A Powerful Estimation Tool …
Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ software as a service allows horticultural luminaire and greenhouse manufacturers to provide their clients with quick estimates of how many luminaires they will need to achieve the client’s specified light levels from any desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone with internet access.
Using Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ it will take only a few minutes to model a greenhouse or vertical farm, whereas it might take an in-house applications engineer an hour or more to do the same using other available software. This saves time and money for the manufacturer, and ultimately the client.
There are several advantages of using Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ over other available software:
- First and foremost, Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ is explicitly designed for horticultural lighting. In the first release, the layout of tables or trays and luminaires will be done automatically, saving the designer from specifying their positions.
- Second, Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ can model individual trays in vertical farms. When the trays are stacked with lighting above each tray, the lighting of the trays rather than the entire room is of primary importance.
- Third, an upcoming release of Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ will integrate climate-based annual daylighting with supplemental electric lighting in greenhouses, enabling designers to determine the optimum design that combines both light sources.
The lighting design calculation engine in Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ is a proven tool. Developed by Ian Ashdown, Cerise365 is the significantly enhanced successor to the calculation engine used in Agi32 and ElumTools.
