Designed to boost high-wire yield during the darker periods of the year, it has sideways-facing LEDs focusing growth-stimulating light on the crop, at a highly efficient 3.0 μmol/J.

With a plug and play connector and flexible cable connections, up to 33 interlighting modules can be quickly connected to the system with just one power connection, saving on installation time and costs, Philips says.

Philips Lighting Horticulture LED Solutions managing director Udo van Slooten said: "These latest innovations in our horticultural applications are a result of the long-term collaboration between Philips Lighting and our customers across the world."
