IEC 60969:2016 RLV contains both the official IEC International Standard and its Redline version. The Redline version is not an official document, it is available in English only and provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between the official IEC Standard and its previous edition.
IEC 60969:2016 specifies performance requirements together with test methods and conditions required to show compliance of self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps intended for general lighting services. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1988, Amendment 1:1991 and Amendment 2:2000. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) title change;
b) scope is now limited to compact fluorescent lamps, but expanded to cover all lamps of voltages greater than 50 V and all power ratings;
c) introduction of requirements for lamp equivalency claims, switching withstand, starting time;
d) low temperature, run up time, treatment of claims for different operating conditions;
e) enhanced assessment and compliance criteria especially for lifetime;
f) introduction in-rush test conditions and displacement factor.
