Hyperion, a leading developer of award-winning LED technologies and horticultural grow lighting, today announced that its Hyperion Grow Light was recognised by the judges of the annual Sapphire Awards program at a Gala Event in Las Vegas on February 28, 2019.
Hyperion was honoured as a winner for its advance in Horticultural Lighting for their Hyperion 1750 LED top light. This innovation has a light output of 1750 micromole/s, equivalent to a 1000W SON-T; this high output means far fewer units are required than other LED systems to provide the 200+ micromole/s/m² required. The low radiant heat of the Hyperion™ top light allows for a more flexible lighting strategy when temperatures in the greenhouse are high and heating pipes installed in the top level of the greenhouse will be used to replace the radiant heat normally provided by HPS lighting.
The judging panel consisted of senior expert professionals and judged the finalists based on the following criteria: Innovation, Value to the User, Sustainability, Meeting a Defined Need, Collaboration and Impact.
Jonathan Barton, Director of Hyperion Grow Lights, explained:
“We are absolutely delighted to have won the award for the category ‘Horticultural Lighting’ in the prestigious Sapphire Awards ceremony. Hyperion is proving its effectiveness as a replacement for 1000W HPS with its ability to save energy and provide a better light spectrum to optimise growth.”
June Griffin, publisher of LEDs Magazine (www.ledsmagazine.com), said:
“This prestigious program allows our LED and Lighting Group to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and leaders in the solid-state lighting industry. Our 2019 winners are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact.”
All Hyperion grow lights come in a range of standard and tailor made spectrums, with a host of features and benefits designed to give a higher commercial return to growers. The latest LED grow light in the Hyperion range is the Inter Light, an intra canopy light solution for hire wire plants; it comes after the growing success of its Hyperion top lights which saw over 10Ha of grow light installations in 2018.
Continuing its awareness campaign, the Hyperion Grow Lights team will be exhibiting at GreenTech (11th-13th June 2019) on stand 12.600, showcasing the new Inter Light and existing 1750 top light in a variety of spectrums.
