EU 2021 Energy label classification

These energy labels are in force since Sept 2021. They have been drawn up in accordance with the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/2015.

It applies to light sources, with requirements for the x, y chromaticity coordinates (is fulfilled), the luminous flux (is fulfilled) and colour rendering index CRI (is fulfilled).These requirements are fulfilled.

The energy efficiency class of light sources shall be determined on the basis of the total mains efficacy etaTM. This is calculated by dividing the declared useful luminous flux (1424 lm, flux in a sphere (360┬░)) by the declared on-mode power consumption Pon (16.0 W) and multiplying by the applicable factor FTM that depends on the light source type (1.000, type: Non-directional (NDLS) operating on mains (MLS)). The result is the total mains efficacy etaTM = 89 (lm/W).

EU 2013 Energy label classification

Since Sept 2013 these labels will be needed.

Important for the energy classification are the corrected rated power and the useful luminous flux.
The measured rated power is 16.0 W and might need to be corrected. The correction is dependent from the lamp type and whether or not the lamp control gear is included or not. The choice for this lamp is the following classification: Lamps with own control gear (external or internal). As a result the corrected rated power becomes: 16.0 W.
The luminous flux measured is 1424 lm. The classification of this lamp needed to determine the useful flux is: Non-directional lamps. Then the useful flux becomes 1424 lm. Now a reference power can be calculated.

The energy efficiency coefficient is P_corr / P_ref = 0.15.

Eulumdat light diagram

This light diagram below comes from the program Qlumedit, that extracts these diagrams from an Eulumdat file.

The light diagram giving the radiation pattern.

The light diagram indicates the beam in the C0-C180 plane and in the plane perpendicular to that, the C90-C270 plane. These beams are equal as the lamp has symmetry over its first axis (the vertical axis).

When using the Ev or Iv values per inclination angle, the beam angle can be computed, being 109 deg for the C0-C180 plane and 109 deg for the C90-C270 plane.

Intensity data of every measured turn angle at each inclination angle.

This plot shows per inclination angle the intensity measurement results for each turn angle at that inclination angle. There normally are differences in illuminance values for different turn angles. However for further calculations the averaged values will be used.

Luminous flux

With the averaged illuminance data at 1 m distance, taken from the graph showing the averaged radiation pattern, it is possible to compute the luminous flux.

The result of this computation for this light spot is a luminous flux of 1424 lm.

Luminous efficacy

The luminous flux being 1424 lm, and the consumed power of the lamp being 16.0 Watt, results in a luminous efficacy of 89 lm/Watt.

Voltage across and current through the lightbulb

This current waveform has been checked on requirements posed by the norm IEC 61000-3-2:2018. This norm contains requirements for lamps with a power 5 W, 5 – 25 W and > 25 W. This lamp consumes 16.0 W.
NOTE: standard only applies to lamps with supply voltages higher than 220 V AC.

When power is from 5 to and including 25 W there are requirements for the current. At least one of the three requirements given below, must be passed.

1) Requirement for harmonics and form of the current:

Requirements on the form of the current in IEC61000-3-2:2018

The harmonics in the current compared to requirements in IEC61000-3-2:2018, that belong to the requirement of the form of the current.

2) Harmonic currents less than power-threshold values:

Color temperature and Spectral power distribution

The spectral power distribution of this light bulb, energies on y-axis valid at 1 m distance.

The measured color temperature is 3958 K which is warm/neutral white.

This color temperature is measured straight underneath the light bulb. Below a graph showing the color temperature for different inclination angles.

Color temperature as a function of inclination angle.

The color temperature is given for inclination angles up to 85 deg. Beyond that value the illuminance is lower than 10%% of Ev straight underneath the lamp, that it has not been used for color determination of the light.

For the C0-C180 plane: the beam angle of 109 deg is equivalent to 54.4 deg inclination angle,which is the area where most of the light falls within. The maximum variation of color temperature in this inclination area is about 1 %.

For the C90-C270 plane: the beam angle of 109 deg is equivalent to 54.4 deg inclination angle,which is the area where most of the light falls within. The maximum variation of color temperature in this inclination area is about 1 %.

Luminous flux for chicken

The energy in the spectrum of the light of the lamp can be evaluated by the spectral sensitivity of the eye of chicken (N.B. Prescott and C.M. Wathes, 1999 and J. E. Saunders, J. R. Jarvis and C. M. Wathes, 2008).

