New Standard For Integrated LED Lamps

In Mexico, there has been a declaration of validity of the Mexican Standard NMX-I-J-324-NYCE-ANCE-2022 for Lighting-Integrated Light Emitting Diode Lamps (LED) for general lighting-safety requirements and testing methods. The Ministry of Economy, through the General Directorate of Standards, based on the provisions of articles 34, sections II, XIII and XXXIII of the Organic Law of the Federal Public Administration; 3, section X, 39, sections III and XII, 51-A, 54 and 66, section V of the Federal Law on Metrology and Standardization; 45 and 46 of the Regulations of the Federal Law on Metrology and Standardization; Third and Fourth Transitory of the Decree by which the Quality Infrastructure Law is issued and the Federal Law on Metrology and Standardization is repealed and; 36, sections I, IX and XII of the Internal Regulations of the Ministry of Economy, publishes the Declaration of Validity of the Mexican Standard that is stated below, which has been prepared, approved and published as a Draft Mexican Standard under the responsibility of the National Standardization Organizations called "Standardization and Certification NYCE, S.C." and "Association for Standardization and Certification, A.C." (ANCE), through the Technical Committee for National Standardization of Electronics and Information and Communication Technologies (COTENNETIC) and the Committee for Standardization of the Association and Certification, A.C. (CONANCE), which is done to the knowledge of producers, distributors, consumers and the general public.

This Mexican Standard establishes the safety and interchangeability requirements, as well as the test methods and conditions that are required to show compliance of integrated (LED) lamps, which are intended for residential applications and for similar general lighting purposes, with:

  • A nominal power of up to 150 W
  • A nominal voltage greater than 50 V and up to 277 V
  • Bushings according to Table 1
  • Concordance with International Standards this Mexican Standard NMX-I-J-324-NYCE-ANCE-2022, Lighting-Integrated light-emitting diode (LED) lamps for general lighting-Safety requirements and test methods, IS NOT EQUIVALENT1) with the International Standard "IEC 62560 , Self-ballasted LED-lamps for general lighting services by voltage > 50 V-Safety specifications, ed 1.1 (2015-04)", for the following reasons:

    This Mexican Standard contains the test methods for:

  • Interchangeability
  • Bending moment and mass that is provided by the lamp in the lamp holder
  • Protection against accidental contact with live parts
  • Insulation resistance
  • Dielectric strength
  • Resistance to torsion
  • Axial effort of Edison-type bushings
  • Cap temperature rise
  • Heat resistance
  • Resistance to flame and ignition
  • Creepage distances and isolation distances
  • Abnormal operation
  • Income protection
  • In terms of the Mexican Standard NMX-Z-021/1-SCFI-2015 "Adoption of International Standards". Which differ in their structure and procedure to comply with the Mexican Standard NMX-Z-013-SCFI-2015, Guide for the structuring and drafting of Standards.

    This Mexican Standard contains the following appendices:

  • Appendix A (Normative) Sheets for integrated LED lamp sockets
  • Appendix B (Normative) Creepage distances, clearance distances and distance through insulation (DTI) for controllers that are protected against contamination through the use of coating or encapsulation
  • Appendix C (Informative) Information for lighting design
  • Appendix D (Informative) Creepage distances, clearance distances and distances through insulation
  • Appendix E (Informative) Fault conditions
  • Which are not considered in the International Standard and are essential to verify compliance of LED lamps with the test methods of this Mexican Standard.
