Luxonic is one of only three UK lighting manufacturers equipped to carry out stringent and accurate testing of their products, with our custom suite of testing facilities in the Luxlab. We do not estimate lumen output of our luminaires, based on the control gear and other components used. Nor do we send our products for external testing. Specific tests are carried out with the prime directive of ensuring Luxonic can guarantee the highest level of performance. In many cases we not only meet our customers' needs, we surpass them.
A goniophotometer is a device used for measuring the light emitted from a source at different angles. Goniophotometers enable us to measure both the angle dependent optical quantities as well as the overall performance of a light source or luminaire. Measurements possible include luminous intensity distribution, beam angle, Centre Beam Candle Power (CBCP), total luminous flux and beam flux. This device is absolutely critical in order to produce absolute photometry.
An integrating sphere is a device consisting of a hollow spherical cavity with a diffuse white reflective coating. The sphere’s purpose is to measure optical radiation. Integrating spheres are used for several optical, photometric or radiometric measurements. They are used to measure the total light radiated in all directions from a light source.
Thermal Test Chamber
A thermal test chamber is an enclosure used to test the effects of temperature on the performance of products, devices and components. This device artificially replicates the conditions under which certain components or products might be exposed. For example, a luminaire specified for installation in factory areas where temperatures exceed average ambient levels could be tested at very high temperatures to ensure that the product is capable of performing to its required standard when in the field.
Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) testing is the measurement of unintentional generation, propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy which may cause unwanted effects such as electromagnetic interference and potential physical damage to equipment. We ensure our products will operate as expected when installed on site and meet all EMC and RF regulations.
