LED GRASS CARE TECHNOLOGY
The RSI Rhenac Sports LED CLS technology helps stadium owners maintain a green turf. The color rendering produced by these LED lighting rigs stimulate germination, the development of premature grass blades and pitch regeneration. Proper grass growth conditions are usually hindered by non-conducive venue design.
Complete Light Spectrum Technology
Redefining perfect in perfect pitch management
Rhenac Sports LED technology is the only lighting technology that is capable of delivering the Complete Light Spectrum (CLS). This spectrum ranges from ultraviolet to infrared light. Different wavelengths have different functions. This can only be utilized when using LED technology.
A red color is required for grass seeds to germinate and to increase biomass. Blue light will increase the sward density and enhance root growth. It also reduces the length growth of the plant. As a side effect, an increased dose of blue light will also reduce the grass’ susceptibility to diseases.
Producing blue light without consuming much electricity only became possible with the latest generation of LEDs.
Replicating various colors and lighting settings requires a thorough understanding of LED technology, the use of high-quality LEDs, and a sophisticated control system.
Rhenac GreenTec AG has fine-tuned LED technology to stimulate plant growth and crop improvement since the start of the century. Since 2010, Rhenac GreenTec works together with the Biocenter of the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich. There they study the interactions between light and grass through various life-stages.
Rhenac Sports LED combines our technical LED expertise with the research results of Munich University with regards to light quality and intensity that grass needs. The ability to deliver any color in the light spectrum allows the Rhenac Sports LED the flexibility to continuously adjust to locally changing weather conditions and to deliver accordingly.
ABOUT RSI-RHENAC SPORTS LED
Rhenac Sports LED was the first company to recognize the significance of supplementing grass pitches with a balanced combination of blue and red colors. Together with scientists from the Technical University of Munich, Rhenac Sports LED established the exact dose blue or red parts of the visible spectrum. This is the type of light that stimulates photosynthesis for grasses.
They were also the first to succeed in packaging this knowledge in rigs with LED grass grow lighting technology. The highly accurate LED technology used delivers this dose with pinpoint accuracy onto the sections of the field where additional care is needed. The Rhenac Sports LED technology has a reduced energy consumption and produces less heat compared to conventional sodium vapor luminaires used in out dated technology.
RSI offers three different units:
WE FIGHT COVID19 IN NATURAL GRASS WITH OUR UV-C GRASS CARE TECHNOLOGY
Apart from using LED technology to stimulate germination and grass growth, Rhenac Sports LED has also developed a sustainable and environmentally-friendly grass disease control. It treats algae, fungus and diseases commonly experienced in natural grass fields. Our UV-C machine, 6 meters wide can help fight COVID19 in Natural Turf.
The Rhenac Sports LED UV-C specifically produces a defined green colour that frustrates the growth of fungus and algae on any surface. The light can also be used as a plant diseases treatment.
The UV-C unit folds out to a width of 6m. It fits on any tractor commonly used by grounds maintenance crews. Thanks to special foam makers, a full-size football field can be treated within 30 to 45 minutes. An adjusted version is available that can be used for golf courses or other areas where slopes occur. Documented data show a 95% reduction of fungus and algae can be achieved when a field is treated two or three times a week.
The Rhenac Sports LED UV-C has proven to be effective on both natural turf and synthetic turf surfaces. Adopting this method allows clubs and venue owners to save on pesticides or the need for special permits.
OUR 6M WIDE LED UV-C LIGHTING FIGHT COVID19 IN NATURAL TURF
The pitch management system of the future has arrived. The R-BL system powered by the latest LED lighting technology will automatically change its light spectrum depending on the ever-changing weather conditions. It is a fully automated system with integrated LED lighting, sprinkling, fertilizing, disease blocking, infra-red lighting and measuring system. Designed for high-end stadiums to cover half (3,500m2) or a complete pitch (7,000m2) without touching the natural turf.
INFLUENCE OF LIGHT EXPLAINED
All plants require light and CO2 for photosynthesis. Stimulating or adjusting the Daily Light Integral (DLI) can help reducing the rooting time of cuttings and seedlings, and increasing crop quality.
Light is the driving force for photosynthesis, the process that changes sunlight into chemical energy within plants and grasses. During photosynthesis, water is split in a chemical reaction and separated into oxygen and hydrogen. In this process carbon dioxide (CO2) is converted into sugar.
A general rule of thumb is that 1% more light will produce a similar percentage increase in growth, resulting in a 1% higher yield.
- Speed up germination and recovery
- More dense, stable and healthy pitch
- Sustainable solution for maintaining natural grass pitches
- Easy to use
