[Lamps] Solid-state Light Engines, OORA


See General Information for Lamps

USE AND INSTALLATION

This category covers user-replaceable, solid-state, light-emitting-diode (LED) light engines, which are solid-state light sources incorporating one or more LED packages or arrays, an LED driver and a mains connection system. They are intended for mains connection through a "defined-fit system" of a compatible luminaire rated no more than 277 V to ground.

A "defined-fit system" is identified by a marking or a proprietary or industry designation assigned to a light engine interface (i.e., base) and its intended holder to control interchangeability.

These products do not employ ANSI standardized base configurations (e.g., Edison base) that are typically used for incandescent or fluorescent lamps.

These products are generally for use in indoor, dry locations unless additionally investigated and marked for applications such as damp locations (not directly exposed to water). Products investigated and marked for wet locations may have additional restrictions regarding use or orientation.

These products have not been investigated for use in emergency lighting equipment or exit signs.

RATINGS

Solid-state light engines are rated in ac or dc volts, watts and amperes. If intended for ac supplies, they are additionally rated in frequency.

All products are marked with their defined-fit system designation, a thermal fit code (when applicable), a maximum case-temperature rating and a test point (tc).

PRODUCT IDENTITY

One of the following product identities appears on the product:

    LED Light Engine

    Solid-state Light Engine

RELATED PRODUCTS

Solid-state (LED) light engines not intended for user replacement, or intended for specific luminaires or special applications are covered under Solid-state Light Engines (OORA2).

Self-ballasted fluorescent or high-intensity-discharge (HID) lamps provided with bases standardized for incandescent and fluorescent luminaires are covered under Lamps, Self-ballasted and Lamp Adapters (OOLR).

Self-ballasted light-emitting-diode (LED) lamps provided with bases standardized for incandescent and fluorescent luminaires are covered under Lamps, Self-ballasted, Light-emitting-diode Type (OOLV).

LED retrofit kits intended for field installation in UL-certified luminaires or office-furnishing lights are covered under Light-emitting-diode Luminaire Retrofit Kits (IFAR).

LED light sources having provision for field wiring in accordance with ANSI/NFPA 70, "National Electrical Code," are luminaires and covered under Light-emitting-diode Surface-mounted Luminaires (IFAM) or Light-emitting-diode Recessed Luminaires (IFAO).
