BIOS Lighting and Lumileds Partnership is a Game-Changer for Human Centric Lighting

November 12, 2020

Human Centric Lighting (HCL) innovator BIOS, and global lighting solutions provider Lumileds, have joined forces to create a new SkyBlue LED that doubles previously available chip performance. The new 3030 mid-power LED dramatically reduces the lumen per dollar development barrier facing luminaire manufacturers and eliminates a key barrier to bringing better, healthier lighting solutions to market.

Lumileds scientists engineered the new LUXEON LED to deliver the BIOS proprietary SkyBlue Circadian technology. Human cellular biology has recognized and reacted to natural blue-sky light for tens of thousands of years. BIOS, using science originated at NASA, created its SkyBlue Circadian technology which engages with a non-visual photoreceptor in the eye. During the day, SkyBlue strengthens circadian rhythm, increases alertness, improves focus and boosts moods. In the evening, SkyBlue creates a warmer atmosphere that promotes natural melatonin production leading to a better night’s sleep.

“This engineering and production partnership is what the industry has been waiting for. It will launch the next generation of Human Centric Lighting design.” – Mark McClear, COO BIOS Lighting

Through the relationship with BIOS, Lumileds, an LED innovator and global leader, brings its engineering, phosphor, manufacturing, and solution expertise to the to the human centric lighting ecosystem. “We are able to double lumen output in our 3030 package and enable system performance to increase from 110 to 160 lumens per Watt. This can reduce the bill of materials, put utility rebates into play and ultimately reduce end-user pricing,” said Willem Sillevis-Smitt, Head of Marketing at Lumileds.

Now, the more than 30 BIOS Illuminated™ partners and those that have been waiting for HCL LED technology to cross the chasm can build their portfolios in this critical market with absolute confidence in the LEDs. An expanding market will increase consumer selection, lower end-user costs and ultimately increase productivity, improve physical, mental, and emotional well-being, and improve sleep quality for people around the world.

Larry Chapin, Senior Product Manager at H.E. Williams, Inc., a BIOS Illuminated™ partner responded to the news by saying, “H.E. Williams is proud to deliver innovative lighting products for the built environment. Our partnership with BIOS enables us to address the growing demand for high-performance lighting solutions that support circadian health. The relationship BIOS established with Lumileds will strengthen the supply chain, resulting in reduced lead times and greater flexibility for their OEM partners.”
