Generate XML files automatically – ready for upload

This Video introduces a solution to generating ZIP files directly from original VISO light measurement files. The solution is part of the free Light Inspector software.
ZIP files are ready for upload to the EU EPREL database


September 1, 2021, the European regulation on lighting equipment (module, lamps, control gear and luminaires) changed. The EPREL lighting database was introduced. A QR tag on product labels will enable customers to access this product data easily. Manufacturers and importers are obliged to upload different kinds of product information: Product model description, General information incl. energy consumption, energy label, technical documentation, etc.

The existing rules under Regulation (EU) 874/2012 are repealed and replaced by new energy labeling requirements for light sources under Regulation (EU) 2019/2015, the so-called ELR (Energy Label Regulation) on the energy labeling of light sources. It was amended on December 17, 2020 by Regulation (EU) 2021/340.

Similarly, Regulation (EU) 1194/2012 is replaced by Regulation (EU) 2019/2020 called SLR (Single Lighting Regulation). This regulation covers the functional and performance requirements for light sources and control gear. It was amended on February 23, 2021 by Regulation (EU) 2021/341

Are you struggling with EPREL? All Viso measurement systems allow you to extract EPREL data via the Light Inspector software and the included EPREL zip file generator.

Viso software automatically generates your zip-files – ready for upload.

Viso offers the possibility to generate ready-to-upload EPREL files directly from any Viso light measurement. Pick a measurement, add a little data in the dialog window, and generate the zip-file with one click.

This is as easy and safe as it gets. The system even allows you to make EPREL updates. Get Viso Light Inspector  software version 6.35 (beta) or newer and try it out (works with original Viso light measurement files).

Remember that EPREL data also includes flicker information – the new PstLM and SVM metrics and requirements. Get this data with the LabFlicker accessory.
