This approved method describes the procedures to be followed and precautions to be observed in performing reproducible measurements of total luminous flux, electrical power, luminous intensity distribution, and chromaticity, of solid-state lighting (SSL) products for illumination purposes, under standard conditions. This approved method covers LED-based SSL products with control electronics and heat sinks incorporated, that is, those devices that require only AC mains power or a DC voltage power supply to operate. This document does not cover SSL products that require external operating circuits or external heat sinks (e.g., LED chips, LED packages, and LED modules). This document covers SSL products in a form of luminaires (fixtures incorporating light sources) as well as integrated LED lamps. This document does not cover fixtures designed for SSL products sold without a light source. This document describes test methods for individual SSL products and does not cover the determination of the performance rating of products, in which individual variations among the products should be considered.
