UL streamlines certification process for LED surface-mounted tube lamps
By Alyssa Dalton
July 7, 2014 – After examining the needs of manufacturers, UL says it has designed a streamlined process for manufacturers to obtain a UL listing for LED surface-mounted tube lamps.
The classified LED retrofit conversion kit provides a simple process to efficiently incorporate LED technology into existing luminaire designs, it says. Through the combination of the UL Listed surface-mounted fluorescent tube lamp luminaire design and the factory installation of the conversion kit, UL eliminates the need to conduct a temperature test on the final product, saving time and money. “This approach to UL certification for LED surface-mounted luminaires offers a cost-effective solution that recognizes the need to get products to market quickly,” says Roberto Inclinati, a UL business development manager.
