance crop performance and productivity.
• The ZELION HL300 Grow White, which has a combination of the Grow and Sunlight fixtures’ spectrum, and is used in climate chambers where a higher photosynthetic activity is required or by growers requiring supplemental light where color recognition and rapid, healthy growth are key factors.
• The ZELION HL300 Sunlight, which is recommended for growth chamber applications where natural light is important or for supplemental lighting where colour recognition is important, such as in a garden centre.
