TSRgrow introduces revolutionary approach to horticulture

TSRgrow, one of the leading horticulture solutions providers, has announced Lighting as a Platform (LaaP), a revolutionary technology that delivers unparalleled results to indoor growers, while significantly reducing up-front and long-term operating costs

LaaP brings together TSRgrow’s solutions for commercial horticulture growing into one digital platform: Centralised Power Server Technology, highest performance LED Lighting and integrated software applications with sensor feedback technology for real time monitoring and control. LaaP maximises efficiency while cutting costs in Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) facilities. TSRgrow LaaP is revolutionising commercial horticulture.

LaaP eliminates local ballast equipment on each fixture from the growing area. By centralising power in the grow facility, installation and maintenance costs are reduced and simplified. By removing ballast heat from the grow area, growers can reduce their HVACD cooling load requirements and equipment CAPx. These benefits are just the beginning. 

LaaP produces greater light intensity and more uniform canopy coverage for each grow, reducing the total number of fixtures needed, further reducing capital expenditures. 

Compatible with Cogen, solar and microgrids, LaaP remote power servers connect directly to the AC grid or can integrate with Solar, DC storage, micro grids or Cogen systems. Power monitoring provides real time reporting of energy usage while providing full control of every lighting fixture in the grow area, maximising yields while saving energy. “Designed for commercial horticulture, LaaP unites lighting, power and monitoring into one integrated system,” said Mikhail Sagal, president of TSRgrow. “It provides growers the ability to maximise their yields reducing their operating costs.”

LaaP integrates with TSRgrow’s TOTALgrow solution, giving growers deeper insights across every aspect of their operation.

Additional benefits include simplified installation and maintenance, monitoring and control dashboards accessible from anywhere, and the highest performance designed for horticulture LED fixtures on the market. Featuring power servers with the industry’s highest efficacy and lowest iTHD throughout the dimming range (0-100%), LaaP is Utility recommended and helps drive down facility operating costs for long term sustainability of your indoor, vertical or greenhouse facility.

“Taking all of the ballasts out of the flower rooms and putting then into a full IT server room, has helped us do right by our plants and our facility. Since we are using TSRgrow’s Lighting as a Platform, we have the ability to control our environment outside of our grow in a designated server room where we do all of our monitoring.

“During our recent 200,00 sqft expansion project, the TSRgrow team was there to help us every step of the way. Before you buy, do your research. TSRgrow is a true platform technology-based company. Not just because of the lights and the technology, but also because they are a true partner to help you grow. We will be using them again during our next expansion project,” said Cliff Miller, president, Norman K, Auburn, Maine.
