Fluence SPYDR 2i
The High PPFD cultivation method uses light intensity that could be harmful to the crop if not an additional quantity of CO2 were added to the air in the growing area. A boosted quantity of CO2 of 800 to 1,400 PPM (normally this is 400 PPM, 0.04%), in other words, a percentage of 0.08 to 0.14%, will enable a plant to safely transform that huge light intensity into carbohydrates and energy. The beneficial effect for the grower is that, due to this, the life cycle of his plants is significantly accelerated and, additionally the yield is increased up to 20%. I.e.: High PPFD Cultivation will generate more crop in less time.
The SPYDR 2i is a lamp which can, figuratively, easily burn your fingers. For growers who have little experience with the use of extra CO2 in their nursery rooms, this lamp is not suited. The extreme quantity of light the 2i produces is extremely harmful for your plants if you do not continuously measure the CO2 levels in your nursery room, and keep it at the right level all the time. The SPYDR 2i of course also produces a quantity of UV light, which, in comparison, is much higher than of other LED nursery lamps. When working under the SPYDR 2i, it is particularly important to cover your skin with clothing, and protect your eyes with the proper means.
The Fluence SPYDR 2i is fitted with a PhysioSpec Indoor spectrum, developed by Fluence themselves. This is a tailor-made spectrum for the indoor grower and intended for the entire life cycle of your plants. So, also seedlings, shoots and clones will feel very comfortable in the light of this lamp. The PhysioSpec Indoor spectrum scores 85 on the CRI-scale, meaning that the radiated light is excellently suitable for the work and research conditions in which natural, lively colours and proper contrast are essential. The Fluence SPYDR 2i does not include a built-in dimmer. This can be obtained separately only. One dimmer can be connected up to 50 SPYDR 2s.
The Fluence SPYDR 2i is a professional LED grow light, highly efficient in energy consumption. Thanks to the large light surface, the light is distributed quite evenly across the growth surface and will have no trouble penetrating the foliage. The materials used by Fluence, the straightforward design and the lack of fans make the Fluence SPYDR 2i a soundless, solid grow light that will last for many years, hassle-free. The Fluence SPYDR 2i can be connected to the mains electricity as stand-alone or in daisy-chain. This LED grow light is suitable for use in racking (vertical farming), cultivation tables and in grow tents. A hanging fixture is included.
High PPDF-growing with CO2 requires knowledge of photosynthesis and the effect of CO2 on your plants. It is important to realise that in case of too little CO2 in the air, the bright light cannot be transformed into energy and carbohydrates, as a result of which your plants may get damaged. On the other hand, the additional CO2 in the growing area will only be transformed in case there is sufficient light intensity. Using the extremely powerful Fluence SPYDR 2i that is one thing you needn’t worry about.
