BIS CRS Certification for Standalone LED

An LED Module, also known as Light-Emitting Diode, is a type of LED Device that can either function independently or be powered by plugging it into a particular unit. One or more LED emitters are frequently contained in a board fixture that powers the LED Lights or plugs into a unit that powers the LED module. Such modules, also known as LED Arrays, use one or more diodes that are organised on a circuit board. The Bureau of Indian Standards and the Government of India have made it mandatory to register Standalone Led Modules under CRS or Compulsory Registration Scheme[1]. Scroll down to check more regarding BIS CRS Certification for Standalone LED Modules for General Lightning.

General Requirements for LED Modules

Following are some general requirements for LED Modules that should be fulfilled for obtaining BIS CRS Certification for Standalone LED Modules for General Lightning:

  • Modules shall be so constructed & designed that in normal use, they operate without danger to the user or surroundings;
  • For LED Modules, all electrical measurements, unless otherwise defined, shall be carried out at a voltage limit, power limit, or current limit (Maximum/Minimum)& minimum frequency in a draught-free room at the temperature of the allowed range defined by the Manufacturer. Unless the Manufacturer indicates the most vital combination, all combinations (Min/Max) of voltage or power or current & temperature shall be tested;
  • For self-ballasted LEB Modules, the electrical measurements shall be carried out at the maximum limit values of the marked supply voltage;
  • In addition, independent modules must comply with the requirements of IS 10322 (Part-1), including marking requirements of that standard, such as IP classification & mechanical stress;
  • If the module is a factory-sealed unit, then it shall not be opened for any type of test. In the case of any doubt based on the module inspection& the examination of the circuit diagram & in agreement with the Manufacturer or the responsible vendor, such prepared modules must be submitted for testing so that a fault condition can be solved.

General Test Requirements for Standalone LED Modules for General Lightning

Following are some test requirements for Standalone LED Modules:

  • Tests as per this Standard shall be type tests. The requirements & tolerance permitted by this standard are related to testing of a Type Test sample submitted by the Manufacturer for that purpose. Compliance with the type test sample doesn’t ensure compliance of the whole production of a manufacturer with this safety standard. Conformity of production is the Manufacturer’s responsibility and may need Routine Tests & Quality Assurance in addition to Type Testing.
  • Unless otherwise defined, the Type Test must be carried out on one sample consisting of one/more products submitted for the Type Test. Generally, all tests must be carried out on each type of module/where a range of identical modules is involved for each wattage in the range/on a respective selection from the range, as agreed with the Manufacturer.
  • The tests must be carried out at an ambient temperature of 25 ± 2°C.
  • If the light output has detectably altered, the module shall not be used for further tests.
