In a bid to further reduce the effects of flicker in LED drivers, Australian architectural lighting manufacturer, Unios has launched the G2 Phase-Cut Driver.
Maximising flexibility and power, the re-designed G2 Phase-Cut Driver offers a flicker-free effect, potted enclosure, THD, dimming and reliability. In offering a flicker-free effect, the G2 also provides various health benefits: reducing migraines, discomfort, and illness. Supporting the G2 Phase-Cut Driver, Unios has released their second white paper: Driving the Flicker-Free Effect.
“Flicker” is the primary type of light stimulus that has health implications and is important because it occurs in all light sources,” says Engineering Manager, David Ho. “The white paper is an informative read which will further educate the importance of flicker-free drivers in the lighting industry, exploring the effects of flicker (eye strain, malaise, nausea, panic attacks, anxiety and general discomfort) and proposing best practice solutions,” says Ho. It was from these findings that the engineering team at Unios sought to create an LED driver which could eliminate flicker to the human eye.
Ho says research indicates that 25 – 50% of migraine sufferers identify flicker as a trigger for migraines and that exposure to flicker within offices doubles the average incidence of headaches. “In turn, this driver will promote better health, well-being and improve concentration for occupants,” says Ho.
