    Signify makes it easier to switch from HPS to LED toplighting using existing infrastructure

     
    • Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact provides easy 1-to-1 switch while re-using your existing HPS plug and infrastructure
    • Replace 1000W HPS lighting and get the same amount of light with 40% less electricity use
    • Replace 600W HPS lighting and get 80% more light for the same amount of electricity

     

    Eindhoven, Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today unveiled its new concept for the Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact. This compact, passively cooled LED toplighting provides a 1-to-1 replacement for HPS lighting that fits seamlessly in existing HPS connections and trellis constructions. The goal is to make it easier for growers to make the switch to LED lighting as a way to improve their crop results or reduce energy costs.

     

    Compared to a 1000-W HPS light, the Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact will produce the same amount of light, while using 40% less electricity and producing very little radiant heat. This gives growers more independent control over heat and light in their greenhouse climate. Compared to a 600-W HPS light, the new energy efficient compact produces 80% more light, using the same amount of electricity.

    Robust Solution


    “Many growers are looking for an easy way to step into LED lighting and generate the additional benefits of LEDs, including higher yield, better quality crop and more predictability. They often would like to see this happen in their existing greenhouse and structure mounted on the trellis. I’m delighted that we are working on a really robust solution with minimal light interception and without the need for active cooling, so they can take advantage of all the benefits that LED toplighting offers for a whole range of light-loving crops. Together with the plant specialists, account manager and application engineer, the optimized lighting solution for your greenhouse situation shall be determined.”

    Easy fit for low installation costs 

     

    The new compact module is being developed to fit seamlessly in existing HPS connections and trellis constructions, so growers can easily switch from HPS lighting to LED toplighting or create a hybrid LED and HPS lighting system. This new concept has the potential to give growers the flexibility to increase light intensity for a specific crop or expand the illumination area, using the same or much less electricity.

    The Philips GreenPower LED toplighting compact is expected to be commercially available in Fall 2019 as an extension to the existing Philips GreenPower LED toplighting program.

     

    Signify became the new company name of Philips Lighting as of May 16, 2018.
