An LED retrofit yields benefits beyond labor and energy savings. The Fotono luminaire’s advanced spectral technology ranges from tunable blue and red dominant peaks. With the ability to mimic the spectral content of sunrises and sunsets, growers can always simulate a perfect growing day, regardless of weather conditions.
Many greenhouses rely on a mix of HPS and mercury vapor lamps to place crops under red dominant or blue dominant spectral peaks depending on their stage of life. Fotono technology encompasses both ends of the spectral range all in one package with its patented Day Light Analog Spectrum with a deep PBAR range. Greenhouse staff no longer have to move crops or lamps to ensure that plants are getting the appropriate spectral content for their stage of life. Additionally, using certain spectral wavelengths can limit the amount of chemicals required for plant growth, helping your facility stand out from the competition.
While a standard HPS lamp might require maintenance every 6 months due to degradation, Fotono luminaires come with a 5-year L90 warranty. This improved durability means your facility can spend less time on fixture maintenance and more time on improving growth practices.
