LG Innotek Unveils "Eye Pleasing" LED

LG Innotek today announced that it released an "eye-pleasing (EP)" LED, a functional LED package for the first time in the world. "EP LED" is a lighting LED of a new concept inspired by previous research on the interaction between light and eye. The company applied its proprietary technology for designing ultra-precision LED chips to control the wavelength of light.

In fact, "EP LED" controls the wavelength of "blue light", which corresponds to 380-500 nm of the visible light. It generates by up to 60%~70% less of the wavelength from 415 to 455 nanometers than the sunlight or the former LEDs, which is known to generate reactive oxygen in the retina and give stress to the eyes.

The "EP LED" can also be used to create a light that can improve cognitive ability and concentration compared with conventional white LED products. This is possible because EP LED emits the wavelength between 465 and 495 nm of which wavelength is known to activate the physiological function of a human body up to 20% more than the natural sunlight does.

EP LED product can be also used with color temperature tuning solution in office, retail, or hospital environment. It can activate the bio-rhythm with the high color temperature close to the natural sunlight. In addition, it can improve the sense of stability of people and patients in the lounge or the hospital patient rooms with the low color temperature.

The "EP LED" also fully capitalizes on the advantages of LED lighting. Compared to the conventional method of attaching a filter to the lighting to reduce harmful wavelength, the “EP LED” minimizes the loss of optical efficiency and color.

LG Innotek secured the quality and stability of the products by installing the "EP LED" lighting in its new plant in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi-do.

In the second half of this year, the company plans to launch the products and expand sales in North America and Europe following the Japanese and Chinese markets.

June O Song, Vice President of LG Innotek’s LED Business Unit emphasized, "EP LED, which best represents the functionality of LED lighting, is not only beneficial to eye health, but also conducive to effective learning and improved work concentration." He also addressed, "LG Innotek will continue to develop a new LED lighting market segment with its proprietary and state-of-the-art technologies."
