Fluence launches RAPTR, a high-efficiency LED light designed to replace traditional lighting technologies

Incorporating Fluence’s diverse spectral portfolio, the RAPTR is an excellent and long-lasting replacement for high-pressure sodium fixtures.

AUSTIN, Texas, June 09, 2022-(BUSINESS WIRE)-Fluence, a global provider of energy-efficient LED lighting solutions for commercial cannabis and food production, today launched RAPTR, the latest lighting solution of high energy. efficiency, designed to replace 1,000 watt high pressure sodium (HPS) appliances, and maximize energy efficiency.

Greenhouses and indoor growers are increasingly looking for lighting solutions that offer greater efficiency and performance, to reduce installation, operation and maintenance costs, while increasing plant yield and quality. . Recognizing the importance of maintaining consistency in harvest schedules while meeting specific energy needs, Fluence designed RAPTR to allow growers to seamlessly upgrade their harvesting solutions. lighting. In most cases, HPS’s current electrical infrastructure, such as cables or distribution panels, can be reused for RAPTR, making it a real outside solution.

“Renovating a facility with LED technology opens the door to more light, creates opportunities for higher yields and ultimately increases revenue,” said Jordon Musser, product manager at Fluence. “RAPTR is designed to reduce growers’ operating costs, increase light levels, or even achieve the same without changing current plant layouts. »

Ongoing global research, from Fluence, which explores the effects of LED lighting on cannabis and fruit and vegetable crops, continues to show that higher light intensity increases production to ratio which is almost one to the other. Numerous research studies conducted by Fluence, and various customer trials have shown that for every 1% increase in Photosynthetic Photon Flux Density (PPFD), there is an equivalent increase in yield for growers of 1% that further. For fruit and vegetable growers, increasing light levels is certainly desirable, but should not come at the cost of energy efficiency. RAPTR achieves higher light levels than its HPS equivalent, increasing yields for cannabis and fruit and vegetable growers, while helping to optimize energy consumption at the facility.

“Our business is to meet grower goals, either through an all-LED lighting approach or through a hybrid approach,” said David Cohen, CEO of Fluence. “Adding RAPTR to our range of lighting solutions gives growers an additional option to optimize their facilities based on the needs of retailers and consumers. We look forward to working with our global growers to design the best lighting techniques for their environments using RAPTR. »

Designed specifically to limit surface dirt and dust accumulation, RAPTR luminaires have an IP67 rating and feature powder coated surfaces, which are easy to clean and chemical resistant. The RAPTR solution will be displayed at the Fluence stand (n ° 05.524) at the GreenTech Amsterdam fair from June 14 to 16.
