Developed by an 8 year old Swedish electronics company specializing in plant science, they have spent two years perfecting the design and spectral output of their flagship product, the Heliospectra E601C.
Engineered and designed to illuminate an area approximately 1.2m² (4ft²) per fixture, this 600W LED fixture will perform in the harsh environments of commercial and hobbyist gardens, including Sealed Growing or Closed Growing set-ups.
The low amount of radiant heat produced by this unit means growers can grow all year round without the worry of an extremely hot environment during the warm months, and get the fixture closer to the canopy without a risk of burn or scorching the tops. This allows the same quantity of crop to be produced with no marked loss of quality.
The colour spectrum configured by Heliospectra has been developed with growers in mind and utilises a special blend of blue, red, far-red and white diodes; this means it has exactly the right wavelengths of light to produce efficiently fast growing plants, there's no 'unused' light when using the Heliospectra LED fixtures, making them perfect for the hobbyist grower who wants an easy to use, 'out-of-the-box' light fixture.
With its simple 'Plug and Play' operation, growers can use this LED lighting unit within minutes from opening the box and can be used throughout the entire crops life cycle; specifically for both the growth and bloom stages without any loss in yield or quality.
Designed with an IP54 splash rating, this unit boasts an impressive and uniform light distribution pattern covering an area 120cm x 120cm (at a distance of 50cm from the plant canopy) using a two-tier optic made from a highly transparent acrylic glass, that will not discolour or yellow for 30 years.
This intelligent LED is also WiFi enabled, allowing the grower to observe cloud-based monitoring, scheduling and control of their light.
To date, LED's within the horticultural market have mainly been regarded as a gimmick; not one has been taken up by a commercial garden facility as their main source of light.
That was the case until now! Heliospectra have recently sold as many as 700 units to one commercial garden. We can say with confidence that Heliospectra units will produce the goods you're looking for!
