General Service Incandescent Reflector Lamps

Energy Efficiency Regulations

Regulatory definition

An incandescent reflector lamp that has a bulb shape described  in  ANSI  C79.1  or  a  bulb  shape  similar  to  that shape,  and  that  has  an  E26/24  single  contact  or E26/50×39 skirted medium screw base, a nominal voltage of at least 100 V but not more than 130 V or a nominal voltage range that lies at least partially between those voltages, a diameter of more than 57 mm and a nominal power of at least 40 W but not more than 205 W.

It does not include any of the following:

  1.  a coloured lamp;
  2.  a rough service lamp;
  3.  a vibration service lamp;
  4.  a silver bowl lamp;
  5.  an infrared lamp;
  6.  a lamp that is marketed for heat sensitive applications or for mine, terrarium, vivarium, airfield, aircraft or automotive use;
  7.  a BR30 or BR40 lamp, that has a nominal power of 50 W or less or of 65 W;
  8.  an R20 lamp that has
    1. a nominal power of 45 W or less, or
    2. a nominal power of 100 W, a nominal overall length of not more than 92 mm (3.625 inches) and that is designed and marketed for pool and spa applications; or
  9.  a modified spectrum lamp that
    1. is an ER30  or ER40  lamp, that has a nominal power of 50 W or less,
    2. is an ER40 lamp that has a nominal power of 65 W, or
    3. was manufactured before July 15, 2012.
