Horticulture LED lights

Horticulture LED lights

In a horticulture greenhouse, the perfect combination of different factors ensures the best results for growth. Horticulture grow lights are essential for many crops. With assimilation lighting, you can extend the days to let the crop grow faster. Every crop has its own light requirements; with the right ratio of red, blue and white LEDs you can direct the growth of the plant. In addition, you can create the perfect light recipe for every crop with horticulture LED lights.

A cultivation LED light is very suitable for the following crops: leafy vegetables, high-wire crops, floriculture, soft fruit and cannabis. Every crop has his own needs regarding assimilation lighting. Oreon’s fixtures do not only enable you to meet the crop growing requirements and grow the same quality yearround, it uses an active water-cooling system which brings numerous benefits. We’ll dive deeper into the advantages of liquid cooling systems further on.

Water cooled cultivation LED light

In contrast to passively cooled horticultural LED lights, actively water cooled LED lights give you more control over the temperature and the climate in the greenhouse. Especially water cooled LED lights make it easy to manage the climate because the water extracts the heat out of the greenhouse. Windows stay closed and CO2 stays inside. The heat can be reused in several ways so no energy goes to waste. The water-cooling technology also ensures an even longer lifespan of the electronic parts and the leds.

Growing leafy vegetables with horticulture grow lights

If you grow leafy vegetables in a greenhouse, you need to have perfect control over light and temperature. The horticulture LED lights of Oreon are very suitable for leafy vegetables that are grown under glass like microgreens, basil and lettuce. Lights can be adjusted to the specific crop. The result: the vegetables taste better and the quality stays consistent throughout the year. As we discussed before, one of the advantages of a liquid cooling system is that heat can be reused. Since some leafy vegetables often need some additional warmth, the stored heat can be reused.

Horticultural LED grow lights versus HPS

Horticultural LED grow lights versus HPS

Currently, traditional High Pressure Sodium (HPS lights or HID lights) are still frequently used in horticulture. Unfortunately, these lamps consume a lot of energy, produce a lot of heat and the plant cannot use all the colors of the spectrum.

Horticulture LED lights are the future for sustainable crop cultivation. They are energy efficient, have a longer lifespan than other fixtures on the market and can produce the perfect spectrum for each crop. Horticultural LED lights with a customized light spectrum ensure better quality, faster growth, more harvest, larger fruits and better taste all year round. When your crop requires a bit of warmth, water cooled LEDs can also be applied in a hybrid lighting configuration (meaning combined with HPS).

Our water cooled horticultural LED lights produce more light compared to HPS fixtures as well; 3400 uMol/s vs. 2100 uMol/s. Also the efficiency is much better; 3.4 vs. 1.7 μMol/J. This means you need less fixtures for the same amount of light. Curious how many fixtures you would need to get the required amount of light? Oreon is a reliable horticulture LED light supplier and we’re looking forward to applying our vision to your growing area. Please contact us for more information or request a light plan.
