Luminus' New Horticulture CoB LEDs Promise New Growth for the Cannabis Market

Luminus Devices, Inc. a global manufacturer of high-performance LEDs and solid-state light sources, has released its Horticulture CoBs with spectrums targeted for cannabis production. The new devices are available with 14 mm and 22 mm light emitting surfaces (LES) and provide best in class PPF and PPF/W performance. With operating power from 25 W to 125 W, the PPF range extends from 45 µmol/s to over 150 µmol/s with the larger 22 mm LES.

“Horticulture CoBs are perfectly suited to replace HPS lamps for growing ‘light-hungry’ crops such as Cannabis as they offer high PPF output combined with excellent efficacy. Additionally, CoB’s broad ecosystem makes it easy for fixture manufacturers to develop new lighting solutions for any indoor operation,” said Yves Bertic, senior director of global product marketing. CoBs typically outperform HPS lamps when it comes to power consumption, spectrum, efficiency, and lifespan.

The new CoBs are available with two spectra options; the first is a phosphor-converted Deep Red spectrum with 1:1 Blue to Deep Red intensity ratio and the second has a 1:2 Blue to Deep Red intensity ratio. Though the color of the CoBs is often referred to as “purple”, it has two peaks, one at 450 nm and one at 640 nm.

“Beyond the cannabis market, the need for improved crop yields is more important than ever, and our new horticulture CoBs enable innovative luminaires that directly address the market’s needs,” said Bertic “With the ability to customize spectra to specific crops or classes of crops, we foresee a portfolio that supports growers around the world.”

Luminus continues to expand its horticulture offering by adding new package types and spectrums so that growers and farmers can maximize production yields, become more sustainable and reduce costs.
