Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 December 2009
Status: inactive
Page Count: 86
ICS Code (Electrical engineering in general): 29.020
ICS Code (Lamps and related equipment): 29.140
scope:

This International Standard applies to the assessment of lighting equipment related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields. The assessment consists of the induced current density for frequencies from 20 kHz to 10 MHz and the specific absorption rate (SAR) for frequencies from 100 kHz to 300 MHz around lighting equipment.

Included in the scope of this standard are:

- all lighting equipment for general lighting with a primary function of generating and/or distributing light intended for illumination purposes, and intended either for connection to the low voltage electricity supply or for battery operation; used indoor and/or outdoor. General lighting equipment means all industrial, residential and public and street lighting;

- lighting part for general lighting of multi-function equipment where one of the primary functions of this is illumination;

- independent auxiliaries exclusively for the use with lighting equipment.

Excluded from the scope of this standard are:

- lighting equipment for aircraft and airfields;

- lighting equipment for road vehicles; (except lighting used for the illumination of passenger compartments in public transport)

- lighting equipment for agriculture;

- lighting equipment for boats/vessels;

- photocopiers, slide projectors;

- apparatus for which the requirements of electromagnetic fields are explicitly formulated in other IEC standards;

NOTE The methods described in this standard are not suitable for comparing the fields from different lighting equipment.

This standard does not apply to built-in components for luminaires such as electronic control gear.
