Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. of Shulin, New Taipei City Taiwan is exhibiting its comprehensive portfolio of agricultural lighting LEDs at LIGHTFAIR International. The company is showcasing its high-power, medium-power, and low-power LED products for agricultural applications.
Everlight notes that different environments, animals, and plants need various combinations to achieve maximum productivity along with energy savings. For this reason, Everlight says it has developed a portfolio of agriculture LEDs with full wavelength coverage ranging from 450nm ~ 730nm. According to the firm, the most sought after packages for the market now are high-power ceramic based LEDs with domed lenses. Everlight also contends that such LED packages deliver maximum performance and control total heat in the lighting system.
Performance of Agricultural LED Packages
Everlight’s package solution for agricultural applications the EAHP3535 series measures 3.5×3.5×2.03mm. The Royal Blue (450nm) package operates at up to 4.5W with an output over 2.925 W for an efficacy of over 65%. The Deep Red (660nm) also has an efficacy of over 65% and can obtain a high Photosynthetic Photon Flux (PPF) of 4.7 μmol/sec that optimizes photosynthesis for accelerated plant growth. Additionally, Everlight has created two medium-power LEDs, EAHP3030
(3.0×3.0x0.63mm) and EAHP2835 (2.8×3.5×0.65mm) that are perfect for vertical farming or plant factories.
With this portfolio, customers can select their appropriate lighting solutions according to the wavelength, power, and size. Lifetime is another important trait of lighting for agricultural applications. EverLight says it is one of the first LED manufacturers that have put monochromatic LEDs through LM-80 testing to provide accurate LED lifespans.
