Recent developments in the LED technology have fueled the transition of the lighting industry from traditional light sources (incandescent, fluorescent, HID) to the light-emitting diode (LED). Whether it’s about import or manufacturing, code compliance or lighting applications: the evaluation of the LED lamps and fixtures requires specific knowledge and understanding of technical parameters.
The course focuses on basic knowledge in three main areas: lighting, electricity and thermal regime. The presentation continues with design and construction details and recommends selection criteria of LED luminaires as a function of lighting performance, total cost, work environment, and ecological impact.
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
Understand and apply lighting terminology and parameters to LED lamps and luminaries
Evaluate the performance and reliability of a LED lamp retrofit or LED luminaire
Identify the compliance of lighting products with specific codes and standards
Select the replacement of traditional lighting sources with LED lighting
Develop basic skills for specification of LED luminaires based on lighting performance, cost, ergonomics, and ecology