The spectrum of the light, multiplied by the spectral sensitivity of the human eye and the eye of a chicken.

parameter [unit] value explanation
Luminous flux [lm] 1424 The light of the lamp evaluated for a human eye.
Luminous flux chicken [cLm] 2475 The light of the lamp evaluated for the eye of a chicken.
Factor from lux to cLux 1.74 With this factor, the lux value of this light can be converted to the cLux value.

S/P ratio

The power spectrum, sensitivity curves and resulting scotopic and photopic spectra (spectra energy content defined at 1 m distance).

The S/P ratio of the light coming from this lamp is 1.7.

Chromaticity diagram

The chromaticity space and the position of the lamp’s color coordinates in it.

The point of the light in this diagram is inside the area indicated with class A. The areas A and B indicate areas for signal lamps.

The color coordinates are x=0.3819 and y=0.3766.

Color Rendering Index (CRI) or also Ra

Herewith the image showing the CRI as well as how well different colors are represented (rendered). The higher the number, the better the resemblance with the color when a black body radiator would have been used (the sun, or an incandescent lamp)

Each color has an index Rx, and the first 8 indexes (R1 .. R8) are averaged to compute the Ra which is equivalent to the CRI.

CRI of the light of this lightbulb.

This value of 85 indicates how well the light of this lamp can render well a set of reference colors, this in comparison with the light of a reference source (for color temperatures 5000K a black radiator is used as reference and for color temperatures 5000K the sun or the light outside during the day).

The value of 85 is bigger than the value of 80 that is considered as a minimum for working areas in general.

Note: the chromaticity difference is -0.0005 and indicates the distance to the Planckian Locus. There is a value mentioned of max 5.4E-3 in section 5.3 of CIE 13.3-1995 however no further explanation of it.
An other reference with signal lights as a reference is given in the chromaticity diagram.

Color quality scale TM-30-15

TM-30-15 is an improved indicator (over CRI) of how well colors are rendered.
TM30-15 Rf = 83, Rg = 95.

TM-30-15-values for 99 samples for the light of this light bulb. The closer the value for a testcolor comes to 100, the more its rendition resembles that of a reference lightsource.

Circadian Stimulus (CS)

The circadian stimulus indicates the degree of influence that the light of this lamp has on the human circadian rhythm. In addition to the melanopic effect of Ganglion cells, the contributions of S-cones and rods are also included. A CS value of 0.1 has hardly any effect and a value > 0.3 has an effect (0.7 is the maximum, saturated, value). The CS value depends on the spectrum of the light and also on the amount of it (received on the eye).

Blue Light Hazard

The amount of blue light and the harm it can cause on the retina has been determined. Herewith the results.

The level of blue light of this lamp related to the exposure limit and the different classification areas.

L_lum0 [mm] 250 Dimension of brightest part of lamp in C0-C180 direction.
L_lum90 [mm] 250 Dimension of brightest part of lamp in C90-C270 direction.
SSD_500lx [mm] 983 Calculated distance where Ev = 500 lux. This computation is valid when it is in the far field of the lamp. Note: if this value 200 mm then the distance of 200 mm is taken as proposed in the norm IEC 62471:2006.
Start of far field [mm] 1768 Minimum distance at which the lamp can be seen as a point source. In this area the Ev is linearly dependent from (1/distance)2.
300-350 nm values stuffed with 0s no In the event OliNo has measured with a SpB1211 spectrometer without UV option then the irradiance data of 300-349 nm is missing. For lamps where there is already no energy content near 350 nm, the values 300-349 can also be set at zero then.
alphaC0-C180 [rad] 0.100 (Apparent) source angle in C0-C180 direction.
alphaC90-C270 [rad] 0.100 (Apparent) source angle in C90-C270 direction.
alphaAVG [rad] 0.100 Average (apparent) source angle. If average >= 0.011 rad then the exposure limit is computed with radiance Lb. Otherwise with irradiance Eb.
Exposure value [W/m^2/sr] 4.80E+0 Blue Light Hazard value for this lamp, measured straight underneath the lamp. Computation is referenced to Lb. Because the distance at 500 lux is in the near field, then this exposure value is too pessimistic and should be lower.
Blue Light Hazard risk group 0 0=exempt, 1=low, 2 = moderate, 3=high risk.
