The EPAPILLON offers many advantages over conventional luminaires. Quite simply, it uses the same amount energy to produce more light. This is achieved by combining a superior reflector (95% efficiency) with the brighter Double Ended 1000 watt EL lamp. Giving the EPAPILLON package the highest PAR output per watt.
The design of the reflector allows for easy removal, for cleaning and replacement.
The EPAPILLON uses a safety cover that provides a thermal buffer between the hot reflector material and any objects that it may come in contact with. The protective cover reduces the surface heat from 390°F down to 160°F.
The Open Reflector Functionality directs more light to the canopy while trapping considerably less heat. Heat is allowed to rise away from the canopy more efficiently.
The heat that is generated on the lamp surface is not transferred directly to the plant, but indirectly, with air acting as a carrier. Using the open reflector concept, a natural air current is created, with which the heat is distributed evenly throughout the environment, thereby preventing the formation of hotspots on the plant. The Reflector allows heat to dissipate away from the canopy, greatly reducing garden hotspots and increasing overall lamp life (less heat buildup).
The higher density reflective material allows for regular cleaning.
Lights Interaction’s patented reflectors have a yield of 95% (measured in a Laboratory certified by the British Standardization institute). The lux values achieved by luminaires with these reflectors are as much as 10% higher than by conventional luminaires resulting in more PAR light to the plant canopy.
Using a completely different production process, Lights Interaction is able to use a reflector material of a high surface density and a high reflection capacity. The reflector is designed to reduce the heating-up of the lamp to the minimum possible extent. As a result, there is a lower drop in the light output of the lamp in the course of its life.
In short, our reflector produces more light (light output of 95%- Light Output Ratio), a broader beam of growth light that penetrates deeper into the plant and lower lamp luminosity rate thanks to a relatively low reflector temperature.
