Standardization of Performance Criteria for LED Luminaires

This guiding paper is intended to help bring clarity by introducing a universal set of quality criteria that are recently described in two IEC/PAS documents. As a user of LED luminaires it is important to apply the same set of standardised and therefore comparable quality criteria when evaluating manufacturer’s claims. Users of LED luminaires should always ask for LED luminaire specifications measured in compliance with the new IEC/PAS documents. Read more »
