With a view to future energy-efficient lighting solutions in buildings, Instrument Systems has optimized its LGS 350 goniophotometer system for highly accurate and fast testing of medium-sized LED modules according to the EU Eco-Design Directive. The LGS 350 system features an 85 % increased travel speed of the γ-axis to 34 °/s. The permissible top speed of 0.25 m/s pursuant to CIE S 025 is thus possible for a large number of LED sample sizes. Compared to present measurement solutions, for the user this means greatly increased throughput while maintaining a high standard of measurement precision. With an add-on module of the established SpecWin Pro software, a broad range of ErP tests is available for the preparation of test reports according to the EU Directive.

The latest DoE market report for OLEDs sounds much more modest than some older market reports when DoE concludes in the management summary: With rapid advances in these areas, this technology could become the complementary solid-state counterpart to LEDs, a dynamic and softly luminous luminaire element and building material. On the positive side, DoE states that while OLEDs are struggling through a similar set of difficulties like LEDs did in the early years, OLED manufacturers have the advantage of having watched and learned from the LED industry’s working through these problems.
