Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is task lighting and why should I use it?
Task lighting provides the correct amount of light for the task being performed. Viewing a computer monitor requires far less light than does reading a typewritten page, making it neither effective nor efficient to light the entire work environment at the same level. When utilizing task lighting, overhead lighting levels can be reduced to a level appropriate for monitor viewing, thus creating a softer, more pleasant atmosphere and saving energy. Work surfaces can then be supplemented with task lighting to give workers total control over where and how much light they need for other tasks, such as reading a document.
2. What Color-Rendering Index (CRI) should task lights have?
CRI is a method for describing the effect of a light source on the color appearance of objects being illuminated. A CRI of 100 represents the reference condition of daylight (and thus the maximum CRI possible). In general, low CRI illumination may render some colors unnatural and lamps with a CRI under 60 should not be used. It has been proven that at a certain point, the higher the CRI, the lower the illuminance. A CRI in the 80s is a good benchmark for all general tasks.
3. What is MCX LED Technology?
MCX LED Technology is the groundbreaking technology utilized by Humanscale's Element light. MCX, which stands for Multi-Chip Extended, refers to Element's unique multi-chip LED, which not only provides a more extensive life than traditional LEDs, but forms an extended bar shape for an exceptionally large footprint of light. MCX Technology is revolutionary in a number of ways, and overcomes many of the weaknesses of traditional LED technology.
