20190701

Agencies, New Delhi Orient Electric on Monday launches LED lights with flicker control technology which reduces the harmful invisible flicker present in LED light that causes various health complications. Flicker is the rapid change in brightness of LED light, and it is of two types, visible and invisible. Visible flicker can be detected by eyes, and the frequency generally is below 100 hertz and hence is easier to avoid or control. The invisible flicker is the one that we all should be concerned about. This flicker is a rapid fluctuation with frequency above 100 hertz that human eye cannot detect. Orient Electric Ltd MD & CEO Rakesh Khanna at a press briefing here said, “ EyeLuv series of LED bulbs, battens and other popular LED luminaires will directly benefit the society at large and take care of the problem of invisible flicker in normal LED lights which seriously impacts human health.” Mr Khanna on pricing said hike of 30 to 40 per cent is bearable when it comes to our health. "We conducted researches in NABL accredited lab to understand the implications of invisible flicker from LED lights. The research findings clearly indicated that LED flicker has many adverse health implications and as a responsible brand, we wanted to address the issue," Executive Vice President Puneet Dhawan told the gathering. Studies have revealed that prolonged exposure to flicker emitted by LED lights with flicker percentage above 30 per cent can lead to negative health impact such as eye strain, headaches, blurred vision, fatigue, apparent slowing or stopping of motion, reduced visual task performance and in some cases, neurological problems. One can easily experience this invisible LED flicker with the help of a smartphone by simply seeing the normal LED Lights in slow motion video mode of the smartphone camera. This flicker in the light is seen sometimes in form of striations and sometimes just as a strong flicker.
