All of SpecGrade LED’s grow lighting fixtures are developed with precision grade optics, a robust passive thermal management system, and a modular design enabling growers to simply change out the printed circuit board as technology advances making the OpticPAR line a major step forward in the world of professional LED grow lighting.
The revolutionary OpticPAR Technology is specified to emit the ideal spectrum of light for plant cultivation, offering maximum levels of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) throughout the growing cycle.
Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density, or PPFD, measures the amount of useful PAR that actually reaches a plant. SpecGrade’s advanced lighting optics give growers the best opportunity to adjust PPFD with directional lenses, reflectors, and other advanced optics that direct as much of an LED source’s light energy onto a plant’s growing surfaces as possible, including the plant’s upper leaf canopy and its undergrowth. This eliminates light loss, further reducing energy consumption during the grow cycle, and maximizes the resulting yield.
The LED circuit boards and electronic controls in all of SpecGrade LED’s grow light systems have been engineered to fit into an integrated LED aluminum/stainless steel housing that resists degradation or failure due to moisture or water damage. The proprietary 100% passive cooling technology eliminates the need for motorized fans or other mechanical cooling devices that can fail in high-humidity greenhouse environments. The 3/8” thick substrate and heat sinking will ensure low LED junction temperature and sustained lumen performance.
All OpticPARLED grow light systems are rated to perform at above 70% of their initial lighting quality for up to 100,000 hours of continuous use. Because these LED lighting systems operate at lower physical temperatures than traditional indoor lighting, the fixtures can be placed closer to plant surfaces to generate higher PPFD levels and ensure proper light saturation.
“This level of precision engineering offers growers a greater degree of control over their PAR levels and growing conditions, which has produced a marked increase in yields for crops of all kinds,” comments the company’s CEO, Rick Nathans.
While this advanced line of high performance LED grow luminaires is setting new standards in the cultivation industry, they’re also designed with the end user in mind. With a modular housing design, the fixtures are easy to install and allow facility managers to quickly pop out the LED circuit board for replacement and upgrade, without removing the fixture from its operable location. Combined with the industry’s only 10 year warranty, OpticPARTM grow lighting fixtures offer future-proof flexibility for rebuilds, retrofits, and long term ROI.
