Induction Grow Lights

Definition - What does Induction Grow Lights mean?

Induction grow lights combine both induction and gas exchange. The lights have no electrodes, which enable the lights to deliver 100,000 hours of natural sunlight light spectrum. They also boast rare earth horticulture blend phosphors that provide full PAR spectrum photosynthesis for optimal plant growth.

Induction lights typically consume about 65 per cent less power than other grow lights. They come in a variety of sizes and circular, linear, and bulb shapes. Light generated by induction bulbs is maximized by their unique shapes. They do not emit light from one central point; rather, they generate light throughout the tube, making every surface of the bulb a light source.

MaximumYield explains Induction Grow Lights

Nikola Tesla was the first to discover induction lighting in the late 1800s. Since those early days, induction lights have changed very little. Induction grows lights are also basically the same as fluorescent lighting, however induction lights last far longer and have no filament. They instantly turn on, unlike other lights.

Because induction grow lights come in a wide array of sizes and shapes, they are excellent for side lighting or as a supplemental light choice in a grow room or greenhouse. Induction grows lights typically have better canopy penetration than other lighting methods. They also produce a full spectrum color that is close to natural sunlight.

Induction grow lights produce almost no heat, which makes them highly beneficial as grow lights. However, when used for some indoor grow applications, even the induction grow light’s slight heat production is enough to require fans when the lights are utilized.
