Light individualisation with Tunable White


Tunable White describes the variable colour temperature controls from warm white to cool white light. If the right colour temperature and illuminance are achieved, artificial light can promote human well-being in areas such as offices and educational institutions, as well as hospitals and care homes. As a pioneer in the area of Tunable White technology, Tridonic has consistently developed its opportunities and components since 2013.

Dynamic colour temperatures based on nature’s example

Studying nature illustrates how even the slightest changes in light can influence our moods and how we perceive objects. This notion is at the heart of Tunable White Technology, which is based on the natural colour changes in the light over the course of the day. 

As humans, it is not uncommon for us to spend most of our day in enclosed areas. Seamlessly adjustable colour temperatures – from cool white to warm white – bring natural lighting effects, with all of the associated advantages, from outside to inside, and make it possible to properly target individual needs and situations. As a result, Tunable White supports the concept of Human Centric Lighting (HCL), which puts people at the heart of lighting design. As well as perfect conditions for reading and working, HCL is primarily focused on the circadian rhythm, which controls, among other things, our body clocks. As studies have shown, cool white light with a high proportion of blue light has a stimulating effect and promotes concentration, whereas warm white light is calming. Therefore, Tunable White creates an environment that helps us in a natural way – just like daylight.

To simulate daylight in a manner that is as true to nature as possible, light from cool white and warm white LEDs covering the entire colour palette from 2,700 to 6,500 Kelvin is mixed together. A driver with intelligent technology and a wide dimming range of 3% to 100% are the basis of the Tunable White system. Pre-calibrated kits ensure that colour tolerances are balanced out and the colorimetric locus remains constant across all modules and dimming levels. Suitable control and operating elements from Tridonic, ranging from simple button controls through wireless control and all the way to integration in DALI systems, round off the system perfectly.
