    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes performance requirements for high-pressure sodium vapour lamps for general lighting purposes which comply with the safety requirements of IEC 62035.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This International Standard specifies performance requirements for high-pressure sodium vapour lamps for general lighting purposes which comply with the safety requirements of IEC 62035.

    For some of the requirements given in this standard, reference is made to “the relevant lamp data sheet”. For some lamps these data sheets are contained in this standard. For other lamps, falling under the scope of this standard, the relevant data are supplied by the lamp manufacturer or responsible vendor.

    The requirements of this standard relate only to type testing.

    The requirements dealing with the lamp starting test and associated information for ballast/ignitor design are different depending on the practice of the country in which the lamp type was originally developed.

    NOTE The requirements and tolerances permitted by this standard correspond to testing of a type test sample submitted by the manufacturer for that purpose. In principle, this type test sample should consist of units having characteristics typical of the manufacturer’s production and being as close to the production centre point values as possible.

    It may be expected with the tolerances given in the standard that product manufactured in accordance with the type test sample will comply with the standard for the majority of production. Due to the production spread however, it is inevitable that there will sometimes be products outside the specified tolerances. For guidance on sampling plans and procedures for inspection by attributes, see IEC 60410.

    Z1 Overall statement

    Where a Commission Regulation specifies limits for parameters these limits shall be used instead of the limits specified in this standard.
