Illumitex announced the new Illumitex HarvestEdge Extra Output (XO) LED Horticultural Fixture. This LED fixture streamlines the design of new construction and/or the retrofitting of new lighting projects in current structures. This one-to-one replacement for high-pressure sodium (HPS) lighting solutions consumes 36% less energy. This translates to either reducing overhead costs for growers, or simply repurposing this energy conservation/savings back into their business, growing their operation to maximize yields. The updated form factor offers a 0-10 dimming capability and proven Wet Rating, helps reduce shadowing in greenhouses and provides several mounting options for increased flexibility based on unique facility and requirements.
“This new product advancement clearly demonstrates two critical aspects behind the Illumitex mission and vision. The first is to consistently test and push the boundaries of horticulture science to continue to produce measurable and sustainable benefits for growers; and secondly, to show how a constant commitment to excellence will further these benefits for both growers and the industry overall,” said Illumitex COO and EVP John Spencer.
