VYNE inter-canopy lighting

VYNE inter-canopy lighting
Innovation

Fluence by Osram is introducing the new VYNE inter-canopy lighting (ICL) .

The VYNE modules will be available in 2,5 metre and 2 metre versions, and feature not only the traditional high red / low blue spectrum, but also Fluence’s popular R6 broad white spectrum. Efficacies range from 3,0 µmol/J for the broad R6, to 3,3 µmol/J for the R9B spectrum, with ppf of 120 µmol s-1 per meter bar length.

Guido van het Hof knew his greenhouse could do more. Grow more. A student of plant science, van het Hof and his team at Great Northern Hydroponics have been growing more than 10 varieties of tomatoes in Ontario, Canada, for more than 20 years. For van het Hof, decades of greenhouse experience have demonstrated the benefits of assimilation lighting, but could tradition be enhanced in the quest to optimize the farm’s more than 20 million pounds of tomatoes per year? After installing Fluence’s VYPR solution with broad R4 spectra across 10 acres of his tomato glasshouse, van het Hof was able to increase production and save on energy costs.

The ECF Farm Berlin (ECF Farmsystems) is an innovative urban-farm leveraging greenhouse and vertical farm cultivation techniques to produce potted plants. The facility utilizes aquaponics to naturally fertilize its crops for the second largest supermarket chain in Germany. ECF Farmsystems has a unique approach to grow more with less. By using the synergistic production of aquaculture and hydroponic-style plant cultivation in one environment, ECF Farmsystems is able to reduce the amount of resources to produce its fresh, high-quality produce. Fluence LED lighting help ECF Farmsystems to produce year-round, which results in the production of consistent and uniform harvests to its customers. Additionally, Fluence lighting solutions dramatically cut down on the use land in ECF Farmsystems’ urban farm, enabling the facility to yield 35% more crops than before on the same real estate footprint. Producing More with Less – Holistic lighting solution from propagation to greenhouse ensures year-round production of consistent, aromatic basil throughout the growth cycle Seed-to-Table Urban Farming – Onsite propagation on VertiCCs leads to 35% more production on same foot print and optimize supply chain from seed to table Consistent and Uniform Products – ECF Farmsystems can has full control throughout the growth cycle and experiences less impact from pests, while also offering the ability to forecast yields more accurately Interested to find out more?

Fluence runs it´s second year of research at Delphy studying how Fluence’s LED lighting solutions impact strawberry production in greenhouses. Traditionally grown in outdoor fields, strawberries are temperature-sensitive crops, restricting growers in the northern hemisphere to limited seasonal production cycles. The research trial aims to examine industry-leading best practices for efficiently growing strawberries in a controlled environment by introducing supplemental lighting. Greenhouse growers have shown increasing interest in switching from legacy systems such as high-pressure sodium lighting to LED fixtures to analyze how various light spectra affect crop quality and consistency. The study focuses on June-bearing strawberry cultivars—popular among European growers for their sweetness and cost in comparison to ever-bearing varieties—under a variety of Fluence’s PhysioSpec™️ spectra offerings.

Norway is located in Northern Europe. This means that natural sunlight is limited to just a few hours during the winter months. Without a supplemental lighting strategy, commercial growing in this region would be impossible. While cucumber production thrives in the summer, Norwegian markets face a shortage during winter months due to a limited local supply. The lack of natural light hinders many retailers’ ability to source locally and, in the end, leads to more imported crops. Solbergs Gartneri is on a mission to grow more produce and maximize energy efficiencies. By collaborating with the cucumber specialist from Fluence’s horticulture service team, together we designed a lighting plan that addressed and resolved their current challenges with high-pressure sodium lamps (HPS). While the radiant heat that is emitted from HPS lamps limits how much light you can supplement and how close a fixture can be from the plants, LEDs are able to decouple the heat and light in the process. In other words, LED solutions not only allow for greater flexibility when establishing mounting height in low ceilings, but they also enable growers to increase light levels without damaging or burning the plants.

NEW!RAZR Modular System for Vertical Farming

NEW!RAZR Modular System for Vertical Farming

Pioneered the LED solutions for vertical farming with RAZR series, Fluence has developed a new generation product, RAZR Modular System, that is more versatile than ever in meeting various lighting needs for today’s sophisticated vertical farming.

Customizable - The new RAZR Modular System features customizable light bar spacing, allowing to deliver light uniformity with minimum number of light bars for both low- and high-density shelving. Combining that with customizable bar wattage (or PPF per bar), this RAZR Modular System can reduce the light bar quantity for a wide range of crop DLIs, across growth stages from tissue culture, propagation to vegetative. The versatility will help growers to drastically reduce their capital investment.

Replaceable and Flexible Mounting - With a large selection of mounting accessories and plug & play cables the new RAZR Modular System is highly configurable, and easily installed in vertical racks, Danish trolleys, mobile carts, or growth chambers. Each light bar is replaceable, which will help reduce maintenance cost during farm operations.

High Efficacy in Broad White - Fluence’s years of experience with vertical farm growers has proven our BROAD R3M spectrum (formerly known as PhysioSpec™ ) is the best spectral choice for propagation and vertical cultivation of a multitude of leafy greens, microgreens, herbs and other vegetables. The new RAZR Modular System continues to offer this popular spectrum, and has a market leading efficacy of 2.6 µmol/J on a standard 25-watt bar. This provides 18% more energy saving than the previous RAZR Series.
