Signify introduced Philips GreenPower LED toplighting Compact at Cultivate 2019. The new grow light is 1-to-1 high-pressure sodium (HPS) replacement and 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.
Owing to the optimised design of the wide beam optics, the LED toplighting compact offers 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, another light, Philips GreenPower LED production module 3.0 was also unveiled at the same show. For growers that use multilayer system to grow lettuce, basil, or other vegetables or fruits, the GreenPower LED production module 3.0 can optimise the lighting in sole-source growing environments.
The unique combination of high light output and wide beam optics means growers can install 50% fewer modules. Operational costs are low thanks to the production module’s robust design, high energy efficiency and long lifetime.
The controllable versions of the production module 3.0 allow colour and light levels to be adjusted and can be used with the GrowWise Control System, as a stand-alone lighting application or integrated into a greenhouse climate computer. Growers can count on consistent production with the very high light uniformity, day after day.
