Harnessing LED technology for Horticulture


AEC's eco-friendly LED Grow Lights hold many advantages over traditional HPS (high pressure sodium) lamps, including optimising energy consumption, reducing maintenance costs and the absence of high temperatures.

LED Grow Light can stimulate photosynthesis perfectly, extend the daylight period to give year-round production, make indoor growing possible and plan climate conditions according to the needs of different plants. The LED Grow Light luminaires can supplement or replace natural lighting, providing the exact light spectrum and intensity needed. They use specific LEDs that emit light at dedicated frequencies, which are capable of dramatically increasing horticultural production. 

 

EFFICIENCY
Spending on energy consumption is one of the most important items for growers. Replacing HPS lighting with AEC’s modern LED Grow Light technology leads to a cost reduction of up to 70% and a quick return on investment. Moreover, based on your needs and the results you want to achieve, we will evaluate the existing installation and provide clarifications and indications on how to optimise your lighting plan with AEC LED Grow Light solutions.

LONG LIFETIME
The LED luminaire has a life of at least 8 times greater than traditional HPS lamps. In addition, AEC’s Grow Lights are specially designed to withstand the harsh environment of production greenhouses: perfect resistance to humidity, temperature fluctuations and dust.

TEMPERATURE
LED luminaires don’t generate heat like traditional HPS lamps. This allows accurate control of the climate in the greenhouse and means light sources can be positioned closer to the plants if necessary, without causing heat damage.

ABSENCE OF CHEMICAL MATERIALS
LED luminaires are perfect for replacing traditional horticultural lighting: they are, in fact, completely free of pollutants such as metal halides and sodium vapours.

DIMMING SYSTEMS
The GQ1 Grow Light and GA Grow Light luminaires are available with dimming option DALI.

Work in synergy with the environment
Environmental sustainability and innovation are key concepts behind the development of AEC's products. LED Grow Light solutions are designed to increase and extend crop seasonality by allowing you to program a constant production throughout the year, regardless of the different seasons.

AEC provides two different LED luminaires specifically developed for horticulture: GQ1 Grow Light and GA Grow LightBoth lighting fixtures are distinguished by reliability, long life and very high energy efficiency.
