  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements apply to organic lighting emitting diode (OLED) panels intended for task, ambient, or aesthetic illumination, and for portable or permanent installation in accordance with the following standards, and for connection to isolated (non-utility connected) power sources such as generators, batteries, fuel cells, solar cells, and the like, in accordance with the:

    In Canada:

    Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, Safety Standard for Electrical Installations, CSA C22.1,

    In the United States:

    National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70.


    1.1 revised September 30, 2013

    1.2 The OLED panels covered by this standard are intended to be installed in dry or damp locations only, in one or more of the following configurations:

    a)    Secured directly to the walls or ceiling of a structure,

    b)    Integrated into a mechanical frame or structure that is in turn mounted or secured to the walls or ceiling of a structure (for example, a luminaire or sign),

    c)    Integrated into a mechanical frame or structure that is portable and able to be relocated without special tools or skills (for example, a portable luminaire).

    1.3 The OLED panels covered by this standard are intended to be supplied from an electrical power source operating within the voltage and current limits specified in Electrical Construction – General, Section 12. These voltage limits are understood to represent no risk of electric shock injury, and the current limits sufficient to adequately reduce the risk of fire initiation.

    For OLED panels intended to be supplied by a power source beyond the limits of Section 12, see the Supplemental Requirements for Higher Power OLED Panels, Annex a.

    1.4 An OLED panel mounted within the frame structure of a fixed or portable luminaire per 1.2 (b) or (c) need not comply with the requirements in this standard where the risk of fire or injury is fully addressed by the applicable luminaire standard.

    1.5 These requirements do not address the power sources used to supply an OLED panel. Mechanically integrated assemblies that include both an OLED panel and a power source shall be evaluated for conformance with the applicable luminaire standard. Some power sources suitable for use with OLED panels are identified in Electrical Construction – General, Section 12.

    1.6 This standard does not include requirements for the evaluation of OLED panels intended for use in:

    In Canada:

    a)    Hazardous locations as specified in the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1;

    b)    General patient care areas or critical patient care areas as defined by Section 24 of the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1;

    c)    Emergency systems as defined by Section 46 of the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1; or

    d)    Air-handling spaces as defined by Rule 12-010 of the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.

    In the United States:

    a)    Hazardous locations as specified in the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70;

    b)    General patient care areas or critical patient care areas as defined by Article 517 of the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70;

    c)    Emergency systems as defined by Article 700 of the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70; or

    d)    Air-handling spaces as defined by Article 300.22(C) of the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70.

    1.7 This standard does not include requirements for the assessment of OLED panel compliance with building code seismic requirements.
