Lamps & Luminaires

The Lamps & Luminaires industry is continue to be the fastest developing & growing Industry across the globe where substantial and significant growth has taken place during the past 5-8 yrs. Due to that, particularly GLS lamps are on the verge of extinction replaced by CFLs. The tube lights (TFLs) are also passing through the transition stage where slimmest version T-5 has substituted the fatter T-8 and T-12 category. Further these category is fast being substituted by the long-lasting & more energy efficient LED Tube light.

Now latest, more compact, safe as well highly durable & efficient LED lightings especially retrofitting/integrated LED lamps, Street Lights, down-lighters and Luminaires have fast replaced the regularly used Lamps/lighting including CFLs and commercial lightings that also cover flood lights etc. Thus, testing & research support from the credible test labs have become equally challenging to match the current radical change and meet the growing demand of Luminaires Industry for the latest facilities to meet the current requirement of National & International standards.

In India, BTHPL has also kept pace with the development of technology and sustained with the creation & augmentation on test facility that covers various Luminaires including TFLs, CFLs, all LED lightings(Bulbs, Street & Flood Lights, Hand Lamps, Emergency Lamps, Hospital Lights) as well as commercial lightings for Safety & Quality performance tests. The test far as per IS & IEC specifications to cater to the Industry’s requirements. The latest installed test facility is accredited by NABL for all the LED Lamps & Luminaires covering LM-79 & LM-80 conducted through sophisticated & accurate C-Type Goniophotometer as well as high-tech instrument to conduct performance tests.
