More and more, we are seeing special purpose grow lights as supplemental full spectrum grow lights. They are pretty amazing in grow light spectrum numbers. And, they require just a short time of plant interaction. So, the better way to deliver this quality grow light spectrum for short periods of time is this. These grow light systems need to move on LightRail light movers. It can be a LightRail 3.5 Kit, a LightRail 4.0 Kit or a LightRail 4.20 Kit. And, this is important to know. These indoor grow lights have a positive effect with a short duration indoor plant light interaction. So, we can move them farther than is typical. Moving these special full spectrum grow lights is the perfect solution to getting them effectively dispersed. And, that’s with quick hits of intense spectrum quality to all our plant surfaces.
Close and powerful grow light interaction
In a sense, indoor plant light is still indoor plant light, and some of the rules do not change for that. So, when we talk about short duration supplemental full spectrum grow lights, the operative word is supplemental. We will still need our other grow lights, hopefully, each moving on a grow light mover. And, as we picture those other grow lights, we want them close and powerful. Even within just maybe 15 inches of the canopy. That gives us perfect ppfd grow light interaction for the canopy.
A farther travel distance than the typical indoor grow light
With those regular standard grow lights, each moving within its own grow room design space, we can now do this. We can plan out these supplemental full spectrum grow lights. And, that’s to see where and how they will move in our grow room setup. And remember, these especially strong grow lights do not need much time at all per leaf area. So, we will move them. And, we will move them farther than the typical indoor grow light.
If a typical indoor grow light moves about three feet (1m) on its Rail thereby filling about a six foot area, we can do this. For the supplemental full spectrum grow lights, we can move them 2-3 times farther, or more. It’s just a slow hit of indoor plant light, and then a pass. The speed of this process would be about four feet per minute for the LightRail 3.5 Motor. And, that can be adjusted down to an adjustable 2-4 feet per minute for the LightRail 4.0 Motor.
A “quick hit” for our supplemental full spectrum grow lights
Again, we want to maximize this extra strong grow light. And, that’s to get all those good grow light spectrum numbers delivered close, maybe at 15-20 inches. We can only do that with LightRail light movers. If they were stationary, we would have a lot of canopy stress and heat. Closely intense, then off for a period and then back above is ideal. It’s like a “quick hit” or a fast pass for our supplemental full spectrum grow lights.
Rail alignment pins and auxiliary trolleys
For this grow equipment maneuvering as part of the grow room setup, we do this. We plan for longer light mover rail runs. And, we can do that in between our other indoor grow lights moving. That’s with each of those on their own rail area. So, the longer end to end light mover rails will be positioned in between our standard grow lights. And, that’s with no grow light system obstructions. And, here is an important detail to know. The Rails do not allow the Motor to cross the seam from one Rail to another. That’s unless we buy Rail Alignment Pins, which do allow that movement. And, we will need three per seam.
In addition, we might want to use auxiliary trolleys as a cord keeper. So, as our LightRail light mover motor goes out, those auxiliary trolleys follow. And, as part of this indoor grow kit, as the Motor comes back, they accordion back. It helps to make it a smooth indoor growing system.
Putting them on grow light movers is an ideal and efficient match
Supplemental full spectrum grow lights are a plus for our indoor grow room setup. They need to be on for just a short time per indoor grow room surface. So, moving them on LightRail light movers is ideal for getting a short, intermittent grow light system interaction with the canopy. And, it’s a way to maximize one indoor grow light over a distance. These special full spectrum indoor grow lights should not shine long but just enough to do what they do.
So, it’s an ideal and efficient match to put them on grow light movers and then to move them a longer distance than is typical. This grow equipment combination will maximize each full spectrum grow light in that ideal “quick hit” way. And, the plants will respond to that in that they are engaged but then with a longer rest period. This is the ideal way to get intense spectrum quality to all our plant surfaces at just the correct period of time.
