EU Commission issues measurement methods for ecodesign of certain lamps

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has published a list of documents to provide ‘transitory measurement methods’ for compliance with its directive relating to the ecodesign requirements for certain types of lamps and ballasts.

The directive, 2009/125/EC, details essential requirements for the ecodesign of fluorescent lamps without integrated ballasts, high intensity discharge lamps, and those lamp ballasts and luminaries that operate such lamps.

The Commission’s communications, published in the April 10th issue of the Official Journal of the European Union, references a number of European EN standards, as well as documents issued by the International Commission on Illumination.  The Commission says that the listed transitory measurement methods will ultimately be replaced by harmonized standards.

VSWR and its Effects on Power Amplifiers

Voltage Standing Wave Ratio results from an impedance mismatch between a source (an amplifier) and a load (test application). This mismatch can influence the performance of the source.
