Osram is showcasing LED prototype to promote healthy plant growth
At this year’s Lightfair in Philadelphia (USA), Osram Opto Semiconductors is showcasing an LED prototype to promote healthy plant growth: the Oslon Square Hyper Red. This third-generation 2 watt LED features improved emission characteristics, higher optical output and impressive corrosion resistance, so plant lighting systems based on the Oslon Square Hyper Red can be made particularly economical.
Plants essentially need water and light in order to grow. By using light emitting diodes (LEDs) with different wavelengths, commercial growers are now able to control each individual stage of plant growth. With a wavelength of 660 nanometers (nm) the prototype of the Oslon Square Hyper Red, for example, can control the growth of blossom. Together with the deep blue (450 nm) and far red (730 nm) versions, the Oslon family from Osram Opto Semiconductors perfectly covers the entire spectrum of plant growth.
