LED with wide radiation patterns targets horticultural application
The 120° radiation pattern enables more light to be directed at the crops, claims the manufacturer. With five color options, the Luxeon SunPlus 20 Line provides the industry’s widest spectral offering for horticultural applications in a 2.0×2.0mm footprint. All the company’s horticultural LEDs are tested and binned by photosynthetic photon flux (PPF), at 85°C. The line also includes Cool White and broad spectrum Lime, which typically are used during crop inspection. Lumileds will continue to offer the line of Luxeon SunPlus 20 LEDs to customers that prefer a 150° radiation pattern. Both LEDs are listed in the Lumileds Horticulture Lighting Calculator to test LED configurations prior to building fixtures. Users can select one LED combination that matches a crop’s requirements or adjust the light spectrum through different stages of plant growth.
