Controlled environment agriculture or indoor farming has increased dramatically, providing billions of people around the world with access to fresh and nutritious food, while also supporting global sustainability initiatives.
Luminaires and grow systems specifically designed for horticultural applications are a critical element in these innovative environments. None of the previously available standards and requirements for conventional luminaires and lighting systems fully address all of the unique safety and performance requirements that are applicable to horticultural lighting.
UL 8800, the Standard for Safety for Horticultural Lighting, and UL S 8000, the Horticultural Lighting Performance Specification, are a unique set of requirements providing safety, performance and reliability testing specifically designed for horticultural luminaires, lighting components and grow systems.
In this webinar, you will gain insights into:
- The standards and test methods that are commonly used for luminaires and lighting systems
- UL 8800 - Standard for Safety for Horticultural Lighting Equipment:
- Targeted scope
- Photobiological effects
- UV exposure
- Environmental considerations
- UL S 8000 - Horticultural Lighting Performance Specification: features that are in line with DLC and provide you the opportunity to differentiate your products.
