In the plant lighting market, LED plant grow lights and plant sodium lamps are currently mainly used, but more and more LED plant lights are gradually replacing high-pressure sodium lamps, because LED plant lights have many advantages over plant sodium lamps, making LED plant lights suitable for plants. Occupying an increasing share of the lighting market, it will certainly become the choice of most plant lighting.Here are the main features to share with you.
1.Energy saving and environmental protection.
LEDs are made of compounds such as gallium, arsenic, phosphorus, and nitrogen. They do not contain heavy metals such as mercury. They are environmentally friendly and have a high safety index. The sodium lamp is generally composed of mercury, sodium, xenon arc tube wick, glass bulb, getter lamp holder and other components. Once the lamp is damaged, mercury and other harmful substances are not treated in time, and people are exposed to high mercury environment for a long time. It can cause brain damage or death.
In addition, the LED plant grow light uses solid semiconductor chips as the luminescent material, with low light decay. When the luminous flux is attenuated to 80%, the life span can reach more than 25,000 hours. The sodium lamp uses the electric arc to generate an arc between the two ends of the arc tube, and its life is longer than that of the LED. The LED plant light should be short.
2.Low heat radiation, avoid plant "high temperature damage.
"High temperature damage" is also called "heat damage", which is the physiological damage of plants caused by excessive temperature. This will lead to the deterioration of plant protein, damage to the biofilm structure, disturbance of metabolism in the body, and abnormal phenomena such as leaf burns, plant wilting, and flower shedding.
According to the law of conservation of energy, experiments have found that the ability of LEDs and sodium lamps to convert electrical energy into light energy and heat energy is different. Using the same energy, the LED plant grow light as a cold light source will produce more light and less heat, while the sodium lamp with a hot light source will produce a lot of heat and less light while illuminating.
Therefore, compared with the two kinds of lamps, the LED plant grow light not only saves energy, but also converts more energy into light energy, providing effective photosynthetic radiation for plants, and at the same time, it can effectively avoid plant "high temperature damage" and help users reduce planting risks.
3.Wavelength types rich, good fill light effect.
As an important factor for plant growth, light plays a very important role. After research, it is found that the spectral energy distribution of sodium lamps can be roughly divided into red-orange light, yellow-green light, and blue-violet light (a small amount). LED plant growth lights can emit monochromatic light with narrow light waves, such as red, green, blue, orange, etc., and these monochromatic lights can be used in combination, for example: LED light sources with mixed wavelengths can promote lettuce, basil and other seedlings and roots Growth and development, shorten the cycle of plant flowering and fruiting, and increase the accumulation of sugar beet and starch; different ratios of red and blue spectrum can meet the requirements of different stages of plant growth, coloring, flowering, and fruiting.
In summary, LED plant grow lights have more advantages than sodium lights in terms of performance, lifespan, and effects, and are more worthy of purchase by growers. Because of this, more and more companies have devoted themselves to the field of plant lighting. Among them, there is a footprint of Chuangxinjia. Over the years, Chuangxinjia’s various LED plant grow lights have been highly recognized by customers. On the road of future development, Chuangxinjia will always insist on producing good products and providing good services.
