Human centric lighting can simulate the dynamic changes in light intensity and color temperature of outdoor light over the course of the day. HCL provides biologically optimized compositions of light to enhance concentration and productivity in the daytime working and learning environments while encouraging relaxation and regeneration during the night. Human centric lighting is devoted to mitigating physiological and psychological consequences resulting from the discrepancies between natural light and artificial light while also providing enhanced visual environments and improving people’s performance. The concept of HCL is deemed to be an integral part of lighting design for all environments where people live, work and learn.
While HCL should not be equated with tunable white lighting. Tunable white is just a technology used in HCL systems to provide spectral and intensity tuning of the LEDs. The human aspect of HCL is the most important. Human centric lighting will inevitably integrate more intelligence and networking capabilities to support the trend towards IoT for the best possible experience. With the use of sensors, wireless communications, adaptive controls, and software applications, human centric smart lighting systems are environmentally aware and intuitively controllable. Integration with third-party building automation systems and web-based IoT services brings interoperability to HCL systems for vastly improved lighting control, user interaction, energy efficiency as well as automated lighting calibration with the 24-hour biological cycle.
How it Works
Human cerntric lighting prevents user discomfort while increasing eye comfort and facilitates users’ concentration and creativity.
HCL easily creates a circadian prescription to change color and intensity during the day or night.
AVOID DARK ROOMS
Don’t allow users to walk into dark rooms with no light. Walking into toilets or car parks without lighting can make occupants feel less safe.
Well-positioned sensors and standby lighting levels can ensure occupants are not walking into dark areas.
User comfort is affected when they are walking into areas where lights instantly turn on or off.
The use of DALI dimmable drivers and lighting control can be used to control how the lighting reacts.
Natural lighting at the right light intensity makes working easier on the eyes.
Human Centric Lighting ensures greater productivity and concentration in the workplace.
HCL supports our natural biorhythm and ensures greater well-being.
DYNAMICS AND ATMOSPHERE
Dynamic light provides a suitable atmosphere for every situation, whether working or taking a break.
Proper lighting design can lower the glare of luminaires and makes people work and live in a more comfortable area.
Flicker-free lighting will relieve the feeling of fatigue, it creates a more comfortable environment and helps us to be more concentrated on work.
