This part of IEC 60747 specifies the terminology, the essential ratings and characteristics, the measuring methods and the quality evaluations of light emitting diodes (LEDs) for general industrial applications such as signals, controllers, sensors, etc. LEDs for lighting applications are out of the scope of this part of IEC 60747.
The types of LED are divided into the following five classes:
a) LED package;
b) LED flat illuminator;
c) LED numeric display and alpha-numeric display;
d) LED dot-matrix display;
e) I LED (infrared-emitting diode).
LEDs with a heat spreader or having a terminal geometry that performs the function of a heat spreader are within the scope of this part of IEC 60747.
An integration of LEDs and controlgears, integrated LED modules, semi-integrated LED modules, integrated LED lamps or semi-integrated LED lamps, are out of the scope of this part of IEC 60747.
