GAVITA Pro 300 LEP
Introducing solid state horticultural plasma light
After long trials with various crops and lamp combinations we are proud to present to you the first horticultural LiFi solid state plasma luminary: The GAVITA Pro 300 LEP (Light Emitting Plasma).
Growing in indoor conditions without sunlight not only requires a good climate, but also a good quality light. Though one can grow successful under HPS alone, or a combination of HPS and MH, it is still not the full spectrum our sun delivers. The GAVITA Pro 300 LEP produces light with a spectrum similar to that of the sun.
Plants have evolved under sunlight over millions of years. University studies have shown that seedlings and cuttings grown under full spectrum plasma light develop much better than under HPS or CFL light and produce more lateral branches. The dry matter increases up to 30% and the plant structure is more even and better distributed compared to HPS. It brings your plant into the best conditions for generative development. Depending on your crop you can either use only the plasma light or a combination of plasma light and HPS for plants that thrive on red light for generative development.
The GAVITA Pro 300 LEP is a solid state horticultural plasma light fixture. There are no moving parts in the fully sealed housing, improving the reliability. The light source is a LUXIM STA 41.02 LiFi module which has a rated average life of 30,000 hours. The glass wide spectrum filter allows for low quantities UVB light to pass while shielding you and your crop from UVC. The Miro aluminum reflector generates an even square light pattern. The absence of heat radiation in the light allows you to hang the lamp close to your crop, or to add the light without adding extra heat radiation to your crop.
