Proven capability for lighting products

U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Jeremy BowcockFrom the headlights on your car to the ground lamps guiding your flight to a safe landing at the airport, lighting products play a central role in our daily lives. They must perform in severe environments and reliably integrate with larger systems. Take advantage of Elite’s comprehensive testing services and expertise to ensure that your lighting products meet qualification and regulatory requirements.

Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are gaining popularity for numerous applications due to their low power consumption and long life. But with LEDs come digital drivers and circuitry that can produce harmful electromagnetic interference. To realize their full potential, LED components must also survive the harsh environments experienced by automobiles and aircraft over the long term. Trust Elite’s experienced team and advanced test capabilities to simulate any environment and prove the reliability and performance of your lighting products.
