LEDs purpose-built and binned for horticultural needs
The Luxeon SunPlus Series of LEDs introduced by Lumileds are purpose-built for horticulture and binned by photosynthetic photon flux in µmol/s (PPF) to ensure ease of system design for grow lights. The purpose-built LEDs provide the exact wavelengths of light required for horticulture applications, claims the manufacturer. Growers can develop single channel solutions using key wavelengths for photosynthesis, blue (420-480nm) and red (620-670nm). Or they can develop multi-channel solutions with select LEDs to optimize light output for different stages of the plant’s life cycle, including seedlings, germination, vegetative growth, flowering, etc.
