    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Covers general requirements for the classification and marking of luminaires and for their mechanical and electrical construction, together with related tests. Applicable to luminaires for use with tungsten filaments, tubular fluorescent and other discharge lamps on supply voltages not exceeding 1000V. Includes the following sections: classification of luminaires; external and internal wiring; protection against electric shock; insulation resistance and electric strength. Also includes definitions, diagrams and annexes.
