Is there an industry standard for greenhouse plant supplemental lighting? How to avoid traps when buying?

2021-01-06

Supplemental Plant grow light is an important component of greenhouse lighting environment regulation. With the gradual promotion of China domestic greenhouse plant supplement light applications, it is increasingly used in the cultivation of flowers, fruits, melons, and strawberries in autumn and winter. However, compared with some European and American countries, lack of quality evaluation standards for greenhouse plant supplementary lighting in domestic, coupled with the wide variety and uneven quality of supplemental lights on the market, has led to blind purchases, poor supplementary lighting effects, and energy waste. As a result, the market for plant supplementary lights is chaotic, and the healthy development of the industry is hindered.

Key progress has been made in domestic greenhouse plants supplementing light. The "Technical Specification for Quality Evaluation of Greenhouse Plant Supplementary Lights" (hereinafter referred to as the "Specifications") formulated by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs was finally released and implemented recently after two years of compilation. This means that the domestic greenhouse plant supplement light market has officially clarified the industry entry threshold.

Spesifikasi ini dengan jelas menetapkan terminologi industri, keperluan parameter teras, keperluan kualiti dan keselamatan, kaedah pengujian dan peraturan lampu tambahan tanaman rumah hijau. Ini tidak hanya berlaku untuk penilaian kualiti lampu natrium tekanan tinggi dan lampu LED untuk pertumbuhan tanaman, tetapi juga sumber cahaya lainnya. Lampu tambahan tumbuhan juga boleh merujuk kepada penggunaan.


1.Cstandard larastelah dibuat padaPower, PPF, PPE

Piawaian ini membuat keperluan yang jelas untuk parameter utama produk cahaya tambahan tumbuhan.

First of all, the specification stipulates that the error between the initial power value and the rated power value should not exceed ±10%, which will effectively avoid the phenomenon of industry false standard parameters; the power factor ≥0.90 is required to reduce the impact on the power grid when the facility agriculture uses high power .

Secondly, the specification also provides for photosynthetic photon flux (referred to as PPF, which can be used for plant photosynthesis with a wavelength of 280nm~800nm photon flux), photon flux efficiency (referred to as PPE, The optical characteristics such as the number of photons emitted per unit time) are required to enter threshold performance requirements. It is stipulated that the initial PPF value of high-pressure sodium lamps and LED lamps should not be less than 90% of the nominal value, and the PPE of high-pressure sodium lamps should not be less than 1.0 μmol/(s•W ), the PPE of the LED light is not less than 1.5 μmol/(s•W).

Di samping itu, jangka hayat lampu juga merupakan salah satu prestasi produk yang menjadi perhatian pengguna. Spesifikasi menetapkan bahawa kadar penyelenggaraan fluks foton tidak boleh kurang dari 70% (peluruhan cahaya tidak boleh melebihi 30%) apabila lampu natrium tekanan tinggi dan lampu LED dinyalakan selama 20.000 jam dan 30.000 jam.

2.The identity information of light should be standardized before leaving the factory

Di samping itu, spesifikasi juga memerlukan bahawa lampu harus ditandakan dengan sekurang-kurangnya tanda sumber, voltan undian, daya undian, tanda digital IP, model produk dan maklumat pengenalan lain dari lampu. Tujuannya adalah untuk mengatur pengurusan produk agar pengguna dapat lebih memahami maklumat dan pembelian produk. Pada masa yang sama, adalah lebih penting untuk memberikan sijil pengesahan CCC, ETL, UL dan lain-lain untuk memastikan keselamatan produk.

Pelepasan "Spesifikasi Teknikal untuk Penilaian Kualiti Lampu Tambahan Tanaman Rumah Kaca" akan menetapkan ambang masuk untuk pasaran cahaya tambahan tanaman rumah hijau dan memandu perkembangan sihat dua industri utama penanaman cahaya dan kemudahan tambahan tanaman.



The produk of Teknologi Terang are now better than the industry standard

As a global photo biological system technology provider and a practitioner of overall solutions for plant factories, Teknologi Terang continues to explore the field of greenhouse light supplementation, and all aspects of its product performance are now fully superior to industry standards.

The PPE of Teknologi Terang LED grow light is higher than 2.4 μmol/(s•W). Among them, the MODEL S and Model F series are mainly used in indoor farms or vertical rack farming. The PPE can be as high as 3.0 μmol/(s•W) and large The power factor is ≥0.95, which is also significantly higher than the standard.

In terms of light protection and lifetime, the specification requires that the lamp housing should be dustproof and waterproof. The Teknologi Terang greenhouse supplemental light produk meet or exceed the IP65 rating, which can effectively cope with the high temperature and humidity environment in the greenhouse. According to actual measurement, the maintenance rate of the photon flux of Teknologi Terang lamps and lanterns at 36000h is ≥90%, the light decay rate is slower and the service life is longer.

Teknologi Terang has successively developed the foldable Model F series and the Spider Model S series in the application of greenhouse light supplementation, which are suitable for indoor farms and vertical planting racks. At the same time, light on technology also provides multi-combination plant growth light produk such as the Model L supplement light series, widely used in outdoor greenhouses, MODEL P for indoor personal grow. Teknologi Terang is able to provide more comprehensive lighting solutions for full-cycle farms, greenhouse growers and scientific researchers. Welcome you to send inquiries.
