How do we better produce food in the quality and quantity needed to feed the world?
Horticultural lighting offers an innovative way of producing food in a controlled environment, often close to large markets in urban centers. Precise LED light and advanced sensing solutions provide new possibilities for growing food in a smart, easy and sustainable way. They offer the possibility to adapt to the needs of different plants, monitoring their growth, optimizing harvests, minimizing fertilizer use and reducing energy costs. This makes LED-based horticulture solutions a proof point for how our lives can be improved by technology.
ams OSRAM is a global leader in professional LED horticulture lighting and sensing. Optimized LEDs and spectral sensors from our extensive product portfolio enable superior plant growth for whatever optimized growing recipe. Highest efficiency luminaires minimize energy consumption, which is key at a time of exploding energy costs and energy-saving constraints. Best in class illumination uniformity of our LEDs allows for luminaires closer to the crops and could save additional energy compared to traditional luminaires with secondary optics. Lowest possible overall system cost results from highest power LEDs reducing number of LEDs required per square meter, supported by unmatched illumination uniformity for luminaires without need for secondary optics, and long-life performance. The overdrive capability up to twice the nominal power class and low thermal resistance of our LEDs provide maximum design flexibility at optimum efficacy.
