White LED technology is moving fast to conquer new lighting applications. Though LED-based general lighting fixtures are just beginning to make their way, the number of commercial, replacement-type LED lamps and light engines for decorative lighting applications is rising.
To address this growing market, the Alliance for Solid-State Illumination Systems and Technologies (ASSIST) has published a new volume in its ASSIST recommends series:
Recommendations for Testing and Evaluating White LED Light Engines and Integrated LED Lamps Used in Decorative Lighting Luminaires
The new volume provides recommended test methods and measurement procedures for LED light engines and integrated lamps used in decorative lighting fixtures such as chandeliers, wall sconces, pendants, table and floor lamps.
The volume is available for free download from the ASSIST Web site: www.lrc.rpi.edu/programs/solidstate/assist/lightengine.asp
