ENEC and ENEC+ Certifications: Guarantee of Safety and Quality in Lighting
When we look for road, office or industrial lighting, one of the key factors we look at is safety and quality. ENEC and ENEC+ certifications are an important tool that helps manufacturers confirm these very aspects of their products. In this article, we take a look at these certifications and how they benefit users and lighting manufacturers.
Our product categories from ENEC and ENEC+:
ENEC certification: guarantee of safety
ENEC certification is a symbol of safety and compliance with standards for luminaires. It is confirmation that the product meets strict safety requirements and compliance with the relevant standards.
The main points worth highlighting are:
ENEC certification confirms that the luminaire is safe to use, poses no fire or electrical hazard and complies with the general standard EN 60598-1, which covers general requirements for lighting.
2. Testing in an accredited laboratory:
The manufacturer must have its products tested in a laboratory that has the appropriate accreditations. This ensures independence and objectivity in the certification process.
3. Supervision by the manufacturer:
Once a manufacturer is ENEC certified, it is under constant surveillance, which means that its products are regularly checked to ensure compliance with the certification. This guarantees serialisation and lasting quality.
ENEC+ certification: Confirmation of the quality of the lighting performance
The ENEC+ certification goes a step further and confirms the quality of the luminaire's claimed functional performance.
This includes issues such as:
ENEC+ ensures that the product is durable and does not wear out quickly. This is important, especially for luminaires that are exposed to intensive use.
2. Luminous efficiency:
ENEC+ certification confirms that the luminaire is efficient in emitting light, resulting in energy savings and lighting performance.
3. Distribution of light:
Control of light distribution is key, especially in public lighting, to ensure uniform and effective lighting of the area.
4. Power supply parameters:
ENEC+ confirms that the power supply parameters, such as voltage and current, are in accordance with the manufacturer's declarations.
5. Luminous flux:
This certification also includes confirmation of the declared luminous flux, which is crucial for estimating the luminaire's brightness.
ENEC and ENEC+ certifications provide reassurance for both manufacturers and users of LED lighting. For manufacturers, they are proof of the quality of their products and compliance with the highest safety and quality standards. For users, these certificates are a guarantee that they are choosing lighting that is not only safe, but also meets their expectations in terms of functionality and durability. It is therefore worth paying attention to ENEC and ENEC+ certifications when choosing LED lighting.
