The impending ban on fluorescent lamps has formally shaken up the standardized lighting industry. The new RoHS Directive, which restricts the use of hazardous and harmful substances in electrical and electronic equipment, was adopted by the EU Commission in February 2022. It stipulates that no lamps containing mercury may be placed on the market after August 24, 2023. For D65 and D50 standardized light luminaires, as well as ISO 3668 and ISO 3664 standard light luminaires for color matching, there is an exemption until 2025, but the switch to mercury-free alternatives is already recommend. Owner of standardized color matching systems face the challenge of finding an alternative LED-based solution for fluorescent lamps containing mercury.
The Digital Light Systems (DLS) from JUST Normlicht have long been convincing color and print matcher worldwide. More and more products of the product range are offered in series LED-based. For existing JUST stations there is the possibility to upgrade installed fluorescent lamps with the DLS Upgrade Systems.
In addition, we now enable third-party color proofing stations to be equipped with the patented Digital Light Systems.

The DLS Retrofit Systems are specifically designed as an alternative for third-party stations with mercury-containing fluorescent lamps. The system should make it easier for users to switch to LED-based standardized lighting systems. The old luminaires are replaced with modern LED-based DLS luminaires which are specifically designed for your station and engineered to fulfill your requirements.

The DLS Retrofit Systems generate with the installed Digital Light Systems a light spectrum that produce the highest quality light, which remains constant over years. The spectral distribution simulates standard light D50 and D65 so well that the specifications for visual color assessment according to ISO 3664 and ISO 3668 are not only met, but are significantly exceeded.
DLS Retrofit Systems
The DLS luminaires are more sustainable than fluorescent lamps due to the long-life LED technology. Due to the DLS retrofit systems, resources are conserved, and investment costs kept low, which a complete replacement investment in an LED-based station could entail. There is no need for regular tube replacement, which is essential with fluorescent lamps after 2,500 hours of operation. It eliminates ongoing investment in replacement lamp sets and the time lost to tube changes and warm-up periods. Fluorescent lamps contain toxic mercury, which is why they are expensive to dispose of as hazardous waste.
With the modernization of your existing station, your company will benefit from all the technical, environmental, and economic advantages from day one, and will completely pay off itself within 5 years!
DLS Retrofit Systems are more environmentally friendly than a completely new investment.
