BS EN 60598-2-21:2015

Luminaires. Particular requirements. Rope lights

Status : Current   Published : January 2015



This part of IEC 60598 specifies requirements for rope lights (sealed lighting chains) fitted with non-replaceable series- or parallel- or a combination of series/parallel-connected light sources for use either indoors or outdoors on supply voltages not exceeding 250 V.


In some countries the term “sealed lighting chain” is used instead of "rope light".


For products where the rope light is fixed to a frame or the like as ornaments like Santa Claus, snowman and similar, relevant clauses of IEC 60598‑2‑4 and/or IEC 60598‑2‑7 can also apply.

Rope lights provided with, fixed or detachable, extra attachments of different kinds, e.g. ornamental element in temporary decorative configurations due to festivals, celebrations, etc. or in two or three dimensional reproductions of persons or animals (real or imaginary) are considered to be covered by this standard.
