Luminus’ lab accredited for testing LEDs to LM-80 standard

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which manufactures PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for illumination applications, says that its Boston-area R&D and Testing Laboratory has been accredited to conduct testing on LEDs to the LM-80 standard (the approved method for measuring LED light sources). The accreditation to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 is awarded by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), and the standard is endorsed by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the Illumination Engineering Society (IES).

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) administers the NVLAP, accrediting public and private laboratories based on evaluation of their technical qualifications and competence to carry out specific calibrations or tests.

“The rapid growth of LED technology has resulted in increased customer interest and the need for accurate measurements to industry standards in LED quality and performance,” says Arvind Baliga Ph.D., VP of engineering at Luminus. “This accreditation will cut our product development time, and assure our growing customer base that Luminus’ ‘big chip’ LEDs will deliver the promised light and color performance to specifications over a long period of time,” he adds. “The reports generated by our LM-80 testing are also critical if customers wish to seek an Energy Star certificate.”

Luminus says that its ‘big chip’ LEDs enable major global brands that manufacture products for general lighting, signs and displays, projectors, entertainment lighting, portable lighting, medical devices and UV curing.
