Luminus Adds "Horticulture White" to Horticulture Offering that Includes UV & Far Red

Luminus Devices, Inc., a global manufacturer of high-performance LEDs and solid-state light sources, has expanded its horticulture LED portfolio with new SST-20 series white LEDs to complement the extensive range of discrete wavelengths from UVA (365nm) to Far Red (730nm).

Incorporating white light in horticulture fixtures provide illumination in the greenhouse and make it easier to observe crops for signs of disease and, in many cases, white LEDs can replace blue LEDs as they provide similar PPF, and thereby potentially reduce production costs. With a flexible offering spanning 2700K to 7000K, customers can now select the light most appropriate to their needs.

“The need for improved crop yields and more sustainable food supplies is more important than ever and our horticulture LED advances enable innovative luminaires that directly address the market’s needs,” said Yves Bertic, Luminus’ senior director of global product marketing.

As the horticulture and farming research community discover productivity and crop quality gains through wavelength and spectrum engineering, Luminus continues to expand its offering by adding new wavelengths to its current portfolio so that growers and farmers can maximize production yields, become more sustainable and reduce costs.

“With this addition to our SST series, we now offer a comprehensive horticulture product portfolio that delivers the highest performance and efficacy with competitive lead times of 12 weeks or less,” said Bertic.

Luminus horticulture LED products are globally available in volume directly or through our distribution network. For additional information on Luminus' horticulture portfolio, please visit www.luminus.com/products/horticulture
