Fitotron High Specification Growth Chambers

Fitotron High Specification Growth Chambers

Fitotron® High Specification Plant Growth Chambers (HGC’s) are based on a modular design. Should your research requirements change, the chamber can be adapted to a new situation by exchanging or retrofitting your individual modules. In addition to three chamber sizes, it is possible to modify light sources and intensity, airflow direction, temperature range and the internal maximum growing height. This flexible design allows the chambers to be modified for different applications and as such, provides a ‘future-proof’ investment.

Lighting

The Fitotron® HGC range uses a combination of different lamps to simulate a daylight spectrum. Through the use of high frequency fluorescent lamps, dimming of light intensity from 100% to 10% is standard. 'Dawn/dusk' is simulated by the addition of a high proportion of red light. As an option, the height of the lamps can be adjusted using an external motor. This ensures that the growing conditions remain constant and the plants are not disturbed. Metal halide lamp modules with higher light intensities of 700 and 1000 µmols @ 500mm are available. The lamps are installed in a separate air-cooled lamp compartment, together with the UV light source.
