replacement metal halide lamp ballast means a ballast that is marketed for use as replacement ballast for a metal halide luminaire installation and that is sold in a package of 10 or fewer. (ballast pour lampes aux halogénures métalliques de remplacement)
Marginal note:Energy-using product
(2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 455, a metal halide lamp ballast is not considered to be an energy-using product if
Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
Marginal note:Testing standard
(2) A metal halide lamp ballast complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C863-16 that are applicable to a metal halide lamp ballast as defined in section 453.
456 For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be collected in accordance with CSA C863-16 and provided to the Minister in respect of a metal halide lamp ballast:
(a) its type;
(b) the efficiency of the lamp and ballast combination, expressed as a percentage;
(c) its nominal voltage;
(d) its input power, in watts;
(e) the power, in watts, of the lamps that the ballast is designed to operate; and
(f) its power factor.
