Workshop A
Standards for LED Lighting: What’s the Current Status and Where Are the Gaps
Standards are playing an essential role in the growth of the LED lighting market and the rate of adoption of LED lighting in various applications. Without standards, performance comparisons can be difficult or impossible, and specifications cannot be traced to a meaningful reference. This can make customers and specifiers uneasy about using LED lighting for their projects. With standards in place, such issues can be alleviated. Various standards have already been issued, relating to both performance and safety of LED-containing products. This Workshop reviews the existing standards that are in place both internationally and in North America, and looks at the ongoing work to create new standards. Initiatives such as the Zhaga consortium will be discussed, as well as the different photometric measurements that are called for by various standards.
Workshop B
Building the Perfect Luminaire: Essential Considerations When Designing Effective LED Lighting
Due to the nature of LED light sources, the design of high-quality LED-based lighting fixtures requires specific design competences. OEMs and producers of LED-based luminaires must decide whether they have sufficient in-house expertise and resources, or if they need to select a partner with the appropriate knowledge in LEDs, electronics and associated components. These and other considerations are discussed in the “CELMA Guide for OEMs and Producer of LED-Based Luminaires,” which will be presented during the Workshop. Further presentations will then focus in more detail on three specific technical areas that are all essential parts of a well-designed LED-based luminaire, namely optics, drivers and thermal management.
