FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as "IEC Publication(s)"). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

IEC 60598-2-18 has been prepared by subcommittee 34D: Luminaires, of IEC technical

committee 34: Lighting. It is an International Standard.

INTRODUCTION

For this third edition of IEC 60598-2-18 the main technical changes comprise the following.

For LED luminaires with bus control, multi-core cables which are suitable for the transmission

of data streams are often used. These cables are not standardized. Subclauses 18.10.4 and

18.10.5 of the previous edition allowed the use of H05 RN-F cables but this type of cable is not

suitable for the transmission of data streams.

Table 5.1 of Part 1 does not specify a special cable type for luminaires of protection class III.

Therefore 18.10.4 and 18.10.5 of the previous edition renumbered as 18.11.4 and 18.11.5 in

this edition have been adapted to allow an alternative waterproof multi-core cable that conforms

to the waterproof test of Annex D and Annex E of EN 50525-2-21:2011 or to an equivalent

regional standard.

Due to the update of Section 5 of IEC 60598-1 regarding cross-sectional areas of external and

internal cables, 18.10.3 of the previous edition is no longer relevant. Subclause 18.10.3 was

given as a less stringent requirement but in the meantime the requirements of IEC 60598-1

have become less stringent. Therefore 18.10.3 has been deleted.
