PPF: Photosynthetic Photon Flux
RGB: Red Green Blue
LED: Light Emitting Diode
Early production versions of the FloraLamp use three discrete LED for red, green, and blue. However, we initially intended the unit to use a custom LED created specifically for Light Emitting Computers, Inc. according to our requirements for the optimal fulfillment of Dr. Folta's concept. This (global patent pending) LED design incorporates multiple plant specific wavelengths of light in a single RGB package. This becomes possible as the very latest ultra high power RGB LED packages are designed to carry up to three emitters for each of the three primary human visual colors. Our patent protected design utilizes existing RGB manufacturing infrastructure to produce an LED for a purpose far removed from the original design of the classic RGB LED. With three emitter die in each of three circuits, the LEC PPF-RGB-LED(tm) can emit broadband photomorphic plant spectra with three channel PMMS control.
A PPF-RGB-LED includes up five peak power frequencies in a single LED package. With a single shade of green (525nm), two shades of blue (450nm & 470nm) and two shades of red (670nm and 640nm).
These special patent protected LED are immediately available from us as discrete components in a variety of power levels: 3, 5, and 10 watts.
The 10 watt will sell for $25USD each, and can be provided at less expense when ordering in bulk.
