ASSIST: Alliance for Solid-State Illumination Systems and Technologies
ASSIST recommends... LED Light Engines and Integrated LED Lamps
Published May 2008; Revised April 2009
This volume of ASSIST recommends provides recommended test methods and measurement procedures for
estimating the performance of fully assembled LED-based light engines or integrated lamps
used in decorative lighting
of this document is to encourage common, consistent methods of testing and data presentation for ease of interpretation and comparison, which will assist luminaire manufacturers in selecting suitable LED light engines and integrated LED lamps for their decorative lighting products.
April 2009 Revision: This revision deletes previously recommended testing for the “worst-case scenario” application use. It also updates the definition of LED lamp, integrated to match the definition listed in the Illuminating Engineering Society’s most recent (May 2008) addendum of RP-16-05, Nomenclature and Definitions for Illuminating Engineering.
