Instrument Systems LGS 350: Fast Energy Efficiency Tests

Instrument Systems LGS 350: Fast Energy Efficiency Tests With a view to future energy-efficient lighting solutions in buildings, Instrument Systems has optimized its LGS 350 goniophotometer system for highly accurate and fast testing of medium-sized LED modules according to the EU Eco-Design Directive. The LGS 350 system features an 85 % increased travel speed of the γ-axis to 34 °/s. The permissible top speed of 0.25 m/s pursuant to CIE S 025 is thus possible for a large number of LED sample sizes. Compared to present measurement solutions, for the user this means greatly increased throughput while maintaining a high standard of measurement precision. With an add-on module of the established SpecWin Pro software, a broad range of ErP tests is available for the preparation of test reports according to the EU Directive. Read more »

Lumileds Shows Lifetime Data For LUXEON 3535L Mid Power LEDs

Lumileds Shows Lifetime Data For LUXEON 3535L Mid Power LEDs Lumileds has announced breakthrough LM-80 test results for its LUXEON 3535L Mid Power LED line. Completing 10,000 hours of LM-80 testing at 55˚C, 85˚C and 105˚C, Lumileds has exceeded lumen maintenance requirements of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® program, qualification by the DesignLights Consortium™ (DLC), as well as other emerging specifications. Projections based on TM-21-11 show that the devices will maintain 90% of their initial lumen output (L90) for a minimum of 60,000 hours at a 200 mA drive current and Ts temperature of 85˚C. Exceptional lifetimes were extrapolated at all test conditions. This performance means LUXEON 3535L LEDs can operate in an LED fixture for 13 years* while maintaining at least 90% of their initial brightness. Read more »
