New LED Options Designed to Boost Greenhouse Plant Quality
LumiGrow Pro Series E Offers More Light With Less Energy
LumiGrow’s Pro Series E combines optimized spectrum LED technology with cloud-based wireless control. Each Pro Series E fixture comes with a wireless control module included. Growers can manage lights from any phone, tablet, or computer via the SmartPAR Wireless Control System.
“We’ve engineered our lighting solution with an energy-efficient and intuitive design that uses high-efficacy LEDs,” says David Littleton, Executive Vice President of Operations and Engineering at LumiGrow. “We’ve increased light output and implemented robust components-drivers, with a user-friendly cloud-based software interface that allows for real-time adjustment of output intensity and spectral ratios for optimizing photosynthesis, achieving high yields, and improving quality.”
The Pro Series E product line takes advantage of the newest enhancements in LED technology to provide more light output than LumiGrow’s previous Pro Series. The new fixture delivers 50% energy savings versus HID, runs up to 50% cooler than HID lighting, and maintains light output. LumiGrow also enables the devices with spectral control functionality so growers can achieve specific plant responses.

Philips GreenPowerLED Flowering Lamp 2.0 Provides Customized Light Recipes
Philips Lighting’s GreenPower LED flowering lamp 2.0 is an energy-efficient way to extend daylight or interrupt the night-growing cycle in greenhouses. The new Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamp 2.0 builds on the first generation of Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamp and comes in two different spectral versions with light recipes for growing cut flowers. The energy-efficient lamp is designed to increase yield, quality, and consistency of crops and to stimulate flowering.
The next-generation lamp provides an optimum spectrum and high light output and allows growers to save electricity costs by being 90% more energy efficient than conventional incandescent lamps. The lamps have a standard E27 or E26 fitting, allowing them to be used in existing installations, avoiding unnecessary modifications and reducing set-up costs.
To help growers achieve the best results for their crops, Philips Lighting invented light recipes that combine light spectrum, intensity, uniformity, timing, and positioning. The Philips GreenPower LED flowering lamp 2.0 is available with two different spectral versions: one offers a combination of Deep-Red and White (DR/W) and the other a combination of Deep-Red/White/Far-Red (DR/W/FR). The DR/W light version inhibits flowering of short-day plants, and has been very effective with chrysanthemums. The DR/W/FR light version is ideal for photoperiodic lighting of bedding plants and perennials. It can extend the day or interrupt the night cycle to promote elongation of the stems of strawberries and stimulate flowering.
