Description

This is a nifty product from BenQ that takes up essentially no space, is USB powered, and provides ergonomic, eye safe light to your area, with automatic adjustment to recommended levels if you desire. The new desktop control makes it much easier to make adjustments when you need to.

This new Pus model has a very high colour rendering index (~ Ra 95!) so is a good quality light for print assessment as well. Whilst designed to be mounted on screen (any monitor with a bezel width of ~1-3cm, although we have one mounted on a 5cm deep Eizo bezel here so it can go wider if you have an older monitor), it can also be mounted above e.g. pinboard for a very inexpensive, high quality print viewing setup.

    Working a full day in front of a screen is irritating.

    Research shows that we work on the computer for an average of 5.7 hours each day. Staring at the screen for so long causes eye irritation. To eliminate this discomfort, enough rest helps, but the key to relieve eye strain is sufficient lighting.

    Eye Care: Brightness is Key

    The American National Standard Practice for Office Lighting recommends illuminance level at 500 lux. We looked at traditional lamps and decided to change a few things: incorrect brightness, limited space, and screen reflection.

    Auto Dimming

    The built-in ambient light sensor automatically illuminates to 500 lux. ScreenBar Plus e-Reading lamp is equipped with a sensor that promptly detects the surrounding brightness and then supplements it with just the right light.

    * Under normal circumstances, auto dimming mode will illuminate to 500 lux. While in a dimly lit room (under 50lux), the lamp automatically adjusts illumination to 300lux, thereby eliminating the discomfort caused by a strong contrasts of light.

    Space Saving

    The patented clip design instantly attaches to any monitor. With BenQ’s unique design, we eliminate the need for mounting hardware like tape or screws.

    Glare Free

    No reflection, only precision lighting. The asymmetrical optical design ensures zero reflective glare off the screen. ScreenBar Plus e-Reading lamp has an asymmetrical optical design that only illuminates the desk and doesn’t shine on the screen, avoiding reflective glare.

    The Whole Working Area is Crystal Clear

    The 500 lux illuminance of the desk surface ensures that you see everything in front of the screen clearly. Illuminates 74 by 35cm.

    Quality LED light source ensures proper eye care.

    • Non-flicker - Compliant with IEEE PAR1789 regulation of flicker in LED lighting
    • No blue-light hazard - IEC/TR 62778 assessment deemed it free of blue-light hazard

    Adjustable color temperature, to increase efficiency and comfort

    • All eight colors are compliant with the ANSI white color standard. From 2700K to 6500K
    • For comfort, the warm light lets you relax and replenishes your energy.
    • While working, the cool light allows you to concentrate and boosts efficiency.

    USB Powered: No Extra Wires, Just USB

    Whether it is a computer, phone charger or power bank, any USB outlet can power the ScreenBar and light up your desk. Once turn it on, the ScreenBar Plus resumes your last used brightness and color temperature settings to energetically welcome you back to work! Once turn it on, the ScreenBar resumes your last used brightness and color temperature settings to energetically welcome you back to work!

    * If a phone charger or power bank are used, make sure the power output is 5V and supplies at least 1A.
    * Use only the provided USB cable to power the lamp. Use of any extension USB cable can result in malfunctions.

    Desktop Dial makes e-Reading Computer Screenbar Plus Easier

    The desktop dial of e-Reading Computer Screenbar Plus, which takes almost no space of your desk, makes the lamp more user friendly. The control panel is angled towards the user, enhancing the visibility and usability. The dial makes the adjustment of brightness and color temperature intuitive and precise.

    Simple Usage for Higher Convenience

    The touch control design allows you to easily turn on the light and adjust the brightness or color temperature. With a light touch, the Auto Dimmer Mode is activated.

    Simplified design for premium quality

    After losing the unnecessary parts, we kept only a clean shape and the essentials. That means no painted or printed layers, only the durable aluminium alloy and high-quality engineering polymer.

    Material safety

    The materials we used all complied with the RoHS (2002/95/EC) standards of the EU, securing they do not contain any unsafe heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury.
