Title Incandescent lamps - Safety specifications - Part 3: Tungsten-halogen lamps (non-vehicle)
Project Number 23556
Abstract/Scope 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), - floodlighting, - 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.
