HWT R149: Proposal for amending R149 (basic document SLR-43-01-Rev.1):

 

3.3.2.6.5. On an electronic light source control gear:

3.3.2.6.5.1.   In case of headlamps, AFS systems and front fog lamps:

If an electronic light source control gear which is not part of a light source module is used to operate a light source module(s), it shall be marked with its specific identification code(s), the rated input voltage and wattage.

3.3.2.6.5.2.   In case of cornering lamps:

An electronic light source control gear being part of the lamp but not included into the lamp body shall bear the name of the manufacturer and its identification number.

An electronic light source control gear which is part of the lamp but not included into the lamp body is used to operate a light source or a light source module(s), it shall be marked with its specific identification code and the rated input voltage or range of voltage.

 

Justification:

-           If an electronic light source control gear (ELSCG) is not included into the lamp body it is consequently also not part of a light source module – accordingly it is just necessary to mention “not included into the lamp body”.

-           If the ELSCG is marked with its specific identification code an additional marking with the manufacturers name is not necessary.

-           The marking of the wattage is not useful neither for the test houses, nor for the end users.
