Performance of LED replacement lamps
|Publication Date:||1 January 2013|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to lamps):||29.140.99|
This Standard defines minimum energy efficiency and performance requirements for light emitting diode (LED) lamps with an ANSI or IEC standardized base that are designed to connect to a low-voltage or branch circuit via a lampholder. The criteria in this Standard apply to both integral LED lamps of nonstandard form, and to those intended to replace standard general service incandescent lamps, decorative (candelabra-style) lamps, and reflector lamps.
Note: Safety requirements for LED replacement lamps are provided in CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 250.13
In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.
Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.
Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (nonmandatory) to define their application.
