The new MegaDrive from California LightWorks is a professional grow light system that delivers excellent results while significantly reducing both up-front and long-term operating costs. By removing LED drivers from individual light fixtures, the MegaDrive eliminates the need for electrical power connections throughout the greenhouse or grow room.
The MegaDrive system consists of a large central power unit connected to a series of up to 30 LED fixtures in a chain. High-voltage, three-phase power can connect directly to the central power unit, eliminating power drops to each fixture. In addition, all the lights can be centrally controlled from the power unit. The result is up to 80% less installation cost and 30% less up-front fixture cost, according to the company.
The MegaDrive also features up to 3.5 micromoles per joule efficacy using Osram LEDs, Bluetooth Mesh wireless controls, light sensors for sunlight balancing and dynamic spectrum control. The system is UL listed, made in California and carries a five-year warranty.
