Whitepaper: High Performance Test Equipment Assures LED Lighting Products Comply with Industry Standards

Manufacturers and users of LED lighting applications need to be assured that their products will be qualified according to a multitude of reliability and efficiency standards. In addition to voluntary initiatives and programs like EnergyStar, mandatory standards and specifications for the lighting industry must be kept in mind during project development, including the latest IES LM-79-19 and the ANSI C82.16 documents.

This article gives an overview of relevant lighting standards and specifications for LED lighting products. It also describes the features of Vitrek’s test equipment, including the PA900 power analyzer — featuring built-in lighting specifications — as well as Vitrek’s electronic DC loads and hipot testers. These portable testing devices, with their selectable touchscreens and other user-friendly features, allow engineers and technicians to easily confirm that their LED lighting products meet the necessary parameters for performance, energy efficiency, verification and safety — before the products are sent to testing facilities.


Application Notes

257xR Lighting Ballast Analyzer

The 257xR ballast analyzers have been adopted by ballast/lighting manufacturers worldwide because of their greatly enhanced technological capabilities, greatly reduced setup and maintenance requirements and low cost of ownership. Vitrek sets the new industry standard for lighting testing equipment.

With the 257xR, up to four tubes and four ballasts can be tested in a fraction of a second for every key parameter, including peak inrush, striking and light efficiency (when used with a light monitor.) With a capacity of 2,000 measurements per second on each of up to 30 signals, the only limitation to testing throughput is the speed of your production line.

The 257xR ballast analyzer can be used in stand alone or computer controlled environments for lighting testing applications. It allows the user to simultaneously measure all pins on all tubes, independent output measurements, 12 voltages and 12 currents, (i.e. independent tube V and I measurement, independent filament V and I, for each tube that is configured). Continuous sampling at up to 2 Msps ensures that even the shortest transient events are measured.
