Product Types – Eligible and Ineligible
The LED Lighting Facts program covers general illumination, white-light, solid-state lighting products that are intended to be connected to the electrical grid, consistent with the scope of LM-79. Test reports submitted to LED Lighting Facts must indicate the drivers and power supplies required to operate the products.
*Update 12.16.2016 - On August 1, LED Lighting Facts suspended acceptance of all new replacement lamp submissions in response to the newly adopted DOE test procedure required for LED integral replacement lamps, which took effect on August 1, and recently proposed test procedures for non-integral LED lamps that will take effect at a later date. LED lamp listings are no longer be eligible, and all replacement lamps have been removed from the Lighting Facts database.
Eligible Product Types
Complete Luminaires and Retrofit Kits
Includes products with integral light source(s), driver(s) and other electronics, optics, thermal management, housing, and electrical connections that require only AC mains power or a DC voltage power supply.
Please note that product prototypes should not be submitted for the LED Lighting Facts label; only production-ready products are eligible for labeling. Approving product prototypes that are not commercially available and are likely to experience performance improvements before market introduction does not support the LED Lighting Facts mission. However, limited production runs are acceptable, as performance improvements are likely to be more modest.
Products with Separate (Corded) Power Supplies
LED Lighting Facts will accept performance information for these products only for their exact tested configuration. If the power supply is to be purchased separately, the model number of the tested power supply must be included in the model number field of the submission form, so that the label represents a complete product.
LED Lighting Facts will accept performance information for these products only for their exact tested configuration. For example, if such a product is tested in a one-module configuration, only the performance values for that configuration may be reported.
LED Lighting Facts does not allow prorated power, light output, or efficacy values that account for the effects of multiple modules on a system. If a manufacturer partner wishes to display performance information for a given configuration, the partner must test that exact configuration and submit the data to LED Lighting Facts. Configuration information such as product length, number of modules, and tested power supply should be included in the submission and in the model number field.
Ineligible Product Types
Solar-Powered and/or Battery-Powered LED Lighting Products
LED Lighting Facts is designed to promote the efficiency of products connected to the electrical grid, consistent with the scope of LM-79. Solar-powered and battery-powered products present additional technical issues that may affect product performance, including variable solar charging rates and battery degradation, which are not covered by LM-79.
“Light Strips” or “Light Rolls”
These products are ineligible unless a specific length and configuration is tested with the power supply and any other necessary components are clearly indicated on the LM-79 report.
