Plant growth chamber benefits from LED lighting
LED Plant Growth Chamber
The new LED Plant Growth Chamber from Weiss Gallenkamp is claimed to create ideal conditions for plant growth researchers by delivering greater research opportunities as well as lower running costs.
The lower running costs of the Fitotron SGC 120 LED Plant Growth Chamber result from the LED lighting requiring fewer watts to produce a similar energy output to other grow light alternatives.
Furthermore, the LED lights require no ballasts to operate and can last 50,000 hours.
The ability to adjust spectrum, irradiance and wavelength in the LED lights enables good replication of conditions that most benefit individual plant types and widens the scope for comparative plant studies under different lighting types.
According to Weiss Gallenkamp, the high spectral quality and low heat radiation of the LED lights brings greater control and reliability to the research conditions.
Further advantages of the growth chamber are its touch screen controller; large growth area due to multiple shelves; minimal footprint size; and the opportunity it provides to have a mixture of LED and fluorescent lamps.
LED lighting can be adapted to take advantage of the fact that vegetative plant growth prefers the blue part of the light spectrum, whereas flower plants or fruits prefer the red part of the light spectrum.
Weiss Gallenkamp customers with existing SGC 120 models are able to have LED shelves retrofitted.
Solar Energy is considered forward-looking and progressive and, for this reason, a large number of companies are now working in the field of manufacturing products for the use of solar energy.
