ADR 1/00 Standards/Australian Design Rules for Vehicles as made
This vehicle standard prescribes the photometric requirements for reversing lamps which will warn pedestrians and other road users that the vehicle is about to move or is moving in the reverse direction, and which during the hours of darkness will aid the driver in reversing manoeuvres.
Administered by: Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications
General Comments: This standard was originally made under section 7 of the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 and from 1 July 2021 continues in force as if it were a national road vehicle standard determined under section 12 of the Road Vehicle Standards Act 2018 (see Schedule 3, Part 2, item 2 of the Road Vehicle Standards (Consequential and Transitional Provisions) Act 2018).

This standard repeals each vehicle standard with the name Australian Design Rule 1/00 — Reversing Lamps that is: (a) made under section 7 of the Motor Vehicles Standard Act 1989; and (b) in force at the commencement of this standard. This standard also repeals each instrument made under section 7 of the Motor Vehicles Standard Act 1989 that creates a vehicle standard with the name Australian Design Rule 1/00 — Reversing Lamps, if there are no other vehicle standards created by that instrument, or amendments to vehicle standards made by that instrument, that are still in force at the commencement of this standard.

EXAMPLES OF ARRANGEMENTS OF APPROVAL MARKS

Figure 1  Marking for single lamps

Model A

 

The device bearing the approval mark shown above is a reversing lamp approved in the Netherlands (E 4) pursuant to Regulation No. 23 under approval number 221.  The approval number indicates that the approval was granted in accordance with the requirements of Regulation No. 23 in its original form as amended by supplements 1 and /or 2, as the case may be.  The arrow indicates the side on which the required photometric specifications are met up to an angle of 45 degrees H.

Note:  The approval number and additional symbol shall be placed close to the circle and either above or below the letter "E" or to the left or right of that letter.  The digits of the approval number and of the production serial number shall be on the same side of the letter "E" and face the same direction.  The use of Roman numerals as approval numbers should be avoided so as to prevent any confusion with other symbols.

 


Figure 2

Simplified marking for grouped, combined or reciprocally incorporated lamps

(The vertical and horizontal lines schematize the shape of the light-signalling device.  These are not part of the approval mark)

 

 

Note:  The three examples of approval marks, models B, C and D represent three possible variables for the marking of a lighting device when two or more lamps are part of the same assembly or grouped, combined or  reciprocally incorporated  lamps.   This  approval mark  shows  that  the device  was approved  in the Netherlands (E 4) under approval number 3333 and comprising:

A reflex-retro reflector of class IA approved in accordance with the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 3;

A rear direction indicator lamp of category 2a approved in accordance with the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6;

A red rear position lamp (R) approved in accordance with the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7;


Annex 3

PHOTOMETRIC MEASUREMENTS

1.               Measurement methods

When  photometric  measurements  are  taken,  stray  reflections  shall  be  avoided  by appropriate masking.

1.2.             In the event that the results of measurements are challenged, measurements shall be taken in such a way as to meet the following requirements:

1.2.1.          the distance of measurement shall be such that the law of the inverse of the square of the distance is applicable;

1.2.2.          the measuring equipment shall be such that the angle subtended by the receiver from the reference centre of the light is between 10' and 1 degrees ;

1.2.3.          the intensity requirement for a particular direction of observation shall be satisfied if the required intensity is obtained in a direction deviating by not more than one quarter of a degree from the direction of observation.

2.               Measuring points expressed in degrees of angle with the axis of reference and values of  the minimum intensities of the light emitted

 

 

2.1.               The directions H = 0 degrees  and V = 0 degrees correspond to the axis of reference.  On the vehicle they are horizontal, parallel to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle and oriented in the required direction of visibility.  They pass through the centre of reference.     The   values   shown   in   the  table   give,   for   the  various  directions  of measurement, the minimum intensities in cd.

2.2.               If visual examination of a lamp appears to reveal substantial local variations of intensity, a check shall be made to ensure that no intensity measured between two of the directions of measurement referred to above is below 50% of the lower minimum intensity of the two prescribed for these directions of measurement.

3.                  Photometric measurement of lamps equipped with several light sources

The photometric performance shall be checked:

3.1.               For non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other):

with the light sources present in the lamp, in accordance with paragraph 7.1.1. of this Regulation.

3.2.               For replaceable filament lamps:

when equipped with mass production filament lamps at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V the luminous intensity values produced shall lie between the maximum limit given in this Regulation  and  the  minimum  limit  of  this  Regulation  increased  according  to  the permissible deviation of the luminous flux permitted for the type of filament lamp chosen, as stated in Regulation No. 37 for production filament lamps; alternatively a standard filament lamp may be used in turn, in each of the individual positions, operated at its reference flux, the individual measurements in each position being added together.


