Innovative Growers Equipment, a leading manufacturer of greenhouse benches, racks, and horticultural lighting systems, has selected Seoul Semiconductor ultraviolet (UV), white, and deep red (DR) LEDs for its latest lighting product, the ILE Radiance Spectrum UV6C horticultural lighting fixtures. The fixtures use the unique spectral properties of Seoul’s LEDs to produce an enhanced broadband spectrum of light designed to maximize plant yields at all growth stages.
The four-foot square 600W LED arrays are mounted in extruded aluminum frames, with five LED channels per frame with sealed glass lensing, and are designed to produce full spectrum light optimized for plant growth.
“The ILE Radiance Spectrum lights were developed by leveraging years of grower collaboration to design our state of the are fixture,” said Chris Mayer, CEO of Innovative Growers Equipment. “Our proprietary combination of white, UV-A, and deep red LEDs maximize biomass accumulation, boost chlorophyll A & B absorption rates, stimulate cannabinoid levels, and mitigate pathogens in a wide range of horticultural applications.”
“In developing the Radiance Spectrum UV6C lighting system, our collaboration led us to select Seoul Semiconductor and Seoul Viosys, since their LED technology innovations include devices that produce light across a normalized photon spectrum from ultraviolet to deep red,” said Butch Tomasko. “The enhanced broadband spectrum of light produced enables growers to ensure better yields and a consistently high quality of crops.”
Designed to be suspended over crops at a height of 12”, the Radiance Spectrum UV6C lighting system frames measure 44” x 44” with an ultralow profile of just 2”. The LEDs feature a PAR efficiency of 2.5µmol/J, and the fixture delivers a photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD) of 1,500µmol/s, with a beam angle of 120°. Available for 110 – 277VAC or 348 – 480VAC input voltages with pre-installed drivers, the fixtures have a ≥90% power factor, and are dimmable (0-10V, PWM).
The Radiance Spectrum UV6C fixtures are shipped fully-assembled, and feature an operating temperature range of 14° – 113°F (-10° – 40°C), and have an IP-66 environmental rating for use in humid environments. They are certified to cETLus, FCC, and DLC safety and performance standards, and carry a five-year warranty.
