This is the fifth edition of CSA C862, Performance of incandescent reflector lamps. It supersedes the previous editions, published in 2009, 2001, 1997, and 1995.
This Standard specifies performance requirements for floodlight and spotlight reflector lamps used in general lighting applications, including requirements for efficacy, wattage, rated life, and centre beam intensity. The requirements of this Standard are in addition to those specified in CSA C22.2 No. 84-05, Incandescent lamps.
This edition incorporates the following changes:
(a) Clause 1.4 has been modified in its exclusions.
(b) Clause 3 includes new definitions and clarifies existing definitions.
(c) Clause 4 has been modified.
(d) Table 1 has been replaced by a new table with updated values.
(e) Clause 8.2 has been modified in the range of ambient temperature conditions it specifies.
(f) Clause 9 has been modified.
This Standard is intended to be used as a reference document for regulatory authorities requiring verification of the performance of energy-efficient products. Harmonization with relevant international Standards was a key factor in its development.
CSA Group acknowledges that the development of this Standard was made possible, in part, by the financial support of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), the Ontario Ministry of Energy, the Canadian Electricity Association, the Ontario Power Authority, and Conserve Nova Scotia.
This Standard is considered suitable for use for conformity assessment within the stated scope of the Standard.
This Standard was prepared by the Subcommittee on Performance of Incandescent Reflector Lamps, under the jurisdiction of the Technical Committee on Lighting and the Strategic Steering Committee on Performance, Energy Efficiency, and Renewables, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee.
This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This Standard describes testing procedures and states performance requirements for general service incandescent and tungsten halogen reflector lamps.
This Standard includes performance requirements for
(b) lamp efficacy;
(c) rated luminous flux;
(d) centre beam intensity; and
(e) rated life.
This Standard applies to incandescent and tungsten halogen reflector lamps designed for general lighting use that have
(a) a rated wattage from 40 W up to and including 205 W;
(b) an operating capability between 110 and 130 V;
(c) an E26/24 single contact, or E26/50×39 skirted, medium screw base; and
(d) a bulb diameter greater than 57 mm.
This Standard does not apply to any of the following:
(a) coloured lamps;
(b) lamps that
(i) are of rough (or vibration) service type and are specifically marked and marketed as rough (or vibration) service lamps;
(ii) have a coating or other containment system to retain glass fragments if the lamp is shattered and are specifically marked and marketed as impact-resistant lamps; or
(iii) contain a filter that suppresses yellow and green portions of the spectrum and are specifically marked and marketed for plant growth use;
(c) infrared heat lamps;
(d) lamps used in mines or in airfield, aircraft, automotive, marine, aquarium, terrarium, or vivarium applications;
(e) a bulb shape designated as BR as described in NEMA/ANSI C79.1 with
(i) a diameter of 95.25 mm (BR 30) and a rated power of less than or equal to 50 W;
(ii) a diameter of 95.25 mm (BR 30) and a rated power of 65 W;
(iii) a diameter of 127 mm (BR 40) and a rated power of less than or equal to 50 W; or
(iv) a diameter of 127 mm (BR 40) and a rated power of 65 W;
(f) a bulb shape designated as ER as described in NEMA/ANSI C79.1 with
(i) a diameter of 95.25 mm (ER 30) and a rated power of less than or equal to 50 W;
(ii) a diameter of 127 mm (ER 40) and a rated power of less than or equal to 50 W; or
(iii) a diameter of 127 mm (ER 40) and a rated power of 65 W;
(g) a bulb shape designated as R as described in NEMA/ANSI C79.1 with a diameter of 63.5 mm (R 20) and a rated power of less than or equal to 45 W;
(h) bowl mirror lamps (e.g., silverbowl); or
(i) lamps for heat-sensitive applications (i.e., dichroic cool beam).
In this Standard, shall is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; should is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and may is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.
Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.
Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.
Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (nonmandatory) to define their application.
