ANSAN, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/KOSDAQ046890?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#KOSDAQ046890lt;/agt;–Seoul
Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ 046890), a leading global innovator
of LED products and technology, announced that its SunLike Series
natural spectrum LEDs have been adopted for horticulture LED lighting by
the lighting solution company Rofianda
B.V., located in the Netherlands, the second largest agricultural
exporter in the world.
While it is well known that natural sunlight is one of the key factors
in growth cycle of a plant, most growers cultivating a variety of crops
under sunlight have experienced difficulties in regulating their growth
cycles due to adverse seasonal conditions. Replacing sunlight with LED
lighting that closely matches natural sunlight enables growers to
control the growth cycles and development of crops year-round in
greenhouses and indoor farms.
Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs are the
world’s first LEDs to produce light that closely matches the spectrum of
natural sunlight. The SunLike Series LEDs adopted for horticulture LED
lighting by Rofianda B.V. achieved a full spectrum of light wavelengths
from 380nm to 740nm, similar to the spectral curve of natural sunlight,
with a color temperature of 5600K optimized to daylight spectra and
color properties of CRI97 and CQS97. In co-operation with Rofianda B.V.,
Seoul Semiconductor has delivered an optimal horticulture lighting
solution that fulfills the requirements of the light source for
effective cultivation of all varieties of crops, flowers, and cannabis.
Rofianda B.V. introduces their innovative horticulture lighting with
SunLike at the annual HortiContact Fair, held in Gorinchem, Netherlands
February 19 – 21.
“We are proud to launch the innovative horticulture LED lighting in
co-operation with Seoul Semiconductor. Its SunLike Series natural
spectrum LEDs are the first and only true sunlight LEDs that enable
growers to ensure better yields and a consistently high quality of
crops. We believe that market demand for horticultural LED lighting with
SunLike LEDs will expand,” said Ronald Gronsveld, director of Rofianda.
“The horticulture lighting market is growing fast, and our SunLike
Series natural spectrum LEDs will offer the considerable benefits for
customers to achieve optimal horticulture lighting solutions,” said Ki
Bum Nam, sales and marketing vice president of Seoul Semiconductor. “We
are pleased to expand this horticulture LED portfolio and will further
diversify the customer base worldwide,” added Nam.
SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs were co-developed through the
combination of Seoul Semiconductor’s optical semiconductor technology
and Toshiba Materials’ TRI-R technology, which defines its original
concept as “the light closest to the sun for human well-being.” TRI-R
technology enables the spectrum of natural sunlight to be reproduced by
a white LED light source. TRI-R is a registered trademark of Toshiba
Material Co., Ltd.
