MMJDaily: Oreon launches 1000W LED fixture for greenhouse horticulture
Oreon presents its new fixture at Fruit Logistica in Berlin, Germany. Oreon’s Dutch Powerhouse, called Monarch, produces a light output of up to 3100 μMol/s, with an efficiency of 3.1 μMol/J.
'Efficient in many ways'
All Oreon’s Dutch Powerhouses operate with a water-cooling technique. This enables the compact Monarch to achieve a light output of up to 3100 μMol/s at an energy consumption of 1010W. That means even more light and fewer fixtures in the greenhouse. The result is not only a lower investment and lower installation costs, but perhaps more importantly: less sunlight being blocked in the greenhouse. Replacing a 1000W HPS fixture with the Monarch lets a grower provide around 60% more light on the crop.
Benefits of water-cooling
Alongside enabling a high output, a compact fixture and high efficiency, the water-cooling system also provides benefits for the climate in the greenhouse. Less radiant heat means fewer temperature fluctuations, resulting in stable humidity and CO2 values. Another advantage is the possibility of reusing the dissipated heat, making full use of the lamp’s energy consumption. The active water-cooling also ensures a low operating temperature for the lamp, benefiting both the light output and the lifespan of the electronics and LEDs.
The Monarch operates at voltages from 200 to 480 VAC, making it suitable for all types of electrical installations. The Monarch is available immediately in any desired light spectrum and can be supplied with a wide or narrow beam angle; this allows the best possible light uniformity to be achieved for any type of crop.
Oreon will present the Monarch at the Holland Pavilion at Fruit Logistica in Berlin from 5 to 7 February, Hall 3.2 – Stand C07.
