This is a revolutionary new lamp. It is the only lamp that has intensity controls and full color tunability and can be used for light therapy and as a task lamp.
This new light therapy/task lamp gives you a light therapy and task lamp all in one. The VariLum® lamp is fully dimmable to 5% and you can adjust the color from 3,000 K to 6,000 K giving you the exact light you want. This lamp is also very energy efficient with LED technology and uses only 30 watts. The light output on this task lamp is comparable to a 200 watt halogen lamp. This lamp is a perfect size for desk or craft bench use.
This lamp with the high output conical lens in place gives you 10,000 lux at 12" and 5,000 lux at 16". Lux is used to measure the light intensity produced by a lighting fixture. The higher the lux reading the more light the lighting fixture is producing over a given area. It is also known as lumens per square meter.
Allowing you to choose the color of the light is a great feature, because anyone using it can adjust it to the color temperature they like. The color temperature is a measure of the color of a light source relative to a black body at a particular temperature expressed in degrees Kelvin (K). Incandescent lights have a low color temperature (approximately 2800K) and have a red-yellowish tone; daylight has a high color temperature (approximately 6000K) and appears bluish (the most popular fluorescent light, Cool White, is rated at 4100K). By allowing you to adjust the color temperature, this lamp can also help regulate circadian rhythms.
This VariLum® lamp from Full Spectrum has the highest optical performance and maintains a 95 CRI at all settings. CRI is a measure of the quality of light. A measurement of the amount of color shift that objects undergo when lighted by a light source as compared with the color of those same objects when seen under a reference light source of comparable color temperature. CRI values generally range from 0 (worst) to 100 (best). CRI is very similar to your contrast knob on your TV set. High CRI equates to sharper, crisper, more natural colored pictures while at the same time reducing glare.
This lamp also includes 2 lenses, one for light therapy and one for every day use, making it one of the most versatile lamps available today. The lenses are magnetic so they attach to the lamp easily.
