Source: Fluence BioengineeringFluence Bioengineering Inc. has introduced three new horticulture light emitting diode (LED) lighting solutions designed for quick deployment in vertically controlled farms.

The Fluence SPYDR series are high intensity, small form factor LEDs for vegetative and flowering stages of cannabis crops. The lighting converts energy photosynthetic photon flux (PPF) with levels of lighting efficacy of up to 2.7 micromoles/Joule and designed for photobiologic response in plants.

Fluence said the LED systems are foldable and can be positioned to deliver uniform levels of photosynthetic photo flux density to each plant and produce higher crop yields per square foot of plant canopy.

The series includes three LED products: the SPYDR 2x is for vegetation and early bloom growth stages of cannabis; the SPYDR 2p is for the bloom growth stage of cannabis; and the SPYDR 2i offers the highest levels of light intensity and efficacy.

The series is certified with the ETL Mark and IP66 rating to withstand watering and nutrient dispersal in harsh environments.
