Two types of lights are about to step down the EU historical stage

Author : Lanhai Date : 9/20/2018 7:16:52 PM
The draft EU regulations propose to effectively ban tungsten halogen lamps and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs, ie energy-saving lamps) as light sources by 2020. As part of the Eco Design Law review, the minimum efficiency requirement for all light sources is 85 lumens per watt and the maximum backup power is 0.5 watts. These requirements are coming into effect. Since the standard tungsten halogen lamp has an efficiency of about 25 lm/W and the compact fluorescent lamp with ballast can only reach 60 lm/W, both technologies will be eliminated by the new regulations. The eco-design approach is often referred to as the “light bulb ban”, which is the phasing out of the EU's inefficient light sources. In recent years, the law has gradually banned incandescent light sources, and non-directional halogen bulbs will be phased out in September this year, including candles, GLS (A50, A60 incandescent), spheres and golf balls. The removal of compact fluorescent lamps from the market is highly symbolic because compact fluorescent lamps represented environmentally friendly lighting in the 1990s. However, despite the continuous penetration of compact fluorescent lamps in commercial applications, the heads of households have never taken it to heart. Many people complain that the color temperature is low and the startup time is long. The presence of mercury is also considered a fatal weakness because mercury is not environmentally friendly. Although few people will mourn the departure of energy-saving lamps, the live entertainment industry has launched a campaign against the elimination of tungsten halogen lamps. The campaign was launched by the Lighting Designers Association and is called Save Stage Lighting. The draft of the new regulations also proposes to return to lighting fixtures that previously used replaceable luminaires. According to current wording, the lighting manufacturers will have the light source detachable and replaceable from the luminaire by September 2020. The draft stipulates that “manufacturers and importers should ensure that light sources and individual controls within the scope of this regulation can be easily removed by the end user without permanent mechanical damage.” If these recommendations are passed, the luminaire manufacturing process will be significantly affected.
