Z760 LED Light Sources are arrays of high-performance light emitting diodes (LEDs) that can operate in multiple regimes: flash, continuous light, harmonically modulated light, or they can work with a user-defined modulation. Different versions of the device vary spectrally from UVA to IR. The device can be used as a stand-alone unit or it can be integrated into other instruments, such as the Z200 Open – FluorCam, and Z150 Photobioreactor. Base LED Clusters can be used to outfit growth rooms.
- High light output – up to 3,000 µmol(photon)/m2/s at the distance of 20 cm (depends on the LED type).
- Measuring flash duration 10-40 µs
- Uniform light distribution over the desired area.
- Both panel and control unit cooling (automatic control).
- Hardware or software control of the light regime (flashes, continuous light, used-defined modulation), timing, and intensity.
- Different color versions varying spectrally from UVA to Infra-Red
standard colors available: white cold, white warm, blue royal, red-orange, red, blue, green
tri-color versions available in 20x20cm and 20x30cm sizes.
- Long longevity of LEDs (6-7 yrs)
- Growth of plants
- Illumination of rooms
- Algal growth
