Samsung Electronics unveiled its first "human-centric" LED packages, collectively known as LM302N. Engineered with carefully created light spectra, the LM302N family helps human bodies adjust melatonin levels indoors, making people feel more energetic or relaxed depending on their daily life patterns.
“The benefits of using Samsung's LM302N reach beyond the basic lighting function of visual recognition, by improving the non-visual biological effects of lighting on people,” said Un Soo Kim, senior vice president of LED Business Team at Samsung Electronics. “Our LED solutions are ushering in a whole new human-oriented approach of using artificial lighting to enhance productivity and relaxation, benefitting modern-day indoor lifestyles.”
Samsung's LM302N utilizes precisely designed light spectra with optimized amounts of cyan to accommodate lighting needs to the extent desired at any given point in time: the LM302N DAY improves alertness and the LM302N NITE enhances relaxation. Standardized at 3.0x3.0mm, these offerings can fit in a wide range of lighting fixtures and are protected against humidity and heat.
According to Samsung, the LM302N DAY can suppress the body’s melatonin level more than 18% below that of conventional LED lighting. The package is available in a variety of color temperatures from 3000K to 6500K for a diverse range of indoor applications to enhance an individual’s sense of awakeness and energy level.
The LM302N NITE can provide a proper level of brightness without hindering the release of melatonin, helping people to maintain the hormone level as if they were in a calm natural atmosphere at night. The body releases about 5% more melatonin under lights with the LM302N NITE packages than conventional LED packages, increasing relaxation. The LM302N NITE is offered in color temperatures between 1800K and 4000K, providing design flexibility to bring the benefits of relaxing light to a variety of lighting spaces.
The newly launched LM302N family is now in mass production.
