American National Standard

Approval of an American National Standard requires verification by ANSI that the requirements for due process, consensus, and other criteria for approval have been met by the standards developer. An American National Standard implies a consensus of those substantially concerned with its scope and provisions. Consensus is established when, in the judgment of the ANSI Board of Standards Review, substantial agreement has been reached by directly, and materially affected interests. Substantial agreement means much more than a simple majority, but not necessarily unanimity. Consensus requires that all views and objections be considered, and that a concerted effort be made toward their resolution. The existence of an American National Standard does not in any respect preclude anyone, whether s/he has approved the standard or not, from manufacturing, marketing, purchasing, or using products, processes, or procedures not conforming to the standards. It is intended as a guide to aid the manufacturer, the consumer, and the general public. The American National Standards Institute does not develop standards and will in no circumstances give an interpretation of any American National Standard. Moreover, no person shall have the right or authority to issue an interpretation of an American National Standard in the name of the American National Standards Institute. Requests for interpretations should be addressed to the secretariat or sponsor whose name appears on this title page. CAUTION NOTICE: This American National Standard may be revised or withdrawn at any time. The procedures of the American National Standards Institute require that action be taken periodically to reaffirm, revise, or withdraw this standard. Purchasers of American National Standards may receive current information on all standards by calling or writing the American National Standards Institute.

3 Definitions and abbreviations


In addition to bulb and base codes that are defined in the referenced standards, some terms common to the industry are utilized in this standard and used in Table 1. 3.1 MOL (Maximum Overall Length): Distance along the lamp axis from eyelet solder to top or face of bulb. 3.2 LCL (Light Center Length): Distance from the reference plane (eyelet solder for screw bases) to the center of the light-emitting filament of the lamp. 3.3 Class: A grouping of like lamps having the same rated wattage, bulb shape, base, MOL, and bulb finish, including two or more voltage ratings within a voltage range. Each line item in Table 1 is a class. 3.4 Voltage range: A series of rated voltages related to commonly available supply lines. A footnote to Table 1 lists several common voltage ranges that apply to classes of lamps in this standard. 3.5 Rated wattage: Wattage marked on lamp. See IESNA LM-45 for measurement of wattage. 3.6 Rated voltage: The voltage marked on the lamp. If lamps are marked with a range voltage it shall be interpreted that they are appropriate for use on any line voltage within that range. Consult manufacturers catalog to determine design voltage. 3.7 Base temperature rise: The surface temperature rise above ambient temperature of a standard test lampholder fitted to the lamp, when measured according to the standard method. Maximum base temperature rise limits apply to base-up burn position at which maximum temperature rise occurs unless lamps are restricted to other burn positions by their manufacturers. See ANSI/IEC C78.60360 for method of measurement. 3.8 Service: The field of most common application for a given lighting source. Service indicated in this standard is not necessarily the only application. Spotlight" and "floodlight are generic terms only used to describe either spot or flood light service.

4 Lamp designations
This standard does not place any control over lamp designations. Incandescent reflector lamps are generally designated by wattage, bulb type, and voltage ratings. Additional codes may be applied by lamp manufacturers. See lamp manufacturers catalogs for more detailed information.

5 Bulb designations
Bulb designations used in this standard are defined in ANSI C79.1 and used in Table 1. Since the traditional eighth-inch sizes have long been utilized in some lamp designations, they are so used in this standard. The metric equivalents are shown in parentheses. 2

ANSI C78.21-2003

Certain bulbs are noted in Table 1 with "BR" and ER designations, which are used by most manufacturers. These are the same as "RB" and "RE" bulb designations in ANSI C79.1. PAR is a designation that means parabolic aluminized reflector mostly applied to pressed hard glass, two-part (lens and reflector) reflector lamps. Some R-lamps are also made with hard glass, so noted in Table 1. PAR16 compact reflector lamps made with ceramic enclosures are also listed. Other R-lamps are made with soft glass, and soft glass is implied unless otherwise noted.

Bulb finish
6.1 Reflector Bulbs used in PAR and R lamps usually have an internal metallic coating on the reflector section of the bulb for directing a light beam out through the lens. Sometimes dichroic coatings are used in the reflector section of the bulb, for selective transmission of infrared energy through that area. 6.2 Lens Only those R lamps with clear, inside-frosted, and lens end lens sections are considered in this standard unless otherwise noted. Similarly, PAR lamps with clear lenses, stippled patterns, or molded prescriptions are considered. Colored coatings are not covered unless specifically noted.

Beam photometry and classification


See IESNA LM-20 for method of photometry testing of reflector lamps. See ANSI C78.379 for information on classification of beam patterns.

