ATLANTA, Ga. - Samsung LED (CEO, Jaekwon Kim) announced on September 20th that its mid-power 2323 LED package has now exceeded 6,000 hours of independent, EPA recognized 3rd party IES LM80 testing and the company is now able to provide LM80 test data upon request.

IES LM-80-2008 is the industry standard that defines the method for testing LED lamps, arrays and modules to determine their lumen depreciation characteristics. The goal of LM-80 is to allow a reliable comparison of test results among laboratories by establishing uniform test methods. This test data now enables LED luminaire and lamp manufacturers to satisfy ENERGY STAR® Lumen maintenance requirements and lessens the qualification time for ENERGY STAR® qualification while using the Samsung LED 2323 LED package.

"We realize the importance ENERGY STAR certification plays in regards to utility rebates and are pleased to offer LM80 data to our customers as a guide for expected lumen maintenance," stated Kevin Kim, CMO, VP Samsung LED. "This data along with other stringent quality assurance measures reinforces Samsung LED's commitment to quality, high performing products across all product platforms and our mission of becoming the number one LED light source company in the world," concluded Mr. Kim.

Samsung LED's mid-power LED (2323 package) has an extremely high efficacy of 120lm/W in cool white and a micro size footprint of 2.3mm x 2.3mm allowing it to be used in a wide variety of architectural, commercial and residential LED lighting applications. The 2323 LED package is currently being used in LED down light, LED lamp, LED Flat panel and LED Tube products around the world.

In addition to the 2323 package LM80 results, Samsung LED is also nearing 6,000 hours of LM80 test data on additional mid and high power LED packages. "Samsung LED is focused on delivering a comprehensive portfolio of best in class lighting grade LEDs. We understand the high level of support and product performance required as a lighting grade LED manufacturer as we continue to invest in growing our business. It's about providing the products and tools to help make our customers successful," Kevin Kim concluded.

Samsung LED previously announced that it became an EPA-Recognized Certification Body by obtaining ISO 17025 accreditation from the Korea Laboratory Accreditation Scheme (KOLAS).This accreditation allows Samsung LED to conduct independent 3rd party IES LM79, IES LM80 and ENERGY STAR® program qualification testing. This accreditation illustrates Samsung LED's ability to not only create quality products but also independently test these products improving time to market and product reliability.
