Scope:

This part of IEC 61995 applies to devices for the connection of luminaires (DCL) intended for household and similar purposes, for the electrical connection of fixed luminaires of class I or class II to final circuits rated at not more than 16 A without providing a mechanical support for the luminaire. DCLs are intended for use according to their IP rating as specified in IEC 60529.

Outlets have an earthing contact and a rated current of 6 A. Plugs have a rated current of 6 A.

The rated voltage is 125 V or 250 V at 50/60 Hz.

NOTE 1 This standard does not cover integrated DCL-plugs (under consideration). This standard can also be applied to types other than those with standardised interface.

NOTE 2 In the following countries only types with a standardised interface according to IEC 61995-2 (under consideration) are allowed: IT.

DCL plugs and DCL outlets complying with this standard are suitable for use under the following conditions:

– an ambient temperature not normally exceeding 25 °C, but occasionally reaching 35 °C; NOTE 3 The effect of the heat generated by the luminaire may affect the ambient temperature local to the DCL.

– a temperature not exceeding 70 °C at the terminals of the DCL outlet including the effect of heat generated by the luminaire and the passage of current.

NOTE 4 The requirements and tests of this standard may also be used as a guide when testing DCL's which have different interface configurations or ratings.
