FAQs

Why are LED’s pink unlike the old HPS fixtures I am used to?
LED’s only use the colours in the light spectrum that a plant needs and therefore are more efficient by not producing anything extra.

I heard LED’s are expensive, what advantages do they offer over my old HPS?
The best known benefit is power savings but there are many more.  Better cropping times, better taste, large plants / produce, lowest mounting heights in the industry, smaller foot print, lower maintenance, less heat, dimming capabilities, customized spectrum…phew! The list goes on….

I am used to my TL lights and they do a good job, why look into LEDs?:
Complete control over your crop, dimming capabilities, power savings, low maintenance.

How much can I save using LED’s?
30-60% power savings are realistic.

There are a lot of LED’s out there, why choose Newlux?

I want to grow vertically and fit as many levels as possible with my building height, how can you help with this?
We customize our cone spreads, beam angles and lens to mount as little as 10 inches above the crop (crop dependent) while maintaining a good uniformity.

Do you have an LED to replace the HPS in my greenhouse?
Yes we do. We can replace a 400W – 600W fixture one for one and provide better light for plant growth.

Do your LED’s have UL or CSA approvals?
Yes.

Wireless control sounds great, can I get that type of control?
Yes, we have several wireless solutions available but sometimes a wired solution works just as well.

I have an existing climate control system, can I control your LED’s with my software?
