This is the first edition of CSA C865.2, Light-emitting diode drivers — Performance characteristics.
CSA Group acknowledges that the development of this Standard was made possible, in part, by the financial support of BC Hydro, Fortis BC Electric, Nova Scotia Department of Energy, Efficiency Manitoba, Independent Electricity System Operator, and Efficiency Nova Scotia.
This Standard is considered suitable for use for conformity assessment within the stated scope of the Standard.
This Standard was reviewed by the CSA Subcommittee on Methods of Performance Measurement of LED Drivers, under the jurisdiction of the CSA Technical Committee on Performance of Lighting Equipment and the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Performance, Energy Efficiency, and Renewables, and has been formally approved by the CSA Technical Committee.
This Standard has been developed in compliance with the 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 provides specifications for and operating characteristics of non-integral electronic drivers (power supplies) for LED devices, arrays, or systems intended for general lighting applications, including indoor and outdoor, as well as specific cases such as power over ethernet (PoE), and luminaires or lighting systems assembled with two or more LED drivers. In the future, it may include other devices such as light fidelity (LiFi) or visual light communication (VLC).
Electronic drivers are devices that use semiconductors to control and supply DC power for LED starting and operation. The drivers operate from supply sources up to 600 V AC or DC at a frequency up to 60 Hz.
