Spectrum Design

Design impactful and quality lighting products
KUMUX supports lighting manufacturers and designers in the product design process to simplify the innovation in light quality for a better impact on a specific project application.
Whether you are designing lighting with specific colorimetric, photopic, melanopic or electrical parameters, KUMUX can analyse those requirements and generate the optimal blend of LED light.
By using self-developed spectrum design software and a database with thousands of LED chips, KUMUX can simulate the light spectra from millions of possible combinations of multichannel light sources. KUMUX provides the best light source specifications for the luminaire design, following the designer choices of non-visual, human-centric or performance elements.


Specialized Guidance
By leveraging the expertise and knowledge of KUMUX's spectral design experts, you'll receive personalized guidance and specific recommendations for each project. This service ensures precise and efficient results without the need for exhaustive testing on your own.
Cost Optimization
KUMUX's team handles the entire design and simulation process, allowing you to save time and money on manual testing and prototypes. Simultaneously, it reduces the risk of errors and guarantees high-quality results.
Focus on Innovation
KUMUX's spectral design service can save R&D resources, enabling you to allocate them to other product innovation areas such as design, ecological impact, and performance to offer higher value to customers.
KUMUX helped us to determine the ideal control settings for a RGB+W luminaire, in order to achieve specific colours on the panel designed to complement a variety of different daylight conditions. KUMUX Spectral Design service allowed us to easily calculate and interpret the results of various RGB+W channel combinations near the Planckian locus, a process that would have taken longer to calculate using tools built from scratch.

Light has visual characteristics, like color or intensity, that are perceived by our brains through our eyes. However, it has other non-visual characteristics, that are also received by our brain unconsciously, related to the circadian response of our body andour health.
White light is composed by several wavelengths or colors. We can perceive the visual wavelengths when the light goes through the water or a prism to create a rainbow. The light spectrum can be represented using a chart where all the wavelengths (colors) can be displayed according to their intensity.
Two lights with the same color could have different spectra (wavelength mix) and, therefore, different non-visual characteristicsand effects on our body’s circadian response.
If we combine the light of several light sources, their spectra are blended and we could get a light with improved non-visual characteristics and a better impact on our health than the individual LED lights.
