New greenhouse led light test program

Greetings from Craig Adams at California Lightworks,

We are about to introduce a new generation greenhouse LED lighting line and we are looking for a few pilot installations to test the new light and get feedback. We can offer a significant discount and support in setup and monitoring the system. At the end of the test you have the option of returning the lights for a full refund or keeping the lights at the discounted price.

This new lighting system features many significant advances in greenhouse lighting:

  • Minimal shadow effect and simple installation
  • Latest Osram LEDs running at 2.7 efficiency
  • Optimised spectrum for cannabis and two channel spectrum control and dimming
  • Integraiton with a light sensor and controller to balance with available sunlight
  • Integrated drivers - no external drivers to mount
  • Chainable - run up to 10 lights on a single power drop - reduced installation costs
  • Waterproof - IP67
  • Low cost and high light output
  • 100% made in the USA - local support and and system design
  • We can develop a complete light plan for your greenhouse at no cost to consider this program

If this test program might be of interest please email me back at [email protected] or you can also see is in Las Vegas next week - Booth Number 4471

Thanks,

Craig

Do you have a PAR map for the SolarSystem 1100 in a 5’x5’ testing environment?

Thanks for your email.

Here is a PAR map over a 4 X 4…

Would you consider a 75+% variance amongst your PAR spikes to be problematic (in reference to your 24" map)? If so, how do you plan on improving that?

We just introduced a new generation Osram LED which has a much higher efficiency (up to 2.8 micromoles per joule) as well as a wider angle so the coverage is more even at lower hanging heights. For the SolarSystem we recommend higher hanging heights and overlap in commercial settings with high ceilings. This gives better coverage across a large canopy and deeper penetration than hanging at 24 inches.

For tents we recommend going as high as possible to take advantage of the reflective walls and getting more angles off the reflected light for more even coverage and deeper penetration into the canopy.

In situations where there are no reflective walls we recommend using more lights at a lower wattage to get more even coverage and better penetration. This is why we offer 200, 400 and 800 watt versions. We can adapt these to any canopy or hanging heights.

We are also about to launch two new product lines for various applications as well:

SOLARXTREME – 200, 400, and 800 watt versions with much wider lens angles for tents and low hanging heights. The best part is that these lights will be half the price of the current SolarSystem series.

GREENHOUSE PRO SERIES – This line features a long linear form factor for limited shadow effect, high efficiency, two channel Bluetooth spectrum control, no external drivers, dimming and chainability – up to 10 lights on a single power drop – all at a lower price per watt than anything even close to this performance.

We are also offering a 680 watt version using two of these bars over a 4 X 4 table - incredible power and uniformity – all at a much lower cost than any competitive LEDs.

Check out the attached catalog sheets.

Exciting stuff coming out…

Higher efficient diodes within the same configuration will only exacerbate the problem. β€œA wider angle” - What does this specifically mean? What type of optics are you using?

What are the PAR maps after testing these improvements?
