Self-Ballasted Lamps for General Lighting Services - Performance Requirements
|Publication Date:||1 October 2016|
|ICS Code (Fluorescent lamps. Discharge lamps):||29.140.30|
This document specifies performance requirements together with test methods and conditions required to show compliance of self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps intended for general lighting services.
This document applies to self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps of voltages > 50 V and all power ratings with lamp caps complying with IEC 60061-1.
NOTE Some features of this document could be applicable to self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps of voltages ≤ 50 V and to other types of self-ballasted gas discharge lamps.
The requirements of this document relate only to type testing.
The performance requirements specified in this document are additional to the safety requirements specified in IEC 60968.
It can be expected that self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps, which comply with this document, will start and operate satisfactorily at normal conditions (voltages between 92 % and 106 % of rated supply voltage, ambient air temperature of between -10 °C and 40 °C and in a luminaire complying with IEC 60598-1).
