|Mexico released a outdoor LED lamps mandatory standard|
Recently, the Mexico Department of energy in its official communique released a mandatory standard NOM-031-ENER-2012 "road, highway and outdoor public area using LED lighting energy efficiency standards and test methods", and formal go into effect on May 5, 2013, all covered in the standard category within the LED lighting products in Mexico market shall be in accordance with the standard detection.
The standard for outdoor use the minimum energy efficiency requirements of LED lamps, classification, test procedures, labels and market regulation to make detailed requirements. At the lowest light efficiency requirements for road lighting, LED lamps minimum light efficiency requirements for 70lm/W, LED lamp for outdoor use minimum light efficiency requirements for outdoor use 52lm/W, LED cast light minimum light efficiency requirements for 70lm/W.The light flux mark, all outdoor lamp of total luminous flux measurement value shall not be less than the standard value of 90% markers on the product. Standard also on power factor and harmonic distortion do require, require all outdoor LED lighting power factor of not less than 0.9, the total harmonic distortion does not exceed 20%.
Mexico standards are divided into NOM and NMX two, NOM standard is the Mexico government issued mandatory standards, Mexico by the standardization committee is responsible for formulating, the draft and official texts shall be official gazette published in Mexico. NMX standard is by Mexico officially recognized standards compilation issued by the agency for voluntary standards, only when the NMX become the NOM standard for reference, or related regulations references, became mandatory standards. Department of energy through the National Energy Commission issued Mexico energy efficiency standards, the Mexico energy conservation standards for National Advisory Committee is responsible for the Mexico national energy efficiency standards, implement and monitor the implementation of standards.
To this end, the inspection and quarantine departments to remind the outdoor LED lighting production enterprises: one is familiar with the mandatory standards. The standard of LED product range is very wide, make sure that the product meets all requirements. Two is to strictly control product quality. Since the standard of the technical indicators are higher, so take in all aspects of efforts, especially for the lowest light efficiency index, be sure to achieve the efficiency requirement. Three is the proper ID product labeling. In the marker light flux and life, need according to the actual product, must not blind identification, to prevent excessive identification is not up to the requirement to return. The four is to pay close attention to other countries industry dynamics, establishing access to foreign standards and the technical measures to trade channels and mechanisms. Lighting energy efficiency will be a "more serious" long topic.
