Luminus introduces online horticulture LED calculator

Luminus Devices Inc of Sunnyvale, CA, USA – which designs and makes LEDs and solid-state technology (SST) light sources for illumination markets – says that its new horticulture calculator offers system engineers the opportunity to choose from over 30 of Luminus’ horticulture LEDs and create their own ‘recipe’ for specific luminaires and to save and output a complete LED bill of materials. System designers can select multiple LEDs and establish operating conditions, including current and junction temperature, and calculate for photosynthetic photon flux (PPF), optical power and electrical power. Engineers can test virtually unlimited variations and immediately see spectral and performance data, the firm says.

“Our extensive portfolio of horticulture LEDs span the photo biological spectrum from 360nm to 800nm+,” says Yves Bertic, senior director of global product marketing. “And, with three package platforms and five product families, it’s easy for our customers to select the best combination of LEDs to achieve the specific PPF or PPF per Watt that they need,” he adds. “With this new calculator, users can create custom solutions and see in real time how changes in their LED product mix will affect key luminaire parameters.”

By using the free horticulture calculator, users can evaluate and compare the results of using mid-power and/or high-power LEDs, packaged LEDs and/or COBs, and ultimately produce a bill of materials with specific part numbers for the mix that serves them best, says Luminus.
