National CNS Standards on Electromagnetic Induction Fluorescent Lamp

 China Times

The Ma Ying-jeou’s Administration has been very active in promoting the eco-friendly green lighting, in the hope of making Taiwan the world’s pioneer of energy saving carbon reduction. Being a new generation of green lighting as with LED, the electromagnetic induction fluorescent lamp (also known as discharge lamp or electrodeless lamp) uses the electromagnetic induction to couple the energy into the bulb to illuminate. Doing so can overcome the problems of broken filaments or electrodes commonly seen with traditional lamps. This type of electrodeless lamp has a service life of 100,000 hours, and is over 50~80% more energy efficient than traditional lamps, bringing great saving on electricity bills. In addition, the electrodeless lamp has an advantage of more than 95% history factor that can far better solve the problems of power plant’s “virtual electricity pollution claim” caused by the low history factor (only 50~60%) of traditional lamps and LED. It has a wide range of lighting applications in everyday life, and is believed to be an emerging choice of life lighting to challenge LED.

The electrodeless lamp industry is rapidly developing around the globe. China, under its low carbon emission policy, has been the most active player to put lots of effort in helping the industry to grow, and is ready to make its industrial standards. The electrodeless lamps made in China have been introduced to Taiwan, but they are subject to the local safety regulations and performance specifications, and have not been able to pass Taiwan’s CNS, IEC, EMI and many other national tests. For the public safety and health, Ministry of Economics Affairs’ Bureau of Standards has initiated an setting of “National CNS Standards on Electromagnetic Induction Fluorescent Lamp” by organizing seminars and conferences and inviting industrial leaders like Philips, GE, Osram, YCC TEK as well as industrial associations, academic institutions, and test laboratories, to discuss about national standards and regulations, which will enable the exclusion of unqualified products for assured safe use.

Under the support from ITRI, YCC TEK in Hsinchu Science Park has accomplished its self-developed electrodeless lamp EFL which has passed Taiwan’s rigorous CNS14115 EMI test, CNS-14335 national safety standards of indoor lighting, and IEC 60598-2-1 international safety standards of indoor lighting. It is also conferred with the certificate of product inspection and registration issued by Ministry of Economic Affairs’ Bureau of Standards, and has many patents at home and abroad. A 100W EFL electrodeless lamp has better luminance than a 500W mercury lamp, and for a 24/7 lighting, it can save up to 3,504 KWh per lamp in a year, equivalent to a money saving of NT$ 13,000. Plus, its long service life of 8~10 years can greatly help energy-intense consumers, such as factories, supermarkets, and public facilities, to significantly reduce their operational costs and increase their competitiveness. Environmentally speaking, it can help reduce 2,232 kg of carbon dioxide emission a year, equivalent to growing 45 plants.

Taiwan has the technology niche and competitive edge for electrodeless lamps, and Ministry of Economic Affairs is also actively working on the standards setting to take the initiative in the arena of international standards making, and help Taiwanese manufacturers become leaders in the international electrodeless lamp market. This lamp will help solve the problems of heavy pollution resulted from waste light bulbs and tubes, and fulfill the energy saving ideas by reducing the over-consumption of earth resources and developing low-carbon economy, and ultimately contribute to the goal of reducing the earth temperature for 2. It makes all of these meaningful.
