About UL 8750: LIGHT EMITTING DIODE (LED) LIGHT SOURCES FOR USE IN LIGHTING PRODUCTS

Summary of Topics

This is the third issue of the Outline of Investigation for Light Emitting Diode (LED) Light Sources For Use In Lighting Products. The outline covers the component parts of a light emitting diode (LED) light source such as LED modules, LED Arrays, power sources and control circuitry. It covers LED light sources that are produced by the end use product manufacturer, and that are an integral part of the end use product, or discrete component parts of an LED light source produced by one manufacturer for use in another manufacturer’s lighting product.

INTRODUCTION

1 Scope

1.1 These requirements specify the minimum safety requirements for the component parts of a light emitting diode (LED) light source that serves as the source of illumination in any of the lighting products listed in 1.3.

1.2 An LED light source consists of one or more of the following component parts:

a) LED package, array, or module that converts electrical energy to light (400 - 700 nm) or UV radiation (180 - 400 nm) or infrared radiation (700 nm - 300 nm), and heat,

b) Power source that supplies the proper voltage and current to operate the LEDs,

c) Control (controller) circuitry that may switch, dim or otherwise control the electrical energy to the LEDs.

1.3 LED light sources complying with these specifications are utilized as the source of illumination in lighting nproducts that comply with the appropriate end-product standard as listed below. These lighting products are intended for installation on branch circuits of 600 V nominal or less in non-hazardous locations in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70. These requirements also apply to LED light sources connected to isolated (non-utility connected) power sources such as batteries, fuel cells, and the like.

Included are:

a) Luminaires, UL 1598;
b) Portable luminaires, UL 153;
c) Stage and studio luminaires, UL 1573;
d) Submersible luminaires, UL 676;
e) Swimming pool luminaires, UL 676;
f) Track lighting systems, UL 1574 ;
g) Signs, UL 48;
h) Emergency lighting and exit signs, UL 924;
i) Self-ballasted lamps, UL 1993;
j) Luminous Egress Path Marking Systems, UL 1994;
k) Nightlights, UL 1786;
l) Flexible lighting, UL 2388;
m) Low Voltage Lighting Systems, UL 2108;
n) Lampholder Fittings, UL 496;
o) Low Voltage Landscape Lighting, UL 1838; and
p) Luminaires for Use in Hazardous (Classified) Locations, UL 844.

2 General

2.1 Components

2.1.1 Except as indicated in 2.1.2, a component of a product covered by this outline shall comply with the requirements for that component. See Appendix A for a list of standards covering components used in the products covered by this outline.

2.1.2 A component is not required to comply with a specific requirement that:

a) Involves a feature or characteristic not required in the application of the component in the product covered by this outline, or

b) Is superseded by a requirement in this
