Lighting for Horticulture

ionGROW™

Ceravision are looking to work with interested parties to develop and optimise spectra for different types of plant characteristics.

Focussing on providing energy purely in the Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) 400nm to 700nm region, may not provide the spectral content essential to the development of plant characteristics, for example, germination, flavour enhancement, flowering, disease control etc.

We would like to collaborate with companies whose expertise lies within these fields, to exploit the benefits of plasma lighting in the horticultural market.

ionCORE™ could be particularly suited to horticultural applications, where a tailored output spectrum is required. The electrodeless discharge chamber does not have many of the chemical constraints imposed by the materials of traditional light sources. 

The ionCORE™ lighting system delivers high levels of illumination from a very small source. The small source size allows design flexibility for luminaires to be compact. This could enable installations to have minimal shadowing, making the most effective use of any natural daylight.

Further Information

Future Applications

Energy efficiency is a global driver within many markets and Ceravision’s core technology has the ability to address these markets. Due to the flexible nature of the technology we are able to facilitate a variety of power levels (400 W to 5 kW) and spectra ranging from visible to UV light.

Technology

Ceravision’s High Efficiency Plasma (HEP) light is particularly suited to medium and high power applications. The light is emitted from a very small source, which enables Ceravision to accurately focus and distribute the light. This in turn facilitates significantly greater optical performance.

Intellectual Property

Ceravision maintains an extensive Intellectual Property (“IP”) portfolio comprising Patents, Trade Marks and Design Rights.
