Nightowl Stage Lighting fixtures are certified by:
RoHS: Any RoHS compliant component is tested for the presence of Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd), Mercury (Hg), Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr), Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), and Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE). For Cadmium and Hexavalent chromium, there must be less than 0.01% of the substance by weight at raw homogeneous materials level. For Lead, PBB, and PBDE, there must be no more than 0.1% of the material, when calculated by weight at raw homogeneous materials. Any RoHS compliant component must have 100 ppm or less of mercury and the mercury must not have been intentionally added to the component.
FCC: The FCC Declaration of Conformity or the FCC label or the FCC mark is a certification mark employed on electronic products manufactured or sold in the United States which certifies that the electromagnetic interference from the device is under limits approved by the Federal Communications Commission.
CE: The European Commission describes the CE mark as a "passport" that allows manufacturers to circulate industrial products freely within the internal market of the EU. The CE mark certifies that the products have met EU health, safety and environmental requirements that ensure consumer and workplace safety. All manufacturers in the EU and abroad must affix the CE mark to those products covered by the "New Approach" directives in order to market their products in Europe. Once a product receives the CE mark, it can be marketed throughout the EU without undergoing further product modification.
Nightowl Stage Lighting fixtures are NOT certified by:
UL: If a product carries this mark, Underwriters Laboratories found that samples of this product met UL's safety requirements. At the current time NIghtowl products are not UL certified for the following reasons:
When and if UL testing becomes feasible, based on market conditions, we will reconsider our position.
Quality Assurance Testing:
10 Point Inspection of Every Fixture:
Design and Random Sample Testing: (Varies by model)
Liquid Ingress Protection: A fixture with an IP rating of 65 is protected against multi-directional, low-pressure water jets. In order to pass testing and achieve an IP65 rating, fixtures must be able to withstand water projected by a 0.25-inch nozzle. To achieve satisfactory results, this test must be run for a minimum of fifteen minutes, with the water source placed three yards from the fixture. Additionally, the water pressure must be 30 kPa with a water volume of 3.3 gallons per minute.
Solid Particle Protection: A fixture with an IP rating of 65 is protected against all dust particulate sizes. In order to pass testing and achieve an IP65 rating, fixtures must be able to prevent any ingress of dust sufficient to cause damage to the fixture.
An enclosure that can meet the preceding two requirements is IP65 Testing compliant.
