1. MEASUREMENT METHODS
ANNEX 3
PHOTOMETRIC MEASUREMENTS
1.1. 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°;
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

3.2. For Replaceable Light Sources:
When equipped with light sources at 6.75V, 13.5V or 28.0V the luminous intensity values
produced shall be corrected. For filament lamps the correction factor is the ratio between the
reference luminous flux and the mean value of the luminous flux found at the voltage applied
(6.75V, 13.5V or 28.0V).
For LED light sources the correction factor is the ratio between the objective luminous flux and
the mean value of the luminous flux found at the voltage applied (6.75V, 13.5V or 28.0V).
The actual luminous fluxes of each light source used shall not deviate more than ±5% from the
mean value. Alternatively and in the case of filament lamps only, 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.
3.3. For any cornering lamp except those equipped with filament lamp(s), the luminous intensities,
measured after 1min and after 10min of operation, shall comply with the minimum and
maximum requirements. The luminous intensity distribution after 1min and after 10min of
operation shall be calculated from the luminous intensity distribution measured after
photometric stability has occurred by applying at each test point the ratio of luminous intensities
measured at 45° L 2.5° D for a left-side lamp (the L angle should be substituted for the R angle
for a right-side lamp):
(a)
(b)
(c)
After 1min;
After 10min; and
After photometric stability has occurred.
Photometric stability has occurred means the variation of the luminous intensity for the
specified test point is less than 3% within any 15min period.

ANNEX 5
