PBAR refers to Plant Biologically Active Radiation and designates the spectral range from 280–800 nm. According to the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineering (ASABE), PBAR covers a more substantial range of light that affects plant biology. The PBAR measurement includes the PAR band from 400–700 nm as well as the ultraviolet radiation band of 280–400 nm and the infrared radiation band of 700–800 nm. Active Grow reports both the PAR and PBAR values for all product specifications as the 280-800 nm range is becoming more widely recognized and incorporated into industry lighting standards.
Active Grow Spectrum Formulas
The Sun White Pro + Spectrum is a
commercial grade spectrum designed for growing plants from start to finish.
Increased blue light creates tighter internodal spacing and higher terpene
content. Balanced red light promotes healthy flowering rates.
The Entourage 2.0 Spectrum has been upgraded using the latest research from the field to further improve plant growth and grower usability. Deep red light was increased for healthier flower and fruit development. Far-red light was increased resulting in more Emerson Enhancement Effect which boosts the natural rate of photosynthesis. To balance the additional reds, deep blue light was added to improve root growth, stem strength, internodal spacing and flower structures. The spectrum has a high CRI of 93 to help growers spot pests and plant deficiencies. The new Entourage 2.0 Spectrum is guaranteed to grow consistent, high quality plants and create a comfortable working environment for your operation.
This all-natural light spectrum boosts healthy growth rates for house plants, microgreens, flowers, fruits and more. By mimicking sunlight conditions with a high CRI of 95, the Sun White Spectrum will make your garden look more vivid and it will be easier to detect pests and deficiencies before they spread. This truly full-spectrum light extends beyond the traditional PAR range (400-700 nm) to include far-red wavelengths that increase photosynthesis rates via the Emerson Effect.
The Sun White Pro Spectrum is a commercial grade plant production spectrum formulated with higher blue light content and dedicated 660 nm (red) light in balance to promote strong root development, tight internodal spacing, higher rates of phytochemical production and increased flavonoid content.
When we say bright, we mean BRIGHT. This full-spectrum light is designed to achieve maximum PAR range (400-700 nm) efficacy for high light intensity requirement plants and is especially effective in the vegetative stage.
The coolest spectrum around features 450 nm (blue) wavelengths and full-spectrum 6500K white light designed specifically for promoting the healthy development of mushrooms during incubation and fruiting cycles.
The Greenhouse Spectrum is a commercial grade full-spectrum light formulated using 450 nm (blue), 660 nm (red) and pure white light to assist natural sunlight and improve plant growth from start to finish. This spectrum builds stronger roots, increases budding sites and delivers healthy flower and fruit production.
Pink light is power, and not a photon is wasted with this chlorophyll-boosting, full-spectrum light that hits precisely on 450 nm (blue) and 660 nm (red) wavelengths. This spectrum also features additional far-red light that increases plant photosynthesis rates via the Emerson Effect. Designed to increase plant mass, speed up plant growth and promote healthy carotenoid development, budding and fruiting.
The Red Boost Spectrum delivers heavy deep red light and blue light wavelengths to effectively boost vegetative and blooming plant mass. The results for commercial plant production facilities are larger and healthier fruits, flowers and vegetables.
