The Issue – Many commercial lighitng products in the lower price / performance range, including many new LED fixtures, produce poor quality light. Their Color Rendering Index’s (CRI – one measure of performance) are often well below 90. Viewed simultaneously with other light sources of higher quality, they appear visually “harsh”, and often have Illumination inconsistency, flicker and other artifacts.
Such poor quality lighting negatively impacts productivity when employees move back and forth between color critical viewing lights and whatever surrounding lighting exists. For example, a designer moving between a viewing station and a planogram area; a press operator moving between the press console and the printing machinery; etc. Their eyes must continuously readjust between the two lighting conditions. Eye strain is considerable and color judgement is compromised.
The Solution – Providing quality light at the proper level in areas adjacent to color critical vieiwing areas (e.g. to ISO standards) minimizes adaptation and the the resultant eye strain and compromises in color judgement. JUST Normlicht, in conjunction with leading LED manufacturers, has developed high color accuracy LED ambient lighting that approximates conditions in color critical areas while dramatically improving energy efficiency and lighting consistency while reducing operating and maintenance costs
