eldoLED DUALdrive in dynamic LED lighting project in elementary school
Date Announced: 23 Dec 2011
An experiential project on dynamic LED lighting in schools using the eldoLED DUALdrive and Emmlight’s Dynamic LED Panel was launched at the Dutch elementary school De Kap in Klazienaveen, The Netherlands. Data about the effects of dynamic LED lighting on the well-being and study performance of pupils will be gathered and documented by the school over the period of one year.
After almost one month of using the LED-lighted classroom, teachers’ reactions are positively glowing: "Absolutely flicker-free and uniform lighting: very pleasant.", "Controlling the light over the controls works like a charm." and "The positive effect of this lighting on the children was clear after as little as one week: even quickly distracted kids are able to concentrate at their task at hand for 30 minutes straight."
One classroom has been fitted with eight 120cm x 30cm troffers called Dynamic LED Panels, designed and manufactured by the Dutch luminaire manufacturer Emmlight, and driven and controlled by eldoLED’s DUALdrive 1060 LED drivers.
DUALdrive is the perfect driver choice for this dynamic LED lighting application for a variety of reasons:
• It easily delivers the smooth flicker-free dimming to very low levels that we’re used to of incandescent lighting.
• Each of the driver’s 4 LED outputs can be independently programmed to match the current required by the connected LEDs with a 1 mA accuracy. So whichever LED types and combinations of LEDs are chosen to achieve the application’s desired tunable white effect, DUALdrive can handle it!
• DUALdrive's high efficiency (90% over a wide load range) and power factor (>0.94) make it the perfect partner for luminaires promoting sustainability and energy-efficiency.
DUALdrive application areas include but are not limited to office lighting, classroom lighting, architectural lighting, signage and advertising lighting, retail display lighting.
