A Guide To The Specification of LED Lighting Products- Part 4 of 4

Luminaire Manufacturers Design Data


When evaluating LED luminaire performance claims it is important to compare a standardised set of quality criteria measured in compliance with the appropriate standard. 

Luminaire Manufacturers Design Data

These quality criteria are designed to ensure that performance claims can be matched
against traceable data.

This data is summarised below:

    1) Rated input power (in W)
    2) Rated luminous flux (in lm)
     3) LED luminaire efficacy (in lm/W)
    4) Luminous intensity distribution
    5) Photometric code
        5a) Correlated Colour Temperature (CCT in K)
        5b) Rated Colour Rendering Index (CRI)
        5c) Rated chromaticity co-ordinate values (initial and maintained)
        5d) Maintained Luminous Flux
    6) Rated life (in h) of the LED module and the associated rated lumen maintenance (Lx)
    7) Failure fraction (Fy), corresponding to the rated life of the LED module in the luminaire
    8) Ambient temperature (ta) luminaire
    9) Power Factor
    10) Intensity Distribution
    11) Drive Current
    12) Optical Risk
