Plessey announces the launch of its new Hyperion Inter Light. The Inter Light fixture has been designed to provide intra canopy light from LEDs for high wire cultivation of greenhouse vegetables and is installed within the crop to supplement existing top lighting.
The Inter Light is suitable for use in hybrid systems with HPS and LEDs, promoting plant growth and fruit ripening speed. With a choice of light outputs and efficacy to suit different growing environments, the Inter Light also provides wide beam angle for optimum light penetration.
The Inter Light system comes with a 5 year warranty. Installation is simple and cost-effective with plug and play connections, daisy-chaining up to 20 fixtures together and simple mounting on wires that can be raised and lowered.
The Inter Light hangs within the canopy of high wire crops, providing light at optimised spectrums and also acts as an extra heating pipe to deliver higher yields from less energy.
Jonathan Barton, Director of Grow Lighting at Plessey, explained: “Placing lighting within the canopy of high wire plants is a way to increase light levels and yields in greenhouses that already have supplementary top lighting.”
Plessey’s Hyperion Grow Lights including the new Hyperion Inter Light will be showcased at Fruit Logistica in hall 8.1 at stand B-10 between 6 – 8 February in Berlin, Germany. The Hyperion Grow Lights team will also be exhibiting at HortiContact (19 – 21 February 2019) and GreenTech (11 – 13 June 2019)
