Our lighting systems should be thought of as projection units. Each lighting system unit, or section of “sky”, projects a precise rectangle of light using dual-way linear lenses. Never before used in grow lighting, these lenses are perfect for projecting light both “out” and “down” instead of all-down (spotlight) or all out (no lenses).
1) Light is spread “out” of the short ends of the unit
The 120 degree “wide” angle spreads light over a long distance, creating an even rectangle of light. The wide LED panel gives the plant a large section of sky where light is coming from. With light coming at the plant from multiple angles, more of it is covered with light. This lighting pattern assists in canopy penetration by reducing leaf shadows. In reflective grow areas, the light coming out of the the short end of the Electric Sky is reflected back into the grow area.
2) Light is focused “down” from the long sides of the unit
This 60 degree “narrow” angle focuses light downwards in a tight beam, intensifying the light output. This increases the density of light the plant receives without reflection. Light in this direction is also not scattered towards another surface, ensuring photons are going down and not lost towards a wall or the floor. This feature also makes it so light is not directed towards your eyes when tending to your plants.
The combination of these two properties creates a “widescreen” projection. The Electric Sky, with its unique distributed light output and linear lenses, sends light to a rectangular grow area, perfect for closets or grow tents.
The Electric Sky
When paired with more than one unit, it can expand to a square, great for grow tents or HPS replacements. It can also scale to fit the largest grow room and cover your area with light.
Instead of investing in a spotlight, why not fill your grow area with an Electric Sky?
