When it is time to test your lighting product for compliance with customer and regulatory requirements, preparation is the key to an efficient and successful test program. Please join us for our 1-day Photometery Workshop focused on test planning and preparation - including special considerations for flashing lights. Our guest instructor is Bob Czajkowski, chairperson of the SAE Committee on Emergency Warning Lights and Devices, who brings decades of experience designing and testing flashing lights as well as developing SAE's testing standards. Elite's lead photometric test engineer, Jessica Kramer, will provide addtional instruction and laboratory demonstrations for steady lights.

Attendees will learn about evaluating technical requirements to create a test plan, defining measurements and success criteria, preparing test items, and choosing a test facility. This is a valuable opportunity for engineers and program managers to learn what it takes to confidently plan and execute a photometric test program to meet your requirements.

Classroom instruction will take place in Elite's North Annex Training Room and will be followed by lab demonstrations in our adjacent Photometric Test Laboratory, equipped with a 2-meter Integrating Sphere measurement system, Type A Goniophotometry system with 64 ft test distance, and support equipment. 

Bob Czajkowski has been a member of SAE since 2002 and has served as the chairperson of the Emergency Warning Lights and Devices committee since 2010. He is a graduate of the Illinois Institute of Technology where he majored in mechanical engineering. He is the recipient of 12 US patents. For the majority of his career he has been involved in the design and measurement of emergency vehicle warning lights and is currently Principle Mechanical Engineer at Federal Signal in University Park, IL.
