Signify has launched Philips GreenPower LED gridlighting to drive consistent bud development and more top-shelf flowers in medicinal cannabis cultivation. The grow light is specifically designed for cultivators growing on benches or tiered racking. The gridlighting grow light is a solution for commercial cannabis cultivation facilities of any size.

Light uniformity
With its six light bars, the fixture is optimized to cover a 16 square foot area, providing canopy light uniformity, to steer uniform bud development and result in an increased yield of top-shelf flowers. A more consistent harvest schedule, shorter crop cycles than with high-pressure sodium (HPS) lighting, and increased growth predictability provide growers with higher production.

Among other benefits, the gridlighting enables yields with consistent cannabinoid values. On top of that, it is easy to deploy, with adjustable cables or fixed position hooks, ensuring plug-and-play installation from commercial vertical racking applications to small grow operations. In addition, users can dim levels to tailor light intensity during each growth phase. The Philips GreenPower LED gridlighting offers 0-10 Volt dimming pre-sets to support plant growth through every phase, from propagation to flowering through a rotary dimmer steering either one or several racks at once.

Full-spectrum light recipe
Philips GreenPower LED gridlighting’s design, which locates the driver between the bars, maximizes vertical space usage. This space efficiency also means high light uniformity close to the lighting fixture. The full-spectrum light allows for easy inspection in indoor grow facilities. The gridlighting connects from 120-277 voltage and is designed with discreet cabling that is easy to manage, minimizes plant damage, and keeps facilities’ workers safe. The thermodynamically balanced passive cooling keeps diodes operating at peak efficiency with a light output of 1700 µmol/s.

“Our racking solution for cannabis cultivation lets growers easily install it. An optimized light recipe based on our cannabis-growing research means growers can get the highest number of flowers from their cannabis crops as possible,” says Udo van Slooten, Business Leader Horticulture, LED Lighting, Signify.
