LM-80 Test Equipment

Complete Hardware and Software Solutions for LM-80 Laboratory Testing

LM-80 BoardLM-80 Active Control Lifetime Test Chamber

Orb Optronix’ LM-80 Optical Test System is an Electrical-Thermal-Optical (ETO) Measurement System customized for IES LM-80 measurement applications. Utilizing a version of Orb’s LED characterization and measurement software, Nexus Runsafe, specifically written for LM-80 measurement needs, the system is able to provide powerful data collection of LED characteristics for accurate Lifetime Lumen Maintenance reporting.

The LM-80 Optical Test System includes an integrating sphere, Orb Optronix ETO-TEC-100 Controller, Orb Optronix SP-75 spectrometer, power supply, and Nexus Runsafe LM-80 software. SpectralSuite supports many popular models of spectrometers and power supplies, including Keithley 2400 and 2600 series Source Meters, specific Agilent models, and others. At your request, we can determine if you have compatible devices already available in your lab.

Supported Power Supplies

SP-75 Spectrometer
The SP-75 offers the highest sensitivity, low noise, and fine optical resolution. The SP-75’s sensitivity makes it ideally suited for high-speed, triggered single pulse or PWM calibrated spectral radiant flux measurements.

Nexus Runsafe supports many other spectrometer brands, including Gamma Scientific, Avantes, Ocean Optics, and LabSphere.

LM-80 Thermal Platforms
Orb’s Thermal Platforms are a software controlled, fully-integrated solution for electrical and temperature control of LED sources over time. Devices under test are controlled and monitored to the temperature and electrical conditions defined by the user at test setup.

Orb’s third-generation thermal platform integrates previous design innovations into a compact, effective solution. Our thermal platforms work with our LM-80 Electrical - Thermal Management System to produce valuable, accurate data sets on for each LED on each load board being managed. Each thermal platform connected to the system has individualized controls that allow for fine tuning of temperature parameters for each load board under test.
