Introduction

The chromaticity coordinates and brightness of LEDs of the same type have variations caused by the

manufacturing process; this applies to white LEDs and coloured (monochrome) LEDs. Therefore LEDs

have to be selected by the manufacturer into “Colour ranks”. Also the brightness of LEDs has certain

variations, therefore the LEDs are also selected into “Brightness ranks”.

The step width of these ranking systems depends on the manufacturer and the LED type. For certain

applications, e.g. inside an aircraft cabin, a high quality light is demanded, so a manufacturer independent

standardization is desirable.

The purpose of this standard is to provide a simple classification system to enable the end user to define

lighting colour accuracy.
The decimal sign in this document is a comma.

1 Scope

This document defines selection ranks for LED Luminaires, and LEDs including OLEDs for the use in

aircraft lighting. The size of these ranks is defined by the use of grades. This European Standard is valid

for photopic light levels only.

3.4
LED luminaire

device based on LEDs as light source including optics, electronics and cooling equipment enclosed in a

housing
3.5
CIE 1931 colour space
description of a two-dimensional colour space for light colours

Note 1 to entry: In the CIE 1931 diagram the chromaticity coordinates x and y describe the chromaticity locus in

the diagram. For this standard the CIE 1931 2° observer is applicable.

Note 2 to entry: CIE 015 provides more information about the CIE 1931 colour space.

3.6
chromaticity coordinate

two-dimensional data representation of the colour in the corresponding colour space, e.g. x and y for the

CIE 1931
3.7
MacAdam ellipses

area in the corresponding colour space (e.g. CIE 1931) in which all colours have the same visual

impression to an observer as the colour in the centre of this area

Note 1 to entry: The borderline of the ellipse represents the just noticeable colour difference. Based on

experimental data, originally 25 MacAdam ellipses were defined in the CIE 1931 colour space. In the experiment an

observer had a given colour and was able to modify the chromaticity locus of a second colour. The chromaticity loci,

where the observer determined a difference between the two colours were recorded. When all these points were

plotted in the CIE 1931 diagram, they created an ellipse around the chromaticity locus of the given colour. The size

and the orientation of the ellipses are different for different colours.
