1.Lighting Safety Test
In the safety standards of luminaire products, it is divided into two major standards: IEC and ANSI/UL&CSA.
2.IEC standard system
The IEC standards are currently mainly used in most countries such as Europe, Australia, Asia Pacific, etc., and are converted or equivalent to national or regional standards such as EN, AS/NZS, and GB.
|Product Standards||Related Requirements|
Part 1: General requirements for luminaires
Part 2: Special requirements (additional requirements for more than 20 types of lamps, such as fixed, Portable, light string, emergency light, etc.)
|Ballasts, transformers, drives and other light control devices: EN61347||
Part 1: General requirements for safety requirements for light control devices
Part 2: Supplementary requirements for electronic or magnetic ballasts for tungsten, fluorescent, discharge, neon, etc.
|Energy-saving light source: EN60968||-|
|LED light source products and LED drivers||Follow the safety standards of each finished product or part, add IEC/EN62031 standard for LED modules, and add IEC62560 standard for LED light source products.|
2.1.ANSI/UL&CSA Standard System
The ANSI/UL&CSA standard system is very different from the IEC (EN, AS/NZS, GB) standard system. The North American system has different standard numbers for products, and the product standards have become numerous.
Including UL1598, UL 153, UL 1573, UL 1574, UL 962, UL 1786, UL924, UL1993, UL588, UL935, UL1029, UL1012, UL2161 and corresponding CSA specifications; UL8750 standard for LED products, combined with practical applications
Other safety tests
For lamps used in wet or outdoor areas such as bathrooms and gardens, IP code testing is also required. The IP rating refers to the dustproof and waterproof rating of electrical equipment. For the specific meaning of the two digits in the IP rating, please refer to IEC/EN 60529. In addition, Waltek can also provide safety testing such as the mechanical protection level of the IK casing.
