||IEC Standard, Publication 162A, International Electrotechnical Commission, 1 rue de Varembé, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 1977. 11p. Price: SF.16.00.
||This standard, which applies to luminaires for use with a ventilated plenum or duct (air-handling luminaires), specifies particular safety requirements which are additional or to modify the requirements of IEC Publication 162 "Luminaires for tubular fluorescent lamps". Definitions are followed by sections devoted to: marking; construction (luminaires suitable for direct mounting on normally flammable surfaces; temperature under normal operating conditions; overall performance and temperature of adjacent surfaces under abnormal conditions). Appendices: method of making heating tests; explanation of "ta" (maximum temperature in which a luminaire may be operated under normal conditions) in respect of air-handling luminaires.
