How can we help you with Photometry Testing?
All general lighting products must meet a variety of photometric requirements to ensure quality of light and compliance with regulations relating to aspects such as energy efficiency. DEKRA offers a wide range of photometric tests in its state-of-the-art labs located in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Hong Kong (China), Dresden (Germany), Osnago (Italy) and Arnhem (The Netherlands). Our testing activities cover components, subassemblies, LED modules and complete lighting systems and may lead to certification marks such as ENEC, ENEC+, DEKRA LED Performance, DLC, Lighting Facts and Energy Star
