Human Centric Lighting Control

Human Centric Lighting Control

It has been relatively well understood for some time now that light influences our biological responses.

Lighting designers have turned their attention to creating ‘Human Centric’ lighting to promote a healthy and productive environment to both live and work in.

ADM stocks a range of Human Centric lighting control devices from Hytronik and offers technical support to lighting designers creating human centric lighting systems.

Hytronik circadian rhythm sensors for human centric lighting

Our stock range includes daylight harvesting sensors, tunable white LED drivers and control modules.

To make life easy for the lighting designer, Hytronik has developed a simple de-centralised human centric lighting solution with a tuneable white feature.

Why Human Centric Lighting Control?

Light plays a significant role in affecting our circadian rhythms and our wellbeing.

The 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded jointly to Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young. This was in recognition of their discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm.

What this report demonstrates is that circadian rhythms are certainly no myth and light does play a key role in how our body clocks work.

Therefore, it is fair to say that artificial lighting systems can influence how we feel throughout the day and better designed lighting systems can improve our well-being and productivity.

LED lighting has been criticised by some for providing an unhealthy environment.

However, the fact that LED light is far more controllable than traditional lighting methods, means that there is a solution. After all, it was impossible to control the colour temperature of a fluorescent tube, let alone dim it. Office spaces were just flooded with unnatural light, usually switched on when the first person walked into the office and not turned off until the last person left.

The introduction of smart lighting control solutions, such as those from Hytronik, enable lighting designers to create an environment that makes the best use of the available ambient daylight, turning LED lights on and off as required and adjusting the light levels and colour temperature to mimic as closely as possible the natural light we would normally experience. 

Of course, these solutions also have the highly desired side effect of reducing energy costs and any pollution associated with generating the electricity required to power the lights.
