Signify launches new Philips GreenPower LED toplighting with higher output for light-loving crops

    August 28, 2018

     

    Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today announced the introduction of the new Philips GreenPower LED toplighting high output with a light efficacy up to 3.0 µmol/J and an output of 800 µmol/s. The new module will help greenhouse growers improve the growth of vegetables, fruits, flowers and other crops that require a lot of light. The new toplighting is available as of September 2018.

     

    In addition to higher light levels and improved efficiency, the high output modules will have a lifetime of 35,000 hours and give growers greater control over their growing climate because of minimal heat radiation while accelerating the growth cycle and enabling more efficient use of grow space.

     

    Best choice for increasing light or decreasing energy costs

     

    For many years, the use of LED toplighting for greenhouse vegetable cultivation has been steadily growing. Now we can offer an even more efficient solution for a variety of growing needs and light-loving crops. Whether growers are looking to apply more light to leafy greens, roses, or bio-based crops, or are focused on reducing their energy costs, the new GreenPower LED toplighting can meet both requirements.”

    Uniform light distribution and long lifetime

    This 800 µmol/s version GreenPower LED toplighting module may be mounted on a trellis to deliver uniform light distribution, which gives growers flexibility with installation and adhere to light plans without the use of an additional C profile.

     

    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.
