HONOURTEK controls the specifications of LED and phosphor specifications carefully to provide color rendering suitable for lighting tasks.

When evaluating color rendering for LED solutions, it’s important to know that there are 15 different test-color samples, which are used by international color standard societies. These samples provide a complete picture of color rendering. It’s typical to evaluate or report only the first 8 of the 15 samples; this is often presented as Ra. However, this leave out saturated and skin tone colors and can lead to an inaccurate evaluation of a light source.

HONOURTEK evaluates all 15 reference samples for its Vigour Series®, Warmer Series™ and Standard Series COBs — providing a complete understanding of CRI with respect to quality of light. In the case of our Warmer Series™ COBs, the results for the deep red R9 and other samples put these COBs on par with halogen lamps.
