Our products are ETL listed. The ETL Listed Mark is an alternative to UL listed marks. Like UL, ETL “demonstrates compliance to the requirements of widely accepted product safety standards” and both are accredited by the Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (which is part of OSHA) to test to these standards. In passing ETL tests, Illumitex products are certified to meet rigorous standards for electrical safety and electromagnetic emissions.
ETL Testing Laboratories has been conducting electrical performance and reliability tests since 1896. Intertek Testing Services (ITS) acquired ETL from Inchcape in 1996. ITS is recognized by OSHA as a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL), just as Underwriters Laboratories (UL), Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and several other independent organizations are recognized.
ITS tests products according to nearly 200 safety and performance standards. The ETL Listed Mark and C-ETL Listed Mark are accepted throughout the United States and Canada when denoting compliance with nationally recognized standards such as ANSI, IEC, UL, and CSA.
This certification mark indicates that the product has been tested to and has met the minimum requirements of a widely recognized (consensus) U.S. product safety standard, that the manufacturing site has been audited, and that the applicant has agreed to a program of periodic factory follow-up inspections to verify continued conformance.
Almost all Illumitex LEDs are IP66 rated, meaning they are dust-tight and water-tight at the LED package level. Because they can be washed down along with everything else in a food-processing environment, they are safe and efficient additions to this type of setting. In an indoor growing situation, Illumitex IP66 rated LED horticulture lights are equally safe from irrigation dampness.
illumitex offers a 5-year limited warranty on our LED light fixtures to the original purchaser with a valid receipt.
Illumitex products absolutely work in cold environments. Illumitex LED luminaires are the perfect solution for a broad range of industrial applications, including cold storage, freezer and cold food processing. While fluorescent and other technologies can be adversely affected by cold temperatures, this is not an issue with LED lights. LEDs love the cold.
Illumitex's patented LED package technology offers perfect edge-to-edge color uniformity. Illumitex LEDs emit light directly from the die in a uniform and precise beam and our die-level optical integration means there's no need for large, inefficient secondary optics. We deliver the highest center beam candle power (CBCP) and deliver more uniform light to the intended target than any other LED and optical system on the market.
Illumitex LED lighting products are sold through stocking distribution or through select hydroponic and indoor gardening centers.
Illumitex LED Lighting products are designed to last for tens of thousands of hours — many times the life of a typical incandescent bulb and 5 times the lifetime of an average compact fluorescent lamp (CFL). Incredible longevity means that you might never change another light again, and at the very least, you'll have significantly lower maintenance and labor expenses. In addition, Illumitex offers simple retrofit solutions, so converting from old technology to LED is easy.
LEDs offer many advantages over legacy light sources, including extreme durability and high efficacy. Their superior lifespan, when compared to other lighting types, means their required maintenance and need for replacement is great reduced. This means LED lights offer great maintenance savings, energy savings and environmental sustainability. LED lights can offer greater optical control, instant on/off, dimming, and reduced rate of lumen depreciation. LEDs also produce a significantly smaller amount of heat than traditional HID lights.
