Why Move Your Light?

The LightRail® Difference - Grow Lamp Movers

When indoor grow lights move over the tops of the plants, the grow lamps can be positioned closer to the plants for maximized ppfd. Moving grow lamps can also penetrate to more leaf area, maximizing each grow light on two fronts at once. In addition, there are no hot spots, and shadow patterns are reduced. LightRail grow light mover kits provide this sun-like effect of closer and to more leaf area simultaneously.

Why not just add more lights?

Ppfd readings for moving lights vs stationary lights

More than 50% of stationary light is wasted, and simply adding more stationary grow lights cannot duplicate what light movers can do. That’s because light equals yield and efficiency matters. LightRail light movers also cover about 30% more area per grow light. This saves 30% in electricity, 30% in up-front grow light purchases, 30% in replacement purchases AND we see faster growth and much better yields. Moving your grow lights is a smart business move and the returns are immediate. In a market where energy efficiency is as important as yield, you can have both.

A light mover allows each grow lamp to cover 30% more area compared to stationary, increases the effectiveness of each grow light that was less than 50% efficient when stationary and gets those grow lights to perform for maximum effect by allowing a closer plant to lamp tolerance. That is significant. LightRail is quality constructed instrument-grade robotics, solidly made in the USA to perform as an absolute workhorse, crop after crop and year after year. You can only get this with LightRail by Gualala Robotics.

LightRail® Testimonials

“The closer the light source, the more energy you create. Our bulbs are in the canopy, not five feet above. And, we can only do this with LightRail light movers. Our average vegetative growth period takes 5-7 days. Flowering takes about 60 days depending on genetics.
The system was used at BUDS Pasco Farm in over 200 harvests and never failed a quality assurance test for any reason. We run 10 plants per light, in a 35 sq. ft. cell, per 1,000 watt HID lamp, each on its own light mover. Average yields can range from 3 – 5oz depending on genetics. We get six harvests (per rack) per year.”
