Fluence Launches VYPR 3x and VYPR DUO 3x2 Featuring Diversified PhysioSpec™ Spectra and Unique Design Flexibility

Fluence by Osram (Fluence), a leading global provider of energy-efficient LED lighting solutions for commercial cannabis and agriculture production, today expanded its top light solutions and launched the VYPR 3x and VYPR DUO 3x2. The latest VYPR series additions feature Fluence's diversified PhysioSpec™ spectra and market-leading efficacies up to 3.7 µmol/J.

"This addition to the Fluence VYPR Series is just one example of how we are creating advanced solutions to meet growers' unique needs as they adopt LED technology into their facilities," said Timo Bongartz, Fluence's general manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa. "By offering products with a smaller form-factor that deliver high light output, growers who previously were unable to install supplemental lighting – due to restrictions in facility dimensions – now have a solution to leverage year-round crop production. We are pleased that the first growers in the Netherlands and Scandinavia will use this new solution in the upcoming winter season."

Featuring three new mounting options, the VYPR 3x distributes light uniformly across low-ceiling grow environments, reducing the need for additional fixtures per lit area and lowering operational expenses. The VYPR 3x2 features DUO remote and cradle mounts, disperses the same amount of light as VYPR 3p to larger areas, or doubles the photosynthetic photon flux (PPF) per truss installation.

With Fluence's expanded PhysioSpec™ from broad white to high red spectra, the latest VYPR top light fixtures offer higher efficacies (up to 3.7 µmol/J) and higher PPF (up to 1200 µmol/s) per fixture over comparable lighting technologies.

"Challenging cultivation environments require a unique, creative approach to supplemental lighting," said Lorrie Schultz, Fluence's senior vice president of marketing. "With VYPR's diversified spectra and greater application flexibility, our customers can now choose from a broader range of top light options, tailor lighting strategies to their specific growing environments and extend photoperiods while maximizing energy efficiency."

The new VYPR fixtures offer enhanced design flexibility, enabling growers in challenging or intricate lighting environments—such as greenhouses or indoor settings with constrained ceilings heights—to optimize light uniformity, spectral content and light levels.
