Pathway Lighting Products Moves Towards Human Centric Lighting

OLD SAYBROOK, Conn., January 21, 2021 — Pathway Lighting has chosen to utilize the Bridgelux ThriveTM series of tailored daylight spectrum LED chips in its products. The Thrive spectrum is more natural, and objects viewed in this light appear as they would in natural daylight with a CRI exceeding 97. This spectrum also has extremely high TM-30 metrics. In addition to the quality of the light, this spectrum has been shown to have positive health benefits and a general enhancement of worker productivity and attitude.

A comparison of the Thrive LED spectrum, a 4000K natural light spectrum, and spectra from typical 80 CRI, 90 CRI, and 98 CRI LEDs can be seen in Figure 1. The typical LED spectra have an exaggerated spectral peak in the blue range while the Thrive spectrum closely matches the natural light spectrum.

Thrive can be found in Pathway Lighting’s Caliber Plus Architectural product line, which include recessed, cylinders, pendants, and high/low bays.  See video
