Tests Conducted 

  • Tests Conducted
    • High voltage test (dielectric withstand test) 
      Measures the ability of Lighting product to withstand a high voltage applied between a Luminaire electrical circuit and the ground.
    • Leakage current test 
      Evaluates whether current that flows between an AC source and the ground does not exceed a specified limit.
    • Insulation resistance test 
      Calibrates the quality of the electrical insulation used.
    • Ground continuity test 
      Ensures that a clear path is available between all exposed metal surfaces and the power system ground.
    • Endurance test 
      Thermal cycling  
    • Photobiological Safety Testing 
      LED Lamps emit different wavelengths of light which can have potential health effects if exposure is excessive. Photobiological safety testing evaluates the risk of eye damage and other health concerns related to LED light exposure.
    • Mechanical Testing
      Mechanical stress & impacts will be applied on luminaire to assess its structural integrity and resistance to physical damage.
    • Heat Dissipation Testing
      Lighting Lamps & Luminaries generate heat during operation, and proper heat dissipation is critical for safety & efficiency. Heat dissipation testing evaluates the ability of the luminaire to dissipate heat and ensures that it operates within safe temperature limits.
    • Overcurrent and Overload Testing 
      It is the ability of Lighting Lamps & luminaires to withstand overcurrent and overload conditions without presenting posing threat to Safety.
