Fluorescent lamps reduce an electricity costs

Light, both natural and artificial, is an essential ingredient for safe and efficient healthcare facilities that really do promote patient well-being. A lighting installation needs to be effective not only in human terms but also in terms of its energy efficiency. This will optimise the electricity used for lighting, which will have benefits in terms of hospital running costs as well as the wider implications of global warming.

DIN EN 60598/A1 "Luminaires", Part 1 "General requirements and tests" describes the mechanical and electrical design of luminaires with an electrical light source up to 1,000 Volt supply voltage as well as the tests required for them. This standard applies in all the countries of the European Union; "A1" is an amendment formulated after the standard was published.  Specifies requirements for luminaires for use with tungsten filament, fluorescent and other discharge lamps on supply voltages not exceeding 1 000 V for use in clinical areas in which medical treatment, examination and medical care takes place in hospitals and health care buildings. This standard does not apply to luminaires for emergency lighting and luminaires for general illumination in non-clinical areas (e.g. offices). For these luminaire types, reference should be made to other sections of IEC 60598-2 AS/NZS 60598.2.
