Balanced spectrum lighting is what sets Promolux apart from the competition. But what exactly is spectrum lighting? How exactly does balanced spectrum lighting make Promolux’s lighting equipment great? Light is electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye. Light is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we consider to be “visual light”.

What is the electromagnetic spectrum?

The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of all frequencies and wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation. This can be very low energy frequency such as radio waves; or radiation with very high-energy frequencies such as gamma rays, which are emitted during nuclear explosions. Sunlight is an example of full-spectrum light. Sunlight includes the range of wavelengths necessary to sustain life on Earth: infrared, visible and ultraviolet. The human eye can only detect the visible aspect.

Visible lighting

Lying between infrared and ultraviolet radiation is the visible light component. Visible light consists of the spectrum of seven color bands. This spectrum is produced when visible light goes through a prism. These seven color bands are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet: the colors of a rainbow. Promolux uses this technology to achieve a true color display for all of the buyer’s commercial lighting needs.

What is “true color” and how does spectrum lighting benefit Promolux?

True color is the specification of the color of a pixel in a color display using a 24-bit value. This 24-bit color display allows the possibility of up to 16,777,216 possible colors. The amount of bits that a pixel’s color shade uses is defined as its bit-depth. True color is often called 24-bit color. Promolux achieves a true color display through a balanced light spectrum. Promolux lamps have more of a balanced visible spectrum than other fluorescent lamps, which gives Promolux lighting an edge over other companies. Promolux’s advantage is that any food display case that is lit with Promolux products will be elevated to its highest visual potential. Promolux also limits the amount of ultraviolet radiation that impacts your lit goods, meaning that your stock will not experience harmful deterioration as quickly as it would with full spectrum lighting.

Light is a key component to everyday essentials. The balance of light spectrum can help or hurt grocery stock. Promolux’s ability to create well-balanced spectrum lighting is what sets it apart from the competition.
