Title Low-voltage electrical installations - Part 7-715: Requirements for special installations or locations - Extra-low-voltage lighting installations
Project Number 23156
Abstract/Scope IEC 60364-5-55:2011 The particular requirements apply to extra-low-voltage lighting installations supplied from sources with a maximum rated voltage of 50 V a.c. or 120 V d.c. For the definition of an extra-low voltage lighting system reference should be made to IEC 60598-2-23. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1999, and constitutes a technical revision. The major technical changes with respect to the previous edition are: - the clause numbering is aligned with the present structure of IEC 60364; - references to LED modules and their particular installation requirements have been introduced; - and requirements for cross-sectional area of conductors are modified.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
