Introducing the LIA 3rd Party Gonio Photometry Scheme

The LIA has created a revolutionary Gonio photometry luminaire testing scheme for lighting manufacturers looking to offer efficient 3rd party certified luminaire performance testing together with our partners Acal BFi or Pro-Lite.

This ground-breaking scheme will radically speed up the product testing process, whilst providing clients peace of mind when it comes to validating photometric measurements such as Lumens per Watt and related performance claims.

Lighting companies that have a requirement for photometry testing, are aware of the costs and time involved. The LIA Gonio Photometry Scheme gives you control and puts both the product development and final evaluation process literally in your hands.

The Scheme is built around the class-leading Viso Systems LabSpion goniometer. This cutting-edge technology eliminates the need for a traditional goniometer and/or an integrating sphere and allows you to perform these tests quickly and accurately in manufacturers’ premises without the requirement for a large dedicated dark room.

Participants will have the ability to scan light sources and luminaires quickly and easily, creating quality, easy to understand light measurement data. The equipment can produce data files in formats such as ies & ltd for use in lighting design software as well as cdl format for horticultural lighting purposes.

Full photometric scans can take from as little as two minutes and once ready, the data is sent securely via a dedicated cloud server to the LIA Laboratory for validation. The LIA Laboratory will then be able to issue third-party reports without the need for product samples to be transported around the country or the world.

The Viso Systems LabSpion goniometer is also able to assist with product development. Making it possible to measure prototypes as often or as much as desired before finally submitting data for approval by the LIA Laboratory.

Various financing or purchasing options exist which typically amount to less than the cost of other 3rd party testing and/or the upkeep of own photometric equipment.

Initial sign up, includes installation and full training of the Viso Systems LabSpion goniometer and third-party photometric reports. During this period, users are visited annually by a representative from the LIA Laboratory who will assess the equipment, update staff as well as offer advice and support to ensure measurements are made correctly.

Acal BFi are highly respected experts in their field, providing a unique combination of leading-edge technologies and custom solutions. Pro-Lite is a well-established company specialising in the supply of light measurement equipment, including goniophotometers, integrating spheres, illuminance photometers and spectroradiometers. The expertise of the UK distributor partners, together with the international reputation of the LIA Laboratory and the Viso Systems LabSpion goniometer, makes a perfect balance of technology, testing and development.

"Through this partnership, we have created an innovative solution for the lighting industry. This scheme not only makes the measurement of any light source easier than ever before but also cost-effective.” Steve Davies, LIA CEO
