Long-life LED fixtures stimulate plant growth while saving energy
Danvers, Mass. – North American lighting leader Osram Sylvania is unveiling ZELION® HL Horticulture LED grow light fixtures with state-of-the-art Oslon® LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors. This combination delivers one of the most reliable LED horticulture fixtures in the industry. The modularized ZELION HL LED grow light family is suitable for both the commercial growers and do-it-yourself horticulturalists across a wide range of applications, including turf and landscape maintenance, commercial greenhouses and indoor gardening.
“Plants use light as a source of energy. The cultivation of plants in a greenhouse environment supported by artificial light helps control all the elements that can influence the growth of the plant. Monochromatic LEDs can create an ideal environment for plant cultivation. The spectral output of the light can be tuned to deliver optimum growth and energy savings for a particular species of plant,” said Jeremy Pymento, business manager for NAFTA Semiconductor & Industry Segments, Osram Sylvania. “As the world population continues to increase and more agricultural land is lost to urban development, greenhouses equipped with artificial lighting provided by our new ZELION HL Horticulture LED Grow Light fixtures can play an important role in plant cultivation and propagation.”
LED lighting can stimulate plant growth by up to 40 percent. Durable and long lasting LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors are the green alternative to standard horticultural lighting. They can significantly stimulate plant growth while drastically reducing energy consumption through the use of targeted lighting wavelengths at 660 and 450 nanometers. The features of LEDs for horticultural lighting, such as small form factor, high efficiency and long life, provide flexibility for growers. Easily controllable, LEDs are instant on when you need them and can be set in cycles that promote healthy plant growth.
The Oslon LEDs in the ZELION HL Horticulture LED grow light fixtures have a rated life of 100,000 hours (L70), much longer than conventional high pressure sodium (HPS) or other discharge lamps and two times the life of some competing LED fixtures currently available. Available in 25W, 50W, 100W and 150W versions, the LED fixtures also use less energy than HPS fixtures, where the lamps can utilize from 255W up to 1000W. The unique optical design and materials deliver optimal PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) of up to 1180 μmol m-2 s-1 at centerbeam with the ZELION HL 3x2 fixture. ZELION HL Horticulture LED Grow Light Fixtures utilize passive cooling, which makes them completely silent, and are reliable and IP65 rated for safe operation in wet and damp environments. Each fixture has four holes on the top-end plate so they can be hung by wires or chains above growing plants, and has water resistant independent red and blue On/Off switches so the light can be customized to ensure optimal growth conditions for the specific plant species. They are also backed by a 3-year limited warranty to ensure trouble free performance.
