LRC Research Develops Accelerated Prediction Method for LED System Life

In the most recent issue of LEDs Magazine, Director of Research Nadarajah Narendran  discusses LRC research focused on LED system reliability which revealed that some LED products available on the commercial market can fail much sooner in some applications than manufacturers’ lamp life specifications would suggest. The studies found that the current industry practice for rating lamp life does not capture the different failure modes that exist when LED products are used in real-world applications. The results provide encouragement that a test procedure can be developed to accurately predict LED system life within a 3000-hour testing period. Read more
