SUBDIVISION DExit Signs

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

CSA C860

CSA C860 means the CSA standard CAN/CSA C860-11 entitled Performance of Internally Lighted Exit Signs. (CSA C860)

exit sign

exit sign has the same meaning as in CSA C860. It does not include an exit sign that flashes or that is photoluminescent or radioluminescent. (enseigne de sortie)

legend

legend means any of the following that is displayed on an exit sign:

  • (a) a representation of a running person, as described in Annex B.1 of the CSA standard CSA C22.2 No. 141 entitled Emergency lighting equipment; and

  • (b) the word “EXIT” or “SORTIE”. (légende)

  • SOR/2018-201, s. 57

Marginal note:Energy-using product

  •  (1) An exit sign is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purpose of section 4, an exit sign is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after November 1, 2004.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to exit signs described in column 1.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) An exit sign complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by CSA C860 that are applicable to an exit sign as defined in section 519.

Marginal note:Information

 For the purpose of subsection 5(1) of the Act, the following information must be collected in accordance with CSA C860 and provided to the Minister in respect of an exit sign:

  • (a) its type;

  • (b) its power consumption, expressed in watts; and

  • (c) the number of legends.

SUBDIVISION ETraffic Signal Modules

Marginal note:Definitions

 The following definitions apply in this Subdivision.

traffic signal module

traffic signal module means a self-contained device that is designed to

  • (a) fit into a traffic signal housing; and

  • (b) provide drivers with movement information by means of a red or green traffic signal indicator that has a nominal diameter of 200 mm (8 inches) or 300 mm (12 inches). (module de signalisation routière)

VTCSH Arrow

VTCSH Arrow means the Institute of Transportation Engineers standard entitled Vehicle Traffic Control Signal Heads: Light Emitting Diode (LED) Vehicle Arrow Traffic Signal Supplement, dated July 1, 2007. (VTCSH Arrow)

VTCSH Circular

VTCSH Circular means the Institute of Transportation Engineers standard entitled Vehicle Traffic Control Signal Heads: Light Emitting Diode (LED) Circular Signal Supplement, dated June 27, 2005. (VTCSH Circular)

  • SOR/2018-201, s. 58

Marginal note:Energy-using product

  •  (1) A traffic signal module is prescribed as an energy-using product.

  • Marginal note:Limit

    (2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 525, a traffic signal module is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after January 1, 2007.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards

  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 3 of the table to this section apply to traffic signal modules described in column 1.

  • Marginal note:Testing Procedures

    (2) For the purpose of subsection (1), the maximum power and nominal power of a traffic signal 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 the standard set out in column 2 that are applicable to a traffic signal module as defined in section 523;

    • (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 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.
