Organization: International Electrotechnical Commission(IEC) Edition Date: 2008 1 of International Standard IEC 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 standard cover: classification, marking, mechanical construction and electrical construction.
Organization: International Electrotechnical Commission(IEC) Edition Date: 01/06/2011 The first edition for a performance PAS for LED luminaires for general lighting applications acknowledges the need for relevant tests for luminaires using this new source of electrical light, sometimes called “solid state lighting”. The publication is seen in close context with simultaneously developed and edited publication of performance standards (or PAS) for luminaires in general and for LED modules. Changes in the LED luminaires PAS will have impact on the module standards and vice versa, due to the behaviour of LED. Therefore, in the development of the present PAS, mutual consultancy of experts of both products has taken place. The provisions in the standard represent the technical knowledge of experts from the fields of the semiconductor (LED chip) industry and of those of the traditional electrical light sources and luminaires.
Organization: International Electrotechnical Commission(IEC) Edition Date: 16/06/2011 Part 1 version of this document provides information on general requirement and test for miscellaneous lamp holders. The IEC 60838-1 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 part of IEC 60838 also covers lampholders which are integral with a luminaire. It covers the requirements for the lampholder only. The technical content is therefore identical to the base edition and its amendments and has been prepared for user convenience. It bears the edition number 4.2. A vertical line in the margin shows where the base publication has been modified by amendments 1 and 2. In this edition the new requirements for creepage distances and clearances have been adopted which are currently circulated by SC34D to amend the IEC 60598 family of luminaire standards. It also includes additional requirements regarding testing of lampholders for double-ended R7s/RX7s lamps.
Organization: International Electrotechnical Commission(IEC) Edition Date: 01/04/2012 Part 2 version of this document provides information on particular requirement of connectors for LED modules
