As the availability of more powerful LEDs become readily available there is a gradual increase in the number of LED streetlights being manufactured. These new LED streetlights allow manufacturers better product differentiation based on style, profile, life rating and other factors. One challenge that still exists for manufacturers, however, is to determine the requirements to which their products must conform. Some manufacturers focus on available product safety standards, such as ANSI/UL, CSA, and IEC, but they overlook the fact that in order to sell these products to the market – primarily utility providers and municipalities - there are other specifications that must be considered in the design phase.
This presentation will provide a summary of the safety, performance, and general construction requirements that are included in specifications today.
