Organization: CEI
Publication Date: 1 April 2015
Status: active
Page Count: 412
ICS Code (Luminaires): 29.140.40
scope:

This Part 1 of IEC 60598 specifies general requirements for luminaires, incorporating electric light sources for operation from supply voltages up to 1 000 V. The requirements and related tests of this standard cover: classification, marking, mechanical construction, electrical construction and photobiological safety.

Each section of this Part 1 is read in conjunction with this Section 0 and with other relevant sections to which reference is made.

Each part of IEC 60598-2 details requirements for a particular type of luminaire or group of luminaires on supply voltages not exceeding 1 000 V. These parts are published separately for ease of revision and additional sections will be added as and when a need for them is recognized.

The presentation of photometric data for luminaires is under consideration by the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) and is not, therefore, included in this Part 1.

Requirements are included in this Part 1 for luminaires incorporating ignitors with nominal peak values of the voltage pulse not exceeding those of Table 11.2. The requirements apply to luminaires with ignitors built into ballasts and to luminaires with ignitors separate from ballasts. For luminaires with ignitors built into lamps, the requirements are under consideration.

Requirements for semi-luminaires are included in this Part 1.

In general, this Part 1 covers safety requirements for luminaires. The object of this Part 1 is to provide a set of requirements and tests which are considered to be generally applicable to most types of luminaires and which can be called up as required by the detail specifications of IEC 60598-2. This Part 1 is thus not regarded as a specification in itself for any type of luminaire, and its provisions apply only to particular types of luminaires to the extent determined by the appropriate part of IEC 60598-2.

The parts of IEC 60598-2, in making reference to any of the sections of Part 1, specify the extent to which that section is applicable and the order in which the tests are to be performed; they also include additional requirements as necessary.

The order in which the sections of Part 1 are numbered has no particular significance as the order in which their provisions apply is determined for each type of luminaire or group of luminaires by the appropriate part of IEC 60598-2. All parts of IEC 60598-2 are self-contained and therefore do not contain references to other parts of IEC 60598-2.

Where the requirements of any of the sections of Part 1 are referred to in the parts of IEC 60598-2 by the phrase "The requirements of section... of IEC 60598-1 apply", this phrase is to be interpreted as meaning that all the requirements of that section of Part 1 apply except those which are clearly inapplicable to the particular type of luminaire covered by that part of IEC 60598-2.

For explosion proof luminaires, as covered by IEC 60079, the requirements of IEC 60598 (selecting the appropriate parts 2) are applied in addition to the requirements of IEC 60079. In the event of any conflict between IEC 60598 and IEC 60079, the requirements of IEC 60079 take priority.

Attention is drawn to lamp performance standards which contain "information for luminaire design"; this should be followed for proper lamp operation; however, this standard does not require the testing of lamp performance as part of the type test approval for luminaires.

Improvements in safety to take into account the state of the art technology are incorporated in the standards with revisions and amendments on an ongoing basis. Regional standardisation bodies may include statements in their derived standards to cover products which have complied with the previous document as shown by the manufacturer or standardization body. The statements may require that for such products, the previous standard may continue to apply to production until a defined date after which the new standard shall apply.
