Part 2-11: Particular requirements – Aquarium luminaires

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
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 document may be the subject of patent
rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

11.7 Construction
Replace the existing Subclauses 11.7.1, 11.7.2 and 11.7.4 with the following new Subclauses
11.7.1, 11.7.2 and 11.7.4:
11.7.1 Non-permanently attached luminaires shall have protection against ingress of moisture
of at least IPX7. Only class III luminaires where the working voltage does not exceed 12 V RMS
or 30 V ripple free DC can be positioned in contact with or submersed in water.
11.7.2 Permanently attached luminaires shall have protection against ingress of moisture of
at least IPX7 with the following exception.
If a permanently attached luminaire is used in an aquarium provided with suitable drainage
apertures or a cut off mechanism, all surfaces which are located at least 15 mm above the
maximum water level reached in case of overfilling shall be at least IPX4.
For the other surfaces of permanently attached luminaires, the protection against ingress of
moisture can be reduced to at least IPX2, if the following situations apply. During refilling, any
contact between water splashes and hazardous part of the luminaire shall be prevented by the
position of the luminaire.
11.7.4 Provision shall be made to prevent a permanently attached luminaire (see 11.4.3 –
Note 1 to entry) becoming unfixed.
Compliance shall be checked by the following test.
For a permanently attached luminaire which is intended for direct mounting on the wall of the
tank, a force is applied to the fixing mechanism for 1 min in the most onerous direction. During
the test, the fixing mechanism is mounted on test aquarium "walls" made of ordinary window
glass, with the minimum and maximum thickness as specified by the manufacturer. The fixing
mechanism shall not start moving on the glass at a pull of 20 N.

11.11 External and internal wiring
Replace the existing Subclauses 11.11.1, 11.11.2 and 11.11.3 with the following new
Subclauses 11.11.1, 11.11.2 and 11.11.3:
11.11.1 Luminaires shall be provided with a fixed flexible cable and a plug for connection to
the power supply. The length of the cable shall be at least 1,5 m, unless the requirements of
11.7.3 apply.
11.11.2 The plug of the power supply cord of a luminaire is not required to have the same
degree of protection as the luminaire if different from IP2X.
11.11.3 For luminaries other than ordinary, if the luminaire has been clearly specified as
suitable for indoor use only, flexible cables or cords used as a means of connection to the
supply can be made from PVC (like for ordinary luminaires) and the nominal cross-sectional
. For SELV cables or cords, the
area of the conductors shall be not less than 0,75 mm
requirements in IEC 60598-1 are applicable.

11.13 Endurance tests and thermal tests
Replace the existing Subclauses 11.13.1 and 11.13.2 with the following new Subclauses
11.13.1 and 11.13.2:
© IEC 2022
11.13.1 Luminaires shall be subjected to the relevant tests of 12.4, 12.5, 12.6 and 12.7 of
IEC 60598-1 after the test(s) of 9.2 but before the test(s) of 9.3 of Section 9 of IEC 60598-1 as
specified in 11.14 of this part of IEC 60598-2.
11.13.2 A 20 mm thick matt black painted wooden board is used to represent the maximum
possible water level. A matt black painted 20 mm-wide wooden frame is placed onto the board
to provide the spacing between
