During the GreenTech in Amsterdam, Climalux presented the new Power Supply Unit (SMC 4000) developed in-house.
The SMC 4000 power supply is a 4 kW continuously dimmable LED driver, which supplies power to up to four CLX V1000 grow lights. The PSU works on a stand-alone basis and can be controlled externally via the Climalux Horticultural Control Unit, possibly linked to external horticultural process computers such as Hoogendoorn, Priva, and Ridder, in accordance with the Horti Lighting Protocol (HLP).
The new external PSU has a low inrush current and very high electrical efficiency, according to the company. The SMC 4000 is infinitely dimmable and separately adjustable for work and/or growth light. Because the hardware is not built-in, the lamp retains its compact shape, and less shadow is created in the greenhouse. In addition, the user is flexible in his choice of placement, and several luminaires can be connected to one PSU.
The Climalux grow light system has been developed in-house and is largely produced in the Netherlands and other European countries. So is the new PSU. Because the product is manufactured in-house, Climalux retains control over development and production, can respond quickly to market demands, and can better monitor product safety and reliability.
The power supply meets the requirements of IP67, which guarantees that the product is dust and immersion-proof. The SMC 4000 also meets the applicable CE standards.
