This Technical Specification applies to portable solar photovoltaic lanterns (portable PV lantern). This specification is independent of the technology used to provide the light.
The tests provided in this specification are able to help the project implementer to discriminate easily the most appropriate product within some different market offer and choose among them those which match the requirements expressed in the GS of the electrification project (see IEC/TS 62257-3).
The specification also provides provisions of regulations and installation conditions to be complied with in order to ensure the life and proper operation of the selected lantern as well as the safety of people living in proximity to the installation.
This technical specification does not replace any existing IEC standard.
