Title Standard method of measurement of lamp cap temperature rise
Project Number 12067
Abstract/Scope Describes the standard method of measurement of lamp cap temperature rise which is to be used when testing tungsten filament or discharge lamps for compliance with the limits. Covers the method of test and the specifications for test lampholders for lamps fitted with various sizes of ES and BC caps.
