Cultivation Shelves
Research under controlled growing conditions
About...

Cultivation Shelves are manufactured with LED-based illumination and they serve for controlled cultivation of plants. Cultivation Shelves are usually equipped with white and FAR LEDs.

The system consists of illuminated shelves (maximum is 8 shelves in one unit) and the control unit Light Controller LC 100. One Light Controller can in parallel control up to 16 Cultivation Shelves. Light Controller enables full light control in intensity, modulation and timing (optional protocols are also available).

Key Features

  • Illumination: adjustable in intensity (from 0 to 100 %), timing, modulation, and diurnal cycling
  • LED technology with minimum undesired plant heating
  • White LED illumination with supplementary FAR LEDs


  • PPFD up to 250 µmol.m-2.s-1 at the distance of 30 cm (standard; higher PPFD as an option)
  • Homogeneous illumination over 80 % of the cultivation area

The shelves are height-adjustable with 25 mm step. For higher plants, single shelves can be just easily removed from the system. PAR is ranging up to 250 µmol.m-2.s-1 (measured at 30 cm from the LED panel).

Light Controller LC 200

LC 200 is a hardware, stand-alone solution for precise control of light characteristics and day/night simulation in the Cultivation Shelves. It provides precise control over the light mode, intensity and timing (seconds to days) and maintains also generation of short pulses (micro-seconds). It can control up to 8 logical light channels, formed from up to 254 physical light devices. Each logical light channel can be configured and controlled independently. Light Controller supports light modulation according to a predefined function (continuous, pulse, sine, triangle), user-programmed function (optional), or daylight simulation (optional). No PC is needed for this device operation.

User-Defined Custom Protocol

Optional feature to the Light Controller LC 100: when uploaded to Light Controller, this Protocol can support up to 224 light phase intervals, each defined by light intensity and duration.

Daylight Protocol

Optional feature to the Light Controller LC 100: when uploaded to Light Controller, the Daylight Protocol serves for cloudy skies simulations - several adjustable parameters. Includes also additional program for "cloud visualization" on a PC.

Additional Protective Glasses

Radiation safety glasses protecting against excessive LED radiation – equipped with side cover and protective filters. One pair of glasses is provided with the device free of charge.
