Luminus Releases Salud™ CCT Tunable Modules

Luminus Releases Salud™ CCT Tunable Modules Luminus Devices expands its human-centric lighting portfolio with the introduction of the Salud CCT tunable modules. The 5000K Salud technology has now been incorporated into Luminus' CCT tunable modules to provide lighting designers with high melanopic lux without using 6500K, thus avoiding light with too much blue tint. The 5000K Salud channel has a melanopic ratio of 0.97 to keep people energized and alert during the day, while the 2200K channel has a melanopic ratio of 0.33 to provide a relaxing environment and allow the body to prepare for sleep. With two independent channels, the user can also tune the light to any CCT in between 5000K and 2200K to enable a smooth transition from daytime to evening. Read more »
