DOE Publishes New CALiPER Snapshot On Troffers
January 18, 2017

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

-The efficacy of LED troffers is notably higher than what’s typical of troffers that are fitted with fluorescent lamps. About 10% of the listed products had a luminous efficacy greater than 125 lm/W – substantially higher than the efficacy of fluorescent-based troffers, which tops out at under 100 lm/W.

-Color and power quality for troffers were very similar to that of fluores­cent troffers.

-The LED troffers had a variety of CCTs, but almost all of them had a CRI in the 80s.

A lot has changed since the last time a CALiPER Snapshot report included troffers, which was in April 2014. Back then, the mean efficacy for troffers was 90 lm/W; today it’s 102 lm/W. In terms of the data captured by LED Lighting Facts and reported in the new Snapshot, LED troffers offer a compelling alternative to fluorescent troffers. This applies to both troffer luminaires and troffer retrofit kits, whose performance was nearly indistinguishable. While the new report focuses on basic photometric characteristics, choosing a product for a specific installation requires a more comprehensive analysis.

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