The lamp life test station is a device that can help determine product life spans using statistically significant sampling. Stations can be design with 100 individually monitored and/or controlled sockets with hour-counting and display instruments. The data gathered is used to determine the number of burning hours for the lamps being tested. The end result is a degree of statistical confidence in the life span of your product.

Lamp Life Test Systems are constructed in accordance with the appropriate IES of North America (IES) procedures for the particular lamp type (LM49-2001, LM47-2001, LM60-2001, LM40-2001 and LM65-2001) and the appropriate Energy Star procedures for CFL and LED (Life and Rapid Cycle Stress Test).

The computer rapidly scans all lamps to determine whether any lamp failures have occurred, and it builds a file to display the desired information. This eliminates mechanical time clocks and manual operations, such as the need to perform inspections to detect lamp outages.

Customized versions are also available if there are new standards or unique specifications that you would like to accommodate in the design. While the test station shown here holds 100 bulbs, stations can be designed to hold more or fewer bulbs to suit your needs.
