Seoul Semi’s SunLike LEDs adopted by Turkey’s Fiberli
South Korean LED maker Seoul Semiconductor Co Ltd says that its SunLike Series natural-spectrum LEDs have been adopted for horticulture LED lighting by Turkey-based lighting solution firm Fiberli, one of the largest agricultural exporters in the world.
Seoul Semiconductor claims that its SunLike Series natural-spectrum LEDs are the first LEDs to produce light that closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight. The LEDs adopted by Fiberli achieved a full spectrum of light wavelengths from 380nm to 740nm, similar to the spectral curve of natural sunlight, with a color temperature of 5000K optimized to daylight spectra and color properties of CRI97, CQS97, TM30=100. In co-operation with Fiberli, Seoul Semiconductor has delivered what it says is an optimal horticulture lighting solution that fulfills the requirements of the light source for effective cultivation of all varieties of crops and flowers.
Fiberli has introduced its horticulture lighting with SunLike with a demo installation of 1500m2.
“SunLike Series natural-spectrum LEDs are the first and only true sunlight LEDs that enable growers to ensure better yields and a consistently high quality of crops,” Fiberli’s director Hakan Ozturk. “Market demand for horticultural LED lighting with SunLike LEDs will expand,” he believes.
“The horticulture lighting market is growing fast, and our SunLike Series natural-spectrum LEDs will offer the considerable benefits for customers to achieve optimal horticulture lighting solutions,” reckons Dr Kim, chief technology officer & VP of Seoul Semiconductor. “We are pleased to expand this horticulture LED portfolio and will further diversify the customer base worldwide.”
SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs were co-developed through the combination of Seoul Semiconductor’s optical semiconductor technology and Toshiba Materials’ TRI-R technology, which enables the spectrum of natural sunlight to be reproduced by a white LED light source.
