BIOS Icarus™ Gi2 LED Grow Light

The BIOS IcarusTM Gi2 is the controlled environment agricultural industry’s superior choice for commercial crop production applications. The thoughtfully inspired Icarus Gi2 has the highest Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) output and PAR photon efficacy in a truly industrial grade LED fixture specifically designed for the industry. The Gi2 has an optimized broad spectrum that maximizes photosynthesis and plant growth while also providing for a very comfortable visual experience that allows for ideal conditions for crop assessment.

Engineered for science, this optimized industrial grade LED fixture is unique in that it meets the demanding requirements for commercial crop production with superior performance, energy efficiency, durability, and competitive cost that is lacking in the LED grow light market today.

Features and Benefits

  • Fully assembled, industrial grade constructions and durability
  • Optimized spectrum for all phases of plant growth and production
  • Scientifically engineered spectrum to maximize photosynthesis, growth, and yield
  • >40% less energy consumed and heat generated to produce an equivalent amount of delivered PAR than 1000W HPS
  • Superior delivered PAR output and PAR photon efficacy than 1000W HPS
  • Superior lighting uniformity across the plant canopy
  • Passive cooling design eliminates inferior features such as fans, moving parts, and noise
  • Sustainable and environmentally friendly mercury-free lighting source compared to traditional technologies (HID and fluorescent) requiring hazardous waste disposal
  • Adjustable LED panels allowing for more focused or more diffuse lighting distribution over the plant canopy
  • Applications: Indoor crop production, greenhouses, growth chambers, retro-fit existing HID or new construction controlled environment grow facilities
