How to Ensure Your LED Lighting Products Meet Industry Standards

Manufacturers and engineers are challenged with making sure their LED lighting products meet industry standards to pass UL, CSA, TUV, Intertek, and other specifications. This whitepaper shows how engineers and technicians can easily confirm that these products meet the necessary parameters for compliance — before being sent to testing facilities.

Toward Standardization of Low Impedance Contact CDM

The 16.6 ohm implementation of contact CDM (LICCDM) recently published in ANSI-ESD Standard Practice 5.3.3 is shown to produce waveforms of similar shape, Ifail, and Ipeak vs. Ceff dependency as JS-002. The non-monotonicity of JS-002 at low voltages is overcome using LICCDM. A path to joint standardization with air discharge testing is proposed.
