WHY HIGH CRI - FULL SPECTRUM - LED LIGHTS?
Not all white light is the same.
Many of the incandescent and
halogen "replacement" LED lights currently on the
market use less energy but
are not true replacements as the white light they emit is of relatively
poor quality. In applications where appearance is of paramount
importance, light quality cannot be compromised.
High CRI (color rendering index) LED lights dramatically improve the appearance of products by allowing colors to appear clear, vivid and distinguishable all with lower energy cost!
By taking a slightly different approach and creating an innovative emission spectrum,
our LED lights have achieved the highest color rendering available
using the most advanced technologies, offering a true energy efficient replacement.
WHAT IS HIGH CRI?
CRI (color rendering index) is a measure of how accurately a light source illuminates an objects true colors.
Our LED lights have CRI values of up to 98, indicating that our LED lights are able to produce full spectrum light that exceeds that of High Pressure Sodium, Metal Halide or Fluorescent lighting, like natural daylight. See the Full Spectrum here > >
What about Grow Lights?
Grow Lights and the importance of Full Spectrum Color
In Grow Lights color is king!
Color is most accurately described by a combination of Kelvin Temperature and CRI.
So K + CRI = Growth
What is the “K” – Kelvin Rating?
The K rating is just one way of measuring the color output of a light.
The higher the Kelvin temperature gets, the bluer the light is.
K rating tells you very little about what type of light within the full spectrum is being emitted.
Color Rendering Index – CRI
CRI is a numeric indication of a lamp’s ability to render the full color spectrum accurately.
The higher the CRI the more natural and vibrant the full spectrum of colors are.
A bulb with a CRI of 95 or higher is excellent for growing; the sun has a CRI of 100.
Yet only part of solar radiation is used by plants for photosynthesis, the blue to red part of the spectrum.
This Photosynthetically Active Radiation zone contains the wavelengths between 400 and 700 nanometers. Light is measured on a scale in nanometers (radiated wavelength) from 400nm (violet) to 700nm (red).
Most people choose lighting solely based on the Kelvin temperature of a bulb.
As stated this tells you very little about what type of light within the spectrum is being emitted and at what strength.
To get the best Full Spectrum Grow Light, Blue Light and light well into the Red Spectrum, you need High K and High CRI!
