6.1.             Each daytime running lamp shall conform to the specifications set forth in the paragraphs below. An interdependent lamp system shall meet the requirements when all its interdependent lamps are operated together.

6.2.             Daytime running lamps shall be so designed and constructed that in normal use, despite the vibration to which they may then be subjected, they continue to function satisfactorily and retain the characteristics prescribed by this Regulation.

6.3.             In the case of light source modules, it shall be checked that:

6.3.1.          The design of the light source module(s) shall be such as:

(a)     That each light source module can only be fitted in no other position than the designated and correct one and can only be removed with the use of tool(s);

(b)     If there are more than one light source module used in the housing for a device, light source modules having different characteristics cannot be interchanged within the same lamp housing.

6.3.2.          The light source module(s) shall be tamperproof.

6.3.3.          A light source module shall be so designed that regardless of the use of tool(s), it shall not be mechanically interchangeable with any replaceable approved light source.

6.4.             Daytime running lamps, which are reciprocally incorporated with another function, using a common light source, and designed to operate permanently with an electronic light source control gear to regulate the intensity of the light emitted, are permitted.

6.5.                  In the case of replaceable light source(s):

6.5.1.          Any category or categories of filament lamp(s) approved according to Regulation No. 37 and/or Regulation No. 128 may be used, provided that no restriction on the use is made in Regulation No. 37 and its series of amendments in force at the time of application for type approval or in Regulation No. 128 and its series of amendments in force at the time of application for type approval.

6.5.2.          The design of the daytime running lamp shall be such that the light sources can be fixed in no other position but the correct one.

6.5.3.          The light source holder shall conform to the characteristics given in IEC Publication 60061. The holder data sheet relevant to the category of light source used, applies.

7.                Intensity of light

7.1.             The luminous intensity of the light emitted by each daytime running lamp shall not be less than 400 cd in the axis of reference.

7.2.             Outside the reference axis and within the angular fields defined in the arrangement diagram in Annex 6 to this Regulation, the intensity of the light emitted by each daytime running lamp shall:

7.2.1.          In each direction corresponding to the points in the table of standard light distribution reproduced in Annex 3 to this Regulation, be not less than the minimum specified in paragraph 7.1. above, multiplied by the percentage specified in the said table of the direction in question, and

7.2.2.          Not exceed 1,200 cd in any direction the daytime running lamp is visible.

7.3.             Moreover, throughout the field defined in the diagram in Annex 6, the intensity of the light emitted shall not be less than 1.0 cd.

7.4.             Light source failure

7.4.1           In the case of a daytime running lamp containing more than one light source, the daytime running lamp shall comply with the minimum intensity required and the maximum intensity shall not be exceeded.

7.4.2           In case of failure of any one light source in a single lamp containing more than one light source, one of the following provisions shall apply:

(a)     The light intensity at the points of standard light distribution defined in Annex 3 to this Regulation shall be at least 80 per cent of the minimum intensity required, or

(b)     The light intensity in the axis of reference shall be at least 50 per cent of the minimum intensity required, provided that a note in the communication form states that the lamp is only for use on a vehicle fitted with an operating tell-tale.

7.4.3           A group of light sources, wired so that the failure of any one of them causes all of them to stop emitting light, shall be considered to be one light source.


 

8.                Apparent surface

                   The area of the apparent surface in the direction of the axis of reference of the daytime running lamp shall be not less than 25 cm² and not more than 200 cm².

9.                Colour of light

                   The colour of the light shall be white. It shall be measured under the conditions as prescribed in paragraph 10. below.

10.              Test procedure

10.1.           All measurements, photometric and colorimetric, when not supplied by an electronic light source control gear, shall be carried out with an uncoloured or coloured standard light source of the category prescribed for the daytime running lamp, supplied with the voltage:

(a)     In the case of filament lamps, that is necessary to produce the reference luminous flux required for that category of filament lamp;

(b)     In the case of LED light sources of 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V; the luminous flux value produced shall be corrected. The correction factor is the ratio between the objective luminous flux and the mean value of the luminous flux found at the voltage applied.

