New greenhouse light automatically dims or brightens to complement natural light

California Lightworks announces a new supplemental LED light for greenhouse grows: the GHPro 340.

This high-efficiency, spectrum variable LED light gives greenhouse growers optimum control over their growth cycle and product. Equipped with photosensors to read the levels of natural light, the GHPro 340 automatically dims or brightens to complement the natural light available to your crop. The unit features a thin profile to limit shadowing and ensure an even spread across the entire canopy.

Higher ROI
Growers who support their greenhouse crop with LED lighting have reported increasing their yields by as much as 40%.

The reasons for this are simple. Supplemental LED lighting allows you to extend your days, extend your growing season, and bathe your plants with light for an even yield all year round. You can also eliminate shaded areas and enjoy control over your crop’s access to light even on overcast days and darker seasons.

The GH Pro 340, in particular, comes with variable spectrum control, which means you can adjust your light spectrum for the needs of your specific plants and their current stage of growth. A variable spectrum also helps you guide plants through the grow cycle more quickly and gives you control over your plants’ perception of the season. This feature is also your key to controlling the chemical profile of your product for higher potency and undeniable quality.

Control over light spectrum and crop
Not only does the GH Pro 340 allow you to adjust the LED light spectrum according to the needs of your plants, but it also communicates wirelessly with photosensors to automatically balance light levels with the light available from the sun. This feature allows you to create an unlimited number of variable zones according to the season.

As for managing the light spectrum itself, the GH Pro offers wireless digital spectrum control through our exclusive Bluetooth mesh application. The GH Pro 340, the application, and the photosensors all work together through local and cloud-based data communication to help you maintain the perfect light levels and spectrum for your plants. No guesswork. No experimentation. The GH Pro 340 is designed to help you get it right immediately so you can start to see higher yields and a better ROI immediately.

Comparison with other supplemental lighting options
With an efficiency of up to 3.0 umol/j, this light consumes as much as 50% less heat and electricity than HPS lights. The GHPro 340 also lasts much longer, with a lifespan of 50,000 hours (the average HPS bulb needs to be changed in as little as 5000 hours).

Growers who choose the GHPro 340 also save big on installation costs. There is no external driver or ballast. It features precut waterproof cables and automatic voltage recognition for 90-277v. This chainable light allows for installation of up to 10 lights from a single power drop. Plus, thanks to the wireless controls mentioned above, there is no need for contractor panels. The GH Pro 340 can be installed at a fraction of the cost of any other lighting alternatives, especially other LED lighting options.
