As a 1-to-1 high pressure sodium (HPS) replacement, this new product allows for the easy switch from HPS to LED toplighting. The compact, passively cooled LED toplighting compact fits seamlessly in existing HPS set-up and trellis constructions, saving time and money on installation. The toplighting compact replaces 1,000-watt HPS lighting while offering the same amount of light and consuming 40% less power.
Udo van Slooten, Business Leader Horticulture at Signify, said about the Philips LED toplighting compact, “Thanks to the optimized design of the wide beam optics, the LED toplighting compact provides excellent light distribution for most greenhouse configurations, including high-wire crops. Besides vegetables and flowers, it’s also an ideal option for growers of medicinal cannabis.”
Also, being unveiled at Cultivate’19 is the new Philips GreenPower LED production module 3.0.
For growers that use multilayer system to grow lettuce, basil, or other vegetables or fruits, the GreenPower LED production module 3.0 can optimize lighting in sole-source growing environments.
