Fluence Launches RAPTR, a High-Output LED Replacement for Legacy Lighting Technology
CANNANNEW REPORT

Featuring Fluence’s diverse spectral portfolio, RAPTR is a highly efficient and durable one-to-one replacement for high-pressure sodium fixtures AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fluence, a leading global provider of energy-efficient LED lighting solutions for commercial cannabis and food production, today launched RAPTR, the company’s latest high-output lighting solution built to replace 1,000-watt, high-pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures and maximize energy efficiency. Greenhouse and indoor growers are increasingly seeking more efficient, higher-output lighting solutions to reduce installation, operating and maintenance costs while increasing yield and plant quality. Recognizing the importance of maintaining consistency in harvest schedules while accommodating specific energy requirements, Fluence designed RAPTR to help enable cultivators to seamlessly retrofit their lighting solutions. In most cases, existing HPS electrical infrastructure such as cables or distribution panels can be reused for RAPTR—making it a true plug-and-play solution. “Retrofitting a facility with LED technology opens the door to more light, creates opportunities for greater yields and ultimately increases revenue,” said Jordon Musser, chief product officer of Fluence. “RAPTR is designed to lower operating expenses for cultivators, increase light levels or even achieve both without changing the existing facility layout.” Fluence’s ongoing global research exploring the effects of LED lighting on cannabis and produce crops has consistently shown that higher light intensities boost production at a nearly one-to-one ratio. Multiple Fluence research studies and customer trials found that, for every 1% increase in photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD), growers are achieving a corresponding 1% increase in yield. For commercial produce growers, increasing light output is certainly desirable but cannot come at the expense of energy efficiency. RAPTR achieves higher light levels than its HPS equivalent—boosting yields for cannabis and produce growers—while helping to optimize a facility’s energy usage. “We are in the business of meeting a grower’s goals, whether through a 100% LED lighting strategy or a…
