It's more than 30 years history that we using lights as an integral part of horticulture, almost all cultivators are accustomed to High Pressire Sodium (HPS), Metal Halide, Fluorescent Tubes and Incandescent Lights. As we find out that the Light Emitting Diode (LED) with a higher intensity, lower power consumption and longer lifespan, this technology is replacing the old technologies step by step in growing.
LED grow lights, combining precise spectral outputs, advanced optics, and thermal management engineering to convert nearly 100% of consumed power into growth-targeted light energy, are a truly remarkable feat of technology and are by far the most efficient lighting type available. LED grow lights are able to produce larger yields while consuming far less energy than their HPS counterparts, as they are requiring very little maintenance aside from occasional cleaning, generating less heat but better heat dissipation fuctions.
As a 4*4 feet cultivate area need one set of 1100W HPS light, now a 600W LED grow light set can be your best choice as a replacement.
The LED Grow Light can reach upto 2.6 μmol/J, which also means a higher rate of exchanging the power consumed to useful lights.
Less heat release and better cooling system can not only save your electricity consumption, but also save your expenses in cooling system, water supply and so on.
Normally you will need to change the HPS light bulb every 12 monthes, but now you do not need to worry about LED bulb changing for the longest 60 monthes.
Today, the best LED grow lights can rival the production of HPS lights that use nearly twice the wattage. And thanks for the lower room temperature adapting to LED grow lights, it can save growers a lot in watering, cooling systems and fertilizer supplies in addition to electricity. The integrated design saves a lot of complicated installation procedures and costs required for subsequent maintenance, and super-low light temperature ensures that it can be placed closer to plants in confined areas with very little risk of heat damage.
