IEC 60432-3:2012 specifies the safety requirements for single-capped and double-capped tungsten halogen lamps, having rated voltages of up to 250 V, used for the following applications:
- projection (including cinematograph and still projection),
- photographic (including studio),
- special purpose,
- general purpose,
- stage lighting.
This second edition of IEC 60432-3 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002, Amendment 1 (2005) and Amendment 2 (2008). The main changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows:
- adapting the cold fill pressure requirements and tests for self-shielded lamps to the state of the technology,
- introduction of requirements to fully cover photobiological safety according to IEC 62471.
