Are Your LED Lights Safe? Wider Use of Brighter LED Lights Increases Importance of IEC62471


Smart Vision Lights' article on LED light safety and the importance of being IEC62471 compliant, written by SVL's director of engineering Matt Pinter, was recently featured in Quality Magazine's January 2015 issue. Manufacturers of products containing LEDs know that governments around the world require their products to be tested to guarantee that UV and IR light output does not exceed safety levels outlined in international standard IEC62471. What they may not know is that products bearing CE, UL, CCC, or other national marks that do not have documented proof of IEC62471 compliance can be confiscated, even from customer installations; excluded from sale within the country; and the manufacturer fined. Read the full article
