Lumex announces the global launch of its SunBrite Agricultural LED lightbar, which is used to stimulate plant growth, on Oct. 9, 2012. Available in both red and blue wavelengths for diverse plant types and growing cycles, lightbar offers performance and cost benefits compared to high-intensity discharge (HID) and alternative LED technologies.
The new technology can generate up to 93 percent more light absorption, 50 percent space savings and 80 percent cost savings compared to some HID technologies. Due to its sleek design, the SunBrite Agricultural LED Lightbar can be up to 20 percent more compact in size and 20 percent more cost-effective than alternative agricultural LED technologies.
Compared to HID technologies such as metal halide and high pressure sodium (HPS) solutions, LED lightbars offer key performance benefits in the areas of efficiency and ease-of-use for a wide range of agricultural applications, including horticulture, greenhouse, gardening, planting and seeding.
