Lumileds Expands Luxeon Horticulture Range
SunPlus 20 Line now offers domed 120° option and higher PPF
Lumileds has added a domed 120° offering to its Luxeon SunPlus 20 Line of horticultural LEDs. It is designed for uniform, high PPF (Photosynthetic Photon Flux) output and allows more light to be directed at crops.
“Growers are continuously looking for ways to boost crop yield. With the Luxeon SunPlus 20 Line's higher PPF output and tighter radiation pattern, they can increase their crop yield in a given area,” said Anthone Chong, product manager of the Luxeon SunPlus Series. With five colour options, the Luxeon SunPlus 20 Line provides a wide spectral offering for horticultural applications in a compact footprint (2.0 x 2.0 mm).
All the company's horticultural LEDs are tested and binned by photosynthetic photon flux (PPF), at 85degC. The line also includes Cool White and broad spectrum Lime, which typically are used during crop inspection.
Lumileds will continue to offer the line of Luxeon SunPlus 20 LEDs to customers that prefer the 150° radiation pattern. Both LEDs are listed in the Lumileds Horticulture Lighting Calculator to test LED configurations prior to building fixtures. Users can select one LED combination that matches a crop's requirements or adjust the light spectrum through different stages of plant growth.
The newest addition to the Luxeon SunPlus 20 Line joins the already popular Luxeon SunPlus 2835 Line which was launched last November.
