Full Range of Photometric, EMC and Environmental Testing

From your car’s headlights to the airport ground lamps that guide your flight to a safe landing, lighting products are central in our lives. They have to work in severe environments and integrate with larger systems. Elite’s deep expertise and comprehensive testing services ensure that your lighting products meet regulatory and qualification requirements.

Lighting Equipment Testing in One Location

Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) have seen wider use due to their low power consumption and long life. But LEDs lights require power supplies with digital circuitry that can produce harmful electromagnetic interference (EMI). LED components also must survive the harsh environments around automobiles and aircraft over the long term. Trust Elite’s experienced team and advanced test capabilities to simulate any environment and prove your lighting products’ durability and performance.

Automotive lighting provides a safety-critical function and operates in its own unique environment. Elite’s recognized expertise in Automotive EMC testing has earned the confidence of automotive lighting manufacturers and vehicle OEMs. Add Elite’s industry-leading photometric lab and you can efficiently complete testing of headlights, exterior lighting, and interior displays in one location. 

Elite offers combined EMC, Photometric, Electrical, Environmental, & Mechanical Testing in one location, covering all aspects of lighting fixtures and installations.
