In the modern working world, human beings and their concerns have become increasingly important. Lighting supports this trend with groundbreaking concepts for Human Centric Lighting (HCL), which focus on humans and the optimal light for their needs.
For example, they bring the natural course of daylight and its biological effects into indoor areas. This is achieved by using artificial light with the right brightness and color temperature to supplement the daylight. The interplay of light and room climate creates an atmosphere that has a positive impact on the well-being of humans as well as on their productivity and health.
Many industries today operate on a 24/7 schedule. This calls for extremely energy-efficient, durable, low-maintenance and robust lighting components which help to reduce lighting costs to a minimum.
Moreover, high ceilings and special production conditions in the various industries can necessitate a high quality of light with maximum light output and optimal CRI values, so that employees, as well as the machinery, can work flexibly and efficiently.
In many cases, the light must also show a low output ripple current, i.e. it has to be “flicker-free,” so that the functionality of modern machines or scanner systems remains unaffected.
