Safety specifications for incandescent lamps - Part 2: Tungsten Halogen Lamps for Domestic and Similar General Lighting Purposes
|Publication Date:||1 January 1998|
|ICS Code (Incandescent lamps):||29.140.20|
There are increasing numbers of cases where tungsten halogen technology is being utilized in general lighting applications. For example, PAR-shaped lamps with tungsten halogen inner bulbs are available for use as substitutes for similar lamps with regular tungsten filaments. The primary concern is that the existing standard for general lighting incandescent lamps, IEC 432, does not adequately list safety requirements for tungsten halogen lamps. Neither does the scope of the existing standard for tungsten halogen lamps, IEC 357: 1982, Tungsten halogen lamps (non-vehicle), encompass such applications.
This part 2 of IEC 432 adds to and modifies IEC 432-1.
