Version of section 433 from 2017-06-28 to 2019-04-29:

Marginal note:Definition of general service lamp

  •  (1) In this Subdivision, general service lamp means an electrical device that provides functional illumination and has a luminous flux of at least 310 lm but not more than 2 600 lm, a nominal voltage of at least 110 V but not more than 130 V or a nominal voltage range that lies at least partially between those voltages and a screw base. It does not include any of the following:

    • (a) an appliance lamp;

    • (b) a CFL;

    • (c) a coloured lamp;

    • (d) an infrared lamp;

    • (e) a lamp that has a G-shape as specified in ANSI C78.20 and ANSI C79.1 and a diameter of 12.7 cm or more;

    • (f) a lamp that has a T-shape as specified in ANSI C78.20 and ANSI C79.1 and a maximum nominal power of 40 W or a length of more than 25.4 cm or both;

    • (g) a left-hand thread lamp;

    • (h) a plant lamp;

    • (i) an incandescent reflector lamp;

    • (j) a vacuum type or gas-filled lamp that has a sufficiently low bulb temperature to permit exposed outdoor use on high-speed flashing circuits and that is marketed as a sign service lamp;

    • (k) a silver bowl lamp;

    • (l) a traffic signal module, a pedestrian module or a street light;

    • (m) a submersible lamp;

    • (n) a lamp that has a screw base size of E5, E10, E11, E12, E17, E26/50×39, E26/53×39, E29/28, E29/53×39, E39, E39d, EP39 or EX39 as specified in ANSI C81.61;

    • (o) a lamp that has a B, BA, CA, F, G16-½, G25, G30, S or M-14 shape or other similar shape as specified in ANSI C78.20 and ANSI C79.1 and a maximum nominal power of 40 W;

    • (p) a lamp that emits visible light produced by a current passing through a p-n junction solid state device; or

    • (q) a modified spectrum lamp.

  • Marginal note:Luminous flux

    (2) For the purposes of these Regulations, the luminous flux of a general service lamp must be calculated in accordance with IES LM45, except that the lamp must be tested at 120 V regardless of its nominal voltage.
