BIOS Icarus™ Vi LED Grow Light

The BIOS Icarus Vi is the agricultural industry’s only LED fixture in the indoor grow lights market specifically designed for vertical farming grow light applications. With the highest Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) output and PAR photon efficacy in an industrial grade fixture, it is designed specifically for commercial crop production applications.

Measuring only 1.5” high and available in both high output (HO) and low output (LO) versions, the Icarus Vi fixture returns the grower’s precious cropping space and increases an indoor farm’s volume efficiency. Compared to the individual LED bars other manufacturers offer, the Icarus Vi significantly reduces the installation time and cost for HID equivalent PAR levels across the crop canopy. The optimized spectrum maximizes photosynthesis, plant growth and quality, while also providing a broad, visually acceptable spectrum enabling an accurate assessment of crop status.

Engineered for science, this unique industrial grade fixture fills the market need for a low profile, high output, energy efficient and cost competitive option that is lacking in the LED grow light market today.

Features and Benefits

  • Traditional off-board Class I LED driver power or optional centralized Class II digital electricity (VoltServer) to minimize installation costs and increase system efficiency
  • Universal rack system mounting features for improved ease of installation – ideal for 3’ or 4’ racking systems
  • Glass optics for spot-free cleaning and optimal light transmission in commercial crop production environments
  • Suitable spectrum for all phases of plant growth; scientifically engineered to maximize photosynthesis
  • 3x more blue radiation than HPS to promote improved plant morphology and quality
  • 40% less energy required to produce an equivalent amount of delivered PAR as 1000W HPS
  • Greater than 50% overall system efficiency as compared to 1000W HID
  • Up to 70% greater PAR photon efficacy than 1000W HPS
  • Passive cooling design eliminate inferior features such as fans, moving parts and noise
  • Sustainable and environmentally-friendly mercury-free lighting source compared to HID and fluorescent lighting systems requiring hazardous waste disposal
  • Specifically designed for indoor crop production, vertical farming systems, growth chambers, retro-fits of existing HID/fluorescent, or new construction grow facilities
