induction grow light?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Has anyone tried induction lamps for plants growing? I just came across this news:

http://www.release-news.com/technology/271333-induction-lamps-for-plants-growing-are-released-from-riant-lighting.html

 

Is induction better than led?

My experience and belief is that at this time the induction lighting is more productive, with comparable energy requirements, to LED. None of the LED lights can produce as much as some claim, they have their uses, and are great for spectrum tweaking.

 

I am not familiar with that particular brand, I would suggest caution when buying directly from China, the quality has proven to lack in the past, too many failures, too time consuming and expensive to get them repaired.

 

I would suggest using an American manufacturer, here is a YouTube channel with Induction grow light information and grow videos, a link to find the US made product can be found there.  http://www.youtube.com/user/GrowLightSource 

 

I hope you find the information you seek.

I'm trying to figure this out myself. But I believe that most lights are better than LED, only that LED is a cheap way to go, they last forever?

See the below Spectral analysis for an induction lamp with 200W:

 

700

 

Plant photosynthesis absorbs lights 400-520nm & 610-720nm. A large part of the lights(blue and red) were usable. With is much better than HID whose lights are most focus between 520-610nm.
