Lighting Eligibility Criteria

Lighting units, comprising fittings, lamps, and associated control gear, that meet
specified efficiency criteria.

Lighting units must include the three elements required for efficient light output:
lamp, electronic control gear, and lamp fitting, and must also meet the criteria
outlined in Tables 1 and 2.

LED lighting products producing white light are also included, subject to
meeting the criteria in Table 1.

Table 1 General Criteria


No. Condition

1. The photometric data of the light fittings (Luminaires) must have been
measured and tested in accordance with I.S. EN 13032-1&2 Light and
lighting Measurement and presentation of photometric data of lamps
and Luminaires 1: Measurement and file format, and -2:
Presentation of data for indoor and outdoor workplaces

2. Luminaires must comply with I.S. EN 60598-1 (Luminaires Part 1 :General


Requirements and Tests)

3. Luminaires must comply with I.S. EN 60598-2-1 (Luminaires Part 2:


Particular requirements. Section 1, Fixed General Purpose Luminaires)

4. LED units producing white light, and associated control drivers, must
maintain 70% of rated lumens output for not less than 35,000 hours,
when stress tested at 1.5A forward current and 125 degrees Celsius
junction temperature or equivalent.

5. All equipment must be CE Marked.

Efficiency Criteria

Table 2 outlines the minimum efficiency criteria required for lighting units. The
calculation takes into account the efficiency of the lamps (Lumens per watt), the
power drawn by the control gear (measured in watts), and the efficacy of the
fitting in redirecting the light (Light Output Ratio, LOR). The output figure is
Lamp Lumens per circuit watts (ll/cW).
