Meanwhile, LEDs Magazine is putting on a free webcast the same day, March 26, at 11:00 AM Eastern. Sponsored by Intertek and SphereOptics, the webinar is on the topic of “LED Luminaire Photometry & Performance Testing.” It will focus on performance standards developed for testing LED products such as IES LM79: Approved Method for Electrical and Photometric Measurements of Solid-State Lighting Products and LM80: Approved Method for Measuring Lumen Maintenance of LED Light Sources.


According to LEDs Magazine, “Other performance testing options will be discussed, including the two ENERGY STAR programs from the U.S. DOE and EPA; and environmental performance testing, e.g. exposing solid-state lighting to stresses that the product will operate under, such as temperature, humidity, dust, shock, etc.” The speakers are Todd Straka, Director, Lighting Services, Intertek, and Christopher Durell, Vice President Sales & Applications Engineering, Sphereoptics, LLC.
