    Product Detailed Description
    This document recommends a method for projecting the lumen maintenance of LED light sources from the data obtained by the procedures found in IES document LM-80-08 Approved Method for Measuring Lumen Maintenance of LED Light Sources.

    LED light sources provide a very long usable life but light output gradually depreciates over time.  TM-21-11 provides the method for determining when the “useful lifetime” of an LED is reached, a point when the light emitted from an LED depreciates to a level where it is no longer considered adequate for a specific application.  Lumen maintenance of LEDs can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and between different LED package types produced by a single manufacturer.
