[Luminaires and Fittings Certified for Canada] Light-emitting-diode Luminaire Retrofit Kits Certified for Canada, IFAR7


See General Information for Luminaires and Fittings Certified for Canada

GENERAL

This category covers light-emitting-diode (LED) retrofit kits intended for field installation in certified luminaires and office-furnishing lights.

This category does not cover retrofit reflector kits and LED lamps intended for direct replacement of existing non-LED lamps (e.g., incandescent, fluorescent, induction, high-intensity discharge (HID)) without the need for modification, rewiring or component replacement in the luminaire.

The retrofit kits consist of LED light sources, installation instructions, subassemblies (e.g., LED drivers, or other parts where appropriate), luminaire marking labels, and assembly aids (where appropriate) to facilitate 1) the replacement of the existing light source in complete luminaires or 2) the replacement and/or upgrade of existing LED luminaire components such as LED drivers, LED arrays, etc., in complete luminaires. The retrofit installation may require modifications to the luminaire in accordance with the installation instructions provided with the retrofit kits.

The retrofit kits may be intended for 1) specific luminaire models identified in the kit installation instructions, or 2) one or more generic-type luminaires that meet specific criteria identified in the installation kit instructions. The retrofit kits may be offered by 1) the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), or 2) manufacturers engaged in producing retrofit kits for the general market.

The retrofit kits have been investigated to determine that, when installed in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, they do not adversely affect the operation of the luminaire. A luminaire that is modified so it can no longer accept non-LED lamps has a label provided by the retrofit kit manufacturer affixed to the luminaire - where visible during relamping - that indicates the luminaire has been modified and can no longer operate the originally intended lamp(s).

These retrofit kits can include certified emergency lighting equipment (such as an emergency LED driver) that has been investigated and found to comply with the requirements of CSA-C22.2 No. 141, "Emergency Lighting Equipment." When installed per the kit instructions, the converted luminaire is eligible to serve as part of a facility's emergency lighting system in accordance with CAN/CSA-C22.1, "Canadian Electrical Code, Part I," and the "National Building Code of Canada."

Unless marked otherwise, luminaire retrofit kits are intended for use in a 25°C room ambient.

LUMINAIRE MARKINGS

The retrofit kits that permit the insertion of the original non-LED lamp types are provided with a marking for installation by the kit installer on the retrofitted luminaire. This marking is placed on the converted luminaire where visible during relamping and is intended to alert end users that the luminaire has been modified to operate LED lamps and not to attempt to install or operate the original lamps in the luminaire. It additionally identifies the replacement LED lamp type/model to be used, together with the manufacturer's name and ordering information. The required format and text for this marking is specified in CSA Technical Information Letter No. B-79A, "Interim Certification Requirements for LED Retrofit Kits and Field Retrofitted Luminaires."

The kits using linear tubular LED lamp conversions are also provided with a marking for installation by the kit installer visible during relamping that indicates in text or wiring diagram how the supply connections are made to the lampholders.
