LED lights have been utilized in specialized horticulture since the early nineties. NASA first introduced the idea of using LEDs for plant production in space and they were presented to horticulturists as a promising new technology that could effectively and efficiently replace high intensity discharge (HID) lights. To date, LED lights have failed to meet horticulturists' expectations. Wispy flower growth instead of the robust density of a healthy, thriving plant has been common. This result is not the fault of LED technology, but rather due to poorly designed and manufactured products. What makes a good LED grow light is a combination of light intensity and a correct balance of light spectrum. Suncreat led grow light solve both these problems. To understand this, and to comprehend the revolution that Suncreat led grow lights products represent, it is first necessary to have a basic understanding of how an LED light works.
A light emitting diode (LED) is essentially a silicon wrapped aluminum chip, which is impregnated with an anode and a cathode. Electric current is passed through the chip and energy, called electro luminescence, is released.
LED bulbs emit light at a particular wavelength that is specified by a number represented in nanometers (nm). These numbers are found in the photosynthetic active radiation (PAR) zone between 400nm and 700nm (this is the viable light spectrum). LED bulbs are identified by their peak nm intensity but may emit light of both higher and lower frequencies. For example, if a LED chip is rated at 660nm, it will peak at that intensity but will still cover wavelengths near 640nm and 680nm. LED chips can be used to produce any wavelength of light
