Lumen Testing from Light and Motion

Light and Motion hired a company to test their lights and competitors to show how accurate the lumen ratings are.

From the Light and Motion site... Their site has individual reports for download.


We value the relationship that we have with our customers and understand that it is a relationship based on trust. Our customers trust that when they purchase a Light & Motion product that it will be solid, reliable and well-tested. These attributes are important to us as well, since many of our employees enthusiastically use what we sell. It makes sense then that we would put quite a bit of time and money into testing our own light systems—but we didn't stop there. We've also tested most of our competitor's lights. It's important for us to know that we can back up our lumen claims with hard data, but it's also important for us to know that we're comparing apples to apples with our competitors (note that many light systems from other brands don't even come CLOSE to their claimed output rating). We feel that it's also important that our customers have access to this test data, so that they can make a more informed decision when laying down their hard-earned money on a new lighting system.
As you'll see below, the test results confirm that our products deliver on our promised lumen output. The same can't always be said for some of our competitors, who many times claim substantially more output than they actually deliver.
All measurements were performed by an independent testing laboratory using calibrated instruments. All tests on Light & Motion products were performed using light systems from the current 2009 model year. All tests on competitors products are performed on the latest publicly available models unless otherwise noted.
