Grow Herbs with GlacialLight Plant Growing LED Lights

GlacialTech Inc., a division of GlacialTech has launched a series of grow light products. Namely the GL-SP15 LED Grow Light, the GL-SP27 LED Grow Light and the GL-BR8W LED Grow light series.

Each uses 15W, 27W and 8W of power respectively, and can be used to supplement plant growth in hydroponic agriculture, Green-house lighting, Herb gardens, home gardens and any situation where plants don’t get enough light in which to thrive. The low power LED solution brings the perfect balance of light to supplement and enhance the plants photosynthesis.

Plants need a certain spectrum of light to enable them to do photosynthesis and grow correctly, and while natural light provides this, not every plant has the right dose for the right amount of time to ensure it grows optimally. That is where GlacialLight have taken the role of the sun and provide the red and blues required for optimal growth in plants in their latest batch of lights, spotlights and globes. The LED lamps combine two wavelengths which are 8 parts red: 650-670nm and one part Blue: 450-460nm, or in some models; six parts Red and three parts Blue, depending on the requirements. While many scientists agree that this combination keeps plants healthy, one also has to question if there is an infra-red or ultra violet by-product or residual danger, and because of the very distinctive range of light that LED’s are able to emit, there are no instances of either IR or UV and as such it is extremely safe and environmentally friendly for all types of plant growing conditions.
  
Highlights:
• Various series provide different wavelengths require by the plants
• Power factor > 0.9 for 115V AC; Power factor > 0.8 for 230V AC
• Excellent thermal solutions in silicon package
• High power driver efficiency > 80%
• High luminous efficacy LED
• Customized services
• NO UV or IR radiation
• Energy saving and environmentally friendly
  
The BR8W has two LED models, GL-BR8W8R1B GL-BR8W6R3B, both of which have an excellent lifespan of in excess of 20,000hrs. The bulbs fit in standard E26/E27 light sockets and work between 100V-240V AC. The bulbs can be used for spotlighting, accent lighting and local lighting in greenhouses, horticultural concerns and hydroponic systems. The product has a 1 year warranty. Care should be taken in very moist conditions.

The SP15 spotlight uses 15W of power and has a lifespan in excess of 20,000hrs. There is only one model (GL-SP15 8R1B) in this series with an 8:1 red/blue light ratio. The device input voltage is 100-240V AC and has a beam angle of 30 degrees. The warranty is 1 year on this product. The SP15W is IP65 dust and water proof certified, although care should be taken in extremely humid environments.

The SP27 spotlight (model: GL-SP27 8R1B) is the brightest LED Grow spotlight in the GlacialLight series, using an 8:1 Red/blue ratio. There are in total 27 high brightness LED’s used in the spotlight, and each is energy efficient. The entire unit is IP66 dust proof and water proof certified however care should be taken when used in extremely humid conditions. The 30 degree beam angel and typical power consumption of 20W ensures your plants have enough light to enable them to grow optimally while giving you power savings you come to expect from LED lights. The product has a 1 year warranty.

The GlacialLight LED product range offers considerable power savings for a considerably longer period of time than traditional lights available. This means long term savings and extended savings for those prepared to invest in LED technology. In addition, the advantages of LED lighting adding to the lowering of the world’s carbon footprint cannot be underestimated.
   
GlacialTech is developing a comprehensive range of products under the GlacialLight brand, stretching from street lighting solutions to all forms of industrial and architectural lighting. The products on offer and in development include serious product enhancements over the current range of competing products available on the market, such as MR16 / BR20 / BR30 / BR40 / T8 Tubes and GL-SP15 Spotlights  (CCD and Infra Red sensor versions), as well as Streetlights to name a few.
