KKDC Testing and Standards
With the on-going education in the marketplace and the gradual introduction and
adoption of standards and associated testing, more designers and specifiers have a
good understanding of the hidden factors involved in producing colour consistent,
stable and durable LED products.
As a global company, selling a quality product in the most discerning markets, all our
products undergo external testing by independent accredited authorities to quantify
and substantiate their performance.
KKDC products are tested to the IES LM79 photometric standard by the UK’s only UKAS
(ILAC) accredited, independent commercial laboratory currently doing so (LUX-TSI Ltd).
Certification and provision of data from LM79 testing by an internationally accredited
laboratory is currently considered best practice worldwide for the testing of complete
Through the European CE scheme, ETL and UL certification all KKDC products maintain
the most internationally recognised safety standards, including specific local requirements such as PSE for Japanese market.
Our research and manufacturing processes also incorporate many electrical and
photometric testing procedures both for individual components and finished
Chromaticity testing in production quality control; thermal shock and harsh
environment testing of housings and electronics; and extended duration testing.
Our testing program ensures products will perform as designed throughout their lifetime
– even in the most demanding environments.
We look to provide our own test data
wherever it can add useful understanding for specifiers beyond that provided by
- Accredited independent photometric testing to IES LM79.
