In many regions, plants suffer from low natural light conditions during wintertime.
Scalar fixtures help to provide sufficient light
intensities or simply prolong the day during these times of year. Depending on the volume
of lights installed, the fixtures can be recommended for both photoperiodic applications (where they are the primary or only source of lighting) or as supplemental lighting.
A good light distribution in the canopies of
rising plants like cucumbers, tomatoes, pepper or cut flowers is essential. A mix of top
lighting (natural sunlight or supplemental light source) and horizontal lighting is helpful
to avoid ‘dark spots’. The Scalar fixtures are perfectly designed to serve lower leaves with
the necessary amount of light without excessive and harmful heat generation.
GROWTH CHAMBERS & MULTILAYERS
Plant production under purely artificial light
conditions is challenging in many aspects. Scalar fixtures combine proper light intensities with balanced spectral characteristics for a number of valuable plant species. The flexible and modular system allows space saving installations close to the canopy. The IP 65 protection class for all parts allows for combining plant production systems and light fixtures in small spaces.
Plant lighting is more than boosting photosynthesis. Plants use light not only as an energy source but also as one of their main sources for environmental information. They react with many adaptations depending on the spectral composition of light in order to survive long term seasonal changes or even short term threats like competitors for resources. Knowing these effects is a powerful tool to induce desirable morphological adaptations.
Raising life from seeds or even from only a
handful of meristematic cells needs special
attention. Depending on the production
goal, we are setting the course for the whole
production chain. Scalar fixtures promote
healthy growth for these early stages without
overwhelming the young and sensitive plants.
