At Light Corporation, we stringently test our luminaires on all aspects of build quality and efficacy. This information can be used to help guide the product designers when choosing materials, a particular LED chip or what heat sink to use when running at a particular power.
All LED luminaires are tested in-house for the quantity, colour, quality and spatial distribution of light emitted. The results measured by the spectrometer are exported as IES files by default, but can converted to other formats for the convenience of lighting technicians and designers. Along with the ies files, the infomation collected allows us to create accurate specification sheets.
As part of the data collection for the spec sheets, all LED luminaires are temperature tested using a Thermocouple Data logger. These measurements are made both quickly and accurately whilst the luminaire is held in a unnaturally compromised situation, way beyond that at which it would normally operate - the proverbial bucket of sand.
Whether they are to be installed on the deck of a Super Yacht or along a garden path - all our IP rated fittings are rigorously tested to see how well they perform in extreme conditions. We have a 2m deep acrylic tube designed to test our submersible, wet area products. Testing for water ingress in this way allows us to give our clients complete peace of mind and confidence in our products.
Having the ability to measure this data in-house allows us to be eminently proactive to a clients request. If a certain LED is required or a ceiling void is a certain depth, a customer can be safe in the knowledge that we have replicated a 'worse case' scenario to test our fittings to assure you of the very ‘best case’ outcomes for your project.
