Right now is a very exciting time for the LED lighting industry as every day seems to bring innovative technologies and new products.
Here at ShineRetrofits.com, we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date on the latest LED advancements and always striving to bring our customers the newest lamps, luminaires and fixtures.
That is why we are so excited to tell you about the latest addition to our site -- Encore LED's DLC Premium LED Retrofit Kits. These 4th generation fixtures have a DLC Premium listing, which means they meet higher lumen efficiencies and greater performance standards than any other retrofit kit currently available in the industry.
Let's take a closer look at exactly what DLC Premium is and what these LED Retrofit Kits are all about.
What is DLC Premium?
In the LED industry, many times LED lamps and fixtures will be DLC listed, which is a specification set by the DesignLights Consortium -- a collaboration between federal, regional, state, utility, and energy efficiency program members, luminaire manufacturers, lighting designers, and other industry stakeholders throughout the US and Canada. This certification helps ensure commercial lighting products meet high standards of quality, performance and energy efficiency.
DLC Premium takes the DLC listing up a notch by requiring luminaires and retrofit kits meet higher efficacy and lumen maintenance requirements outlined in a detailed Technical Requirements Table. Additionally, these products must also provide a driver ISTMT (In-Situ Temperature Measurement Testing), which is the temperature of the LED source case within a lamp or luminaires when it is operating, as well as information about its integral controls, such as photosensors and occupancy sensors. And products must also must meet an L90 of >36,000 hours and provide detailed safety certifications.
