Energy Efficiency Regulations, 2016

Version of section 525 from 2017-06-28 to 2019-04-29:


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.
