LED illumination range matches natural sunlight

LEDs in the SunLike LEDs from Seoul Semiconductor can be used for touchscreen interface development. They use new technology to deliver a quality of illumination that is exceptionally natural looking and is designed to be virtually indistinguishable from sunlight, says RS Components as it announced the availability of the range.

The SunLike LED range has been developed as a natural-light LED that is optimised for human-centric lighting (HCL). HCL can improve productivity and health (including sleep quality and prevention of eye fatigue and myopia) by providing adjusted light for the stabilisation of human biorhythms. According to RS Components, SunLike removes the high-energy short-wavelength blue LED light source and replaces it with a purple-light LED chip, which is based upon the combination of Seoul Semiconductor’s patented LED chip technology along with TRI-R phosphor technology from Toshiba Materials.

A key element of the SunLike technology is the realisation of true natural colour with a colour reproduction ratio (CRI) that is similar to sunlight. It scores a sunlight spectrum concordance rate of 94 per cent. In addition, the SunLike LEDs offer high clarity and a dimensional sense to objects and text with glare-free illumination, says RS Components, making it particularly suitable for backlighting applications and touchscreen interface development in particular.

Available in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions, RS stocks a range of Seoul Semiconductor SunLike LEDs with warm-, natural- and cool-white colour temperatures including 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K and 5000K specification devices.

RS Components is a multi-channel distributor, offering more than 500,000 industrial and electronics products, sourced from over 2,500 leading suppliers. The distributor provides a range of value-added services to over one million customers and has operations in 32 countries.
