The new polycarbonate design is half the weight of its predecessor with a wider optic producing a 150 degree photon distribution. The 48 Watt Extra-48 has a PPF of 100 μmol/s and an efficacy of 2.2 μmol/J. The combination of performance and lighter weight yields additional versatility to cultivators.

"The Extra-48 is designed to make inter-canopy lighting more approachable for cultivators," says Rick Nathans, CEO of SpecGrade LED. "The lighter weight fixture, while being available for up to 277V and maintaining its IP66 rating, contributes more flexibility for mounting, making it useful in almost any style greenhouse or indoor horticulture operation."

Inter-canopy lighting has been implemented for decades within the tomato industry, improving the quality and size of yields. The new Extra-48 offers the same potential to cannabis and other horticulture operations. The Extra-48's tubular body style allow the individual light tubes to rotate independently up to 360 degrees. Cultivators can easily position the Extra-48 exactly where they desire additional lighting for their plants.

SpecGrade LED's Extra

Like all of SpecGrade LED's horticulture lighting, the Extra-48 is IP66 and UL8800 rated for horticulture environments and passively cooled. The Extra-48 is compatible with 0-10 Volt dimmers and daisy-chainable. The industry standard 5-year LED and Driver warranty ensures cultivators will enjoy this high quality grow light for years.

IDS NXT ocean: grab, label, train, run AI

Artificial intelligence can be used, for example, to classify fruit varieties or to identify damaged parts, e.g. apples with marks or color deviations. To cover all possible variances with classical image processing would be very time-consuming and costly. With artificial intelligence, however, these challenges can be solved in no time at all. IDS NXT ocean is a user-friendly all-one-one system which requires neither special knowledge in deep learning nor camera programming. Only sample images and knowledge on how to evaluate them (e.g. "good apples" / "bad apples") are needed. This makes the start into AI-based image processing particularly easy. Camera hardware, software, infrastructure and support come from a single company. For beginners, IDS offer the IDS NXT ocean Creative Kit, which includes all components and workflows to create, train and run a neural net.
