L70 is a common rating system used throughout the LED fixture industry. There is, however, some confusion as to what the standard does and does not define. For example, it’s clear when an incandescent fixture reaches its end of life; it simply stops working. With LED fixtures it’s not as obvious because LEDs slowly get dimmer over time. The L70 rating was created as a way to measure when the LEDs of a fixture are no longer “useful.” This rating is determined from an outcome of testing to the LM84 standard and gives a representation of the amount of hours it will take for LEDs to depreciate to 70% of their original output.
