In our surge test lab, we have two machines: one capable of 10kV/5kA and a larger machine for up to 30kV/15kA to test luminaires with surge protection integrated.
We can test different operating conditions of our drivers to deliver performance measurements and plots for parameters from efficiency to thermal and can provide you with the data upon request.
The following are additional capabilites for emergency products
Bodine (Specific EM Validation Tests)
Mechanical Installation Optimization
We find a suitable location within a given luminaire where an EM unit can be mounted/connect.
UL 924 Battery Discharge Testing
By connecting an EM unit to an LED load, charging it for 24 hours, and performing a full 90-minute discharge, we monitor battery voltage and current along with other parameters such as output voltage and power.
UL 924 Minimum Light Output Testing
This test is completed by mounting a luminaire or light source in a dark room along with an EM unit that has been fully charged, measuring the light output in foot-candles (lux) after one minute into the discharge.
We work with luminaire manufacturers and their preferred approbations agencies to help obtain required certifications for adding an EM unit as an option into their luminaire.
