The latest extension of the VYPR series delivers a new level of flexibility and control to growers through dual-channel far-red capability. Adding an independent control channel for far-red light empowers growers with the ability to manipulate crop morphology and increase energy savings, opening new applications for growers of flowers, strawberries and cucumbers. The latest VYPR product is now available as an 800W platform, making it a one-to-one replacement for 1000W HPS fixtures while offering higher light intensity and lower energy consumption.

"The newest generation of Fluence's VYPR product line is built to deliver growers exactly what they've been asking for: greater versatility, enhanced light distribution and higher output to increase crop yield, uniformity and quality," said Graves. "Advancements in our understanding of light spectra have led to a more sophisticated product and a new tool to drive optimal crop performance and profitability."

The latest VYPR product is designed to improve uniformity with wider light distribution, featuring a 150-degree optic across R8, R8F, R9 and R9F light spectra. It maintains a slim form factor and low-profile design but now offers more flexible installation options that make mounting faster and help reduce installation costs.

Particularly small and cost-effective: Market launch of the uEye XLS cameras

Image processing opens up a wide range of possibilities for the automation of modern agriculture - but what to do when only a small budget is available? That is where the uEye XLS comes in. With the launch of these super-small industrial cameras, even price-sensitive applications and volume projects become feasible. Measuring just 29 x 29 x 7 mm, the compact cameras offer excellent imaging characteristics without excessive heat generation, making them a perfect fit for embedded vision applications in agricultural machinery and equipment. The industrial cameras comply with the vision standard and are available with Micro-B connectors and with or without C/CS or S-mount lens holders, further increasing their adaptability to different agricultural environments. Thanks to these features, the cameras offered by IDS Imaging Development Systems lower the barriers to entry and make it easier to explore the potential of vision technology to optimize agricultural processes.
