The Dutch Lighting Innovations DIODE-Series Interlighting fixtures is designed to be used in combination with the DLI JOULE-Series. The combination of top light and intercanopy light provides the plant specific uniform light pattern for a uniform plant.
The LED-spectrum is optimized by DLI for the optimum growth on the bottom of the canopy. By using a passive high cooling surface the durability of the LED’s are preserved.
For a uniform plant a uniform pattern is required
HPS or CDM only give the top leaves of the plants a certain amount of light and even with the best reflectors in the market, only the upper 40% of the plant canopy receives enough light for photosynthesis.
The lower 60% of the plant is living in its own shadow and the bushier the plant gets the less light the lower part of the plant receives. Interlighting is Greenhouse technology and a method that’s used in Nordic greenhouses because of lack of natural daylight, indoor cultivation has no natural daylight to supplement photosynthetic photon flux and will benefit greatly from this technology.
Each of the Interlight modules is 4ft or 1.2mtr; the size is ideal for the use on tray and bench-systems and can either be used over the width (4ft or 1.2mtr) of the tray or joined to run over the length (8ft or 2.4mtr) of the tray.
How it works
DLI Interlighting fixtures are designed to deliver high levels of photosynthetic photon flux (PPF) values with optimal angled vertical light uniformity. The Interlighting modules are constructed in a slim water-proof design and suspended between the plant canopy rows with the easy-hang system.
A percentage of harvestable plant height can suffer from lack of light due to dense canopy foliage; which will result in fewer flowers. The DLI Interlighting system will provide High PAR PPF at an optimized coverage angle making sure the whole plant is activated by light; extensive trials have shown bigger leaves and flowers at the lower portions on the plant. The modules emit very little heat and require no active cooling minimizing leaf burn.
