NASA spinoff BIOS announced its next generation of DLC-certified LED Grow Lights. Like any of the BIOS fixtures, Icarus is created with the grower in mind.
"With higher efficacy, great uniformity and long-term performance, BIOS Icarus fixtures provide everything a grower needs to ensure successful production for years to come", says Sean Tegart, President and CEO of BIOS. He adds that the Icarus™ is a game changer for commercial growers. "We've included cleanable glass lenses to ensure maximum light output and uniformity. Also Icarus is P66 wet rated to enable years of operation in harsh growing environments." Then there's the BIOS RapidRack™ mounting system. "This will save up to 12hrs of installation time* with a tool-free mounting system, based on installing 200 Icarus™ Li2 or LLi."
The Icarus light is DLC-certified. "By attaining the DLC listing for these products, growers can rest assured they are purchasing the most reliable, energy efficient and safest products available," says Sean.
Commercial growers purchasing DLC-certified grow lights ensure qualification for state and local energy rebates and incentives and a full 5-year warranty. "DLC listed grow lights provide the grower with accurate third-party performance data, a sense of security and a menu of choices that a grower can trust," says Doug Oppedal, Owner, CEA Lighting Specialist with Doug Oppedal Consulting
Sean adds that having a third-party validation through DLC benefits the market as a whole. “BIOS strongly supports DLC and the service it is providing to the industry. We are proud to offer a full portfolio of DLC-listed products so growers are able to have the best data available when making lighting decisions.” According to him, there are several lighting manufacturers who may be disingenuous in how they present their performance data. “With a DLC listing, a grower can have confidence the data they are being given is what they will see in their facility” he says.
Biological Innovations and Optimization Systems, LLC (BIOS), a NASA spinoff, is an innovator in the biological application of LED lighting for people and plants. "By starting with the plant cell biology and how plants respond to various wavelengths of sunlight, BIOS is able to deliver the perfect biological energy source that plants need to thrive," Sean explains. "Our LED Grow Lights showcase high efficacy and uniformity, long-term performance and ease of use."
