NEMA LE 5
Procedure for Determining Luminaire Efficacy Ratings for Fluorescent Luminaires
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
Establishes a luminaire efficacy rating based on rated lumens per watt and organizes luminaires into categories that will reasonably represent the characteristics of high-volume luminaires. Serves as the basis for the National Voluntary Information and Rating Program for widely used luminaires.
When rating a fixture in accordance with EPAct 1992, use this standard. For other purposes, see NEMA LE 6, a newer standard for luminaire efficacy that supersedes the LE 5 series.
