60809 Amend 2 ¤ IEC:2002 – 5 – l
LAMPS FOR ROAD VEHICLES –
DIMENSIONAL, ELECTRICAL AND LUMINOUS REQUIREMENTS
1 General
1.1 Scope

This International Standard is applicable to replaceable lamps (filament lamps and discharge

lamps) to be used in headlamps, fog-lamps and signalling lamps for road vehicles.

It is especially applicable to those lamps which are the subject of legislation. In particular, it

includes the lamps contained in Regulations No.37and No.99 of the Geneva Agreement of

20 March 1958 of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE). However, the

standard may be used for other lamps falling under the scope of this standard.

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 data

sheet". For all lamps listed in Clause 5 , data sheets are contained in this standard. For other

lamps the relevant data are supplied by the lamp manufacturer or responsible vendor. It

could be based on national legislation.

Other requirements such as lamp life, lumen maintenance, torsion strength and resistance to

vibration and shock are specified in IEC 60810. The latter standard also gives information for

guidance of lighting equipment design, such as temperature limits and maximum lamp

outlines.

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

ECE 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.

NOTE In the various vocabularies and standards, different terms are used for "incandescent lamp" (IEV 845-07-04) and

"discharge lamp" (IEV 845-07-17). In this standard "filament lamp" and "discharge lamp" are used. However, where

only "lamp" is written both types are meant, unless the context clearly shows that it applies to one type only.

with selective-yellow (outer) bulb shall be at least 85 % of the specified luminous flux of the

relevant filament lamps with colourless bulb.
Compliance shall be checked by the tests specified in annex C.
2.8 Check on optical quality

This requirement applies only to double filament lamps with internal shield for headlamps

emitting an asymmetrical dipped beam when the relevant regulation requires such a test.

The check on optical quality shall be carried out at a voltage such that the test luminous flux

is obtained.
2.8.1 12 V lamps emitting white light

filament lamp shall be tested in an appropriate standard headlamp and it shall be verified that

the assembly comprising the aforesaid headlamp and the filament lamp being tested meets

the light-distribution requirements laid down for the dipped beam in the relevant regulation,

directive or standard.
2.8.2 6 V and 24 V lamps emitting white light

The sample which most nearly conforms to the rated dimension values shall be tested in an

appropriate standard headlamp and it shall be verified that the assembly comprising the

aforesaid headlamp and the filament lamp being tested meets the light-distribution

requirements laid down for the dipped beam in the relevant regulation, directive or standard.

Deviations not exceeding 10 % of the minimum values will be acceptable.
