Wave for Horticultural Lighting

 

With a need to feed 2 billion more people by 2050, it has never been more critical for crop cultivation and food production to become efficient and sustainable. To support this, there have been numerous developments in indoor, urban and vertical farming, and with it the use of artificial lighting and LEDs.

 

As more is known about the interaction between light and the growth of plants and crops, there is a prominent focus across the horticultural industry on how to measure and monitor the quality of light, to help achieve greater efficiency and sustainability.

 

This is where WaveGo comes in, providing the ability to turn complex light data into actionable tasks.

Wave for Growers

With the handheld WaveGo, you can actively and accurately collect full spectral photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) information to make informed decisions about the lighting for your plants. The ability to make smart use of light ensures growers can optimise the growth of their plants and crops.

Easily, accurately, and quickly determine the impact of LED lights on plant growth. Check your readings instantly on your smartphone for a real-time understanding or log data to see how your light recipe changes over time.

All data from the device is stored in the WaveCloud platform so you can continuously make improvements to your lighting.

 

 

 

Benefits

  • Get critical performance insights to optimize your growing environment
  • Increase yields and enhance nutritional value by adjusting light performance
  • Discover opportunities to reduce your energy bill and carbon footprint

 

 

Applications

  • Measure LED lighting performance
  • Compare impact of light sources
  • Verify light consistency
  • Analyse lighting in different areas of the greenhouse/planting area

Wave for Horticultural Lighting Companies

The WaveGo is providing horticultural lighting companies with a quick and easy way to measure light quality.

Use it to facilitate innovation in R&D, as well as easily demonstrating the technical capabilities of your solution to your customers. Field teams can use the WaveGo to efficiently commission lighting installations, proving solution quality and reassuring customers they have the light that they paid for.

Light data recorded in our WaveCloud can be integrated into your system via API, delivering increased capabilities for your lighting solution. Calibrate or commission your system with the WaveGo or use the PixelSensor as a fully integrated PAR sensor in a dynamic lighting system.

 

 

Benefits

  • Accelerate development and delivery of new grow light systems
  • Increase sales by showing customers the value of your solution
  • Increase efficiency and quality of installation commissioning
  • Improve solution capabilities = more value to your customers

 

Applications

  • R&D for new lighting innovations
  • Show the performance of your solution to your customers
  • Commissioning tool for lighting installation
  • Integrated sensor as part of dynamic lighting system

 

Impact

Agricultural Research With the WaveGo

‘We purchased two of the WaveGo spectrometers for testing at our R&D facilities. These innovative devices are instrumental in helping us to better understand light quality and intensity.

Using the WaveGo, we can compare light inside of our protected crop growing structures with ambient light outside the structure. This ensures we can make the critical changes needed to achieve an optimal growing environment.’
