Programmable LED Experimentation System (CI-800)

Product code : 1489637343

The CI-800 is a programmable LED plant growth lighting system. It is designed for plant growth rooms and retrofits of environmental growth chambers, replacing fluorescent lighting designed for general illumination rather than plant growth. Strong on blue light, but weak in the critical red region, fluorescent tubes do not deliver targeted light for plant growth.

    Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) is supplied by LEDs with spectral output matching the absorption peaks of blue and red photoreceptors in plants. Supplemental white LEDs are also integrated into the light bar to view plants in natural light. The blue and red intensities can be independently controlled with the supplied LightSnap!© software. Experimental and routine plant growth light recipes can be uploaded to the control unit via Wi-Fi.

    The CI-800 provides consistent, controllable, cool LED lighting in many applications. The bright red and blue LEDs target photoreceptors that drive photosynthesis and photomorphogenesis. Factorial experiments can easily be programmed with LightSnap!© to characterize responses to day length, red:blue ratios, light intensity, and their interactions. These experiments yield information about optimal lighting for crop production, time-to-flowering, or yield specific phenotypes.

    The CI-800 can be used to power plant growth in routine applications. The light bar is designed to be conveniently installed in multilayer production systems -- such as those used in Arabidopsis growth rooms -- replacing inefficient fluorescent fixtures. Quick mounting brackets are provided. Lower heat output also will help prevent medium dehydration and water condensation in tissue culture applications. Retrofitting environmental growth chambers with LEDs is also a popular option because of lower heat output and improved lighting characteristics. Propagation of seedlings and even crop production are other uses of the CI-800.
