New safety standards for CSA compact fluorescent tube lamps

CSA Standards, the CSA Group's standard development organization, has released a new C22.2 No. 1993-09 self-ballasted lamp and luminaire adapter standard for the main spiral lamps and energy-saving lamps.

With the entry into force of this new standard, CSA International's sister organization, CSA International, provides China's lighting manufacturers with testing and certification services to facilitate the smooth export of compact fluorescent products to the North American market.

CSA Standards, CSA International, and OnSpeX, which provides consumer goods assessment, inspection and consulting services to retailers and manufacturers, are all branches of the CSA Group. As a leading organization, CSA Group has been focusing on developing new standards for health, safety and sustainability for the past 90 years, providing testing and certification services to a wide range of industries, and providing consumer goods assessments for retailers and manufacturers. Inspection and consulting services.

The C22.2 No. 1993-09 self-ballasted lamp and luminaire adapter standard was released in October 2009 and is consistent with the US (UL1993) and Mexico (NMX-J-578/1-ANCE) standards to ensure compact fluorescent lamps and Other similar luminaires are sold in the North American market to meet safety standards.

The standard covers requirements for types of lamps such as fluorescent lamps, compact fluorescent lamps, high-intensity discharge lamps, LEDs, and tungsten halogen lamps. The new requirements include a new plastic case with the lowest material specifications and several additional end-of-life tests that more realistically simulate the product's failure probability.

Self-ballasted luminaires, such as compact fluorescent tube luminaires, typically have a built-in spiral filament at the bottom for controlling startup and operating current. Although the lifespan of compact fluorescent tube lamps is longer than that of incandescent bulbs, there is still the problem of "end of life", that is, fluorescent tube lamps have entered the end of the life cycle, but before the burnout. Some of the early compact fluorescent products had occasional heat generation at the end of their life, which caused the lamps to emit smoke or the base of the lamps to fade and deform.

As people's awareness of reducing energy consumption continues to increase, such as the efficient use of lighting power by homes and businesses, CSA Group continues to provide multiple environmental solutions through its three branches, covering benchmarks, greenhouse gas registration And training and consulting services in environmental performance testing and product certification.

The CH0004 is a self-contained Battery Charger/conditioner mounted in a ruggedized environmentally resistant case, which provides a reliable and consistent recharge of one or two batteries simultaneously. The CH0004 auto senses battery type to assure proper charge profile.

Unattended Charging

• Smart charge modules that detect open or shorted cells. If a defective cell is detected the CH0004 will not start charge cycle

• No programming or special instruction set to achieve safe and complete recharge of battery

• In no event will a battery be overcharged using the smart charging

techniques of the CH0004

Wide Range Input Voltage

• Allows operation from nearly any AC or DC power source likely to be encountered worldwide

 Conditioning Cycle

• Automatic discharge/recharge function included. The conditioning cycle can be activated individually per battery at operator`s option

Recharge Each String of Cells

• To assure a positive recharge of the battery each individual string of cells in the battery is recharged independently

Any combination of the following batteries: BB-390/U - (NiMH), BB-590/U - (NiCd), BB-2590 / UBI-2590 (UBBL02) / MRC-2590 /UBBL09 / UBI-2590 SMBus (UBBL10) -Lithium-Ion (Li-ion)
