In partnership with Biological Innovations and Optimization Systems (BIOS) Lighting, Lumileds has engineered a circadian lighting solution that delivers superior melanopic ratios at comfortable CCTs – 3000K, 3500K and 4000K – with industry-leading efficacy and uniformity at the lowest solution cost. The new solution comprised LUXEON SkyBlue and white LUXEON 3030 HE Plus LEDs eliminates the challenging technical and spectral analysis and engineering and enables a single-channel driver to support circadian lighting.
LUXEON SkyBlue is specified by CCT for melanopic ratio, CRI and R9, efficacy, and luminous flux and produces light within a 3 MacAdam ellipse space. Lumileds’ unique knowledge eliminates the complex analysis, binning, and supply chain issues that typically challenge a luminaire manufacturer and add to the cost and complexity of developing a solution.
Commenting on the development, Lumileds’ Head of Marketing, Willem Sillevis-Smitt, said, “Integrating BIOS Lighting’s expertise in circadian lighting spectral requirements with Lumileds expertise in LED and solution development enabled this breakthrough approach to luminaire development. Our direct access to the full production from our factories and the detailed information we have about every LED allows us to dramatically simplify engineering for OEMs.”
