Everlight LED lighting components complete LM80 testing

Everlight Electronics Co Ltd (Taiwan’s largest LED assembly manufacturer) has introduced several low-, mid- and high-power LED lighting components that adopted the LM80 test.

Standardization has become a key factor in LED adoption in the global lighting market - not only in safety standards and performance standards but also, more importantly, in reliability and lifetime testing, says Everlight. LM80 is the lighting standard for lumen maintenance testing with which all major LED makers are now complying. All lighting-class LEDs are required to pass a standardized test method of at least 6000 hours and at certain controlled conditions. So, each LED that is tested - regardless of manufacturer - can be judged against other tested LEDs on an equal basis and hence compared.

Everlight says that, as it is one of the world’s largest LED makers (and lighting is its main focus), all existing Everlight lighting LEDs will be fully tested by 2013. So far, five of the more popular LED products have already completed LM80 testing. These range from low-power (PLCC 3528 and 3020) to mid-power (PLCC 5630) to high-power (Ceramic 3535 and 3045) series, giving users a thorough lumen-maintenance reference for each category of LED. These LEDs have been tested to a full 6000 hours and three LED case temperatures by a fully accredited NVLAP laboratory. Official test reports are available upon request and will soon be posted to Everlight’s website.
