human centric lighting (HCL)

Human Centric Lighting (HCL) is a lighting technology focused on human well-being. Light and lighting have emotional and biological influences on people, their performance and health. This is evidenced not least by the color rendering index already implemented in light-emitting diodes, which ensures a feel-good atmosphere at high index values.

Human Centric Lighting stands for dynamic lighting management, in which lighting is adjusted according to the course of the day and the season. It can be used equally for living rooms, workplaces, operating theaters, hospital rooms, meeting and conference rooms. By changing the influence of light, light radiation and color temperature, the biorhythm of the people living and working in the rooms is influenced in such a way that their performance and regeneration phases are optimized and they feel comfortable.

The technical realization of HCL lighting uses LED luminaires, which can be varied in brightness and color tone. Corresponding LED products are designed for indoor lighting and their white tone, which is expressed in the color rendering index, can be continuously adjusted between warm white, neutral white and cool white.
