Wash., Dec. 22, 2021 – PRESS RELEASE –
The Hawthorne Gardening Company, a wholly
owned subsidiary of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company, has announced the securing
of multiple patents related to the design and functionality of the Gavita CT
1930e LED light.

Gavita CT 1930e includes innovative state-of-the-art technology that is covered
by various U.S. and international design and utility patents and patent
applications, positioning the product’s optics, design and unique construction
among industry leaders. The novel technology package of the Gavita CT 1930e
brings unique benefits to growers of all sizes and a new level of performance
for LED fixtures.

“The issuance of these patents is a testament to the revolutionary design and
performance of the Gavita CT 1930e,” said Chris Hagedorn, president, Hawthorne
Gardening Company. “Beyond providing cultivators with a highly energy efficient
LED with proven growing power, this further demonstrates Hawthorne’s commitment
to leverage our R&D, technical services and distribution capabilities to
help growers achieve short- and long-term success.”

Gavita CT 1930e was introduced in 2020 and is among Hawthorne’s—as well as
ScottsMiracle-Gro’s—most successful product launches ever. It is the first and
only LED fixture that is a direct 1:1 replacement for HPS fixtures.
Compatibility with wiring and electrical requirements for most indoor growing
environments means this compact toplight can dramatically limit the cost and
downtime required to convert facilities of every size. The CT 1930e also
delivers more uniform, full-spectrum light at up to 20% energy savings than
single-ended HPS fixtures (based on average wattage of each fixture). The CT
1930e is Design Light Consortium (DLC) certified and can qualify for additional
savings through local energy rebates (region dependent).

patent-pending controller technology embedded within each Gavita CT 1930e
enables control of up to 2,000 fixtures per EL Series Master Control channel
and helps maintain unwavering output from light to light. These product
innovations seamlessly combine together, and with other Hawthorne offerings, to
deliver an unrivaled high-performance technology solution for high-performance
environments. For more information on the Gavita CT 1930e and other Hawthorne
