DOE Releases CALiPER Application Summary Report 16

The U.S. Department of Energy has completed Series 16 of testing through the DOE Solid-State Lighting CALiPER program. A summary of the results is now available for download on the DOE SSL website at ssl.energy.gov/reports. Report 16 analyzes the performance of a group of 13 LED products labeled as BR30 or R30 lamps. Results show substantial improvement versus earlier CALiPER testing of similar products, and that many of the LED lamps could be effective replacements for conventional directional lamps in the right application. The report also indicates the need for a broader range of LED lamps within product families in terms of lumen output and distribution type, and questions the adequacy of existing reflector lamp categories for LED products.
