Plasma grow lights are some of the best grow lamps out there for indoor growing systems. Most of what is unique about plasma grow lights are positives including a super effective grow light system output. Plasma grow lights are full spectrum grow lamps as part of the indoor grow system. With indoor grow lights, quality spectrum and grow lamp output make all the difference for our grow light systems and grow equipment, and this is what we’re all shooting for in our indoor grow setup.
Typically, plasma grow lights have been used for the vegetative stage of indoor growing. For that stage of plant growth, these indoor grow lights are powerful. That power is in what they can deliver for our grow light systems. And, a plasma indoor grow light is very long lasting, typically 30,000 to 40,000 hours. Interestingly enough, Nikola Tesla invented this technology in the late 1800s. The plasma grow lamp uses electromagnetic fields in the indoor grow light to transfer power instead of electrodes. The indoor plant light from this bulb or LEP Light Emitting Plasma grow lamp is amazing in what it can accomplish for indoor growing systems.
There is a downside
With such a focused, intense grow light system beam from plasma grow lights, there is a downside. It is that there is very little indoor plant light penetration below the plant canopy. Also, the grow equipment footprint of plasma grow light systems is very intense. That footprint is also relatively small at the same time. Also, plasma indoor grow lights do produce heat in our indoor growing systems. So, if positioned close to the plant canopy for maximum effectiveness in the indoor grow system, plants can be damaged. This indoor plant light damage is in form of hot spots.
Only then can these now robotic lights can be positioned closer to the plants
There is only one way to turn these negatives around into positive grow equipment outcomes. That’s while making these high quality indoor grow lights everything they can be. That variable is placing these plasma indoor growing systems on LightRail light movers. Only then can these now robotic lights can be positioned closer to the plants. Because they are now moving along as a rail light, the overly focused indoor grow lamp beam is now dispersed. Check out the grow lamp ppfd comparison chart to see how this works. Heat is also dispersed and that’s a long a rectangle of coverage. Also, because these indoor grow lights are now moving on LightRail light movers; that same intensely focused indoor grow light can now penetrate into more of the plant. That allows it to interact with more of the plant leaves for maximum grow equipment effect.
This is a two-part effect for the plasma grow lights
This is a two-part effect for the indoor grow system. It includes closer coverage (Inverse Square Law) for maximum grow light system benefit with less intense indoor grow light interaction. That’s because the grow light system no longer has stationary hot spots. It also includes the movement of the indoor plant light for fewer shadow patterns and more penetration. The grow lamp reaches to more of the leaves for optimum Leaf Area Index (LAI). It makes for much faster growth and maximum yield. Plasma grow lights excel in what they can accomplish when they are moved as robotic lights on LightRail light movers. And, it’s the same effect whether it is a LightRail 3.5 Kit, a LightRail 4.0 Kit or a LightRail 4.20 Kit.
Light movers make these full spectrum, highly effective plasma grow light systems take off
If these grow light systems are left alone as stationary grow lamps, they are still intense indoor grow lamps. But, they are handicapped and self-limiting. They become supercharged, however, when they are put to their best use as robotic lights. Light movers make that possible. Plasma grow lights moved on LightRail light movers along a rectangle of coverage makes these full spectrum, highly effective grow light systems take off in what they can offer and in what they can accomplish for any indoor grow system. We are thinking Nikola would be proud.
