Edwards will discuss why horticultural lighting has had a "paradigm shift" with the use of LED technology enabling growers to isolate and mix wavelengths that are more effective in promoting consistent and healthy plant growth, with the possibility of enabling season extension or all year round growing and increasing yield.Edwards said: "’With the advent of wide-spectral range LED horticultural lighting, the ability to maximise photosynthetic response in plants through a combination of improved spectral range and quick and efficient switching cycles is now possible. In addition, LEDs have enabled many other advantages, to name a few: longer lifespan, lower power consumption, less radiant heat directed at the plants and the ability to control spectral composition."
Plessey’s Attis-7 LED grow light is being showcased on booth F6 at the LED Professional Symposium show. The Attis-7 LED grow light is targeted towards commercial, research and university growers. The attis-7 features:
· Proven energy saving and plant response
· No cooling fan
· High efficiency, patented hear dissipation design
· Built in power supply
