Lighting Science Group Unveils Dynamic VividGro™ V2 Led Grow Light Fixture
Jul 23 15
Lighting ScienceGroup Corporation announced the launch of its next-generation VividGro™ V2 LED Grow Fixtures, featuring spectral technologies and efficiency. This proprietary combination delivers one of the most effective LED grow fixtures in the horticulture industry. The VividGro™ V2 fixture is suitable for both commercial growers and the do-it-yourself horticulturalists across a wide range of applications, and has produced remarkable results in commercial indoor growing facilities, greenhouses and the fast-growing cannabis industry. The VividGro™ V2’s performance-engineered, broad color spectrum can significantly stimulate plant growth while drastically reducing energy consumption by utilizing specific lighting wavelengths - at 450 and 660 nanometers. The V2 Fixture has a rated life of 60,000 hours (L70), far longer than conventional high-pressure sodium (HPS) or other HID lamps, and significantly more than the life of many competing LED fixtures. Since VividGro™ V2 uses only 588 watts, far less energy than standard HPS fixtures, which typically use 1,000 watts, the energy savings are dramatic. LSG’s unique design delivers optimal photosynthetic active radiation of 1081 umol/sec at center beam and fixture efficiency at 1.838 umol/J. The VividGro™ V2 fixture has an “instant on” feature, can be cycled to maximize healthy plant growth and employs passive cooling, making it completely silent. The V2 fixture is IP65 rated for safe operation in wet and damp environments, and is also backed by a 5-year limited warranty to ensure trouble-free performance. The VividGro™ V2 LED Fixture features unmatched reliability and provides flexibility for growers, proving this resilient and superior performing LED grow solution is a safe, powerful and green alternative to traditional horticultural lighting.

Lighting Science Group Corporation Launches New Avenue Series
May 20 15
Lighting Science Group Corporation officially unveiled its AVENUE Series of LED roadway solutions during Lightfair 2015 to tremendous excitement and interest. AVENUE is the culmination of research and development efforts to revolutionize the infrastructure market and take roadway lighting to the next level. It currently contains two highly anticipated, next-generation products that are leading the way in their markets. Created to address the unique lighting needs of rural and remote communities with limited access to the electric grid, the FreeLED high efficiency luminaire system is a reliable, affordable and sustainable roadway illumination platform utilizing solar energy as its primary power source. The Mini street light possesses a smart, minimalist design that saves on lifecycle implementation costs from materials to installation and energy making it a low-maintenance, cost-effective LED solution. These advanced roadway lighting solutions will deliver big impacts in the infrastructure market. FreeLED is poised to take reliable and sustainable LED lighting to remote or off-grid locations that have traditionally suffered with limited options for affordable illumination. FreeLED patented technology includes dusk to dawn dimming, up to a three days discharge based on the selected profile, automatic battery cell balancing and the ability to withstand wind gusts up to 150 ph per AASHTO 2001 guidelines. The Mini was designed for customers looking for an affordable, energy efficient and optically superior LED street light system. Engineered for ease of installation, especially in locations that often lack stable, extensive or affordable infrastructure, its sleek design provides easy installation and reduced energy consumption. Compared to a traditional roadway fixture, the Mini is 22% more energy efficient, while using 75% less material. It has a built in photo-sensor for automatic on/off functionality and provides better quality light.
