DOE Publishes CALiPER Snapshot On LED Industrial Luminaires
April 7, 2017

The U.S. Department of Energy's CALiPER program has released a new Snapshot Report on LED industrial luminaires. Among the key findings of the Snapshot, which is based on DOE's LED Lighting Facts® database:

-The efficacy of LED industrial luminaires is notably higher than what’s typical of their incumbent counterparts. About 23% of the industrial luminaires listed with LED Lighting Facts listed products have a luminous efficacy greater than 130 lm/W.

-Listed industrial fixtures have higher efficacy performance than do listed linear, troffer, area/roadway, and parking garage fixtures.

-Color and power quality for listed industrial luminaires is similar to that of their conventional counterparts. The listed products have a variety of CCTs, with the majority (51%) at least 5000 K, and 65% of the luminaires have a CRI Ra in the 80s.

In terms of the data reported in the Snapshot, LED industrial products offer a compelling alternative to their incumbent counterparts. While the report focuses on basic photometric characteristics, choosing a product for a specific installation requires a more comprehensive analysis, including light distribution, projected lifetime, lumen maintenance, and cost.

For a closer look at the findings, download the full report.
