Planning Your Space

First, let’s start with a typical  4’ x  4’ footprint of light delivered by a typical Grow Light reflector.

lightrail3pr2Next, lets put that Grow Light on a LightRail

and move it back and forth about 30” .

Simply put, a stationary light is a SQUARE

A Light on a LightRail is a RECTANGLE.

Now let’s run 2 lights end to end, one on a

LightRail and the other on an Add a Lamp

 

Now duplicate the LightRail with an Add a Lamp, one row over for a wider RECTANGLE.

Or add another Add a Lamp to the other end, for 3 lights over an 18’ span

 

And you can do this over and over again and again, to best fit your space

 

Two 4’x12′ beds in a 14′ x 14′ space with room to walk around each bed.

 

Three 18’ x 4’ beds in a 20’ x 20’ space with room to walk around each bed.

 

Four 4’ x 12’ beds in a 20’ x 20’ space with room to walk around each bed 

 

So it’s easy to see: LightRail is simple, smart and scalable. You can go as big as you like, end to end and row after row. LightRail is customizable for any space.

Stationary is square, LightRail gives you a rectangle of benefits. Including closer lamp to plant tolerance without hot spots and stagnant shadow patterns. More coverage, of course. Better coverage, Absolutely!!

Because a moving light helps to achieve an optimum Leaf Area Index (LAI) by covering more of the plant with direct light at the correct intensity.

The above represents one LightRail  3.5 IntelliDrive Kit or LightRail AdjustaDrive 4.0 Kit. Each comes with one Drive Motor and  one 6’6” Rail complete with adjustable switch stops, mounting hardware and instructions. Both the 3.5 and 4.0 are built on the same platform so all accessories items fit either. Both have a  0 to 60 second  adjustable time delay for pausing the motor at the ends of the rail. This promotes even growth on the ends by helping to even out the “twice covered” center section of travel. The LightRail AdjustaDrive 4.0 also has  variable adjustable speed from 2 to 4 feet per minute for the ultimate control.  The 3.5 IntelliDrive is fixed at 4 feet per minute.

Above represents the LightRail Add a Lamp Kit which comes with one 6’6” Rail, one Auxiliary Trolley, and all the hardware necessary to install  to an existing 3.5 or 4.0 Drive Motor. As seen in the previous slides, two AAL Kits can be used with one 3.5 or 4.0 Drive Motor. For this scenario, we recommend upgrading to  our Extreme Duty Trolley Wheels.
