Test Methods for LED Plant Grow Lights

The aging test refers to a test process that simulates the various factors that affect the use of the product involved in the actual process and conducts the test process to strengthen the corresponding conditions. The most common is the aging test for plastics, the main methods are light aging, damp heat aging and hot air aging.


LED plant grow lights are electronic and electrical products, and their aging test is different from the aging of plastic materials. The most important thing in the use of LED plant grow lights is to allow them to be used efficiently and normally, and the main factors that affect their normal use are dead light rate, heat dissipation, high efficiency and stability of luminescence, etc. The main test methods are all done by increasing the voltage and current.


1. LED plant grow light dead light rate test, generally speaking, after the LED plant grow light is produced into a finished product, there is no problem in the studio under the rated voltage and current, but a short-term high voltage will inevitably occur during use. Or it is a sudden power failure. To ensure that the lamp can still work normally after this common situation occurs, you need to do a test before the LED plant grow light leaves the factory to detect whether the power supply configuration is qualified, the welding position is firm, and the assembled wire can withstand ability to reach a certain standard.


2. The heat dissipation test of LED plant grow light; the heat dissipation performance of the LED plant grow light is directly related to its service life and the luminous efficiency of the lamp beads. The aging test method is to make LED plant grow light at its maximum temperature within a certain period of time, and its internal structure will not be destroyed, and within a certain period of time, the temperature of each part of the LED plant grow light will not increase with the prolonged high intensity working time.


3. LED plant grow light is efficient and stable. The main influencing factor is the rectification and voltage division capability of the internal power supply. As long as the quality of the power supply is excellent, the LED plant grow light generally will ensure high efficiency and normal light emission within its rated service life. And the general power supply will be equipped with an over-voltage automatic power-off device, which will not have a serious impact on the lamp beads, but it does not rule out the possibility of LED plant grow light chip leaks during the packaging process. Therefore, a flashing test must be carried out to ensure stable, normal and efficient operation.


Generally speaking, the aging test is to test the endurance of various situations that may be encountered in its actual application, and the difference just lays in the test methods and the test process.
