LED lighting for laboratories
Having proper lighting is a very important factor for laboratories, as they are equipped premises that provide controlled conditions in which to perform measurements, research and scientific experiments.
The term laboratory comes from the Latin word laboratorium. The etymology of the word also indicates that in these particular places many hours are spent dedicated to the work and study of certain phenomena.
Precisecisely for this reason, among the most important features that we take into account when dealing with led lighting design for laboratories, we always remember to avoid the use of lights that could generate the so-called effect ‘Flicker’.
With this term we refer to the instability of light produced by lamps, also known to many as flickering.
Normally, old incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lamps are switched on and off about a hundred times in a second, thus producing a flicker at a frequency of about 100 hertz; Usually the human eye does not consciously perceive flicker patterns that have a frequency of over 100 hertz, although some research indicates that these may affect brain neurons.
Often in fact it can happen to spend a few hours in places where this type of effect is more pronounced, and generally when you leave rooms like these you feel immediately tired and disoriented even if you were not doing any particular activity.
It is just one of the many examples in which the flashing of lighting can cause disturbances and exhaustion.
