Revolutionary Disc lights up show

02 November 2012

Humanscale presented its latest LED task lighting solutions at Orgatec 2012 including Element Disc, with Thin Film LED Technology and smart dimming functionality. This offers seven levels of brightness to meet a vast range of ergonomic needs and uses memory to save the last preferred light setting selected by the user.

Task lighting is a solution that is gaining increasingly more attention, and with good reason. People need different lighting levels depending on their age and vision strength. Moreover, since paper reflects light, reading paper-based documents requires up to five times more light than does viewing a monitor, which generates light. This presents an obvious conflict for most people, who must constantly review both paper-based and digital material. An answer to this quandary may be dual-source lighting, which uses low levels of overhead lighting in combination with task lights at each workstation—a solution which provides benefits ergonomically (by offering controllable lighting for people with varying vision levels), economically (by allowing people to use—and pay for—only the exact amount of lighting that they need) and environmentally (by reducing the energy wasted by excess overhead lighting).

As one of the first companies to recognize and address the need for LED task lighting, Humanscale offers an array of solutions, each with innovative features that hold the potential to change the way people work. Humanscale’s second manifestation of Thin Film LED Technology (the first was Horizon) is the easily adjustable Element Disc, which embodies the great strides that have been made in recent years with LEDs. For exceptional sustainability and ease of use, Element Disc is equipped with a passive infrared (PIR) occupancy sensor, which automatically turns the light off or on when the user leaves or enters the area.
