LED lighting manual

Tridonic is concentrating its efforts in various bodies and associations of the lighting industry to bring the innovations of LED technology to the markets. One result of this collaboration is the “Reliability of design in LED lighting” manual that has now been published by the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (ZVEI).

The manual mainly aims at

  • providing manufacturers and lighting users with a new and standardised official wording
  • dealing with LED innovations and 
  • facilitating their use in new applications

The rapid development of LED technology and its fast market penetration make it difficult to agree on new standards in terms of electrical engineering and lighting technology. Thus, it is sometimes hard for luminaire developers to understand performance parameters.

The brochure includes technical terms, definitions and measurement methods. By specifying the required terms and describing the methods of measurement, a standardised official wording is provided to all those involved. For preparing the manual, the most recent technical standards have been taken into account, so that now manufacturers and lighting users can benefit from it and products can be compared more easily.

The LED manual is available for downloading free of charge at the ZVEI homepage.
