LED lighting has entered the main stream, replacing the traditional lightbulb and reflecting a growing demand for more energy-efficiency, advanced controls, cost savings, and potential health benefits, all of which are offered by light-emitting diode (LED) technology. LED adapts to a wide range of applications, including commercial, industrial, and residential uses.
LED lighting has entered the main stream, replacing the traditional lightbulb and reflecting a growing demand for more efficient illumination that can dramatically cut energy costs.The LED power driver is an electrical device that regulates power to LEDs, helping to prevent damage to your LED lights. EEC provides a broad range of AC power sources featuring a variety of voltages for LED testing solutions that are suitable for R&D, QA/QC, and mass production.
Testing Standards for LED Products
As demand for LED continues to grow, individual lighting manufacturers will need to distinguish their products’ reputation for superior quality and safety through industry standard tests.
These testing standards include the International Electrotechnical Commission’s (IEC) global testing standard, China’s Guobiao (GB) standard, and Taiwan’s Chinese National Standard (CNS). While various countries may have localized standards, in many cases the testing criteria overlap with slight variance in testing values.
|International Electrotechnical Commission|
|Chinese National Standard|
|IEC Standard 61347: Lamp Control Gear||GB 7000||CNS 14335|
|IEC Standard 60598: Luminaires||GB 16844||CNS 15357|
|IEC 62031 : General Lighting Modules||GB 19510.14||CNS 15467|
In general, these standards set a range of safety requirements for protective earthing, moisture resistance and insulation, electrical strength, and protection against electrical shocks.
To confirm that these safety requirements are met, the following specific tests must be performed, depending LED product’s stage of life: dielectric withstand (ACW), ground bond (GB), insulation resistance (IR), and touch current (TCT).

As the LED lighting market continues to grow, manufacturers face stricter and more complex standards. EEC provides a range of safety testing and power supply solutions that allow manufacturers to exceed these standards with the safest and highest-quality lighting for their customers. Our testing solutions accommodate the entire supply chain, from R&D to production floor.
