Recommended Practice for Photobiological Safety for Lamps and Lamp Systems – Measurement Techniques
|Publication Date:||3 August 2000|
The ANSI/IES RP-27 series of standards applies to all electrically powered sources of optical radiation that emit in the wavelength range from 200 nm to 3,000 nm. The standards do not apply to any lasers or to those light emitting diodes used in optical fiber communication systems.
This standard is to be used by the radiometrist for guidance regarding special problems related to photobiological hazard measurements. Additionally, specific recommendations are included to provide consistency and to reduce test design time and effort.
It is impractical for this standard to teach all of the concepts or provide all experience needed to make accurate photobiological safety measurements.
