Biodynamic control

Light gives our life rhythm

Delmatic’s latest biodynamic lighting controls subtly adjust light intensity and colour to replicate the dynamic variation of daylight.

As the earth rotates around the sun, light levels and colour change from cool blue daylight to a warmer light as dusk falls. These changes in the quality and quantity of light stimulate circadian rhythms and regulate hormones linked to alertness and relaxation.

Delmatic Biodynamic controls can be configured to mimic the rhythms of natural light (resulting in an improvement in performance and the well-being of individuals) or can be assigned to defined zones such as working areas, relaxation areas, meeting rooms etc, so that lighting intensity and colour relates to the activities within an area.

A dynamic component to our day

Biodynamic routines can be configured to mimic the rhythms of natural light, offering a people-centred solution which counteracts the body’s tendency to be less alert at certain times of day, resulting in an improvement in performance and the well-being of individuals.

Lighting that empathises with the task

Biodynamic scenes and routines can be assigned to defined zones of a building such as meeting rooms, working areas, relaxation areas etc, so that lighting intensity and colour relates to the activities within an area.

Regulate light and temperature

Research shows that adjusting temperature as well as lighting during the circadian cycle can achieve further benefits.  Delmatic connected systems share algorithms with the BMS so climate can be adjusted as an integral part of biodynamic lighting routines.

White tuning and DALI device type 8

Delmatic systems can achieve Biodynamic and White-tuning (tuneable white) control in a variety of ways including cross-fade DALI drivers as well as DALI device type 8 single tuneable white drivers.

Most people agree that sunlight brightens their home, their workplace and their life, and yet, for a long time, it was thought that light was needed purely for seeing. Only recently have we discovered that the quality of light regulates our body clocks and rhythms.

The rising and the setting of the sun punctuates our lives and provides a dynamic component to our day.

These natural changes in the quality and quantity of light stimulate circadian rhythms and regulate hormones linked to alertness (cortisol) and relaxation (melatonin). Cool white light with a blue tinge activates our senses and has a positive influence on concentration while comforting warm white encourages relaxation and assists regeneration. The same biological effects can be recreated in interior environments using biodynamic lighting controls.

Delmatic’s biodynamic controls subtly adjust light intensity and colour to replicate the dynamic variation of daylight and transitioning from blue morning skies through to the glow of sunset.

Delmatic systems offer a variety of Biodynamic and White-tuning (tuneable white) solutions including cross-fade DALI driver control as well as DALI device type 8 single tuneable white drivers.

Lighting controls can enhance energy efficiency by 40% .. 50% .. 60%, yet, if you can enhance the productivity of people by just one percent, think how much that would be worth.
