The end of the lamp-and-luminaire convention heaps responsibility on the lighting specifier to select solid-state fixtures that will meet end-user needs for years or decades to come. The lion’s share of specification-grade LED luminaires available today feature limited preconceived field service capabilities, so failures result in total luminaire replacement. The associated costs of this reality are difficult to explain and defend. To protect client interests and their own, specifiers can learn to identify credible LED lifetime claims in a market increasingly afflicted by noise. ANSI/IES LM-80 and TM-21 are widely misused by suppliers across the global lighting industry with some vendors presenting LED lifetime claims exceeding the average human life expectancy of most countries. Join us for a clarifying discussion about the purpose and continued relevancy of these standards, and best practices of applying them to specification.
