In line with the initiatives taken to enhance testing facilities, the ACCIMT has started setting up of a light measurement laboratory to measure photometric characteristics of CFL, Led light sources, which include AC and DC domestic and automobile lamps. Setting up of this new facility would be beneficial for manufactures, importers and finally the consumers.
This new facility established at the ACCIMT enables either manufacturers or importers to find out performance of their products with respect to rated or anticipated specifications. Hence more importantly manufacturers would be able to continuously improve their products. This facility will be able to measure not only photometric characteristics but also electrical characteristic of a bulb with very high precision. The electrical parameters that can be measured include total harmonic distortion, power consumption, wattage, voltage and current and photometric parameters include luminous efficacy, colour temperature, total radiant flux, lumen flux, colour coordinates etc.
One of the most latest and upto date version of integrated software platform is used for testing, analyzing and report generation purposes. Further the software package used is one of the most innovative and user friendly software to measure specific customer requirements in light measurement.
Compliance against following two Sri Lankan National standards
- SLS 1225:2002
- SLS 1231 Part 1 2002
for energy efficiency of self ballasted lamps and performance of lamps can be tested using this facility.
New Light Measurement Facility was installed recently for testing various types of lamps as per SLS 1231:Part 1:2002
