Poultry LED lighting system which combines all the benefits in a maximum optimized form. By using the Pollux poultry LED lighting system you will be able to recreate the exact light spectrum poultry enjoys in their natural habitat for the first time, by creating the basis for optimal and balanced development. Practical experiences, supported by scientific research, have shown an increase in animal welfare combined with optimized poultry production efficiency.
The poultry LED lighting system is easily programmable by using the user-friendly touchscreen interface. You will be able to change settings inline depending on animal development and behavior. As in nature, every day starts with a sunrise and ends with a sunset.
Depending on the type of stable and animals, different rest and de-energize moments can be programmed. Furthermore, the luminaries can be controlled in different groups, giving each individual a luminaire group different spectral and light intensity settings. Thus enabling optimal poultry LED lighting solution for each individual poultry stable layout containing, for instance, laying nests or a winter garden.
"We have been using Pollux lighting in our organic farm for laying hens since 2017 to improve animal welfare, among other things.
Due to the significant reduction of cannibalism, increased production and energy savings, the luminaire system has paid off within a year.
In our stables we will only install the Pollux poultry lighting from ME International in the future. "

ME International develops and produces innovative and energy-efficient LED lighting for poultry farming according to the highest German standards.
The indicators for the lighting project are field studies with carefully selected customers, systematic scientific observations under natural conditions and the latest findings from modern lighting research.
In accordance with our philosophy of many years, we only use high-quality materials from regional suppliers for our lighting system. The luminaire has an IP67 protection class and has also been ENEC certified. Due to its impeccable thermal testing, it is also suitable for installation in dust-laden stables without any problems and can be cleaned easily and in a user-friendly manner. The remarkable longevity of our luminaire is due to the use of the highest quality LED chips.
Six spectral bands create countless light compositions according to your specifications and wish with the help of UV, red, blue, yellow, infrared and further LED´s. With little effort, you support the development of the desired ones as well as the prevention of the unwanted behavior patterns of your birds.
" We always wanted to implement a lighting system for the geese, which rmimics the daylight and offers the birds the opportunity to wake up with the sunrise in an animal-friendly way and to come to rest with the sunset.
Thanks to the lighting from ME International, I have succeeded.
The animals are clearly feeling well. "
Ingmar, manager of geese production
Chickens see light differently than humans. Vision is the most developed sense. The bird´s retina has five kinds on cone cells, in contrary to humans who have only three. Birds are sensitive to UV light, which is of immense significance for them.
UV vision is not only important in navigation but also for communication with con-specifics (typal, gender-related and individual recognition), as also for food detection (ripeness of food, prey detection). They also recognize sick birds.
By getting an insight into how chickens perceive light, we have developed high-quality luminaires from the chickens prospective.
