Korean light-emitting diode maker Seoul Semiconductor said on Feb. 12 that it has supplied its LEDs for horticulture lighting products developed by Rofianda B.V, a Dutch lighting solution company.
LED lighting is often used by farmers in cultivating crops, to overcome difficulties in plants receiving enough sunlight.
Seoul Semiconductor’s SunLike Series LED generates light with a similar spectrum to natural sunlight. It enables the Dutch company’s LED lighting systems to produce a full spectrum of light wavelengths from 380 to 740 nanometers, similar to the spectral curve of sunlight. As the LED produces a color temperature of 5600 K, the same as daylight, it creates optimal conditions for cultivation, according to the firm.
“The horticulture lighting market is growing fast, and our SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs will offer considerable benefits for customers to achieve optimal horticulture lighting solutions,” said Nam Ki-bum, sales and marketing vice president of the Korean firm.
“We are pleased to expand this horticulture LED portfolio and will further diversify the customer base worldwide,” added Nam.
The SunLike LEDs are the result of yearslong collaboration with Japanese materials firm Toshiba Materials.
