The overview table is explained on the OliNo website. Please note that this overview table makes use of calculations, use this data with care as explained on the OliNo site. E (lux) values are not accurate, when within 5 x 111 mm ≈ 550 mm. Within this distance from the lamp, the measured lux values willl be less than the computed values in this overview as the measurements are then within the near field of the lamp.
The light diagram giving the radiation pattern.
It indicates the luminous intensity around the light bulb. The directions C90-C270 and C0-C180 give almost exactly the same result.
Illuminance Ev at 1 m distance, or luminous intensity Iv
Herewith the plot of the averaged luminous intensity Iv as a function of the inclination angle with the light bulb.
The radiation pattern of the light bulb.
This radiation pattern is the average of the light output of the light diagram given earlier. Also, in this graph the luminous intensity is given in Cd.
These averaged values are used (later) to compute the lumen output.
Intensity data of every measured turn angle at each inclination angle.
This plot shows per inclination angle the intensity measurement results for each turn angle at that inclination angle. There normally are differences in illuminance values for different turn angles. However for further calculations the averaged values will be used.
When using the average values per inclination angle, the beam angle can be computed, being 119-121º.
With the averaged illuminance data at 1 m distance, taken from the graph showing the averaged radiation pattern, it is possible to compute the luminous flux.
The result of this computation for this light spot is a luminous flux of 862 Lm.
The luminous flux being 862 Lm, and the power of the light bulb being 10.4 W, yields a luminous efficacy of 83 Lm/W.
A power factor of 0.57 means that for every 1 kWh net power consumed, a reactive component of 1.4 kVAr was needed.

Of this light bulb the voltage across ad the resulting current through it are measured and graphed. See the OliNo site how this is obtained.
Voltage across and current through the lightbulb
This waveforms have been checked on requirements posed by the norm IEC 61000-3-2:2006 (including up to A2:2009). See also the explanation on the OliNo website.
Harmonics in in the current waveform and checked against IEC61000-3-2:2006
There are no limits for the harmonics for led lighting equipment <= 25 W.
The Total Harmonic Distortion of the current is computed as 129 %.
Temperature image (overview) of the light bulb
Tape is used to be able to use a known emissivity.
|status lamp||> 2 hours on|
|ambient temperature||24 deg C|
|reflected background temperature||24 deg C|
|measurement distance||0.30 m|
|NETD (thermal sensitivity)||100 mK|
(1) The emissivity is set at 0.95 which is close to the value of the masking tape used.
The tube on its hotttest place is between the leds, being 63 deg C. This area has alow heat capacity; touching it does not lead to burned fingers.
The lamp’s base gets a bit less hot.
The spectral power distribution of this light bulb, energies on y-axis valid at 1 m distance.
The measured color temperature is about 7250 K which is cold white.
This color temperature is measured straight underneath the light bulb. Below a graph showing the color temperature for different inclination angles.
Color temperature as a function of inclination angle.
The measurement of CCT is measured for inclination angles up to 85º, beyond the illuminance values get very low (< 5 lux).
The beam angle is maximally 121º, meaning a 60.5º inclination angle. In this area the majority of the light is present. The variation in correlated color temperature in this area is about 10 %.
To make a statement how well the light of this light bulb is for growing plants, the PAR-area needs to be determined. See the OliNo website how this all is determined and the explanation of the graph.
The photon spectrum, then the sensitivity curve and as result the final PAR spectrum of the light of this light bulb
The PAR efficiency is 66 % (valid for the PAR wave length range of 400 – 700 nm). So maximally 66 % of the total of photons in the light is effectively used by the average plant (since the plant might not take 100 % of the photons at the frequency where its relative sensitivity is 100 %).
The S/P ratio and measurement is explained on the OliNo website. Here the results are given.
The S/P ratio is 2.2.
More info on S/P ratio can be found on the OliNo website.
The chromaticity space and the position of the lamp’s color coordinates in it.
The light coming from this lamp on top of the Planckian Locus (the black path in the graph).
Its coordinates are x=0.3028 and y=0.3144.
Herewith the image showing the CRI as well as how well different colors are represented (rendered). The higher the number, the better the resemblance with the color when a black body radiator would have been used (the sun, or an incandescent lamp). Practical information and also some critics about the CRI can be found on the OliNo website.
Each color has an index Rx, and the first 8 indexes (R1 .. R8) are averaged to compute the Ra which is equivalent to the CRI.
CRI of the light of this lightbulb.
The value of 76 is (a bit) lower than 80 which is considered a minimum value for indoor usage.
Note: the chromaticity difference is 0.0023 indicates the distance to the Planckian Locus. There is no norm yet that states what the max deviation from white light is allowed to be.
The dependency of a number of lamp parameters on the lamp voltage is determined. For this, the lamp voltage has been varied and its effect on the following light bulb parameters measured: illuminance E_v [lx], the lamppower P [W], the (Correlated) Color Temperature [K] and the luminous efficacy [Lm/W].
Lamp voltage dependencies of certain light bulb parameters, where the value at 230 V is taken as 100 %.
The illuminance and consumed power does almost not vary when the voltage is varied.
When the voltage at 230 V varies with + and – 5 V, then the illuminance varies < 1 %, so when abrupt voltage changes occur this effect is not visible in the illuminance output.
After switch on of a cold lamp, the effect of heating up of the lamp is measured on illuminance E_v [lx], color temperature CT or correlated color temperature CCT [K], the lamppower P [W] and the luminous efficacy [lm/W].
Effect of warming up on different light bulb parameters. At top the 100 % level is put at begin, and at bottom at the end.
The warm up time is about 30 minutes. During that time the illuminance decreases with ≈ 12 % and the consumed power with 5 %.
