Philips Lighting introduces new GreenPower LED toplighting at IPM Essen with higher efficacy, light output and a longer lifetime
Eindhoven, The Netherlands – Philips Lighting (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today announced the introduction of new GreenPower LED toplighting modules at IPM Essen that helps greenhouse growers improve the growth of lettuce, herbs and high-wire vegetable crops. Both new versions offer a higher light efficacy of up to 3.3 µmol/J, a longer lifetime of 35,000 burning hours and exceptional energy efficiency compared to the former toplighting module. The 520 µmol/s photon flux version is designed to cost-efficiently enhance growth of high-wire tomato and cucumber crops by producing the optimal amount of light in a full LED system, while using less energy. The 620 µmol/s version is ideal for increasing light output for horizontal cultivation of lettuce and herbs.
