Lumileds’ New EU Ecodesign Information Tool Makes it Easier for Light Source Manufacturers to Comply to New Regulations

Lumileds has introduced a first-of-its-kind web-based tool – the EU Ecodesign Tool – that provides detailed LED performance data lighting manufacturers need in order to comply with the European Union’s Ecodesign Directive. LUXEON LED users can view the data and a normalized spectrum on screen or choose to download a .csv file containing the same data seen on-screen.

Lumileds’ new EU Ecodesign Tool supports lighting manufacturers that must comply with two new regulations taking effect September 1, 2021. Regulation 2019/2020 (on Ecodesign) establishes a set of performance requirements for light sources and Regulation 2019/2015 (on Energy Labeling) specifies information that must be provided to consumers. Compliance with both regulations is required as of September 1, 2021.

“Suppliers of light sources for the EU market must comply with Ecodesign and Energy Labeling regulations that include the declaration of various parameters that relate directly to the properties of the LED packages used in the light source,” said Dr. Wouter Soer, Director, Illumination Product Development. “Suppliers need this LED package information in order to determine the declared values for their light source. Though most of the relevant LED package information can be found in the respective product datasheets, Lumileds new Ecodesign tool provides additional information to give a full description of LED package properties relevant to the regulations.”

Users can quickly search on a partial or full part number. Each on-screen report details 16 key parameters and presents a graph of the normalized spectrum for the part. The accompanying .csv file contains the same 16 parameters as well as the raw data of the normalized spectrum.

Lumileds new EU Ecodesign Tool is live on the company’s website and can be accessed by anyone at any time.
