Signify recently launched Philips GreenPower LED gridlighting for cannabis.
Announced in October, the product is designed to drive consistent bud development and more top-shelf flowers in medicinal cannabis cultivation.
The grow light is specifically designed for cultivators growing on benches or tiered racking, as well as commercial cannabis cultivation facilities of multiple sizes – from large high-tech grow facilities to small grow operations.
With six light bars, the fixture is optimized to cover a 16-square foot area, providing canopy light uniformity. According to Signify, it offers a more consistent harvest schedule, shorter crop cycles than with high-pressure sodium (HPS) lighting, and increased growth predictability.
Adjustable cables or fixed position hooks make it easy to deploy, ensuring plug-and-play installation. In addition, users can dim levels to tailor light intensity during each growth phase.
The Philips GreenPower LED gridlighting offers 0-10 Volt dimming pre-sets to support plant growth through every phase, from propagation to flowering through a rotary dimmer steering either one or several racks at once.
The design, which locates the driver between the bars, maximizes vertical space usage. This space efficiency also means high light uniformity close to the lighting fixture. The full-spectrum light allows for easy inspection in indoor grow facilities.
The gridlighting connects from 120-277 voltage and is especially designed with discreet cabling that is easy to manage, minimizes plant damage and keeps facilities’ workers safe. The thermodynamically balanced passive cooling keeps diodes operating at peak efficiency with a light output of 1700 µmol/s.
“An optimized light recipe based on our extensive cannabis-growing research means growers can get the highest number of top-shelf flowers from their cannabis crops as possible,” says Udo van Slooten, Business Leader Horticulture, LED Lighting, Signify.
