The Gavita Pro 270e LEP is a plasma light fixture based on the LUXIM Light Emitting Plasma (LEP) technology. It is completely solid state (no moving parts) and suitable for climate rooms (damp environments). They are suitable for central control with the Gavita Master lighting controllers. Now you can have complete lighting control at your fingertips.
The LEP technology is based on a radio frequency driver which excites an emitter cell without electrodes. The molecules in the emitter transform into plasma state, emitting an intense full continuous spectrum light.
Features & Benefits
- No electrode wear which translates in a very long lamp life
- Very high quality light (full spectrum) because of the molecular light emission, including UVA and UVB
- A full continuous light
- Very stable light spectrum
- Long output stability (at mean stable output) over time
- Absence of infrared radiation
The Gavita Pro 270e LEP is developed for plant cultivation, but can also be used in any environment when a high quality, full continuous light source has advantages.
We have two different spectra available:
- Grow spectrum (41.02 emitter) – high CRI full spectrum lighting for stand-alone use
- Supplemental spectrum (41.01) – specifically developed to add quality spectrum in combination with HPS light, adding the spectrum that the HPS lacks.
The Gavita Pro LEP is available as a convection cooled unit and as an air cooled unit, where all heat emitting parts are mounted in a 150mm/6″ tube which requires active cooling. Both emitter versions are available in the convection cooled as well as the air cooled unit.
Growing in indoor conditions without sunlight not only requires a good climate, but also a good quality light. Though one can grow successful under HPS alone, or a combination of HPS and MH, it is still not the full spectrum our sun delivers. The Gavita Pro 300 LEP produces light with a spectrum similar to that of the sun.
Plants have evolved under sunlight over millions of years. University studies have shown that seedlings and cuttings grown under full spectrum plasma light develop much better than under HPS or CFL light and produce more lateral branches. The drymatter increases up to 30 % and the plant structure is more even and better distributed compared to HPS. It brings your plant into the best conditions for generative development. Depending on your crop you can either use only the plasma light or a combination of plasma light and HPS for plants that thrive on red light for generative development.
the glass wide spectrum filter allows for low quantities UVB light to pass while shielding you and your crop from UVC. The Miroaluminum reflector generates an even square light pattern. The absence of heat radiation in the light allows you to hang the lamp close to your crop, or to add the light without adding extra heat radiation to your crop.
