IP65 Certified LED Grow Lights for Greenhouse Applications

,

Indoor grow facilities on an industrial scale are unique and complex environments for sensitive electrical fixtures like LED grow lights.  The use of soil, water, and liquid chemicals combined with other organic dust in the air surrounding flowering plants combine to create a significant hazard to lighting fixtures not designed to withstand these harsh conditions for long periods of time. Fortunately, SpecGrade LED engineers factored these environmental concerns into our calculations when designing our latest LED grow lights, resulting in fixtures that achieved the Ingress Protection rating of 65. Now considered suitable for horticulture facilities, SpecGrade LED grow lights are ready for continuous high-performance use in your cultivation center.

The Ingress Protection (IP) Rating System

The Ingress Protection rating system was established by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to rate the ability of electronic fixtures to prevent the ingress of solids and liquids into the equipment housing.

Products earn an IP code, comprised of the letters IP followed by two digits (example: IP65). Each digit designates the degree of protection the product is designed to provide against the intrusion of environmental contaminants. The first number signifies the level of protection against solid particles like dust and dirt. The second number represents the level of protection against liquids. The higher the value of each digit, the more robust the defense provided by the product.

 

 

This handy rating system is a quick-reference code for specifiers to determine how suitable a lighting fixture is for their given growing environment. It’s important to invest in lighting equipment that will stand the test of time and provide an ample return on investment.

LED Grow Lights Certified for Damp Environments

All SpecGrade LED Grow Lights are certified for use in damp and wet locations with an IP65 rating, indicating that these fixtures are protected against liquid intrusion from condensation, falling drops, sprays, splashes, and even low-pressure water jets from any direction. Additionally, the aluminum and copper materials in the fixtures resist normal rust and corrosion that can shorten the lifespan of a typical grow light system.

With the electrical connections and electronic circuit boards safely and securely sealed, the use of water and liquid chemicals does not threaten the functionality of SpecGrade LED Grow Lights, making our fixtures suitable for use in facilities with overhead or directional watering systems. They can also be cleaned with a power washer with no risk of electrical damage. So, specify rugged SpecGrade LED grow lights and spray away!
