Luminus Introduces Horticulture LED Calculator
Online tool allows users to create and modify custom horticulture spectral solutions
Luminus Devices jas announced an online horticulture calculator that 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.
“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.
By using the free horticulture calculator, users can evaluate and compare the results of using mid-power and/or high-power LEDs, packaged LEDs and/or COBs, and ultimately produce a bill of materials with specific part numbers for the mix that serves them best.
Combining technology originated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with innovation from Silicon Valley, Luminus offers a range of LED solutions for lighting as well as high-output specialty lighting solutions for consumer displays, entertainment lighting and medical applications.
