Rich document BTS256-EF Measures New Flicker Metrics for Compliance with Ecodesign Directive
The European Commission´s proposed regulation of lighting under the Ecodesign Directive will establish mandatory product performance and quality requirements on all lighting products. This new EU directive will include strict requirements for flicker and stroboscopic effect, collectively referred to as temporal light artefacts (TLA). Simple measures such as flicker index and modulation depth will not be adequate as they do not distinguish the possible TLA effects and do not account for the effect of frequency-dependent sensitivity or the wave shape of light output. The BTS256-EF spectral light and flicker meter measures the specific metrics required by the regulation, PstLM and SVM.
