ALW + BIOS IS AVAILABLE WITH BOTH STATIC (ALWAYS-ON) AND DYNAMIC (W/ BIO-DIMMING™) – ADDING THE FLEXIBILITY TO ATTENUATE THE SKY BLUE SIGNAL THROUGHOUT THE DAY
ALW + BIOS is available with both static and dynamic light engines, giving you the freedom to specify BIOS in a wide range of applications.
Static light engine solutions are where the ‘sky blue’ light signal remains on while the fixture is powered. This is better suited for applications such as offices and educational spaces, where the space is occupied only during the daylight hours.
Dynamic light engines add the ability to fine-tune and dim-down the sky blue signal, as desired. This solution is most appropriate for spaces that are inhabited during both daytime and nighttime, where you may not want the signal on at all times of the day. With BIOS Dynamic light engines, tuning out the sky blue signal results in a modest (500K) CCT shift, providing both a psychological and biological benefit without a harsh change in CCT.
Bio-Dimming™ is a proprietary module that pairs with BIOS SkyBlue® Dynamic light engines, delivering a completely customizable and spectrally-modulated light source. This module adds the ability to fine-tune the melanopic lux (i.e. the ‘sky blue’ signal), while keeping the photopic lux (the visual signal/brightness) at a constant. The Bio-Dimming controller is compatible with most single-channel drivers and standard dimming protocols (e.g. 0-10V, DMX, ELV, etc.).
