Article published in the UV4Plants Bulletin co-written by Stuart Mucklejohn, Barry Preston, Afroditi Moutsi, and Sean Rogers and edited by: Marcel A. K. Jansen and Pedro J. Aphalo. The article discusses the benefits of UV-A and UV-B for plants and indoor cultivation.
This one page handout summarises the key features and benefits of this unique UV grow-light. It has been designed specifically to complement PAR grow-lights to deliver high levels of UV-B and UV-A so that they can together deliver a broader solar spectrum for a more optimum indoor growing environment.
This is a guide to the installation, use and maintenance of the UV420 plasma grow-light. This patented UV grow-light delivers high UV-A/UV-B levels to complement PAR grow-lights to deliver a broader solar spectrum for a superior growing environment. In their native habitats, crops benefit naturally from solar UV-B, but in a greenhouse this is all blocked by glass. Incorporating this spectrum boosts yields and quality, deters pests and pathogens and supports an organic regime. No other grow-lights including LEDs can deliver such UV-B output.
UV420 Product Data Sheet: The UV420 plasma complementary grow-light has a spectral output concentrated in the high energy 280-550nm range to deliver the vital UV-B, UV-A and blue light. For most plants this range creates stronger root systems, boosts secondary metabolites to improve nutritional and medicinal values, strengthens resistance to pathogens and pests, and increases crop yields.
Article published in 'The Lighting Journal' April 2019, co-written by Ceravision’s Dr. Stuart Mucklejohn and lighting consultant Mr. John Stocks, in relation to UV horticulture lighting - entitled ‘Growth Cycle’. This eminent journal from The Institution of Lighting Professionals, delivers lighting information on all aspects of the lighting profession including technical coverage and development, new products and services, and professional news.
Delivering flexible spectral outputs, plasma lighting offers practical economic solutions in horticulture and other applications requiring natural solar levels of UV-A and UV-B, or UV-C for sterilisation.
Plasma Light Technology
Ceravision’s 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.
