Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions – For Growers
At AZENTIVE we care about creating healthy people and plants. Our goal is to help you meet the demands of growing potent medicinal products that can heal as many people as possible.
We focus on healthy, hearty, and high producing plants, optimizing growth for each specific plant’s morphology and biology. Plants grown under Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions thrive at all stages of their lifecycle, boosting your profits.
See Specifications for details about our Sun Power and Sun Light systems.
Maximize your plant. Whether you need an already powerful off-the-shelf solution or prefer a fully customized grow system, your grow house or greenhouse will see many benefits:
This uniform and dense light will boost your yields by 40 to 90 percent, depending on grow methods (as reported by actual customers). Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions have the most powerful PPFD* on the market, with systems uniformly producing 2000 to 2400 micromols/s/m2 at 1 meter height.
Plants thrive from more robust hardening, denser internode spacing, and more biomass per plant. Growers using Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions report that flowers develop along the entire branch of the plant for the top 75% of the plant, a substantial increase over their previous systems.
Sun On-Demand’s Lighting Solutions’s real spectrum provides homogeneous and dense sunlight. With light emitted both inside and outside of the PAR* range, our systems are tuned to your growing needs and desired outcomes.
We customize the light spectrum by strain and plant life cycle to boost targeted medical and flavor compounds. Strain-specific light spectrums optimize the intake of photons, water, CO2, nutrients, etc., and reduce the need for fertilizers, pest control, and more.
EFFICIENT & COST-EFFECTIVE
With little heat waste and 60 to 140 lumens of light output per watt of electricity, Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions are twice as efficient as daylight LEDs. Customers’ electricity cost savings are 25 to 75 percent for lighting and lighting-related air conditioning costs, allowing for short system payback periods. The 100,000-hour bulb life span also means lower long-term maintenance costs.
We replicate the sun because we care about healthy plants, but we also care about healthy people, places, and planet. All of the components in our lighting systems are recyclable and contain no mercury.
In this comparison of three lighting systems for a medical cannabis application, you’ll see the benefits of Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions: less energy waste, an extra grow cycle per year, and heartier plants. Sun On-Demand Lighting Solutions can also be customized and optimized for specific strains, growing methods, and environments.
Energy comparisons based on an actual grow room of 1,680 sq. ft. at 1 meter above the canopy.
