The light color of a lamp also determines the impression of the room and is an important criterion when planning biologically effective lighting. The light of each light source has its own color, the so-called light color. It is described by the color temperature, measured in Kelvin (K). The higher the temperature value, the cooler the light color. The light [...]

Lighting required values and tips for soccer stadiums in accordance with UEFA regulations

Lighting required values and tips for soccer stadiums in accordance with UEFA regulations The light temperature should be between 4000K and 6000K. The lighting system inside the stadium must be installed in a way to minimize the intensity of the players’ shadows cast on the field, to get the best result it’s recommended distributing the origin of the luminous flux uniformly on all the field sides, if such installation isn’t possible, the luminous flux will still have to come from at [...]

Colour Reproduction and Color Rendering Index

Colour Reproduction and Color Rendering Index Light and color determine the climate atmosphere of a room. For our well-being, it is important that the colors of the environment and human skin are reproduced as realistically as possible. If one’s skin color appears pale and colorless, it is not because of the cool light color of a lamp, but rather because of its poor color rendering quality. This property of a light source describes how naturally illuminated faces or objects appear in [...]

All You Need to Know About Flickering of LED Light

All You Need to Know About Flickering of LED Light The flickering of light sources as well as pulsation and stroboscopic effects cause visual disturbances and can lead to fatigue and headaches. You must, therefore, be avoided. Fluctuations in brightness are referred to as flicker. The observer perceives them as very disturbing. These fluctuations are perceived by humans as very unpleasant at low frequencies (in extreme cases up to approx. 80 Hz). As an exception, low-frequency flicker can also trigger photosensitive [...]

4 Benefits with Light Management

4 Benefits with Light Management The lighting technology is an essential part of the technical equipment of buildings. With professional planning, it offers great added value for operators and users. Intelligent light management and the use of LEDs enable tailor-made solutions for lighting: needs-based, convenient, and efficient. Only “on” and “off” was yesterday. Light management systems bring the right light to the right place – at the right time and in the right intensity. Whether high illuminance levels for demanding visual tasks, presence dependent controlled lighting in passage areas, or selectable lighting scenes such as “discussion” and “presentation” in meeting rooms. Today, lighting is being adapted more and more to special requirements and personal needs. Light management is also the key to more sustainability in lighting. Because only with electronic control can operators and users take full advantage of modern light sources. Here are some main benefits [...]

How LED Lights Are Affected by Heat

How LED Lights Are Affected by Heat Compared with incandescent lamps and fluorescent lamps, LED has the advantages of high light efficiency, long life, fast response, and environmental protection. LEDs are cool to the touch because they don’t usually generate heat in the form of infrared radiation such as that given off by the sun, heating coils, or incandescent lamps. That makes them perfect choices for places where heat creates problems. But it’s not true that they don’t produce any [...]
