Northvale, NJ (PRWEB) January 19, 2015
RAB Lighting Inc. is proud to announce the RAB Lighting Photometry Laboratory has received National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) accreditation (NVLAP Lab Code 201058-0) for energy efficient lighting products. The scope of this accreditation includes test methods conducted to measure colorimetric, electrical and photometric properties of SSL luminaires.
The state-of-the-art facility is equipped with precision instrumentation that includes a goniophotometer, spectroradiometer and integrating sphere. Measurement data from this equipment is used to generate (IES) LM-79 reports that help validate the performance of the company’s industry-leading LED luminaires. These reports include key information such as luminous flux, luminous intensity distribution, electrical performance characteristics, color rendering index and color temperature measurements.
This accreditation is an important milestone for the company, as it serves to shorten the time necessary to perform extensive testing during the product development process and significantly accelerates product time-to-market.
NVLAP is administered by the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) and provides an unbiased third-party evaluation to testing and calibration laboratories. NVLAP accreditation is granted when an applicant laboratory has demonstrated that it operates in accordance with NVLAP management and technical requirements pertaining to: quality systems, personnel, accommodation and environment, test and calibration methods, equipment, measurement traceability, sampling, handling of test and calibration items, and test and calibration reports.
RAB Lighting Photometry Laboratory will provide internal testing and measurement for RAB Lighting Inc. in addition to testing for third-party customers.
