Luminaires - Part 1: General requirements and tests

Executive summary

General requirements and tests for luminaires.

Abstract

This Part of EN 60598 specifies general requirements for luminaires, incorporating electric light sources for operation from supply voltages up to 1 000 V. The requirements and related tests of this European Standard cover classification, marking, mechanical construction and electrical construction.

Requirements are included in this standard for luminaires incorporating ignitors with nominal peak values of the voltage pulse. The requirements apply to luminaires with ignitors built into ballasts and to luminaires with ignitors separate from ballasts.

In this standard requirements for semi-luminaires are included. This standard provides a set of requirements and tests which are considered to be generally applicable to most types of luminaires and which can be called up as required by the detail specifications of IEC 60598-2.

Attention is drawn to the fact that this Part 1 of the series covers aspects of safety (electrical, thermal and mechanical) and to lamp performance standards which contain “information for luminaire design”; this should be followed for proper lamp operation; however, this standard does not require the testing of lamps performance as part of the type test approval for luminaires.
