This online course focuses on a perfect workaround for Horticulture Lighting with DIALux evo. In the current topic of "Vertical Farming", light planners need to know how different spectra and light intensities influence plant processes and how to calculate these respective required values with a light calculation software. You will get the necessary knowledge to plan your greenhouse project with the professional lighting design software DIALux evo. Learn a workaround with the help of an Excel tool to convert photometric values to photosynthetic values. Additional to the photometric file (.uld, .ies or .ldt) of the luminaire and the calculation in DIALux evo you also need the spectral distribution.
