London, ENGLAND – 28 January 2020: Hyperion Grow Lights is introducing the latest high power top light in the Hyperion LED range at Fruit Logistica in Berlin next week. The new 1000W LED top light means that growers can now easily replace their 1000W SON-T lamps and get over 50% more light, using the same cables and the same power.
With a choice of light output options of up to 3000 µmol/s and up to 3.5 µmol/J efficiency, the new Hyperion 3k is one of the of the most powerful and flexible LED solutions for growers, whether they are looking to add more light or use less power. With an unrivalled 3000 µmol/s output, less Hyperion 3k fixtures are required for any greenhouse installation, delivering economies of scale and lower costs per m². Existing SON-T cabling can be re-used, making installation both easy and cost effective.
The new 1000W fixture uses the latest Hyperion fan cooling technology, allowing it to be very compact – and with fewer fixtures required, the total shading from any installation is very low. The Hyperion 3k can be mounted below or alongside the trellis to maximise the high above the crop and fit with any screen installation.
Hyperion Head Agronomist, Maarten Klein commented “This very compact fixture has a minimal shading effect, so the available sunlight can be used optimally. We see a growing demand for higher output as non-radiant LED lighting opens the doorway for increased light intensities and proven yield increase. Throughout the winter high productions can be achieved, with lower evaporation rates. This leads to higher CO2 levels in the greenhouse throughout the day and therefore better use of the artificial light source. Since we are able to fine tune the spectrum to grower’s requirements, we can offer tailor-made lighting projects.
The Hyperion 3k is the latest in the award-winning Hyperion top light range, developed with Plessey technology and Osram LEDs. In 2017, the first Hyperion 1000 was introduced, followed by the Hyperion 1750 (2018) and Hyperion 1850 (2019) as the first compact LED fixtures designed as trellis mounted alternatives to 600W and 1000W SONT lamps. Already there are Hyperion reference sites in 6 countries across Europe for both 100% LED and hybrid installations.
“In recent years there have been rapid developments in LED grow light design, efficiency and cost effectiveness, but the light output of the 1000W SON-T remained the standard. Now at 3000 µmol/s, the Hyperion 3k surpasses the output of traditional 1000W HPS delivering over 50% more light for the same power. Hyperion gives growers the opportunity to optimise the light intensity in their greenhouse for the lowest cost per m², whether they are building new, looking to replace older 1000W HPS or looking to increase both light and reduce power with a Hybrid installation,” commented Director of Hyperion Grow Lighting, Jonathan Barton.
