Lumileds Launched Horticulture Lighting Calculator

Lumileds introduced an online calculator that fixture manufacturers can use to more quickly optimize the design of their grow lights. The calculator allows the user to input various LED combinations and operating conditions to generate the spectral power distribution, photosynthetic photon flux (PPF), and power usage of a fixture using Lumileds LUXEON SunPlus Series LEDs. Designed to allow easy modifications of LEDs and operating conditions, the calculator facilitates fixture design by generating real-time feedback on spectral power distribution. Lumileds LUXEON SunPlus Series of LEDs are the only horticulture LEDs on the market that are binned by PPF and wavelength to ensure ease of system design and enable wavelength tuning for maximum crop yield in both greenhouse and vertical farming environments.

“With the Horticulture Lighting Calculator, fixture manufacturers can test many lighting scenarios in a short period of time, so that their optimum designs can be brought to market much more quickly and efficiently than if each potential fixture were built and tested individually,” explained Jennifer Holland, Product Manager of the LUXEON SunPlus Series LEDs and Horticulture Lighting Calculator The LUXEON SunPlus 20 Line of LEDs is optimized for commercial greenhouses and uses 2.0 x 2.0 mm LEDs in Royal Blue (445 -455 nm), Deep Red (655-670 nm), Far Red (720-750 nm), Lime (broad spectra) and Cool White. The LUXEON SunPlus 35 Line is optimized for vertical farming, using Royal Blue, Lime, and three shades of Purple LEDs in 3.5 x 3.5 mm format.
