LED Lighting Facts Label
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, the LED Lighting Facts program is designed to provide buyers with detailed information about the photometric and efficiency characteristics of the solid-state lighting products they buy, including lamps and lamp systems incorporating light-emitting diode (LED) technology.
The program’s LED Lighting Facts label provides buyers with data on the following performance characteristics:
• Luminaire light output
• Efficacy (i.e., lumens per watt)
• Measured power (watts)
• Correlated color temperature (CCT)
• Color rendering index (CRI)
In addition to the above characteristics, manufacturers can optionally list information on two additional metrics: warranty, and LED lumen maintenance.
Manufacturers who participate in the LED Lighting Facts program generally provide an integrating sphere report using LM-79 test methods. TÜV SÜD America, part of the global TÜV SÜD testing, inspection, and certification organization, is approved to supply manufacturers with the data they need to submit for the LED Lighting Facts program.
TÜV SÜD Capabilities
TÜV SÜD is approved for LM-79: total flux and color (required label metrics; LM-79 sections 9 and 12), LM-79: intensity distribution (optional metrics; LM-79 section 10), and In-situ Temperature Measurement Test (ISTMT). TÜV SÜD America can provide all the necessary testing and explain the program benefits for the marketing and sales of your lighting product.
