SPECIFICATION NO - S-133/DD-177 (Version-II (Draft))
Issued in June, 2007
 This specification covers the safety and performance requirements required to showcompliance of CFLs intended for domestic and similar general lighting purposes having:a) a rated wattage up to and including 26 Wb) a rated voltage up to and including 250 V

 1. Self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamp – A compact fluorescent lamp unit thatincorporates permanently enclosed, all elements that are necessary for the starting andstable operation of the lamp and which does not include any replaceable orinterchangeable parts.2. Rated Voltage – The voltage marked on the lamp.3. Rated wattage – The wattage marked on the lamp.4. Rated supply frequency- The frequency marked on the lamp.5. Initial performance values - The photometric and electrical characteristics at the endof the 100 hour aging period.6. Rated luminous flux or lumen output – Initial lumen rating (100 hour) declared by themanufacturer.7. Lumen maintenance – The luminous flux or lumen output at a given time in the life of the lamp and expressed as a percentage of the initial luminous flux. The meanlumens are the value at 40% of the rated life.8. Average rated lamp life – The length of time declared by the manufacturer at which50% of any large lumber of lamps reaches the end of their individual lives.9. Lamp color – The color characteristics of a lamp as defined by the color appearanceand the color rendition.10. Color appearance – The actual color of the lamp is called the color appearance and isdefined in terms of the spectral tri-stimulus values (color coordinates) according tothe recommendations of the CIE Publication No. 13.3 – 1995. For color coordinatesnear the black body loci, the correlated color temperature (Kelvin) can be used todefine color appearance.11. Color rendition – The effect the spectral characteristic of the light emitted by the lamphas on the color appearance of the objects illuminated by it is called color rendition.The color-rendering index is defined in terms of a comparison of the spectral tri-stimulus values of the objects under test illumination and standard illuminationaccording to the recommendations of CIE Publication No. 13.3-1005.12. Starting time – The time needed after switching on for the lamp to start fully andremain lighted.13. Run-up-time – The time needed after switching on the supply for the lamp to reach80.0% of its stabilized luminous flux.14. Starting temperature – The minimum and maximum temperature at which the lampwill reliably start.15. Power factor – The active power divided by the apparent power (i.e. product of therms input voltage and rms input current or a ballast).
 The following performance parameters are required to be fulfilled:1.
Starting Time:
This is the time taken for the lamp to strike and produce acontinuous output. The lamps shall fully light up and remain alight with in1.00 seconds.2.
Run-up Time
: This Is the time taken for the lamp to reach full brightness, ornear full brightness. The time to reach 80% of the initial lumencharacteristics shall not exceed 120 seconds.3.
: This is the ratio of light output to electricity consumption. The efficacy levelshould be as below:
