Heliospectra Changes Name of Recently Announced Light Control Software to HelioCORE

GOTHENBURG, Sweden, November 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Heliospectra AB (publ) (OTCQB: HLSPY, FIRSTNORTH: HELIO), a world leader in intelligent LED lighting technology for greenhouse and controlled plant growth environments, is changing the name of the recently announced light control software CORTEX to HelioCORE(TM), effective November 16, 2017. The new control system was introduced in July 2017 and will be available for commercial sales during Q1 2018.

The horticulture industry continues to automate their growing environments and push for increased control. HelioCORE connects Heliospectra's LX60 adjustable spectra and LX50 high voltage intelligent LED lighting solutions with sensors and schedule functions for real-time light adjustments. Growers monitor and manage lights or alerts across a facility via mobile phones, tablets or laptops to streamline operations.

"Operations and cultivation teams require a reliable, proven solution that directly impacts business performance and also facilitates or streamlines daily work," said Ali Ahmadian, CEO Heliospectra. "HelioCORE gives businesses an unrivaled solution when it comes to controlling harvest and production cycles with dynamic, immediate light adjustments and the cost-effective use of resources."

The initial release of the HelioCORE control software in early 2018 offers cultivation teams three control modules:

    --  DLI Controller: Greenhouse growers can regulate supplemental light use
        to reach Daily Light Integral (DLI) targets, supporting optimal plant
        growth and prioritizing lamp use at times of day when energy costs are

    --  On Target: Indoor growers can establish constant Photosynthetic Photon
        Flux Density (PPFD) levels to maximize plant efficiency and
        photosynthesis with optimum light intensity.  Greenhouse growers
        automate  dynamic light response to changes  in weather, low light
        seasons, natural light conditions and plant sensor feedback.

    --  Schedule: Cultivation teams can extend the photoperiod for long-day
        crops or induce flowering to accelerate harvest and shave days off
        production cycles. Growers can apply pre-set schedules and build a
        robust library of lighting strategies and treatments for specific crops
        or growth stages in sole-source indoor or supplemental lighting
