|ICS Code (Exterior building lighting):||91.160.20|
The particular requirements of this part of IEC 60364 apply to the selection and erection of luminaires and lighting installations forming part of an outdoor fixed installation.
The origin of the external lighting installation is the supply delivery point of electrical energy by the supply authority or the origin of the circuit supplying the external lighting installation exclusively.
The requirements apply to, for example, lighting installations for roads, parks, gardens, places open to the public, sporting areas, illumination of monuments, floodlighting, telephone kiosks, bus shelters, advertising panels, town plans and road signs.
The requirements do not apply to:
- public street-lighting installations which are part of the public power grid;
- temporary festoon lighting;
- road traffic signal systems;
- luminaires which are fixed to the outside of a building and are supplied directly from the internal wiring of that building.
For lighting installations for swimming pools and fountains, see IEC 60364-7-702.
