Are there any known health hazards using red phosphors in the bulbs?
I am outfitting my home with waveform-led bulbs. I was wondering if your bulbs give off UV rays to the occupants. Are there any known health hazards with using red phosphors in the bulbs? I am buying PN 4011.40, PN 4002.30 PN 4011.30 I am hoping that all your lights have reduced blue spectrum and are safer than the typical LEDs at hardware stores. I know that your lights carry the CE rating but are not UL listing.
Our bulbs do not emit any UV rays, and all emitted electromagnetic waves are longer than 430 nanometers.
There are no known health hazards with red phosphor wavelengths as their peak wavelengths are at 630 nanometers or longer.
These photometric properties apply to all of the PN 4011 and 4002 product lines. For reduced blue light output, we would generally recommend high CRI and low color temperature lamps as they will generally offer the best mix of wavelengths to reduce blue light exposure.
