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 are LM 79 Test Outcomes?

LM-79 is approved test method for electrical and photometric measurements of Solid State Lighting Products. It describes the procedure in measuring total luminous flux, electrical power, luminous intensity distribution, chromaticity under standard conditions. It covers LED based SSL products with control electronics and heat sink incorporated with AC or DC power supply. This does not include LED chips, LED package or LED module but luminaries (fixtures incorporating light source) as well as integrated LED lamps.

The equipment used in LM-79 is integrated sphere and goniophotometer.

Integrating Sphere                          Goniophotometer

The test report shall list all significant data for each SSL product tested together with performance data. The outcomes of the LM-79 test are:

  • Correction factor applied ( e.g. spectral mismatch, self absorption , intensity distribution etc.)
  • Measured total luminous flux( lumen(lm)), input voltage(v), current(a), power(w), Luminous intensity distribution(cd), efficacy(lm/w)
  • Color quantities( chromaticity coordinates, CCT, CRI )
  • Spectral power distribution
  • Bandwidth of spectoradiometer, if spectral distribution and/or color quantities are reported.
  • Statement of uncertainties (if required)
  • Deviation from standard operating procedures, if any.
