CAMBRIDGE, ON--(Marketwired - March 17, 2014) - Eco-Shift Power Corp. (OTCQB: ECOP) -
NetZero Certification is Eco-Shift Power's newly launched means of qualifying lighting products that meet exacting criteria and is a new tool for industry to make better energy and cost saving decisions. ECOP has developed rigorous protocols including all the necessary tests that all products must go through in order to attain NetZero Certification.
With a foundation in new-era LED lighting and wireless and web-enabled technologies, Eco-Shift Power is transitioning clients' decision making from old, fixed technology to the new information age.
"The robust testing criteria that ECOP and its third-party testing facilities use are unmatched in the industry and qualify new lighting products," says President Gib Wood. "ECOP's Lighting Division requires all new ballast, lamp and fixture technologies to go through these testing measures before we issue a NetZero certification for them." Gib adds, "NetZero certification provides certainty, avoids confusion and means industrial and commercial clients can improve the quality of their decision making when seeking cost savings from energy efficient lighting."
To achieve NetZero Certification ECOP's testing includes 20 tests to confirm elements such as:
- Luminous Intensity Distribution
- Average Luminance in Various Directions
- Zonal Lumens
- Measuring Spectra
- Measuring Illuminance
- Measuring Intensity
- Measuring Flux
- Measuring Reflectance and Transmittance
- Lamp Photometry
- Absolute, Relative and Substitution Photometry
- Durability or Life Cycle
Other testing criteria that ECOP uses to qualify new technologies under the NetZero certification integrates validation of elements such as beam spread at the floor from lamps hung at varying heights (up to 80ft.), dimming capability and power factor.
"In an era of new LED lighting fixtures, high potential cost savings and unclear marketing messages ECOP is providing clarity via our NetZero Certification," comments Wood "To date no other independent entity provides such thorough assessments of ballast, lamp and fixture technologies, so NetZero is a trusted certification that industry can rely on to make excellent cost and energy saving decisions."
"In defining best available technology and providing Net Zero certification ECOP drives additional energy cost savings for clients who still benefit from our uniquely consultative approach," states Wood. "When we save up to 58% in long term energy costs our clients set us apart from simple vendors, that's good sustainable business for all."
