Lumileds LLC of San Jose, CA, USA has introduced the LUXEON SunPlus 2835 line of LEDs, which provide the color options and high photosynthetic photon flux (PPF) needed to maximize plant growth rate and crop yield of a variety of plants and vegetables.

Growers can select specific color points or design a customized spectrum using what is claimed to be the only LEDs specifically engineered for horticulture applications. The LED’s compact 2.8mm x 3.5mm footprint allows minimal spacing between plants and lighting so that higher crop yield can be realized in interweaving canopy or vertical farm applications, says the firm. The LEDs are offered off-the-shelf or configured in the Lumileds Matrix Platform for faster time to market of lighting fixtures.

Growers can choose a specific color point using LUXEON SunPlus 2835 Purple or Horticulture White LEDs, or design a spectrum using the LUXEON SunPlus 2835 Deep Red, Far Red, Lime and Royal Blue emitters.

Horticulture White provides a suitable broad spectrum for growing many different crops. In tests, Horticulture White produced red leaf lettuce with significantly greater nutrient levels than RGB LEDs, claims Lumleds.

LUXEON SunPlus Purple LEDs are made with a customized phosphor solution designed to provide the maximum PPF output in the Deep Red and Royal Blue range of the spectrum. “We are seeing great demand for Purple LEDs in vertical farms,” says product line director Jennifer Holland. “When the Purple LEDs are combined with Lime, a white color point is achieved, enabling ease of visual inspection and harvest.”

The LUXEON SunPlus 2835 Series LEDs are said to solve an industry challenge by matching polarity across all of the colors in the product range, simplifying the PCB layout and system design. Emitters are binned at 120mA (25°C) but can be driven at up to 480mA for greater lumen output and fewer LEDs per fixture. Lumileds claims to be the only supplier that bins all its horticultural LEDs by PPF.
