Current Showcases Industry’s First One-For-One 1000W HPS Retrofit for Greenhouse Growers at GreenTech

LDS NP 12 current Arize 400

June 13, 2019

Current, powered by GE announced the release of the Arize Element* Top Light, the industry’s first one-for-one LED replacement for 1000W High Pressure Sodium (HPS) products. The Arize Element is the most advanced grow light on the market, allowing growers to get the most out of their greenhouse, for less.

A 2018 report by Strategies Unlimited anticipates that the global greenhouse market will reach $7.94 billion USD by 2022. As worldwide need for healthy, fresh food continues to grow, greenhouse growers require efficient, effective lighting to enable year-round growing.

“With Current’s lighting tech expertise combined with feedback from leading plant scientists, systems integrators and growers, we’ve successfully created a system that will give new meaning to the growth that the farms of the future can achieve,” said Malcolm Yare, Horticulture Business Development Manager at Current, powered by GE. “The Arize Element Top Light is the first true one-for-one replacement available for the horticulture market, meeting a critical industry need. This product delivers cutting-edge innovation to the rapidly evolving horticulture lighting industry that’s set to reach more than $7 billion by 2022.”

The Arize Element features multiple light spectrums to maximise growth for specific crops, allowing growers to tailor the light to the specific needs of each crop. Universal installation options allow the light to be installed in dozens of different ways on existing structures, dramatically reducing installation time. The light also features a unique design that minimises shadowing, allowing for maximum natural light penetration.

Additional Arize Element series highlights:

  • With a model offering an efficacy of 3.5 micromoles per joule (μmol/J), surpassing the previously leading 3.2 µmol/J, to one with over 1800 photosynthetic photon flux (PPF), it the most complete and advanced greenhouse grow light family currently available.
  • Extended lifetime compared to HPS: 36,000 hours from the Arize Element, and 8,000 hours from HPS.
  • High light output with less heat than an HPS or MH system, providing the ideal light spectrum for optimal growth while saving on cooling costs.
