Webinar: The Update of LM-79: Optical and Electrical Measurements of Solid State Lighting Products

August 19, 2021 | 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Free – $20
IES Educational Webinar Series

In 2008 the IES published LM-79, “Approved Method: Electrical and Photometric Measurements of Solid-State Lighting Products.” This measurement standard for solid-state lighting products quickly became the world recognized standard for measuring LED lighting products. In 2019 the IES Test Procedures Committee (TPC) completed a comprehensive review and revision of LM-79. The revision was published as ANSI/IES LM-79, “Approved Method: Optical and Electrical Measurements of Solid-State Lighting Products.” The revision includes better guidance on how to make measurement and requirements that help to reduce measurement variations between different testing facilities. Consideration for these changes was based on information collected from NVLAP proficiency testing, independent research, and an effort to help minimize the burden on testing laboratories. Join us for our first educational session on LM-79 since the revision was published, and learn from experts in this topic Cameron Miller and Eric Bretschneider.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
