Standard [WITHDRAWN] 2011-10
The standard specifies the safety requirements for fluorescent induction lamps for general lighting purposes. It also specifies the method a manufacturer should use to show compliance with the requirements of this standard on the basis of whole production appraisal in association with his test records on finished products. This method can also be applied for certification purposes. Details of a batch test procedure, which can be used to make limited assessment of batches, are also given. Self-ballasted induction lamps (where the discharge vessel, the power coupler and the control gear are integrated in the same product) are excluded from the scope of this standard. The responsible Committee is Subcommittee UK 521.1 "Elektrische Lampen" ("Electric lamps") of the DKE (German Commission for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies) at DIN and VDE.
