Luminus Introduces Online Horticulture Calculator

Luminus Devices new horticulture calculator offers system engineers the opportunity to choose from over 30 of Luminus horticulture LEDs and create their own ‘recipe’ for specific luminaires and to save and output a complete LED bill of materials. System designers can select multiple LEDs and establish operating conditions, including current and junction temperature, and calculate for photosynthetic photon flux (PPF), optical power, and electrical power. Engineers can test virtually unlimited variations and immediately see spectral and performance data.

Users can easily create and modify custom horticulture spectral solutions

“Our extensive portfolio of horticulture LEDs span the photo biological spectrum from 360nm to 800nm+. And with three package platforms and five product families, it’s easy for our customers to select the best combination of LEDs to achieve the specific PPF or PPF per Watt that they need,” said Yves Bertic, Senior Director of Global Product Marketing. “With this new calculator, users can create custom solutions and see in real time how changes in their LED product mix will affect key luminaire parameters.

Inputs/Selections

  • LED part number
  • Number of LEDs
  • Drive current
  • Temperature

Outputs

  • Forward Voltage (V)
  • Electrical Power (W)
  • Optical Power (W)
  • Wall Plug Efficiency (%)
  • PPF (umol/s) 400-700nm
