Why Do We Need to LM 79 Test?

LED is becoming so popular that it has replaced all other lightning sources like candescent lamp, CFL. Manufacturer have shifted to produce LED and making profits by selling low quality products in the market. This can deteriorate the LED business. LM 79 helps to access the LED by giving the photometric parameters and electrical parameters.

LM 79 focus on the absolute photometry, so it directly measures the total lumen of the complete lightning system including fixture, driver etc. LM 79 test report gives electrical and photometric parameter.

Photometric parameter: Luminous flux (lm), efficacy (lm/w), Luminous intensity distribution (candela), chromaticity coordinates, correlated color temperature (CCT), color rendering index (CRI)

Electrical parameter: voltage, current, frequency, power, power factor.

LM 79 Data enable objective product comparison and allows for evaluation relative to performance requirement.

What are the limitations of LM-79?

Posted on

What are the limitations of LM-79?

As we all know about the strength of LM 79. Everything has its pros and cons. Let us have a look on the drawbacks of LM 79.

  • LM 79 depicts the parameters of the individual products. So the obtained Parameters cannot be used to access alike products.
  • Other limitation is the sample size. It does not state any sample size. So, the manufacturer provides only one sample instead of supplying more. This thus increases the vulnerability of lesser quality products.
  • This can be used only to determine complete luminary instead of LED used ( as based on absolute photometry) , which can produce different results due to quality of accessories used like glass, thermal effect, lenses etc.

What is Relative Photometry?

Posted on

What is relative photometry?

Total Lumen output of a bare lamp is measured in relative photometry   for more clarity; the total luminous flux of the lamp is measured separately without the Fixture. In IES LM-80- 08, IES LM 82-12, the relative photometry is used. The purpose is to find light output, Efficacy, color over temperature for light engines.

Relative photometry can measures:

  • Total luminous flux of the bare lamp
  • Luminous intensity distribution
  • Scale the luminous intensity values by the ratio of the measured lamp lumens to the rated lamp lumens.

Some important features regarding relative photometry:

  1. Relative photometry is performed for luminaries with conventional sources.
  2. Luminaries test is referenced to the luminous Flux measured for bare lamp.
  3. The result produced is in the units of candela per rated lumens( cd/rated lm)
  4. It can also measure the efficiency of luminary.
  5. Normalize ballast factor, Lamp age.
  6. Specific lamp performance doesn’t matter

Relative photometry is not used in SSL with integrated lamps due to many reasons:

  • The LED‘s are difficult to remove from the Luminaries.
  • A large number of LED devices will not work properly without heat sinks provided with luminaries.
  • The thermal environment that the LED devices undergo within the luminary is often radically different from the thermal environment it will practice in its “bare lamp” configuration.

Test method for total luminous flux Measurements:

The total luminous flux of SSL product shall be measured with an Integrating Sphere or Goniophotometer. The method may be chosen depending upon what other measurements quantities (color, intensity distribution) need to be measured., the size of SSL products, and other requirements.

The integrating sphere is suited for total luminous flux and color measurements of integrated LED lamps and relative small size LED luminaries. Advantage of using integrating sphere is that it does not requires the “ Dark Room”., and also it is less time consuming.

The Goniophotometer provides measurements of Luminous Intensity Distribution as well as total luminous flux. It can take measurements of larger size luminaries as well as small size luminaries. It has to be installed in Dark Room. Measurements in goniophotometer are time consuming.

How LM-79 testing can help assess LED luminary quality and performance?

Posted on

How LM-79 testing can help assess LED luminary quality and performance?

We all believe in buying quality products. Discovery of LED is boon to our world. LED has replaced all the traditional lightning systems because of its quality, life and performance.  Manufacturers are switching from manufacturing traditional lightning to produce LED lighting. Many of the manufacturers are making unsubstantial claims regarding colour quality, luminous flux (lm), efficacy (lm/w) and general quality. This can Lead to LED degradation. To ensure quality, a series of test has to be performed on LED luminaries for its long term survival. This is served by LM 79 test method. It is not only the LED but the whole SSL has to qualify all the tests.

For special purpose, it may be useful to determine the characteristics of SSL products when they are operated at other than standard conditions described in the approved method.

Photometric testing includes measurements of total radiant flux, luminous flux, Efficacy (lm/w), chromaticity, correlated color temperature (CCT), and color rendering index (CRI), Light Intensity Distribution (cd). Radiant flux, expressed in watts, is a measurement of the total power of electromagnetic radiation (light) emitted from the luminary or lamp. Luminous flux is a weighted measurement based on human visual perception.

The above measured parameters help to access the LED luminary quality and performance.

ITC india Pvt Ltd is a leading company to test LM 79, company has both the highly accurate equipments “The Integrating Sphere” & “  The Goniophotometer” installed at its premises.

ITC india is a NABL accredited lab having full scope of LM 79( certificate no. T-3510.)
