|Publication Date:||1 May 2015|
|ICS Code (Fluorescent lamps. Discharge lamps):||29.140.30|
This International Standard specifies the safety and interchangeability requirements, together with the test methods and conditions required to show compliance of tubular fluorescent lamps with integrated means for controlling starting and stable operation (self-ballasted fluorescent lamps).
These lamps are intended for domestic and similar general lighting purposes, having a rated voltage of 50 V to 250 V, having a rated frequency of 50 Hz or 60Hz and having IEC 60061-1 compliant caps.
For a cap-holder system not specifically mentioned in this standard, the relevant information on safety related tests provided by the manufacturer will apply.
The requirements of this standard relate only to type testing.
Recommendations for whole product testing or batch testing are given in Annex A.
This part of the standard covers photobiological safety according to IEC 62471 and IEC TR 62471-2. Blue light and infrared hazards are below the level which requires marking.
