Based in Milton Keynes, Ceravision is leading the world in the development of UV lighting for horticulture. Our plasma lighting is founded on microwave-powered electrodeless discharges, and can use a large range of light emitters unavailable to conventional discharge lighting systems.
In horticulture, plasma's flexibility in providing tailored spectral distributions, long life, high efficiency and added-value is persuasive. Plasma lighting lends itself to several other high-output applications including UV-C for air and water sterilisation.
The new UV420 plasma grow-light delivers high levels of UV-B, UV-A and blue light, and is designed to work alongside other grow-lights to deliver the missing 280-550 nm wavelengths: in greenhouses, glass reflects all solar UV-B and no other commercially available grow-lights, including LEDs, can provide such intense UV-B output
UV-B and UV-A influence plant physiology through particular receptors and pigments to enhance nutritional and medicial qualities whilst at the same time deterring pests and pathogens. UV-B can also help sterilise grow-rooms.
In medicinal cannabis cultivation for example, this UV grow-light enhanced flowering and boosted cannabinoid concentrations by up to 40 per cent.
Delivering flexible spectral outputs, Ceravision's lighting offers practical economic solutions in horticulture and other applications including UV-B lights to help production of vitamin D in reptiles and humans, and UV sterilisation.
HEP Plasma Lighting Technology
Ceravision’s HEP plasma grow-lights, with a spectrum providing UV-B, UV-A and blue herald a new scientific future in horticulture lighting and UV-B is beneficial for humans producing the vitamin D essential for health.
