LUMINAIRE CLASSIFICATIONS

Quality registered

All lighting luminaires produced by Havells-Sylvania are designed, manufactured and   tested under a quality assurance system in accordance with BS EN ISO 9001:2000, and   are designed to comply with EN 60.598 under certificate number FM 01687. Also, the   company employs an environmental management system under certificate number EMS 39002 that complies with BS EN ISO 14001:1996.

Compliance

The European Norm Electromechanical Certification (ENEC) has been adopted as a   common mark of conformity with European Standards. A mark issued by any single   national approbation bodies implies compliance with all seventeen international bodies.   The ENEC mark now replaces the national test house symbol, and is appended by a number indicating from which test house the approbation originated.

CE Marking

The designated product(s) is (are) in conformity with the provisions of the following European Directives:

2006/95/EC and amendments Directive of the European Parliment and of the Council of 12 December 2006 on harmonisation of the laws of Member States relating to electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits.
2004/1 08/EC and amendments Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 September 2004 on the and amendment approximation of the laws ofthe Member States relating to electromagnetic compatibility.
2009/125/EC and amendments Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council of 21 October 2009 on the establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products.
2011/65/EU Directive ofthe European Parliament and ofthe Council of 6 June 2011on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.

Voltage

Fittings and transformers are supplied primarily for operation on 230/240V 50 Hz. For alternative electrical specifications contact Technical Support

Electrical protection                                   

Class I – Luminaire which relies on an earthed metal case to offer protection
from live parts in case of failure.
  Class II – Luminaire which relies on two layers of insulation to offer protection
from live parts in case of failure.

Class III – Luminaire relies on protection against electrical shock relies on supply at safely extra-low (SELV) and in which voltages higher than those of SELV are not generated.

Classification of ballast-lamp circuit for energy efficiency in lighting

With defined limiting value for each class

According to the CELMA (the European Federation of the National Associations of the   manufactures of luminaires, control gears and lampholders) classification scheme the following classes and typical ballast types exist:

  • Class B2: magnetic ballasts with low losses
  • Class B1: magnetic ballasts with very low losses 
  • Class A3: electronic ballasts 
  • Class A2: electronic ballasts with reduced losses 
  • Class A1: dimmable electronic ballasts

Dimmable ballasts are classificated A1 if they fulfil the following requirements: 

  • at 100% light output setting the ballast fulfils at least the demands belonging to A3 
  • at 25% light output setting the total input power is equal to or less than 50% of the power at the 100% light output setting 
  • the ballast must be able to reduce the light output to 10% or less of the maximum light output

Electronic ballasts (conforming to CELMA energy efficiency scheme classes A1, A2 and A3) are major power savers.

Radio suppression

EN 55.015, EN 61.000 & EN 61.547   
Fittings comply with radio interference suppression and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) regulations

Degree of protection

EN 60.529   
The resistive performance of fittings to solids and liquids is indicated by the IP (Ingress Protection) prefix followed by two numbers. The first number indicates the measure of   protection against the ingress of solids. The second number indicates the measure of protection against the ingress of liquids

Photometric Data

Illuminance cones indicate beam spread, ie. a narrow, medium or broad beam of light. The illuminance values given (lux/Klm) are the maximum values within the beam for horizontal planes at various distances below the luminaire. The beam diameter, ie. the approximate size of the light coverage, is also given. The cone widths are calculated for an illuminance at the edge of the cone of 50% of the maximum. By spacing luminaires at the beam diameter for the appropriate height, the combined effect of adjacent cones is to produce an acceptable uniformity along the centre lines between luminaires (figure 1).

Polar Diagram of luminous intensity distribution: these provide a graphic representation of the distribution of light from a luminaire. Often referred to as polar curves, they indicate the intensity, measured in candelas (cd) per 1000 lumens.

The tables provided use luminaire Photometric data that has been measured and tested in accordance with British Standard EN13032-1 ‘Photometric Data for Luminaires’. Additional photometric data can be provided upon request. All data is also available in EULUMDAT and IES NA formats.

A complementary lighting design service is also available, to provide guidance and recommendations and to ensure lighting solutions are tailored to customer requirements. Supporting this service are the latest computer software facilities enabling accurate predictions and performance checks to be carried out.
