This part of IEC 62868 specifies general safety requirements of OLED products for use on DC supplies up to 1 000 V or AC supplies up to 1 000 V at 50 Hz or 60 Hz for indoors and similar general lighting purposes.
This document applies to any OLED light sources which are not covered by IEC 62868-2 (all parts).
NOTE 1 Only test methods for DC operated OLED light sources are provided in this document. Provisions for AC operated OLED products are under consideration.
NOTE 2 The construction of OLED tiles and panels is illustrated in Figure A.1 to Figure A.4 in Annex A.
NOTE 3 The OLED lighting system consisting of OLED panels or modules is illustrated in Annex D.
NOTE 4 This document applies to OLED light sources (tiles, panels, modules) which are composed of OLED luminaires or OLED lamps, and it is intended so that the OLED light source in accordance with this document fits in
IEC 60598 (all parts) as a component of lighting equipment, in combination with other components.
NOTE 5 Where an appropriate Part 2 of IEC 62868 for an OLED light source does not exist, the nearest applicable Part 2 of IEC 62868 can be used as a guide to the requirements and tests.
