Lamps for road vehicles - Dimensional, electrical and luminous requirements

EN-IEC 60809 is applicable to replaceable and standardised lamps (filament lamps, discharge lamps and LED light sources) to be used in headlamps, fog-lamps and signalling lamps for road vehicles. In some applications, these lamps may be installed as nonreplaceable. This standard is especially applicable to those lamps which are the subject of legislation. In particular, it includes the lamps contained in Regulations No. 37, No. 99, No. 128 and its series of amendments of the Geneva Agreement of 20 March 1958 of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE). However, the standard may be used for other lamps falling under the scope of this standard, as well as lamps which are subject of legislation but not contained in Regulations No. 37, No. 99 and No. 128, e.g. the non-replaceable (filament) lamps and LED modules. For replaceable and standardised lamps, the standard specifies the technical requirements with methods of tests and basic interchangeability (dimensional, electrical and luminous) for lamps of normal production and for standard (étalon) lamps. For most of the requirements given in this standard, reference is made to the “relevant lamp data sheet”. For all lamps listed in Clause 8, data sheets are contained in this standard or included by reference. For other lamps, the relevant data are supplied by the lamp manufacturer or responsible vendor. It could be based on national legislation. Other requirements to replaceable and standardised lamps such as lamp life, luminous flux maintenance, torsion strength and resistance to vibration and shock are specified in IEC 60810. Such requirements to non-replaceable lamps are given in this standard. For some test methods, reference is made to IEC 60810. Road vehicle lamps for supplementary purposes which are not the subject of legislation are specified in IEC 60983. In countries which legislate for approval, for example under the terms of the aforementioned UN Regulations, it is suggested that reference is made to this standard for assessment of compliance. IEC 60810 and IEC 60983 are not intended for that purpose.

Sijalke za cestna vozila - Dimenzijske, električne in svetlobne zahteve - Dopolnilo A2 (IEC 60809:2014/A2:2017)

EN-IEC 60809 se uporablja za zamenljive in standardizirane sijalke (konvencionalne sijalke, razelektritvene sijalke ter svetlobne vire LED), ki se uporabljajo v žarometih, meglenkah in signalnih lučeh za cestna vozila. V nekaterih primerih uporabe so lahko te sijalke nameščene kot nezamenljive. Ta standard se uporablja zlasti za sijalke, ki so predmet zakonodaje. Zajema predvsem sijalke iz Uredb št. 37, 99 in 128 ter povezane skupine dopolnil Ženevskega sporazuma z dne 20. marca 1958 Ekonomske komisije Združenih narodov za Evropo (UNECE). Vendar standard se lahko uporablja za druge sijalke, ki spadajo na področje uporabe tega standarda, in sijalke, ki so predmet zakonodaje, vendar niso zajete v Uredbah št. 37, 99 in 128, kot so na primer nezamenljive (konvencionalne) sijalke in moduli LED. Za zamenljive in standardizirane sijalke standard določa tehnične (dimenzijske, električne in svetlobne) zahteve s preskusnimi metodami ter osnovno zamenljivostjo za sijalke običajne proizvodnje in standardne (etalonske) sijalke. Pri večini zahtev iz tega standarda je omenjen »tehnični list ustrezne sijalke«. Tehnični listi za vse sijalke, navedene v točki 8, so vključeni v tem standardu ali omenjeni kot referenca. Ustrezne podatke za druge sijalke zagotovi njihov proizvajalec ali pooblaščeni prodajalec. Ti podatki lahko temeljijo na nacionalni zakonodaji. Druge zahteve za zamenljive in standardizirane sijalke, kot so življenjska doba sijalke, vzdrževanje svetlobnega toka, torzijska moč ter odpornost na tresljaje in sunke, so določene v standardu IEC 60810. Tovrstne zahteve za nezamenljive sijalke so podane v tem standardu. Za nekatere preskusne metode je omenjen standard IEC 60810. Sijalke za cestna vozila za dodatne namene, ki niso predmet zakonodaje, so opredeljene v standardu IEC 60983. Za države, ki sprejemajo zakone za odobritev, na primer v skladu z zgoraj navedenimi uredbami ZN, se predlaga, da se ta standard uporabi kot referenca pri oceni skladnosti. IEC 60810 in IEC 60983 nista predvidena za ta namen.
