LM-80 Life Aging Test System

In the context of the LED technical innovation, many countries start to standardize the specification, testing and certification of LED lighting to regulate and promote the lighting market. The US ENERGY STAR certification is forefront of the world. Currently, the governments of the U.S., the Canadian and Australian are promoting the ENERGY STAR certification. Qualified products can get rebates from many programs in these countries. More and more manufacturer vigorously proceed ENERGY STAR application and certification.

Generally, one year will be needed for ENERGY STAR testing and certification. To shorten the cycle time, the special certification policy was provided for IES LM-80 testing.

The case temperature (Ts) and ambient temperature (Ta) is strictly required by IES LM-80-08. The temperature of the surrounding air should be maintained to within -5°C of the case temperature during testing. Many manufacturer and even some of the laboratories perform the test by temperature and humidity chamber, which can’t control the temperature of Ts precisely, especially for high power LED module or array. The heating is not all for the testing chamber to control the Ts temperature of high power LED, when the Ts may be higher than the controlled target temperature. The poor control of the Ts will lead to the products failed to meet ENERGY STAR lumen maintenance requirements. ANBOTEK, as an ENERGY STAR partner and the best testing and certification body, with strong capacity and rich experience, based on years of development, successfully developed a cost-effective and precise LM-80 aging test system, which can achieve precise control of temperature Ts and Ta. Because of friendly interface, easy operation and lower cost, we got a lot of favor once the equipment is launched. We got many domestic and international invention patents and sold it to many manufacturers in Japan, Taiwan and mainland. Some of them are building their own first party testing laboratory.
