Title Luminaires - Part 2: Particular requirements - Section 22: Luminaires for emergency lighting
Project Number 3742
Abstract/Scope This section of Part 2 of EN 60598 specifies requirements for emergency lighting luminaires for use with tungsten filament, tubular fluorescent and other discharge lamps on emergency power supplies not exceeding 1 000 V. It is to be read in conjunction with those sections of Part 1 to which reference is made. This section does not cover "explosion-proof" luminaires for emergency lighting (see EN 60079) and does not cover the effects of non-emergency voltage reductions on luminaires incorporating high pressure discharge lamps. NOTE - Some emergency lighting luminaires are designed for operation on normal power supplies during non-emergency periods.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
