Bridgelux launches human-centric lighting options

Bridgelux Inc of Fremont, CA, USA (a vertically integrated manufacturer of solid-state light sources for lighting applications) has announced the commercial availability of Thrive surface-mount device (SMD) 2835 and V Series chip-on-board (COB) LEDs. Thrive white-point options are designed to closely match the spectra of natural light by reducing blue spikes and cyan valleys, and providing full-spectrum, human-centric LED lighting solutions.

The loss of natural light benefits affects those who spend most of their time indoors, with office workers being one of the groups especially at risk. According to Harvard Business Review, the “health benefits of access to natural light are causing some firms to re-imagine their workspace and tout this as a recruiting tool.” The lighting industry is moving beyond the efficacy race and towards human-centric lighting incorporating circadian elements that may impact well-being for anyone spending extended periods of time indoors, says Bridgelux.

First announced in March, Thrive uses proprietary chip, phosphor and packaging technologies to deliver a close spectral match to natural light. The high-fidelity spectral output of Thrive creates environments with excellent color rendering index (CRI) and outstanding TM-30 metrics, Bridgelux claims. Unlike other high-CRI light sources, Thrive has been engineered specifically to provide a close and continuous match to natural light across the visible wavelength range to enable human-centric lighting.

Thrive SMD 2835 1W 9V and V10C are available for ordering now. Additional SMD 2835 and V Series form factors will be available in late fourth-quarter 2019 and early first-quarter 2020.

“Today’s announcement reflects our pledge to customers to deliver a clear path toward flexible, interoperable solutions to meet lighting requirements that demand natural-looking light, particularly projects in the office, education, healthcare, residential and retail markets,” says Dr Brian Cumpston, VP of Solutions Development. “We are a technology partner committed to delivering new LED light source solutions as our roadmap evolves, including an expansion of Thrive white options onto our Vesta Series and EB Series tunable white light sources, and the expanding family of high-efficacy SMD products,” he adds.

Bridgelux also announced performance upgrades to its SMD 2835 delivering luminous efficacy up to 221lm/W, and to its SMD 4014, now delivering up to 190lm/W, both in 4000K 80 CRI with a variety of 80 and 90 CRI color-point options available. The light sources are useful for a range of lighting applications including office, retail, residential and architectural lighting, assisting users to meet ever evolving regulatory based efficacy requirements.
