IEC 60598-2-17:2017 specifies requirements for stage, television, film and photographic studio luminaires (including spot and floodlighting projectors) for use outdoors and indoors, with electric light sources on supply voltages not exceeding 1 000 V.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1984 and Amendement 2:1990. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) extension of the applicable scope from light source to electric light source and replacement of "tungsten filament, tubular fluorescent and other discharge lamps" with "electric light source" in 17.1.
b) consideration of the fact that there are many LED luminaires with non-replaceable light source, and light source without a glass bulb, or with low operation temperature: the applicable scope of relevant clauses therefore only applies to replaceable light source luminaires with a glass bulb lamp, or with high surface temperature.
