This program, conducted with safety consulting and certification company in cooperation UL, is open to all manufacturers whose luminaires have passed Xicato’s thermal validation, a complimentary program offered by Xicato to its customers.

Established by the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES), the LM-79 testing methodology specifies measuring the absolute electrical and photometric performance of a complete solid-state lighting luminaire rather than individual parts of the system, and is increasingly a requirement for regional and national programs. Test results include total flux (light output), electrical power, efficacy, chromaticity, and intensity distribution, all of which are required for the LED Lighting Facts label.

UL said it is prepared to manage the testing of LED Luminaires featuring Xicato modules at its global photometric testing facilities.

The new LM-79 testing program supports Xicato’s goal to make LED lighting as foolproof and future-proof as possible. The company’s whole-product approach, thermal validation program and this new LM-79 program contribute to end-user confidence in solutions that provide high quality light with demonstrated color, consistency and light output performance. For Xicato’s OEMs, it provides a path to lower costs and significantly shorter time to market for quality lighting solutions.
