Share

Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd. (KOSDAQ 046890), a leading global innovator of LED technology, announced that it has achieved smart lighting design with SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs in cooperation with Casambi Technologies Oy (“Casambi”), a leading developer of wireless lighting control systems based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), and it has been adopted for the Italian designed architectural lighting brand formalighting Ltd. (“formalighting”), a global manufacturer of Italian designed architectural lighting systems and solutions for a new product line which offers motorized luminaire with smart wireless controls.

The SunLike COB LED packages have been adopted by formalighting for the new fixtures, Moto-Zero 40 Compasso and Moto-Zero 66 Zoom, in track mounted motorized spotlight range. In this sector, the Moto-Zero 40 Compasso is known as the world’s smallest motorized fixture with the Moto-Zero 66 Zoom being focused on the best selection of LED lighting for museum, art galleries and commercial spaces. The integrated technology within the motorized luminaires offers more smart control over the beam angle and movements of the fixture, which is able to be tilted vertically 90° in two directions as well as rotated horizontally 360°. The intensity and white color tuning of the light is controlled by CASAMBI™ bluetooth technology.

The embedded SunLike Series LEDs are the world’s first LEDs to produce light that closely matches the spectrum of natural sunlight, optimized to natural light spectra and color rendering of CRI-97 – close to CRI-100 of sunlight, and higher than the CRI- 80 of conventional LEDs. The spotlight fixtures are designed to bring out the most natural color tones of objects which are particularly color-sensitive. They also deliver considerable benefits that include vivid color, detailed contrast, and homogeneous quality of light. This is achieved through restricting the blue light peak, similar to the sunlight spectral curve, which enables the reduction of scattered reflection and glare.

SunLike Series LEDs also deliver human-centric lighting, identified as a key light source for promoting human well-being, based on the results of a recent comprehensive sleep study conducted by Prof. Christian Cajochen and his team at the University of Basel in Switzerland. The paper, entitled: “Effect of Daylight LED on Visual Comfort, Melatonin, Mood, Waking Performance, and Sleep,” was published in the Journal of Lighting and Research Technology on March 24, 2019. The paper quotes: “We have evidence that a daylight [natural spectrum] LED solution has beneficial effects on visual comfort, daytime alertness, mood, and sleep intensity in healthy volunteers.”

“The nature of light is critical to the success of the display for museum, art galleries and retail stores by providing a high color rendering, and to promotion of well-being by creating a more healthy and productive working environment in indoor spaces. SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs will enable lighting designers to meet the most challenging design requirements, and to deliver differentiated customer experience,” said Carlo Romiti, Europe sales Vice President of Seoul Semiconductor. “We are pleased to introducing the smart lighting with SunLike Series LEDs in cooperation with Casambi and formalighting in European market. We believe that the combination of the healthy light source LED and new technology with smart wireless control will provide consumers with both of significant vivid color benefits and well-being.”

Seoul Semiconductor developed SunLike Series natural spectrum LEDs in collaboration with Toshiba Materials’ TRI-R spectrum technology in 2017 as the first LED light source to closely match the spectrum of natural sunlight.