Annex 4

COLOUR OF WHITE LIGHT

(Trichromatic coordinates)

 

Limit towards blue      :  x > 0.310

"         "       yellow  :  x < 0.500

"         "       green    :  y < 0.150 + 0.640x

"         "       purple   :  y > 0.050 + 0.750x

"         "       red        :  y > 0.382

For checking these colorimetric characteristics, a source of light at a colour temperature of 2,854 degrees K corresponding to illuminant A of the International Commission on Illumination (ICI) shall be used.   However, for lamps equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other), the colorimetric characteristics should be verified with the light sources present in the lamp, in accordance with paragraph 7.1.1. of this Regulation.


Annex 5

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION CONTROL PROCEDURES

1.                GENERAL

1.1.             The conformity requirements shall be considered satisfied from a mechanical and geometric  standpoint,  if  the  differences  do  not  exceed  inevitable  manufacturing deviations within the requirements of this Regulation.

1.2.             With respect to photometric performances, the conformity of mass-produced lamps   shall not be contested if, when testing photometric performances of any lamp chosen at random and equipped with a standard filament lamp, or when the lamps are equipped with   non-replaceable   light   sources   (filament   lamps   or   other)   ,   and   when   all measurements are made at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V respectively:

1.2.1.          no measured value deviates unfavourably by more than 20 % from the values prescribed in this Regulation.

1.2.2.          If, in the case of a lamp equipped with a replaceable light source and if results of the test described above do not meet the requirements, tests on lamps shall be repeated using another standard filament lamp.

1.3.             The chromaticity coordinates shall be complied with when the lamp is equipped with a standard filament lamp, or for lamps equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps or other), when the colorimetric characteristics are verified with the light source present in the lamp.

2.                MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR VERIFICATION OF CONFORMITY BY THE MANUFACTURER

                   For each type of lamp the holder of the approval mark shall carry out at least the following tests, at appropriate intervals. The tests shall be carried out in accordance with the provisions of this Regulation.

                   If any sampling shows non-conformity with regard to the type of test concerned, further samples shall be taken and tested. The manufacturer shall take steps to ensure the conformity of the production concerned.

2.1.             Nature of tests

                   Tests of conformity in this Regulation shall cover the photometric and colorimetric characteristics.

2.2.             Methods used in tests

2.2.1.          Tests shall generally be carried out in accordance with the methods set out in this Regulation.

2.2.2.          In any test of conformity carried out by the manufacturer, equivalent methods may be used with the consent of the competent authority responsible for approval tests . The manufacturer is responsible for proving that the applied methods are equivalent to those laid down in this Regulation.

2.2.3.          The application of paragraphs 2.2.1. and 2.2.2. requires regular calibration of test apparatus and its correlation with measurements made by a competent authority.

2.2.4.          In all cases the reference methods shall be those of this Regulation, particularly for the purpose of administrative verification and sampling.

2.3.             Nature of sampling

                   Samples of lamps shall be selected at random from the production of a uniform batch. A uniform batch means a set of lamps of the same type, defined according to the production methods of the manufacturer.

                   The assessment shall in general cover series production from individual factories. However, a manufacturer may group together records concerning the same type from several factories, provided these operate under the same quality system and quality management.

2.4.             Measured and recorded photometric characteristics

                   The sampled lamp shall be subjected to photometric measurements for the minimum values at the points listed in annex 4 and the chromaticity coordinates listed in annex 5, provided for in the Regulation.

2.5.             Criteria governing acceptability

                   The manufacturer is responsible for carrying out a statistical study of the test results and for  defining,  in  agreement  with  the  competent  authority,  criteria  governing  the acceptability of his products in order to meet the specifications laid down for verification of conformity of products in paragraph 9.1. of this Regulation.

                   The criteria governing the acceptability shall be such that, with a confidence level of 95 %, the minimum probability of passing a spot check in accordance with annex 6 (first sampling) would be 0.95.


Annex 6

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR SAMPLING BY AN INSPECTOR

1.                GENERAL

1.1.             The conformity requirements shall be considered satisfied from a mechanical and a geometric standpoint, in accordance with the requirements of this Regulation, if any, if the differences do not exceed inevitable manufacturing deviations.

1.2.             With respect to photometric performance, the conformity of mass-produced lamps shall not be contested if, when testing photometric performances of any lamp chosen at random and equipped with a standard filament lamp, or when the lamps are equipped with   non-replaceable   light   sources   (filament   lamps   or   other),   and   when   all measurements are made at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V respectively:

1.2.1.          no measured value deviates unfavourably by more than 20 % from the values prescribed in this Regulation.

1.2.2.          If, in the case of a lamp equipped with a replaceable light source and if results of the test described above do not meet the requirements, tests on lamps shall be repeated using another standard filament lamp.

1.2.3.          Lamps with apparent defects are disregarded.

1.3.             The chromaticity coordinates shall be complied with when the lamp is equipped with a standard filament lamp, or for lamps equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps or other), when the colorimetric characteristics are verified with the light source present in the lamp.
