System components

BrainLit’s BioCentric Lighting™ System considers thousands of luminaires, users and sensors, putting significant requirements on system and algorithm capability, optimization, latency and accuracy. All components of BrainLit’s light system meets the highest quality demands in all aspects. 

Software

BCL Recipes

The BCL recipes represents ”the intelligence” in the BCL system, prescribing and specifiying the light each luminaire emits at any point in time. The BCL recipe AutoLit is the default recipe designed to fit most people in their normal daily environment, based on a normal day with sunrise at 7am and sunset at 5.30pm automatically adapting the dynamic light to business and activity. Other BCL recipes such as Boost, Efficient, Relax and Lounge are available in the BrainLit library. Another feature is the possibility to have light scenes configured for special needs, i.e. for presentation mode. 

Seamless integration

Through the light recipes the exposure spectrum, intensity, duration and timing for any user can be tuned according to their individual needs. As opposed to a natural light environment where there is light from the sun and the sky, A BCL system, in a large office building, hospital or manufacturing unit could integrate tens of thousands of luminaires, each individually controlled, synchronized and seamless from the users perspective.

Light profiles

The users expectation on a lighting system is instant changes to user commands such as on/off switch or leaving/entering a room. In contrast a natural light environment is expected to change unnoticeably across the day. Any sudden changes are immediately noticed. The system uses sensors to characterize and track the light users are exposed to and how this impacts related health parameters with the user. The sensor data is used to adjust light exposure to user needs and over time to tune light recipes to short and long term match the user’s target light profile.
In general the variation of the spectral composition in BCL recipes promote the natural circadian rhythm by primarily stimulating the production of the hormones cortisol and melatonin when needed during the day. This improves end user
sleep at night contributing to their alertness during daytime.

Sensors

The motion sensor perceives movement enabling automatic light on and off. It allows the BCL system to handle short term activities in a room, reducing the time when lighting is on and thus energy consumption. When sensors do not perceive motion, the lighting will slowly be dampened to make the users aware that the lighting will soon be turned off. Many types of motion and other sensors can be used with the BrainLit lighting system, with at least one motion sensor installed in each room recommended. Sensors can measure information to allow the system to generate the target light settings, user light exposure data, user health and wellbeing and user activity data.

Luminaires

BrainLit luminaires are designed to provide light for health with all luminaires providing a very wide range of circadian impact. All BrainLit luminaires comply with the toughest flicker standards and embrace the black body curve with exceptional color rendering while dimming smoothly all the way to 0.1 %. These characteristics in combination with high luminance enables BrainLit ́s control system to mimic daylight indoors needed to synchronize our internal clock, promoting sleep at night and making us more alert and awake during daytime. That is how BioCentric Lighting™ improves health, safety and productivity. The full BrainLit luminaire portfolio can be used with any LCS generation. Older LCS generations can be retrofitted with BrainLit’s newly developed and designed luminaires.
