Emerging solid-state technology such as light emitting diodes (LEDs) can provide Australians with high-quality lighting while reducing energy consumption. Reliable measurements of the performance of LED lighting help increase consumer confidence in claimed specifications and facilitate wide-scale adoption.

The National Measurement Institute is hosting a one-day workshop on opportunities and challenges presented by LED lighting and the importance of measuring its performance reliably.

The workshop aims to promote the exchange of information and facilitate discussions on best practice measurement techniques, standards and regulations related to solid state lighting. The program includes presentations from industry and government experts, together with a laboratory tour, demonstrations and a round-table discussion.

The topics covered include the new CIE test method for LEDs (S 025/E: 2015), optical and electrical measurements, lifetime testing and regulations covering LED lighting.

Who should attend:

Testing and calibration specialists, regulators, engineers, scientists, accreditation professionals and users of LED lighting.
