This amendment has been prepared by subcommittee 34A: Lamps, of IEC technical
committee 34: Lamps and related equipment.
The text of this amendment is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
34A/2032/FDIS 34A/2038/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this amendment can be found in the report

on voting indicated in the above table.

The committee has decided that the contents of this amendment and the base publication will

remain unchanged until the stability date indicated on the IEC website under

"" in the data related to the specific publication. At this date, the

publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.
_____________ Lamps ≤ 2 000 lm
Replace the title of with the following new title Lamps ≤ 2 000 lm without black stripes
Add, at the end of, the following two new subclauses: Lamps ≤ 2 000 lm with black stripes

When measured according to the conditions specified in Annex H, a gas-discharge lamp

having a rated luminous flux which does not exceed 2 000 lm but does contain black stripes

shall emit at least:
– after 1 s: 700 lm,
– after 4 s: 900 lm.
The rated luminous flux is as indicated on the relevant data sheet. Lamps with more than one rated value, and one of them ≤ 2 000 lm

When measured according to the conditions specified in Annex H, a discharge lamp having

more than one rated luminous flux and at least one of them does not exceed 2 000 lm shall

emit at least:

– after 1 s: 800 lm,
– after 4 s: 1 000 lm.
The rated luminous flux is as indicated on the relevant data sheet
6.5 Lamp dimensions
Add, at the end of the subclause, the following new text:

The values of light centre lengths of Lx3A, Lx3B, Lx4A, Lx4B, Lx5A and Lx5B , are measured

as follows.

Measurements shall be made on finished light sources, at an ambient temperature of

23 °C ± 5 °C.

Measurement shall be made at test voltage as specified in the relevant LED light source

category sheet.

LED light sources shall first be aged at their test voltage for at least forty-eight hours.

For multi-function LED light sources, each function shall be aged separately.

Before starting a test, the LED light source shall be operated for 30 min at test voltage.

For LED light sources with two functions, both functions shall be operated at the same time

during the measurement, unless specified otherwise in the relevant data sheet.

In the case of LR4A and LR4B, the minor function and major function shall also be operated

and measured separately, and the light centre length of the minor function shall be 2,5 mm

(tolerance of ±0,5 mm under consideration) and the light centre length of the major function

shall be 3,0 mm ± 0,3 mm.

In Annex K an example of a method of measuring the value of the light centre length is given.

8.2 List of specific lamp types

Add below the row for IEC sheet no. 60809-IEC-9620 and UN sheet no. R37-H17 the following

three new rows:
- R37-H18 H18 12 65 PY26d-1
- R37-H19 H19 12 55 / 60 PU43t-3
- R37-H20 H20 12 70 PY26d-6
The x represents R, Y and W.

2 Any method to determine the value of the light centre length verified to be equivalent to that described in Annex

K can be used
