GENERAL

This category covers light-emitting-diode (LED) retrofit kits intended for field installation in certified commercial refrigerators and freezers.

This category does not cover luminaire conversion lamps intended for direct replacement of existing lamps without the need for modification, rewiring or component replacement in the commercial refrigerator or freezer.

The retrofit kits consist of LED light sources, installation instructions, subassemblies, end-product luminaire marking labels, and assembly aids (where appropriate) to facilitate the replacement of the existing light source in complete commercial refrigerators and freezers. The retrofit installation may require modifications to the end product in accordance with the installation instructions provided with the retrofit kits.

The LED 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 commercial refrigerator or freezer. A luminaire within the end product that is modified so it can no longer accept the original lamp has a label provided by the retrofit kit manufacturer affixed to the end product where visible during relamping that indicates the luminaire has been modified and can no longer operate the originally-intended lamp(s).

LUMINAIRE MARKINGS

LED retrofit luminaire conversion kits that permit the insertion of the original lamp types are provided with a marking for installation by the kit installer on the end product. This marking is visible during relamping and states, "This luminaire has been modified and can no longer operate the originally intended lamp," and additionally identifies the replacement LED lamp type/model to be used, together with the manufacturer's name and ordering information.

LED retrofit luminaire conversion kits using linear tubular LED lamp conversions are 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.
