Abstract:
The work presents a statistical summary of the results obtained in the photometric, thermal, chemical and mechanical tests carried out in the Laboratorio de Acústica y Luminotecnia (LAL) for street lighting luminaires with LED technology in the period 2017/18. The study covers 152 luminaires and includes samples from different manufacturers or origin, same type or model (for example, a same body) with different alternatives of LED plates. The results of luminance and illuminance evaluations carried out in converted facilities (or in the test stage) are also discussed. The results presented are important both for importers and manufacturers of LED luminaires and for designers and installers, since they allow visualizing the points that deserve attention in order to achieve a product of suitable quality.
