Luminaires - Part 2: Particular requirements - Section Seventeen - Luminaires for stage lighting, television and film studio (outdoor and indoor)
This National Standard of Canada is based on International Standards CEI/IEC 598-2-17:1984 (first edition, 1984), including Amendment 1:1997 and 2:2000.
This Standard specifies requirements for stage, television, film and photographic studio luminaires (including spot and floodlighting projectors) for use, outdoors and indoors, with tungsten filament, tubular fluorescent, and other discharge lamps designed to be installed on branch circuits not exceeding 600 V nominal or less between conductors in accordance with the rules of CSA Standard C22.1-02, Canadian Electrical Code, Part I. It is to be read in conjunction with those clauses of CSA Standard CAN/CSA-E60598-1 to which reference is made.
(1) A hanger (stirrup) is a part of the luminaire. Supporting devices such as tripods, telescopic booms, and suspensions are not parts of the luminaire. Where applicable, ballasts are built into or mounted separately from the luminaire.
(2) Manufacturers designing products for use in Canada may find a helpful summary of the equipment-related requirements of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, in CSA Special Publication SPE-2000-94, Guide for Electrical
Equipment for Installation and Use in Canada.
