Due to the modular design of the PLASMA SUN, the system can be adapted to any conceivable application.
The PLASMA SUN is a high-quality light source for many different markets as it offers highly efficient and energy-saving solutions at the same time.
There are many possible applications of the PLASMA SUN in horticulture. Any agricultural crop can be cultivated efficiently under the PLASMA SUN.
The PLASMA SUN makes Sun Simulation and Photovoltaic Testing easy. The pure continuous sun spectrum is directly delivered by the bulb as light output, so that special equipment, such as dichroic filters or additional luminaires, is not needed.
The natural sunlight that is emitted by the PLASMA SUN has several positive influences in industrial lighting applications.
The main advantage for horticultural purposes is the true full spectrum of the PLASMA SUN, which strengthens the plants during their development. Among others, they develop a higher proportion of vitamins and nutrients as they absorb more of them.
The plants develop healthier under the PLASMA SUN and exploit their genetic potential significantly more. In addition to improving the quality, the formation of biomass increases by up to 75%.
Additionally, the true sunlight of the PLASMA SUN prevents any kind of transplant shock.
The use of pesticides and chemicals is significantly reduced by using the PLASMA SUN. The reason for this is the healthy plant development under the PLASMA SUN. The susceptibility to pest infestation and fungal diseases of the plants is demonstrably reduced.
At the same time, using the PLASMA SUN significantly reduces energy costs. Due to the visible light output of around 80%, the PLASMA SUN is on the one hand much more efficient than conventional greenhouse lamps and at the same time emits less heat. Thus, the cooling costs are reduced.
Plants grow faster under the PLASMA SUN than under any other artificial light source. Depending on the crop, this can save a lot of time. In some cases it is possible to increase the number of annual harvest while maintaining the same costs.
Using the PLASMA SUN in an indoor system creates a win-win situation. You manage to combine the advantages of a controlled environment set-up with the light of an outdoor set-up.
Under the PLASMA SUN the plants develop like outdoor, but can be precisely controlled regarding to other environmental parameters.
The PLASMA SUN brings together the best of both worlds.
The PLASMA SUN is also particularly suitable as an Assimilation Light, since the plants do not have to get used to a different (artificial spectrum) when the Assimilation Light is switched on. Instead, the PLASMA SUN provides the same quality of light as when the real sun is shining.
If necessary, light sensors can be installed, which are determined for a light value. The output of the lamp then automatically adapts to the lighting conditions on site and always ensures that the planned amount of light is available to the plants at all times.
In 2010 the Wageningen University did a study on the growth of cucumber plants under assimilation lighting.
The plasma light (with its artificial solar spectrum) was one of the light sources that have been compared and it outperformed its competitors.
As a massively expanding market the Medical Cannabis Industry has difficulties to satisfy the demand with their current production equipment. By utilizing the PLASMA SUN for the cultivation, they manage to increase their productivity at a rising quality while reducing their expanses for electricity.

AAA-class bulb with a CRI of 99
+/- 2% uniformity possible (depending on the optical set-up)
AM1.5G solar spectrum
Adjustable in intensity in a range down to 50% power input without change of the spectrum
The bulbs of the PLASMA SUN have a lifetime of up to 100,000 hours of operation. There will occur no shift in spectrum over time. Due to the absence of electrodes in the bulb, the light output is stable and flicker-free at any time, also during dimming.
Our parabolic reflector provides a parallel beam. The diameter of the spot in 1-meter distance is 50 centimeter and provides an intensity of 2-3 suns. Our pyramid reflector is a diffusing reflector. The parabolic and the pyramid reflector are our standard models. We also offer to possibility to develop a customized solution for our 360° light source.
When the PLASMA SUN is used to light up production areas, a better productivity of the humans that work under the light will be the result. At the same time the light increases the wellbeing which leads to a decrease of accidents on the workplace. So, the PLASMA SUN helps to increase industrial safety.
Especially in shift operations this is beneficial. Mental and physical fatigue occurs later than with synthetic lights, so that the quality of daytime and nighttime work becomes more constant.
