Dialight Announces New Intertek-Certified Photometric & Electrical Lab at NJ HQ

Dialight, the innovative global leader in LED lighting technology, today announced the opening of its new on-site Intertek Lab at the company’s North American headquarters in Farmingdale, N.J. The Dialight Photometric & Electrical Lab is one of only a few Level IV facilities in the industry, qualified through the Intertek SATELLITE™ Data Acceptance Program to independently conduct IES-LM-79-08 Approved Method: Electrical and Photometric Measurements of Solid-State Lighting Products and In-situ Temperature Measurement Tests (ISTMT).

With this Intertek Satellite Lab located in their headquarters, Dialight can now generate the required IES files needed to certify the performance of its industry-leading commercial and industrial LED lighting solutions.

“We’ve invested heavily in the state-of-the-art equipment and facility required to do our own in-house testing, speed time to market, and optimize our product development and R&D timeline to strengthen our first-to-market competitive edge,” said Roy Burton, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive. “Our lab has undergone extensive auditing through Intertek to achieve Level IV status and we’re already putting it to work in developing the next-generation of LED products to meet our customers’ quickly evolving needs.”

Intertek, a (LSE: ITRK) a leading international provider of testing, inspection and certification services, operates the SATELLITE program that integrates speed, flexibility and cost effectiveness into the product development process, enabling Dialight to test at a lower cost and with more control over the testing queue and priority. Its recognition as a Level IV SATELLITE facility is indicative of Dialight’s quality assurance and precision design focus that enabled it to meet the stringent standards of the SATELLITE program.

The ultra-modern lab includes a new LSI High-Speed Moving Mirror Goniophotometer Series 6240T, as well as a latest-generation Instrument Systems CAS140B Spectrometer with integrating sphere. The new equipment enables Dialight certified lab technicians to independently measure and validate LM-79 and ISTMT data, including total lumen output, lumen efficacy over time, color rendering (CRI) and color correlation temperature (CCT) and junction level. The entire lab must undergo periodic Intertek audits to maintain its Level IV status with maximum 4% tolerance.
