Erik Jansen, Signify, about new version of the Greenpower LED toplighting linear
"The most uniform light distribution in your greenhouse"
The Signify product range for greenhouse horticulture lighting has been expanded. The new version of the Greenpower LED toplighting linear was launched by Signify during IPM in Essen, Germany. Erik Jansen, floriculture LED business development manager at Signify, explains that this is already generation 1.3.
“In short, it comes down to the fact that the great advantage of this new lamp is the large amount of light. Moreover, the linear toplighting is the perfect solution if you, as a grower, are looking for the most uniform light distribution in your greenhouse. The maximum light output has been increased from 620 to 1000 μmol/s. The light intensity of this lamp is equivalent to the 600 W Son-T lamp. But it only requires a maximum of 300 to 325 W of energy, depending on the spectrum. So this lamp uses about half the power, while the light output is the same. A good combination; the lamp produces noticeably more light and is a lot more energy efficient.”
On the one hand, the operational costs will decrease thanks to the lower power consumption. And on the other, it provides more light for the crop. It is clear that a lot of light is a good thing.
