Reference EN 60598-2-24:2013
Title Luminaires - Part 2-24: Particular requirements - Luminaires with limited surface temperatures
Project Number 23609
Abstract/Scope IEC 60598-2-24:2013 series specifies requirements for luminaires intended for use where the necessity of limited temperature on the outer surface exists, due to the risk of thermal effects, combustion or degradation of materials but where the risk of explosion in the atmosphere does not exist. The luminaires are for use with electric light sources on supply voltages not exceeding 1 000 V. This standard specifically excludes requirements for luminaires for use in explosive gas atmospheres and explosive dust atmospheres. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1997. It constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) change of required degree of protection from IP6X to IP4X to harmonize with the international wiring rules; b) temperature limits introduced for glass surface of any light source exposed to risk of dust.

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn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