Lamp Drawings
8.1 Lamp space drawings in Part III For each bulb-base-MOL category, lamp space drawings in Part III of this standard show the maximum limits of the space that may be occupied by any part of the bulb. A typical bulb shape is shown as a dashed line within that maximum space. The space shown shall accommodate the longest and shortest lamps with maximum bowl and neck diameters and maximum bulb eccentricity. These drawings were prepared in accordance with the lamp space drawing procedures in ANSI C78.30. The following general conditions apply to the construction of these space drawings: a. Straight lines are used as much as possible to simplify the space outlines. All compromises with the actual space are in excess of the actual space required. b. All excursions of a lamp bulb are shown relative to a fixed-position base. c. Bulb eccentricity with respect to the base axis is a combination of allowances for angular tilt (skewness) and lateral displacement (true eccentricity). An eccentricity angle of 3 degrees applies generally to incandescent lamps unless special applications require tighter limits. d. The base contact-making gauge for each type of base controls the space near the rim of the base in the base-to-neck transition zone. e. All dimensions are in millimeters unless otherwise specified.

f. Most figure numbers shown in the figures and in Table 1 relate directly to old American National Standards for that category. For instance, Figure C78.21-254 is derived from the superseded Standard, ANSI C78.254-1966. 8.2 Product drawings in Part IV A different situation occurs with those lamps that are not held in place by the base to lampholder fit. These rim-mounted PAR lamps are held in place at a seating plane on the bulb, and the terminals provide only electrical continuity, not mechanical stability for the entire lamp. Drawings of such lamps are product drawings and not lamp space drawings. They define the dimensions of finished lamps. Their positions and space requirements are determined by the rim-holding devices of their luminaires.

9 Electrical characteristics
The values of lamp voltage, current, and wattage shown in Part II are those nominal values that apply after the lamps have been seasoned. See IESNA LM-54 for guidelines on lamp seasoning.

10 Requirements
10.1 Screw bases and special gauges shall be as described in ANSI C81.61 and C81.63. 10.2 Individual lamps shall satisfy limits for MOL that apply to their class as shown in Table 1. 10.3 All finished lamps shall have controlled dimensions, bulb size, and eccentricity such that they occupy a space within dimensions shown in the appropriate lamp space drawing in Part III. 10.4 Finished lamps of the rim-mounted type shall comply with the dimensions shown in the product drawings in Part IV. 10.5 The average base temperature rise of samples of a lamp of any specific rated voltage shall not be greater than the limit shown for the lamp class in Table 1. 10.6 See ANSI/IEC C78.60432:1 for other safety requirements for tungsten filament reflector lamps, and see ANSI/IEC C78.60432:2 for other safety requirements for tungsten halogen reflector lamps.

11 Information for luminaire design


Certain lamp types listed in Table 1 have characteristics, which restrict their applications. In addition, lamp manufacturers may have issued caution notices or instructions that indicate restrictions in the application of PAR and R lamps. Observe the following information and the manufacturers' notices. 11.1 Burning position Certain incandescent lamps are designed for operating only in specific burning positions, and misapplication could cause overheating. 11.2 Lampholder temperature Some of the lamps specified in Table 1 can exhibit base temperatures that are high enough to cause deterioration or damage to some lampholder materials. Those lamps should be used only in lampholders or connectors designed to withstand higher temperatures. 4

ANSI C78.21-2003

11.3 Base temperature The lamp manufacturers may provide information that some lamps specified in Table 1, when used in certain luminaires, could generate enough heat to weaken the lamps basing cement, even when the lampholders can withstand the heat. Those lamps shall be used only in luminaires designed to maintain the proper temperature of the bases. 11.4 Bulb temperature Some lamps covered by this standard operate at such high bulb temperatures that contact between the bulb and a foreign object could shatter the bulb. Avoid such contacts. 11.5 Heat in beam Some lamps covered by this standard emit sufficient heat in their beam patterns to damage materials close by that are flammable or susceptible to heat damage. Avoid lamp operation near such materials. 11.6 Moist conditions Metal parts of certain PAR and R lamps may become a shock hazard when moisture is present. De-energize the circuits before touching these lamps. 11.7 Protective screen Use of a protective screen to protect persons may be advisable for some lamps. 11.8 Shielding Tungsten halogen inner bulbs operate at high temperature and internal gas pressure above atmospheric pressure. Consequently, a bulb could shatter. Certain lamps may also emit some amount of ultraviolet radiation. Therefore, a suitable protective shield, screening technique, or both shall be used with the luminaire to protect people and surroundings from both hazards. An integral outer envelope, surrounding a tungsten halogen inner bulb, may satisfy this shielding requirement. See the lamp manufacturers instructions. 11.9 Accessory equipment Certain lamps may not perform satisfactorily if accessory equipment or parts of a luminaire are attached to or touch them. 11.10 Exposure limitation Due to the amount of energy emitted by certain lamps, such as sunlamps, the times of exposure of persons working near them may have to be limited. 11.11 Protection Many of the lamps covered in this standard have hard glass bulbs and can withstand the outdoor environment. Others, due to higher wattage input and hotter bulb temperature, cannot be used outdoors without additional protection provided by an appropriate luminaire. 11.12 Special luminaires Lamps of the cool-beam type are suitable for use only in luminaires specifically designed for those lamps.
