Luminus and NewEnergy Announce Availability of a New Melanopic/Photopic Ratio Optimized Linear Module

Luminus, Inc. and NewEnergy have recently introduced new linear modules built with Salud MP3030 LEDs. Salud LEDs are engineered to achieve specific melanopic/photopic ratios in addition to providing light that is both comfortable and renders true colors. NewEnergy's Salud linears deliver light that keeps people healthy, alert, and productive and are available in 3000 K, 4000 K and 5000 K. These linear modules are ideal for indoor applications including offices, schools, nursing homes, retail locations, hospitals and medical facilities – places where comfortable lighting and smart design promote productivity and wellness every day.

Linear Modules at a Glance:
•    Engineered spectrum with enhanced cyan for melatonin suppression
•    Full spectrum emission – no cyan gap
•    Excellent color rendering – Ra>90
•    Enriched 660 nm emission for natural skin tones and excellent red rendering
•    Configurable with off-the-shelf optics
•    4000 K Salud ideal for luminaires requiring compliance with the
     Cyanosis Observation Index (COI)

The International WELL Building Institute™ (IWBI™) is leading the global movement to transform buildings and communities in ways that help people thrive. These building standards have paved the way for design, creation and implementation of spaces that promote human health and wellness, as well as daily productivity.  The Salud linears are a piece of the puzzle in space design and creation that is both welcoming and healthy.

The high melanopic ratios of these 3000 K, 4000 K and 5000 K linear boards enable lighting designers to meet the equivalent melanopic lux (EML) requirement of the WELL Building standard without having to use unattractive, cool CCTs like 6500 K and without having to over-light the environment.

These modules are available through NewEnergy's distribution channels including Digi-Key and Mouser.
