Fluence introduces new light scheduling solution
Added on 11 November 2022
In an industry with notoriously tight margins, growers must leverage every advantage to improve environmental management, enhance top-line performance, and cut operating costs. SHYFT is a wall-mountable waterproof device with patented photoacclimation technology that allows growers to automate, control, and monitor lighting conditions in multiple fixture zones simultaneously. It also provides the ability to configure and replicate precise conditions for crops to help cultivators maximize yields and increase growing cycles per season.
“The goal of every Fluence product is to help cultivators grow smarter,” says David Cohen, CEO of Fluence. “We achieve that not only by building best-in-class lighting products that help improve yields and increase efficiency, but also by creating products like SHYFT that empower cultivators to more effectively and accurately manage their lighting systems.”
SHYFT, which is compatible with Fluence’s full range of LED lighting technology, is designed to withstand a wide range of operating temperatures and humidity levels and can be mounted directly in cultivation environments. The product’s photoacclimation and photoperiod modes regulate the intensity and duration of light delivered, enhancing growth while protecting plant health. SHYFT can also be installed with the DC Flex Dimming Cable or Wireless Flex Dimming, a solution that leverages Bluetooth Mesh technology to wirelessly adjust Fluence luminaire light levels using any industry-standard 0-10V dimmer or environmental controller.
