Sunlike LED technology

March 20, 2018

The human biorhythm has followed sunlight for tens of thousands of years. Lanterns did not appear until the 3rd century BC. The use of white LEDs for lighting began less than 20 years ago. They are efficient, but their light differs significantly from natural sunlight. SunLike LED technology produces light that nearly matches the spectrum of natural sunlight. This creates much more beautiful and natural lighting conditions. Brumberg LED inserts with SunLike technology are available as MR16 or as QR111.

The light of the SunLike LEDs represents a revolution in the creation of a natural light spectrum. The sun-like light minimizes the deficits of an artificial light source and offers all the advantages of natural light. Therein lies great potential: SunLike puts people at the center of lighting technology. The goal is to contribute to a healthier life with the more natural lighting conditions.


Side effects of blue light minimized

Commercial LEDs mostly use LED chips with high blue content in the light spectrum. Recent studies by Harvard University and other well-known universities show that this blue component positively stimulates the human eye to produce visible light. When this activating blue light is used during the day, it has a positive effect on attention and mood. However, if the LEDs generate this "peak" in the blue spectrum at night, this can have a negative effect on a person's biorhythm if used for long periods of time. That is why SunLike takes a different approach: In the SunLike LEDs, a violet LED is used together with a TRI-R phosphor compound. This makes it possible to avoid the typical "peaks" in blue light. This makes it possible to produce a more natural light that is similar to the solar spectrum and therefore healthier.


First-class color rendering thanks to SunLike

Many research institutions have found that human biorhythms respond best to natural sunlight. This is due to the human retinal cells, which evaluate light information on a color-related basis using red, blue and green cones, although the proportion of blue receptors is only 5.7 percent. Since our eyes can only accept this limited portion of blue light, it is scattered beyond this limit. However, this scattered light causes the structure and color of objects to appear distorted. In addition, too much blue light can overstress retinal cells and reduce the ability to concentrate. Because the light spectrum of SunLike LEDs is nearly identical to sunlight, color and texture appear as they do in natural light, with no negative effects on eyes or biorhythms.


Possible applications of SunLike LEDs

SunLike LEDs are used wherever the most accurate color rendering is required. Examples include department stores and stores, exhibition spaces such as museums and exhibition halls, but SunLike also creates pleasant, natural lighting conditions in cosmetic environments, bathrooms and changing rooms.
