315W CDL Agro lamp is made by Philips Lighting, belongs to the ceramic discharge lamp (CMH) family, also known as CDM and LEC. The 2011 Progress Report by Illuminating Engineering Society of America (IES) stated as follows: “Philips Lighting introduces MasterColor CDM Elite Agro 315-W T12 metal halide lamps for horticulture market. These lamps reported to support excellent Photosynthetic Photon Flux or PPF with a value of 1.9 micromole per second which is comparable to 600W high-pressure sodium.”
Boulderlamp, Inc (BLI) integrates the Philips 315W agro lamp with electronic gear, light fixture, and optics into each product providing the most efficient and reliable grow light.
Philips 315W CDL agro lamp is engineered to provide maximum amount of blue and red spectrums as well as certain amount of all other spectrums for Optimum growth for all types of plants. Unlike LED grow lights, using the same 315W CDL grow light one can grow lettuce, tomato, and 600 strains of cannabis plants.
To further increase production efficiency, BLI’s patent pending CDL+LED grow light integrates certain red LEDs into the CDL light fixture. Our first generation of CDL+LED grow lights increase yield at least by 15% while using the same amount of electricity. A slimline CDL+Blue LED grow light is also introduced for improving plant growth efficiency during vegetative stage.