10.2.           In the case of a system that uses an electronic light source control gear being part of the daytime running lamp[3], all measurements, photometric and colorimetric, shall be made applying at the input terminals of the lamp a voltage of 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V respectively.

10.3.           In the case of a system that uses an electronic light source control gear not being part of the daytime running lamp the voltage declared by the manufacturer shall be applied to the input terminals of the daytime running lamp.  The test laboratory shall require from the manufacturer the light source control gear needed to supply the light source and the applicable functions.

                   The voltage to be applied to the daytime running lamp shall be noted in the communication form in Annex 1 to this Regulation.

10.4.           For any daytime running lamp except those equipped with filament lamps, the luminous intensities, measured after one minute and after 30 minutes of operation, shall comply with the minimum and maximum requirements.  The luminous intensity distribution after one minute of operation can be calculated from the luminous intensity distribution after 30 minutes of operation by applying at each test point the ratio of luminous intensities measured at HV after one minute and after 30 minutes of operation.

10.5.           The limits of the apparent surface in the direction of the reference axis of a light-signalling device shall be determined.


 

11.              Heat resistance test

11.1.           The daytime running lamp shall be subjected to a one-hour test of continuous operation following a warm-up period of 20 minutes. The ambient temperature shall be 23°C ± 5°.  The light source used shall be a light source of the category specified for the daytime running lamp, and shall be supplied with a current at a voltage such that it gives the specified average power at the corresponding test voltage.  However, for daytime running lamps equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other), the test shall be made with the light sources present in the daytime running lamp, in accordance with paragraph 10.2. of this Regulation.

11.2.           Where only the maximum power is specified, the test shall be carried out by regulating the voltage to obtain a power equal to 90 per cent of the specified power. The specified average or maximum power referred to above shall in all cases be chosen from the voltage range of 6, 12 or 24 V at which it reaches the highest value; for daytime running lamps equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other) the test conditions set in paragraph 10.2. of this Regulation shall be applied.

11.3.           After the daytime running lamp has been stabilized at the ambient temperature, no distortion, deformation, cracking or colour modification shall be perceptible.  In case of doubt the intensity of light according to paragraph 7. above shall be measured.  At that measurement the values shall reach at least 90 per cent of the values obtained before the heat resistance test on the same device.

12.              Modifications   of   a   type   of   daytime   running   lamp   and extension of approval

12.1.           Every modification of the type of daytime running lamp shall be notified to the Administrative Departments which approved the type of daytime running lamp.  The department may then either:

12.1.1.        Consider that the modifications made are unlikely to have an appreciable adverse effect and that in any case the daytime running lamp still complies with the requirements; or

12.1.2.        Require a further test report from the Technical Service responsible for conducting the tests.

12.2.           Confirmation or refusal of approval, specifying the alterations shall be communicated by the procedure specified in paragraph 5.1.4. above to the Parties to the Agreement applying this Regulation.

12.3.           The Type Approval Authority issuing the extension of approval shall assign a series number for such an extension and inform thereof the other Parties to the Agreement applying this Regulation by means of a communication form conforming to the model in Annex 1 to this Regulation.


 

13.              Conformity of production

                   The conformity of production procedures shall comply with those set out in the Agreement, Appendix 2 (E/ECE/324-E/ECE/TRANS/505/Rev.2), with the following requirements:

13.1.           Daytime running lamps approved under this Regulation shall be so manufactured as to conform to the type approved by meeting the requirements set forth in paragraphs 6., 7., 8. and 9. above.

13.2.           The minimum requirements for conformity of production control procedures set forth in Annex 4 to this Regulation shall be complied with.

13.3.           The minimum requirements for sampling by an inspector set forth in Annex 5 to this Regulation shall be complied with.

13.4.           The Type Approval Authority which has granted type approval may at any time verify the conformity control methods applied in each production facility.  The normal frequency of these verifications shall be once every two years.

14.              Penalties for non-conformity of production

14.1.           The approval granted in respect of a type of daytime running lamp pursuant to this Regulation may be withdrawn if the requirements are not complied with or if a daytime running lamp bearing the approval mark does not conform to the type approved.

