1 Scope

1.1
This Standard specifies photometric performance requirements for luminaires that are used for roadway and street lighting applications as a function of unit power density (UPD).

1.2
The following light sources are addressed in this Standard:

a) Clear HPS lamp

b) Clear metal halide lamp

d) LED

1.3
This Standard is based on

a) Average luminance, luminance uniformity ratio, and veiling luminance ratio as defined in ANSI/IES RP-8;

b) Nominal input power in watts for HID sources;

c) Rated lamp lumens for HID sources;

d) Relative photometry for HID sources as per IES LM 63 and IES LM 31

e) Luminaire input power in watts and rated luminaire lumens for LED sources and does not include constant light output (CLO) applications; and

f) Absolute photometry for LED sources as per IES LM 79.

 

1.4
This Standard is not a design document, and is intended to establish luminaire photometric performance efficiency only, based upon typical roadway configuration

Tables 4, 5, and 6 are intended to be used to establish maximum unit power density (UPD) values for typical applications as per the parameters listed in Table 1. UPD values provided in this Standard are not intended for specification or application purposes.

User specific road geometries could differ from the templates used in the creation of these tables.   Requirements of specific designs may necessitate different variations in distribution, lumen packages and wattages.  Users should review UPD as a measure of comparison across suppliers, within their own geometry, and should note that UPD levels will then vary from the tables within this standard. 

Notes:

a) The UPD values for all luminaires in Tables 4, 5 and 6 do not include ballast or driver losses and ballast factor (BF). The UPD values for all applications include a light loss factor of 1 (LLF = 1).

b) For site specific installations, it is the responsibility of designers to select the optimal combination of fixture type, pole height, spacing and appropriate light loss factor to ensure an optically efficient design. For guidance on design, see ANSI/IES RP-8.

1.5
In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.6
The values given in SI (metric) units are the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

Scope: 
This part of IEC 60079 specifies requirements for the construction, testing and  marking for Group II electrical equipment with type of protection “n” which includes; sealed devices “nC”, hermetically sealed devices “nC”, non-incendive components “nC” and restricted breathing enclosures “nR” intended for use in explosive gas atmospheres. This part of IEC 60079 applies to electrical equipment where the rated input voltage does not exceed 15 kV r.m.s. AC or DC including where the internal working voltages of the Ex product exceeds 15 kV, for  example starters for HID luminaires. 

This part of IEC 60079 supplements and modifies the general requirements of IEC  60079-0, except as indicated in Table 1. Where a requirement of this part of IEC 60079 conflicts with a requirement of IEC 60079-0, the requirement of this part of IEC 60079 takes precedence.

Scope:

This part of IEC 60079, which is a technical specification, specifies requirements for the design, construction, assembly, testing, inspection, marking, documenting and assessment of equipment assemblies for use in explosive atmospheres under the responsibility of the manufacturer of the equipment assembly.

The requirements of this document apply to individual items according to the IEC 60079 series or ISO 80079 series that comprise the assembly and that have individual certificates.

These individual items are then integrated as part of the equipment assembly. Alsoincluded are requirements to address aspects for the assembly which may be beyondthe certificates of the individual items forming the assembly.

The scope of this document includes assessment of the additional requirements forassemblies for hazardous areas and does not include requirements for non-hazardousareas.

It is assumed that compliance with other electrical or mechanical requirements thatare applicable for non-hazardous areas will be verified by either the same or differentparty in addition to the  requirements of this document.

This document does not apply to:

– equipment which is covered, in its entirety, by one or more IEC 60079 and ISO 80079 equipment types of protection;

– pressurized rooms, “p”, in accordance with IEC 60079-13, artificial ventilation for the protection of analyzer(s) houses in accordance with IEC TR 60079-16, and other standards addressing specific Ex assemblies;

– installation at the end-user site under the scope of IEC 60079-14;

– classification of the hazardous area;

– equipment assemblies for mines susceptible to firedamp (Group I applications);

– inherently explosive situations and dust from explosives or pyrophoric substances (for example explosives manufacturing and processing);

– rooms used for medical purposes;

– electrical installations in areas where the hazard is due to flammable mist.

The specification is only intended to provide validation for the initial supply of an assembly.

Where a requirement of this document conflicts with a requirement of either IEC60079-0 or ISO 80079-36, the requirement of this document takes precedence.

This International Standard specifies the loading and strength requirements of overhead lines derived from reliability based design principles. These requirements apply to lines 45 kV and above, but can also be applied to lines with a lower nominal voltage.

This standard also provides a framework for the preparation of national standards dealing with overhead transmission lines, using reliability concepts and employing probabilistic or semiprobabilistic methods. These national standards will need to establish the local climatic data for the use and application of this standard, in addition to other data that are country specific.

Although the design criteria in this standard apply to new lines, many concepts can be used to address the reliability requirements for refurbishment and uprating of existing lines.

This standard does not cover the detailed design of line components such as towers, foundations, conductors or insulators. General requirements, clearances, separations, and spacings of overhead lines are specified in CSA C22.3 No. 1.
