Eficiencia energética para luminarios con diodos emisores de luz (LEDs) destinados a vialidades y áreas exteriores públicas. Especificaciones y métodos de prueba [Energy Efficiency for Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Lighting Fixtures for Public Roads and Outdoor Areas. Specifications and Testing Methods].

This Norma Oficial Mexicana (‘NOM,’ Official Mexican Standard in English) sets out luminous efficacy specifications for Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Lighting Fixtures for Public Roads and Outdoor Areas, as well as applicable testing methods to check these specifications. It also sets out the type of information on essential technical characteristics according to the use intended for the products subject to this NOM, which are marketed in Mexico. Likewise, it meets the need for these products to promote efficient use and energy saving.

This NOM applies to Lighting Fixtures with LED lighting components marketed and installed in the country to illuminate public roads and outdoor areas.

Exclusions:

This NOM does not apply to products listed in another NOM in terms of energy efficiency, or to Lighting Fixtures exclusively lighted from LEDs on a threaded base, or lighting fixtures with an operating voltage equal to or less than 48 V.

Likewise, it does not apply to lighting fixtures in outdoor areas that have one or more of the following characteristics: decorative, ornamental, with color-changing light emission, monochrome light (green, red, yellow, blue, etc.), to be embedded in floor, intended for use under water or for signaling.
