In a normal year the team with Current, a Daintree company, would have shined at the tradeshows these months. And not just the team - also their new fixture would have. Now we're happy to show it via our screens: here's the Arize Lynk². "Our next generation indoor vertical farming fixture," Colin Woodford with Current says.
"The new fixture is designed for multi-layer leafy green, microgreen and propagation applications," he adds. "The Lynk² builds on the success of the first generation, providing more light, spectra, and flexibility than ever before."
9 Spectra and better uniformity
Colin shows what is new with the dimmable Arize Lynk². "The Lynk² features four all-new spectra: two broad spectrum options, BRI and BRV, for versatility in any growing environment, along with two far red spectra, PPF and PFK, which encourage a stretching and expansion response."
Better uniformity and more efficient
Optical design improvements widen the light distribution by 6°, while the new side connector of the Arize Lynk² extends the useable lighting surface by 2.5 inches, improving edge uniformity at canopy level.
"At up to 3.2 μmol/J, the Lynk² is up to 15% more efficient than its predecessor," Colin calculates "With a 54,000-hour L90, the Lynk² features a 50% longer lifetime than the previous generation."
"Finally, we redesigned the connector on the Lynk², which not only increases the useable lighting surface, but when coupled with new splitter accessories, allows for 52 fixtures per junction box in a single run, a 100% increase in loading. This slashes installation labor costs."
Deliveries beginning late Q1 in North America and late Q2 in EU/UK.
