Years of research have led to the major qualities of the light source being developed in-house. These qualities make the CLX V1000 unique in its appearance and performance. HortiTech is currently executing performance and demonstration researches for Climalux, together with renowned growers, at the World Horti Center in Naaldwijk, The Netherlands. The complete growing cycle for both cucumbers and tomatoes is being researched and documented, to show how the CLX V1000 performs in a practical growing environment.

Climalux developed new PSU for grow light system

During the GreenTech in Amsterdam, Climalux will present the new Power Supply Unit (SMC 4000) developed in-house. The SMC 4000 power supply is a 4 kW continuously dimmable LED driver, which supplies power to up to four CLX V1000 grow lights. The PSU works on a stand-alone basis and can be controlled externally via the Climalux Horticultural Control Unit, possibly linked to external horticultural process computers such as Hoogendoorn, Priva and Ridder, in accordance with the Horti Lighting Protocol (HLP).

35% savings on electricity costs through LED grow light system

The first results with the application of the dimmable LED grow light system from Climalux at Carnation Nursery Nieuwland in the Netherlands already show that energy costs have fallen by about a third compared to the same period in 2021. According to Chris Doelman, co-owner of the nursery from Hoek van Holland, it is an indication but the reality will not be much different.

Collaboration Climalux and Priva

The Climalux CLX-V1000 grow light system was recently connected to the Priva Connext horticultural process computer at Carnation Nursery Nieuwland in Hoek van Holland. This makes it possible to communicate with the Horticulture Control Unit of Climalux. As a result, it is now possible to optimally integrate any Climalux grow light system into Priva's horticultural computer systems.

Cultivation-oriented climate for carnations through Climalux LED grow light system

Almost the entire greenhouse of Anjerkwekerij Nieuwland in Hoek van Holland has recently been fitted with CLX V1000 grow lights from Climalux. In the carnation nursery there are various types of single and spray carnations and the ages of the crops differ. The Climalux grow light creates a microclimate around each species, caused by the vertical air movement in combination with the adjustable light intensity.

Less inhibitors used with grow lights

HortiTech recently carried out a trial with the use of Climalux grow lights in hydrangea cultivation at Huub van Leeuwen Westland. The results showed that the use of these grow lights has made the use of inhibitors almost unnecessary. The hydrangeas in this trial were not exposed to light, the grow lights were mainly used because of the vertical ventilation system.

Review online knowledge event: Climalux introduces new top LED lighting CLX V1000

What are the biggest advantages of Climalux's latest LED fixture? What are the results of the practical studies with the CLX V1000? And how does this fit with Plant Empowerment? These and more issues were answered during the online knowledge event 'Climalux introduces new top LED lighting CLX V1000' on 18 February 2021. During this one-hour event, the viewer was introduced to the LED grow lamp, which increases production with substantially less energy due to the use of the light spectrum of the sun.
