Luminaire performance - Part 2-1: Particular requirements - LED luminaires

IEC 62722-2-1:2023 specifies the performance requirements for LED luminaires, together with the test methods and conditions. It applies to LED luminaires for general lighting purposes. Semi-luminaires are not covered under the scope of this document. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2014. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
alignment with IEC 62717:2014, IEC 62717:2014/AMD1:2015 and IEC 62717:2014/AMD2:2019;
clarification of temperature requirements for the maintenance test, in 10.2 and Annex A;
introduction of a new Annex C on methods for calculation and measurements of parameters for extension of electric and photometric data.

Performance des luminaires - Partie 2-1: Exigences particulières - Luminaires à LED

L'IEC 62722-2-1:2023 spécifie les exigences de performance relatives aux luminaires à LED, ainsi que les méthodes et conditions d'essai. Elle s'applique aux luminaires à LED destinés à l'éclairage général. Les semi-luminaires ne relèvent pas du domaine d'application du présent document. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2014. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente:
alignement sur l'IEC 62717:2014, l'IEC 62717:2014/AMD1:2015 et l'IEC 62717:2014/AMD2:2019;
clarification des exigences de température pour l'essai de conservation en 10.2 et à l'Annexe A;
introduction d'une nouvelle Annexe C sur les méthodes de calcul et les mesurages des paramètres pour la transposition des données électriques et photométriques.

Tehnične lastnosti svetilk - 2-1. del: Posebne zahteve - LED-svetilke (IEC 62722-2-1:2023)

Standard IEC 62722-2-1:2023 določa zahteve glede zmogljivosti za svetilke LED skupaj s preskusnimi metodami in pogoji. Uporablja se za svetilke LED za namene splošnega osvetljevanja. Polsvetilke ne spadajo na področje uporabe tega dokumenta. Druga izdaja razveljavlja in nadomešča prvo izdajo, objavljeno leta 2014. Ta izdaja je tehnično popravljena izdaja. Ta izdaja v primerjavi s prejšnjo vključuje naslednje pomembne tehnične spremembe:
uskladitev s standardi IEC 62717:2014, IEC 62717:2014/AMD1:2015 in IEC 62717:2014/AMD2:2019; pojasnitev zahtev glede temperature za preskus vzdrževanja v točki 10.2 in dodatku A; uvedba novega dodatka C o metodah za izračunavanje in merjenje parametrov za razširitev električnih in fotometričnih podatkov.
