Date Announced: 12 Jul 2012 LM-80 testing continues to be an important component of LED lighting development. Orb Optronix, the first fully-independent ISO 17025 certified IES LM-80 testing facility in the United States, has been chosen by the Korea Photonics Technology Institute (KOPTI) to provide full IES LM-80:2008 Lifetime Lumen Maintenance and Measurement Hardware for the creation of a full IES LM-80 Test and Measurement Lab Facility in South Korea.IES LM-80:2008 provides a standard for measuring the lumen output of high-brightness LEDs over time at specific temperatures. It is a key standard in the emerging LED lighting industry and an essential indicator of how LEDs will perform as part of the lighting development process.This is an important step in LED lighting, as KOPTI is an Industrial Technology Research Institute specializing in Photonics Technology. The Institute primarily supports the Photonics Industry through new technologies and products as a result of Research and Development Activities and Industry Support Services such as Joint R & D, Pilot Production, Test & Reliability Assessment, Patent Analysis and Distribution. KOPTI shares their high-performance laboratory equipment and clean room facilities with photonics companies for developing LED's, Optical Communication Modules, Precision Optical Components (which are key technologies of Solid State Lighting), High Speed/Capacity Communications, and High Performance Optical Instruments. Orb Optronix provides the most state-of-the-art hardware and software solutions for LED characterization and measurement to our customers.
