Recently, Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg has released the Duris S5 purple, which combines key wavelengths of red and blue into a single purple LED in order to expand its portfolio of horticulture LEDs with various colours, voltage and beam-angle options.
The newly launched horticulture lighting combines key wavelengths of red and blue into a single purple LED that can make horticulture applications more cost-effective.
The rise in the demand of LED-based horticulture lighting is mainly due to the features such as to select a specific colour spectrum or wavelength, lower power consumption and longer lifespan which eventually results in lower maintenance and operational costs. Furthermore, the flexibility for design and control functions has created a growing demand for both professional as well as consumer applications.
According to the German lighting company, combining two of the most important wavelengths (450nm and 660nm) for plant growth in a single package, the Duris S5 purple LED renders a particularly cost-effective solution for economic applications. The LED is available with output powers of 0.3W and 1.0W and is suitable for horticulture lighting systems in indoor consumer markets.
The new LED utilises an innovative phosphor spectrum for high photosynthetic photon flux (PPF) professional-grade materials (such as a high-quality epoxy lead-frame), Osram’s sapphire chip as well as robust silicone and has been qualified by extensive stress test. The Duris S5 purple can also be mixed with the Duris S5 lime to produce high-quality white light (good for harvesting and visual inspection).
