FOREWORD

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

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of the 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, the IEC publishes International Standards. 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. The 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 the 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 National Committees.

3) The documents produced have the form of recommendations for international use and are published in the form

of standards, technical specifications, technical reports or guides and they are accepted by the National

Committees in that sense.

4) In order to promote international unification, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC International

Standards transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional standards. Any

divergence between the IEC Standard and the corresponding national or regional standard shall be clearly

indicated in the latter.

5) The IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with one of its standards.

6) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject

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

International Standard IEC 60192 has been prepared by subcommittee 34A, Lamps, of

IEC technical committee 34: Lamps and related equipment.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 1973, amendment 1

(1979), amendment 2 (1988), amendment 3 (1992), amendment 4 (1993) and amendment 5

(1994).
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
34A/953/FDIS 34A/955/RVD

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

voting indicated in the above table.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Annexes A and B form an integral part of this standard.
Annex C is for information only.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

2005-12. At this date, the publication will be
 reconfirmed;
 withdrawn;
 replaced by a revised edition, or
 amended.

LOW-PRESSURE SODIUM VAPOUR LAMPS –
PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATIONS
1 General
1.1 Scope

This standard specifies the performance requirements for low-pressure sodium vapour lamps

for general lighting purposes.

For some of the requirements given in this standard, reference is made to “the relevant lamp

data sheet”. For some lamps these data sheets are contained in this standard. For other

lamps, falling under the scope of this standard, the relevant data are supplied by the lamp

manufacturer or responsible vendor.
The requirements of this standard relate only to type testing.

NOTE The requirements and tolerances permitted by this standard correspond to testing of a type test sample

submitted by the manufacturer for that purpose. In principle this type test sample should consist of units having

characteristics typical of the manufacturer’s production and being as close to the production centre point values as

possible.

It may be expected with the tolerances given in the standard that products manufactured in accordance with the

type test sample will comply with the standard for the majority of production. Due to the production spread however,

it is inevitable that there will sometimes be products outside the specified tolerances. For guidance on sampling

plans and procedures for inspection by attributes, see IEC 60410.
1.2 Normative references

The following normative documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text,

constitute provisions of this International Standard. For dated references, subsequent

amendments to, or revisions of, any of these publications do not apply. However, parties to

agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to investigate the possibility

of applying the most recent editions of the normative documents indicated below. For undated

references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of IEC

and ISO maintain registers of currently valid International Standards.

1.3 Definitions

For the purposes of this International Standard, the following terms and definitions, as well as

others given in IEC 60050(845), apply:
1.3.1
low pressure sodium (vapour) lamp

discharge lamp in which the light is produced by radiation from sodium vapour operating at a

partial pressure of 0,1 to 1,5 pascal
[IEV 845-07-24]
1.3.2
nominal value
approximate quantity value used to designate or identify a lamp
1.3.3
rated value

quantity value for a characteristic of a lamp for specified operating conditions. The value and

the conditions are specified in this standard, or assigned by the manufacturer or responsible

vendor
1.3.4
lamp designation: type E

Code, indicating economy, to designate a type of low-pressure sodium vapour lamp with

improved luminous efficacy

NOTE As these lamps may be operated on various ballasts with slightly different wattages, it is not satisfactory to

designate them with a nominal wattage. A lamp designation has been chosen consisting of the letter E and a

number approximately numerically equal to their rated wattage. The number in the designation is different from that

of the rated wattage, in order to avoid confusion with the existing lamps designated with their nominal wattage.

1.3.5
lamp starting voltage
r.m.s. voltage at lamp terminals at which the lamp starts
1.3.6
initial readings

starting characteristics of a lamp, measured before ageing, and the electrical and photometric

characteristics of a lamp, measured at the end of the ageing period
1.3.7
reference ballast

special inductive type ballast, designed for the purpose of providing comparison standards for

use in testing ballasts, for the selection of reference lamps and for testing regular production

lamps under standardised conditions. It is essentially characterized by the fact that at its rated

frequency, it has a stable voltage/current ratio which is relatively uninfluenced by variations in

current, temperature and magnetic surroundings, as outlined in the relevant ballast standard

1.3.8
calibration current of a reference ballast

value of the current on which the calibration and control of the reference ballast are based

---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
60192 © IEC:2001 – 13 –
1.3.9
type test

test or a series of tests made on a type test sample for the purpose of checking compliance of

the design of a given product with the requirements of the relevant standard
1.3.10
type test sample

sample consisting of one or more similar units submitted by the manufacturer or the

responsible vendor for the purpose of a type test
1.4 Lamp requirements
1.4.1 General

A lamp, on which compliance with this standard is claimed, shall comply with the requirements
