Meaning of LED lighting standards
It has not happened to you that you have gone to buy LED lighting and you find different standards and certifications and you know nothing about it. These certifications can be useful in your product's decision-making process, as they relate to product safety, testing, warranty, durability, and other important details.
Most LED companies offer a minimum warranty of 2 years to protect against manufacturer defects and failures. Longer warranties are available depending on the product. If you experience the failure of an LED or other component not caused by negligence, abuse, unauthorized repair or disassembly, we will replace the product within the warranty period. If the same product is no longer available, a product of equal value can be replaced.
2. Hazardous Substances Restriction (RoHS): RoHS Compliant
RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances . Certain materials used in electronic and electrical products have been considered hazardous to people and the environment and should therefore be limited. In order for a product to comply with the RoHS directive, tests and documented documentation of limited or zero use of cadmium, hexavalent chromium, lead, mercury, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenyl ethers must be carried out.
3. Lifetime warranty
Few companies offer this type of lifetime warranty on a variety of products.
4. EC: Complies with European health, safety and environmental standards.
At TYD Electronics we are confident that sometimes for certain products within controlled categories, such as electrical and electronic devices, to be legally sold in the European Economic Area, they must carry an CE label, which means Conformité Européenne (European Conformity). Products with this label comply with environmental, health and safety standards established by European legislation.
At TYD Electronics we are sure that you have ever seen this logo on any device you are going to buy. This is used so that certain products within controlled categories, such as electrical and electronic devices, are legally sold in the European Economic Area, must be labeled EC, which means Conformité Européenne (European Conformity). Products with this label comply with environmental, health and safety standards established by European legislation.
5. UL Listing: Safety and Environment Certification by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) LLC
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) LLC is an independent testing agency that works to verify product safety and quality. A UL-certified label means that UL has tested the product samples and that the product meets the requirements of the Safety Standards.
6. Recognized by UL : Product Component Safety and Environmental Certification of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) LLC
Underwriters Laboratories (UL) LLC is an independent testing agency that works to verify product safety and quality. A LABEL recognized by UL ensures that a product component, such as a power supply or LED light strip, has been tested and verified as safe for use in a UL-certified product.
