Human Centric Lighting For Better Quality of Life

Light is very good for us . We all experience this every year as Spring comes . As the days become brighter we feel more active , better mood with better concentration than in dark months of winter  .Vision is not only reason people need light .Lights also regulates human “body clock” – a complicated control system which coordinates & organises function of the body to a 24 hours rhythm.

Human centric lighting solutions are lighting systems that are designed to promote the health, well-being, and productivity of people. These lighting solutions take into account the biological and psychological effects of light on humans and aim to mimic the natural light patterns that humans experience throughout the day.

HCL solutions often use LED lights that can be adjusted to mimic the color temperature and intensity of natural light. The color temperature of a light source refers to its warmth or coolness, with warmer temperatures (yellow and red hues) simulating sunrise and sunset, and cooler temperatures (blue and white hues) simulating midday sun.HCL solutions also take into account the time of day and the circadian rhythm of individuals. Bright, cool light in the morning can help people feel more alert and energized, while warmer, softer light in the evening can help promote relaxation and better sleep.In addition to supporting the body’s natural rhythms, HCL solutions can also be customized to support various activities, such as reading, working, and relaxing. For example, lighting can be brighter and cooler in a workspace to promote alertness, while lighting in a relaxation area can be warmer and softer to promote calm.

Overall, HCL solutions can have a positive impact on individuals’ physical and emotional well-being, as well as their performance and productivity. They can be used in a variety of settings, including homes, schools, offices, healthcare facilities, and public spaces.

DALI occupancy detector with HCL function for biodynamic light

DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) occupancy detectors with HCL (Human Centric Lighting) function for biodynamic light are lighting control systems that combine the ability to detect occupancy in a space with the capability to adjust lighting to mimic the natural daylight cycle, creating an environment that is both energy-efficient and supportive of human health and productivity.

DALI occupancy detectors can be installed in rooms and spaces to detect when people are present and adjust lighting levels accordingly. When combined with HCL functionality, these detectors can also adjust the color temperature of the lighting to simulate the changing color of natural light throughout the day.

By combining DALI occupancy detectors with HCL functionality, building managers and owners can create spaces that are not only energy-efficient but also promote human health and productivity. This can be especially valuable in workplaces, healthcare facilities, and other settings where people spend extended periods of time.

In HCL systems, the color temperature of the lighting is adjusted to support the body’s natural circadian rhythms. Bright, cool light in the morning can help people feel more alert and energized, while warmer, softer light in the evening can help promote relaxation and better sleep. The HCL functionality in DALI occupancy detectors can simulate this natural light pattern, promoting greater well-being and productivity in the people in the space.
