Development of a Predictive Reliability Test Method for Solid-State Luminaires, Light Engines, and Integral Lamps
The project builds on work that the Lighting Research Center (LRC) has conducted over the past three years to develop a cost-effective, accelerated life test method that can predict the whole system life of LED luminaires, light engines, and integral lamps at any given environment temperature and system use pattern. The project allows the LRC to expand this work to a wider range of LED luminaire and lamp types, further validate the testing method developed, and move the method forward toward broad industry adoption and standardization.
