LED line to maximize crop yield
Growers can select specific colour points or design a customized spectrum using the industry’s only LEDs specifically engineered for horticulture applications. The LED’s compact 2.8×3.5mm footprint allows minimal spacing between plants and lighting so that higher crop yield can be realized in interweaving canopy or vertical farm applications. The LEDs are offered off-the-shelf or configured in the Lumileds Matrix Platform for faster time to market of lighting fixtures.
Growers can choose a specific colour point using Luxeon SunPlus 2835 Purple or Horticulture White LEDs, or design a spectrum using the Luxeon SunPlus 2835 Deep Red, Far Red, Lime and Royal Blue emitters. Horticulture White provides an ideal broad spectrum for growing many different crops. In tests, Horticulture White produced red leaf lettuce with significantly greater nutrient levels than RGB LEDs. Luxeon SunPlus Purple LEDs are made with a customized phosphor solution designed to provide the maximum PPF output in the Deep Red and Royal Blue range of the spectrum. Emitters are binned at 120mA (25°C) but can be driven at up to 480mA for greater lumen output and fewer LEDs per fixture.
