Plant Research Growth Chamber Lighting
The AllBright® 315W CMH lighting system integrates the 93.6% luminaire efficiency of its One Bounce and Out™ reflector with the 1.90 PPF/watt output of the Philips 315W 3100K Agro CMH lamp. In combination the AllBright uniformly delivers 34% more PPF/kLux than a 50/50 mix of HPS and MH lamps. All-Bright’s Full Volume 3D™ uniformity is delivered in plant chambers clad in specular aluminum or diffuse white walls. The All-Bright can be driven by the 50% dimmable 200-277V Advance electronic ballast or GreenTek digital ballast.
