New UL Classified LED Retrofit Kit helps manufacturers efficiently incorporate LED technology into existing luminaire designs
NORTHBROOK, Ill., May 15, 2014 /CNW/ - UL, a global safety science leader, introduced today a streamlined process for manufacturers to obtain a UL listing for LED surface-mounted tube lamps. With significant growth projected in the LED market, manufacturers are looking for ways to incorporate LED technology into existing luminaire designs. After examining the needs of manufacturers, UL designed an approach that helps them move products to market quickly while preserving safety levels.
UL's Classified LED Retrofit Conversion Kit provides a simple process for converting surface-mounted luminaires from fluorescent light source technology to LED light source technology. 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.
"UL is dedicated to maintaining high levels of safety in new LED applications while continuing to act as an important ingredient in our lighting customers' success in the marketplace," said Roberto Inclinati, a UL business development manager. "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."
