ETC Fixture Ratings and Warranties Extended
The LM84 standard is complex and can take thousands of hours to complete. Because of this, ETC has elected to send full LED fixtures to a nationally-recognized, third-party test lab for comprehensive evaluation. This lab tests fixtures in an environment that replicates how you, the end user will use them.
One of the biggest misconceptions of the L70 rating is that it applies to the entire fixture when in fact, it only applies to the LEDs themselves. The way a fixture is manufactured, including the quality of thermal management systems, heavily dictates the life expectancy of the LEDs. This is why ETC sends the full fixture for testing – you should be confident that the LED rating for your fixture will not be impacted by additional hardware or software components.
ETC is proud to announce that upon completed testing several of their fixtures are reaching higher L70 ratings than originally anticipated.
