Linear LED Lamps: Application and Interoperability Evaluation

Linear LED Lamp Evaluation
Publication Date: 

CLTC collaborated with the Emerging Technologies group at the Pacific Gas & Electric Company to evaluate linear LED lamps in a variety of fixture applications as well as identify any interoperability issues.

The goal of this project was to evaluate linear light-emitting diode (LED) lamps intended to replace equivalent linear fluorescent systems when operating under real-world conditions expected of commercial retrofits and in fixtures other than recessed troffers. Project objectives include evaluation and documentation of product performance as compared to a standard linear fluorescent baseline in terms of photometrics, energy use, and cross-compatibility of products within linear LED lamp type categories A and C.

Full project results are provided in the report below.  Summarized results are provided in the LD+A article.
