    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    IEC 60838-1:2016 is available as IEC 60838-1:2016
    RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline
    version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to
    the previous edition.

    IEC 60838-1:2016 applies to lampholders of miscellaneous types intended for building-in (to be used with general purpose light sources, projection lamps, floodlighting lamps and street-lighting lamps with caps as listed in Annex A) and the methods of test to be used in determining the safe use of lamps in lampholders. This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition published in 2004, Amendment 1:2008 and Amendment 2:2011. This edition constitutes a technical revision. The significant technical changes in this edition with respect to the previous edition include the introduction of new or revised requirements for single and dual contact ignition voltages, steel test caps and brass test caps and an Annex E listing amended requirements/clauses which require products to be retested.
