LED lighting applications are always changing. GRE Alpha, a pioneer in LED lighting and powering innovation, is at the forefront of one of the newest uses: horticultural LEDs and LED grow lights for rural and urban agricultural settings. In fact, a new Specialty Solutions section of the GRE Alpha website recently launched, a resource for horticultural and grow lighting customers interested in sourcing power solutions for LED grow lamps.
Plants need nutrients, air, water and the right temperature to grow. Horticultural LEDs support the growing process by providing the best recipe of light waves to enhance photosynthesis. Typically featuring traditional lighting elements and used in settings no natural light can reach—or where supplemental lighting might be necessary—grow lights allow for plant and crops to be grown in less-than-optimal conditions. These traditional grow lighting systems are cropping up in apartments and retrofitted warehouses in cities, backyard sheds in suburbia, as well as places with long winter seasons, among other places, to increase agricultural output.
LED grow lighting accomplishesthe same aims as traditional grow lighting systems, butwith less energy output and a better overall yield. Passionate about expanding the applications of its LED products, GRE Alpha is excited to explore the many ways its products can enhance urban farming and agriculture.
Horticultural LED systems have a range of scales, all of which are dependent on the purpose of the system and the lighting components used. As with any LED lighting application, a wide variety of LED lighting is available to customize grow lighting projects. GRE Alpha’s LED drivers target linear type LED grow lights (long-thin) that can extend to fit a range of projects.
Because they are constantly exposed to the humidity, moisture, and higher-than-normal temperatures associated with plant growth, LED drivers for LED grow lights not only have to be incredibly efficient, but also much more reliable. There is an ever-increasing need for lighting control modules that can precisely tune and deliver the best lighting recipe to various types of plants. Having the right lighting control system and LED powering system employed makes all the difference.
GRE Alpha boasts a wide range of powering and lighting control solutions for horticultural and grow lighting applications. Lighting environments require stability and often operate at elevated temperatures that are ideal for plant growth conditions, and horticultural LEDS offer better yield with less energy use. GRE Alpha’s LED powering solutions provide a robust and flexible power platform for powering horticultural LEDs. Lighting control modules boast:
