After check testing which measured an 11% lower average useful luminous flux the Megaman MM27442 was escalated to further testing. A batch of 20 samples was tested by the project.
Measurements on the higher sample size confirmed the check test finding. Despite achieving its declared energy class, measured useful luminous flux was 14% lower than claimed (against a 10% tolerance threshold). A further non-conformity was seen in the luminous intensity, as the average candela measured was only 69% of the claimed value; 1194/2012 states this must achieve at least 75% of the declaration.
MarketWatch has communicated the test findings to Megaman, but has yet to receive a response.
