Flicker and LED Light Tube Reviewed by IEEE Group

An IEEE standards working group has produced a report looking at the health effects of flicker in LED tube strip lighting. The report,which is open for public comment, looks at ergonomics, biological attributes, potential health effects, and methods in which some LED lighting may introduce flicker.Brad Lehman, who chairs the P1789 working group, says the document is a survey report and gives no recommended practices or standards. “Its intent is to educate stakeholders on flicker with applications in flexible LED tube lighting as per the request of several government agencies,” he says The EPA recently revised the requirement for LED operating frequency in the Energy Star criteria for Integral LED light tube, changing it from 150 Hz to 120 Hz after input from interested parties. flicker-and-led-light-tube-reviewed-by-ieee-group-20150518
