Grow Lighting

Key Benefits

Light Emitting Plasma offers the following benefits over traditional sources for agricultural and grow lighting applications:

  • Lifetime: LEP sources last 3-5 times longer than HPS sources with a rated lifetime of 50,000 hours, eliminating the need for continuous lamp replacement industrial green houses.
  • Quality of Light: LEP's sun-like spectrum (PAR spectrum 400-700nm) provides the natural illumination needed for maximum plant growth and yield compared to HPS or LED light sources. LEP light produces both UVB (280-315nm) and UVA (315-400nm) rays.
  • Controllable output: With a uniform and directional output for efficient light distribution, LEP is also dimmable and can be digitally controlled for ultimate flexibility.
