Performance of self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps and ballasted adapters
|Publication Date:||1 January 2010|
This Standard specifies performance requirements and related test procedures for evaluating self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and ballasted adapters that are intended for general lighting use with 120 V, 60 Hz power and that use an E26 or larger screwbase.
This Standard does not cover CFLs designed and marketed for special-purpose applications, such as lamps designed for producing coloured light.
This Standard does not include requirements for luminaires used with CFLs.
In CSA standards, "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.
