Product Design & Development
Ardron-Mackie has invested heavily in R&D facilities, which include an on-site Lighting Lab featuring a 2.0-meter Spektron coated integrating sphere. The sphere works hand-in-hand with an Accurate Array Spectroradiometer to analyze the quality and performance of all Ardron-Mackie’s in-house designed light engines.
The lab equipment allows us to measure all critical parameters including, but not limited to: Lumens, Watts, Color rendering, Efficacy, Efficiency, Color temperature, Power factor, Total harmonic distortion, and LM79 parameters.
All equipment is certified and calibrated to NIST standards (National Institute of Standards and Technology).
In addition, the lab features a state-of-the-art 3D printing station allowing for rapid development of next-generation products.
In-house Thermal Imaging equipment allows for the validation of electronic and mechanical designs.
Included in the lab is a host of various high-tech testing equipment ensuring all Ardron-Mackie products are rigorously tested prior to entering the production phase.
