Abstract: Indian Standard (IS 16102-2: 2017), stipulates test procedures to categorize the self-ballasted LED lamps. These procedures include life test and performance test. At present, life test procedure of LED lamps is being carried with manual supervision, camera observation and a digital timer. This paper proposes a new method to test the life of lamp based on automation. This paper also discusses about current sensing methods. The developed system will give LED lamp life. This entire test process is monitored and controlled using a Graphical User Interface which shows lamp status, life of lamp in hours, remaining time of test and test result. Developed system will minimize the human errors, removes manual supervision and gives accurate test results.
