Lumex Update - SunBrite™ Agricultural and Horticultural LED Lightbars


SunBrite™ Agricultural and Horticultural LED Lightbars

New Agricultural / Horticultural LED Lightbars Offer Optimal Plant Growth Stimulation

Lumex’s exciting new LED lightbar technology can generate up to 93% more efficient light absorption, 50% space sav- ings and 80% cost savings compared to some HID technologies. Due to its efficient design, the SunBrite Agricultural LED Lightbars can be up to 20% more compact in size and 20% more cost-effective than alternative agricultural LED technologies.

Academic research has demonstrated that optimal light exposure for chlorophyll absorption is obtained when plants are exposed to red (640 to 660 nm) and blue (450nm to 460nm) light sources. LEDs offer full spectral composition control, ensuring that nearly 100% of emitted light waves are fined tuned to match the absorption wavelengths of chlorophyll compared to HPS technology where only 7% of the light created is absorbed by plants. Because LEDs offer 93% more efficient light absorption than HPS technology, use of fertilizers and other plant food can be significantly reduced, generating cost savings and minimizing the use of chemicals.

Applications / Markets:

  • Horticulture
  • Greenhouse
  • Gardening
