Enhancing Plant Growth using LED Light:

Located at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, the lab's team of dedicated researchers led by Dr. R. Glen Uhrig are working around the clock to unlock the mystery surrounding signalling events that control plant growth and development.

How Growers Can Protect Against Rising Energy Prices and Switch to LED Lighting

If you're a grower who's concerned about the ongoing surge in energy prices, switching to LED lighting is a simple step you can take to mitigate against rising costs in the meantime.

Indoor Agriculture: Driving up LED Efficiency to Reduce the Costs of Artificial Sun

Increasing lighting efficiency can make a big difference to running costs. This is one of the reasons driving the move to replace traditional lighting solutions with LEDs in recent years.

Switching Up Indoors - Why Growers World-wide Are Upgrading to LEDs

52% of commercial growers reported using LEDs as of 2020-an increase from 25% in 2016. This trend is expected to continue in the next decade. The sharp rise in LED-use among commercial growers is really two-fold: energy savings and complete optimization.

Choosing the Right LEDs for Your Greenhouse

Plants respond differently to various spectra so choosing the best LEDs for you will depend on your specific cultivation goals and crops, location and climate, and several other key considerations.

HYBRID LIGHTING STRATEGIES: ADVANTAGES, DISADVANTAGES AND GETTING STARTED

Research on the ideal lighting for greenhouse cultivation reveals a fundamental truth: LED systems are far more efficient and effective than their HPS counterparts.

What to Look for in a Greenhouse Light Plan

When it comes to lighting a greenhouse or any indoor grow facility, the number of factors to consider can seem overwhelming. Should you choose intelligent LEDs? Should you go old-school with HPS?

The Absorption and Action Spectrum and the Benefits of Green Light

Light has a complex relationship with plants. When the light touches a leaf, it can be absorbed by, reflected from, or transmitted through to other leaves. Plants appear green to us because they reflect and transmit slightly more green light than they do blue or red.

Supplemental Greenhouse Lighting: Hacking the Sun to Grow Your Business

Growers who are able to optimize the supplemental light they provide to plants can eliminate seasonal changes in production cycles, increase crop production, ensure crop consistency and grow quality plants year-round.

4-Sun LED Solar Simulator Dawns to Tackle Humanity's Challenges

Solar simulators-indoor lights that reproduce the sun's spectrum-take many forms and serve different purposes, including testing sunscreens, solar cell efficiencies and performance testing of aerospace materials.

10 Groundbreaking Insights From the Latest Research on Light Spectra for Cannabis

In collaboration with Wageningen University & Research and Compassionate Cultivation, Fluence is proud to announce the findings of a series of groundbreaking photobiology research studies examining how light spectra affect cannabis growth and development.

Patented Lighting System Installs in a Fraction of The Time at a Fraction of the Cost

By removing LED drivers from individual light fixtures, the new MegaDrive™ eliminates the need for electrical power connections throughout the greenhouse or grow room while significantly reducing up-front costs.

Horticulture Lighting Metrics: Understand Grow Lights

Choosing the best grow light for your facility is essential to growing healthy plants and getting a maximum return from your investment.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
