UN R48: Proposal for a Supplement
Download in .pdf format Download in .docx format

For light sources with integrated electronics an “Electronic light source control gear” comprises components between the supply and the light emitting elements. The definition was derived from IEC and CIE, where a light source is the light emitting element. Provisions for “Electronic light source control gear” are normally used in installation and device regulations, but create confusion in relation to light sources with integrated electronics. Therefore, it is proposed to tune this term to the use in installation and device regulations and no longer specifically mention integration (or not) in the light source; “Electronic light source control gear” is not defined in R.E.5., but is part of the light source definition. The proposal also delete the term “igniter” because it is not used in the regulation.
