Artesyn Embedded Power is an Advanced Energy product brand and is well recognized as a global leader in the design and manufacture of highly reliable power conversion solutions for a wide range of industries including horticultural LED lighting, communications, computing, server storage, healthcare and industrial.
Our focus when creating power supplies for horticultural lighting is to minimize your power consumption, installation expense and the cost of cooling your facilities.
We offer a range of high power options (600 watt to megawatt), scaling from single conduction/IP-rated power supplies up to large distributed external systems ideal for vertical farms and large warehouse grow centers.
Our power supplies for individual luminaires and lower power applications are designed to provide full power in compact, high density packaging that weighs less than other commercially available products.
For large facilities, using a large centralized current source outside the environmentally controlled growth areas and distributing power directly to all the luminaires can help eliminate the need for individual drivers and the associated costs.
