Adding supplemental LED lighting within the canopy of high wire crops is proven to encourage plant growth, accelerate fruit ripening speed and substantially increase yield. The Integral features a bidirectional 120° beam angle, immersing lower leaves on both sides of the fixture in light, and best-in-class efficacy of 3.5 μmol/J, for more sustainable growth.
Easy and Flexible Installation
Installation is straightforward and cost-effective: Choose from a single- or double-layer installation, and simply hang the fixtures within the canopy. Up to 165 Integral fixtures can be daisy-chained together, further reducing installation time and labor.
Engineered for the Field
Arize Integral is IP66 and Wet Location rated, meaning it remains safe, efficacious and reliable even in humid and wet environments. Protected by our standard five-year warranty and greater than 54,000 hour (L90) lifetime, this state-of-the-art intra-canopy lighting fixture is the basis of consistent high yields for years to come.
Choosing a Spectrum
Fixtures and spectrum recommended for common horticulture crops
PPB or PKB as Blue promotes root creation. If you want to maximize your electrical efficacy (µmol/j), your choice is PPB. PKB will be more comfortable to the workers’ eyes.
PPR or PKR as red promotes biomass and flowering. If you want to maximize your electrical efficacy (µmol/j), your choice is PPB. PKB will be more comfortable to the workers’ eyes.
PPB or PKB because more Blue tends to keep the crop in a vegetative state and shorter in size.
PKR because cannabis secondary metabolite seems to be stimulated by the green portion of light while the low blue to red ratio seems to promote flowering in biomass development.
PPB or PKB will work well and allow growers to reduce plant growth regulators.
Any spectrum will work, but high blue will keep the seedlings from stretching.
PKR is very safe for all berry crops. Intensity will be most important.
Vine crops/ Supplemental lighting
PPR for supplemental lighting in the greenhouse. Academic studies (University of Arizona & Michigan) tend to agree that the best spectrum for greenhouse lighting is the most efficient one in efficacy thus higher micromols/joule should be considered. Tomatoes: PPR – Bell Peppers: PKB (Harrow research center) – Cucumber should be PKR. If in doubt choose PKR. It will work in every situation.
