  • Marginal note:Testing Procedures

    (2) For the purpose of subsection (1), the maximum power and nominal power of a pedestrian module must be determined in accordance with the following procedures:

    • (a) the luminous intensity of the product must be determined in accordance with the procedures established by PTCSI that are applicable to a pedestrian module as defined in section 527;

    • (b) the product’s power must be measured using a watt meter that has an accuracy of ± 1%;

    • (c) when determining the product’s maximum power, the product must be

      • (i) mounted in a temperature testing chamber with the lens portion of the product outside the chamber, and

      • (ii) operated for a minimum of 60 minutes at a temperature of 74°C and with the temperature in front of the lens maintained at a minimum temperature of 49°C; and

    • (d) when determining the product’s nominal power, the product must be operated for a minimum of 60 minutes at an ambient temperature of 25°C.

Interpretation

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Division.

CSA C62301

CSA C62301 means the CSA standard CAN/CSA-C62301:11 entitled Household Electrical Appliances – Measurement of Standby Power. (CSA C62301)

information display

information display means a clock or other device that provides visual alphanumeric or graphical information or indicates the status of the equipment. (affichage)

SUBDIVISION ACompact Audio Products

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

compact audio product

compact audio product means a product that consists of an amplifier and a terrestrial tuner that are encased in a single housing — including a product that can produce sound from another media — and that uses mains power as at least one source of power and has attached or separable speakers. (produit audio compact)

off mode

off mode means the mode in which the product, while connected to mains power, cannot produce sound or provide any mechanical function and cannot be switched into another mode except by means of a manual switch on the product. (mode arrêt)

standby mode

standby mode means the mode in which the product, while connected to mains power, cannot produce sound or provide any mechanical function, but can be switched into another mode with a remote control unit, an internal signal or an internal timer. (mode veille)

Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) A compact audio product is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 576, a compact audio product is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after May 1, 2011.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to compact audio products described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A compact audio product complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C62301 that are applicable to a compact audio product as defined in section 574.
