Transcend Lighting Launches “Next Gen” Chip Technology

New LED chips provide higher efficiency and brightness

New York, NY (July 11, 2017) – Transcend Lighting, Inc., leader in LED horticulture lighting,
announced today it will be incorporating its next generation LED chip technology into its grow light
fixtures. As a result of the chip upgrade, Transcend’s LED grow lights will compete at the highest
energy efficiency levels in the industry.

More specifically, Transcend’s LED Infinity light and Boost light will experience a 10% increase in
efficiency and brightness. These products will now operate at 2.2umols/joule, which rivals the
highest efficiency of any full spectrum white grow light on the market. According to Transcend
Lighting CEO, Brian Bennett, “This increase in efficiency further widens the gap between older
technologies such as fluorescent and metal halide when compared against our LED solutions. And we
are now clearly more efficient than even the best double-ended high pressure sodium fixtures.”
Bennett continued, “It’s important customers understand the relationship between efficiency and
spectrum. For example, although there are grow lights on the market with efficiencies as high as 2.7
umols/joule, those aren’t full spectrum solutions. Transcend’s LED fixtures provide a full, rich
spectrum that extends out into the deep red, which is critical to optimizing plant health and
production yield.”

Transcend Lighting will be exhibiting its high efficiency LED grow lights in booth #3748 at Cultivate
’17 in Columbus, Ohio from July 16-18.