14.2.           If a Party to the Agreement applying this Regulation withdraws an approval it has previously granted, it shall forthwith so notify the other Contracting Parties applying this Regulation by means of a communication form conforming to the model in Annex 1 to this Regulation.

15.              Production definitely discontinued

A daytime running lamp approved in accordance with Regulation No. 87 in its original form;

A front direction indicator lamp of category 1a approved in accordance with the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6.

Figure 3

Lamp reciprocally incorporated with a headlamp

 

The above example corresponds to the marking of a lens intended to be used in different types of headlamps, namely:

either:         a headlamp with a passing beam designed for right-hand and left-hand traffic and a driving beam with a maximum intensity comprised between 86,250 and 101,250 candelas, approved in Germany (E 1) in accordance with the requirements of Regulation No. 8 as amended by the 02 series of amendments,

                   which is reciprocally incorporated with

                   a daytime running lamp approved in accordance with Regulation No. 87 in its original form;

or:               a headlamp with a passing beam designed for right-hand and left-hand traffic and a driving beam, approved in Germany (E 1) in accordance with the requirements of Regulation No. 1 as amended by the 01 series of amendments,

                   which is reciprocally incorporated with

                   the same daytime running lamp as above;

or even:      either of the above-mentioned headlamps approved as a single lamp.

The main body of the headlamp shall bear the only valid approval number, for instance:


Annex 3

Photometric measurements

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

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

2.1.             The distance of measurement shall be such that the law of the inverse of the square of the distance is applicable:

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°:

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.

3.                In the case where the daytime running lamp may be installed on the vehicle in more than one or in a field of different positions the photometric measurements shall be repeated for each position or for the extreme positions in the field of the reference axis specified by the manufacturer.

4.                Photometric measurement of daytime running lamps

                   The photometric performance shall be checked:

4.1.             For non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps or other):

                   With the light sources present in the daytime running lamp, in accordance with paragraph 10. of this Regulation.

4.2.             For replaceable filament lamps:

                   When equipped with filament lamps at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V the luminous intensity values produced shall be corrected. The correction factor is the ratio between the reference luminous flux and the mean value of the luminous flux found at the voltage applied (6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V). The actual luminous fluxes of each filament lamp used shall not deviate more than ±5 per cent from the mean value. Alternatively standard filament lamp(s) 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.

4.3.             For any daytime running lamp except those equipped with filament lamp(s), the luminous intensities, measured after one minute and after 30 minutes of operation, shall comply with the minimum and maximum requirements.  The luminous intensity distribution after one minute of operation can be calculated from the luminous intensity distribution after 30 minutes of operation by applying at each test point the ratio of luminous intensities measured at HV after one minute and after 30 minutes of operation.

5.                Table of standard light distribution

 

 

3.1.             The direction H = 0° and V = 0° corresponds to the reference axis.  (On the vehicle, it is horizontal, parallel to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle and oriented in the required direction of visibility).  It passes through the centre of reference. The values shown in the table give, for the various directions of measurement, the minimum intensities as a percentage of the minimum required in the axis for each daytime running lamp (in the direction H = 0° and V = 0°).

3.2.             Within the field of light distribution of paragraph 3 above schematically shown as a grid, the light pattern should be substantially uniform, i.e. in so far as the light intensity in each direction of a part of the field formed by the grid lines shall meet at least the lowest minimum value being shown on the grid lines surrounding the questioned direction as a percentage.

Annex 4

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 light source 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 per cent from the values prescribed in this Regulation. 

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

1.3.             The chromaticity coordinates shall be complied with when the lamp is equipped with a standard filament lamp(s), 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 Type Approval 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. above requires regular calibration of test apparatus and its correlation with measurements made by a Type Approval 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 3 to this Regulation and the required chromaticity coordinates.

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 Type Approval Authority, criteria governing the acceptability of his products in order to meet the specifications laid down for verification of conformity of products in paragraph 13.1. of this Regulation.

                   The criteria governing the acceptability shall be such that, with a confidence level of 95 per cent, the minimum probability of passing a spot check in accordance with Annex 5 (first sampling) would be 0.95.


Annex 5

Minimum requirements for sampling by an inspector

1.                General
