Luminus Devices Inc of Sunnyvale, CA, USA – which designs and makes LEDs and solid-state light sources for the global illumination market – has expanded its horticulture LED portfolio with new SST-20 series white LEDs to complement its range of discrete wavelengths from UVA (365nm) to Far Red (730nm).

Incorporating white light in horticulture fixtures provides illumination in the greenhouse and makes it easier to observe crops for signs of disease. Also, in many cases, white LEDs can replace blue LEDs as they provide similar photosynthetic photon flux (PPF), potentially reducing production costs. With a flexible range spanning 2700–7000K, users 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,” says Yves Bertic, 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 says it is continuing to expand its range by adding new wavelengths to its 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,” says Bertic.

Luminus horticulture LED products are globally available in volume directly or through the firm’s distribution network.
