Revolution Micro, an Atlanta-based horticultural lighting manufacturer, has created the first line of instrument-grade LED fixtures.
The impact of this horticultural LED line goes beyond simply growing better crops. It was designed from the ground up to be a long-lasting fixture that could adapt to suit any cultivation need. Its programmable spectrum allows cultivators to mimic the lighting needs of any plant, in any season, anywhere in the world. This helps cultivators target phytochemical development to create healthier, tastier, more aromatic, and nutritional crops by manipulating the spectrum under which they're grown. With every season available at the touch of a button, it saves cultivators the time and labor typically spent moving plants to new rooms for their next stage of growth, resulting in more energy-efficient growing.
This advancement into programmable spectrum also means the highly flexible lights won't become outdated as research into the effect of light spectrum on plants continues. This, in combination with its 150,000-hour lifespan, a dramatic improvement from the 50,000-hour lifespan, means the systems will need to be replaced far less frequently than others on the market, leading to fewer fixtures being thrown away each year.
"Beyond considering the significant price of replacing lighting systems several times, growers concerned with operating sustainably should also consider the impact of all of those short-lived fixtures ending up in landfills," says Marisa McRainey, CEO of Revolution Micro. "The Avici Series saves money, energy, and waste while providing a commercial-grade programmable spectrum – taking it from a lab demonstration to an industry standard."
"We're proud to bring new levels of innovation, quality, and precision to controlled environment agriculture," he adds. "All Revolution products are completely designed and engineered in-house; no copies, clones, or licensed designs. Everything is manufactured in their automotive and aerospace-qualified ISO-certified factory in Thailand."
