Technology of the Month - Tunable White Fixtures


Tunable White Fixtures



White tuning allows for changing the color of light from warm to neutral to cool in appearance, which may be desirable for a range of reasons, from aesthetic to medical. Such tuning of white light can be used to:

·         Provide apparent cooling or warming to a room . This can create psychological effects – for example, by using cooler-colored light to make occupants feel cooler on a sweltering summer day, or the reverse.

·         Match room finishes , especially when they change on a seasonal basis, or when a space undergoes an interior-design remodeling or a branding/theme change.

·         Suit the preferences of a new tenant , owner, or user.

·         Simulate daylight or candlelight to set a mood , or match gallery lighting to the works of art on display. Match the color of daylight in a windowed lobby by, for example, tuning the light to be warmer during early morning and late afternoon and cooler at mid-day.

·         Assist with behavior control . Some classroom studies suggest that the color and intensity of light can be modified to calm or invigorate students, or to focus their attention.

·         Support the human circadian system . Light plays a key role in setting and regulating the body’s biological clock. Both the intensity and the spectral content of light can be used to stimulate or suppress the secretion of melatonin and other hormones that in turn affect our mood, alertness, and health. Although the exact mechanisms and effects are not yet fully understood, this may be an important consideration for industrial and medical spaces as well as senior- living facilities, prisons, dormitories, and high-density housing.

·         Correct circadian misalignment . Varying the light color and intensity may be used by medical professionals to treat jet lag, sleep disorders, and other conditions.
