|Publication Date:||1 October 2013|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to lamps):||29.140.99|
This part of IEC/PAS 62816 specifies the safety requirements for tubular type external electrode fluorescent lamps for backlight unit purposes used in flat panel displays such as TVs and monitors etc., hereafter called "lamps". This PAS will be revised to include other types of lamp when a need for them is recognized.
It also specifies the method a manufacturer needs to use to show compliance with the requirements of this PAS on the basis of whole production appraisal in association with test records on finished products.
Details of a batch test procedure, which can be used to make limited assessment of batches are also given in this PAS.
NOTE Compliance with this PAS concerns only safety criteria and does not take into account the performance of cold cathode fluorescent lamps for general lighting purposes with respect to colour, starting and operational characteristics.
