To increase your well-being, we recommend using high-frequency fixtures for your lamps, or high-frequency LED. With a high-frequency fixture there is more than 10,000 Hz: this means that the tube blinks more than 10,000 times per second. The light is therefore very constant and relieves the eye task. This has a calming effect on humans and animals. Using a high-frequency fixture: - Saves 25% energy - Gives the lamp a very long economic life, up to + 30% - Provides a calmer light and therefore relieves the eye task in humans and animals - Does not produce measurable electromagnetic fields What are conventional fixtures? Low-frequency conventional fixtures have a coil, a starter and a capacitor. When switching on, for example, a 36-watt fluorescent tube, the tube receives a current pulse based on 50 Hz (the number of flashes per second). This will cause the lamp to flash a number of times and then light up. The low-frequency ballast ensures that 36 watts are sent to the fluorescent tube. A big disadvantage is that the tube often blinks due to the 50 Hz control, which causes stress levels to rise. That is why many people and animals become restless from low-frequency light. In addition, the coil emits a large magnetic field, which is unhealthy and can cause complaints such as headaches, burning eyes and fatigue. Humans and animals are very sensitive to this and because our eyes are constantly busy absorbing these blinks, complaints arise. In humans this manifests itself through, for example, burning eyes and headaches, in animals through abnormal, sickly behavior and birds can even literally go crazy. Birds experience the 50 Hz flashes, the conventional upstream lighting, the same as we experience a stroboscope. The LED tubes that are offered as an energy-efficient alternative in a conventional fixture then continue to emit low-frequency, flashing light. This is really not recommended for birds and many people also suffer from the flashing of this low-frequency LED light. Do you want to know more about it?

You can test whether a LED lamp or the fixture of your phosphor lamp is high-frequent by viewing the light through your mobile phone's photo mode. Do you see the light blinking? Then the LED lamp or the phosphor fixture is low-frequent.
