Although we endeavour to maintain an up-to-date catalogue, on occasion we may not have the latest version of a document, including where it has not yet been provided through an international feed. Users of British Standards should make sure that they possess the latest amendments or editions l t is the constant aim of BSI to improve the quality of our products and services We would be grateful if anyone finding an inaccuracy or ambiguity while using this British Standard would inform the Secretary of the technical committee responsible, the identity of which can be found on the inside front cover Tel: Equipment switched off until the flnal hour.

Standards are also available from the BST website at httn: The chromaticity for the colours of the colour class C2 shall conform 10 Table 3. You may wish to search for a more up to date equivalent.

Their committees work with the manufacturing and service industries, government, businesses and 122966 to facilitate the production of British, European and International standards. The luminance ralio values shalt be maintained for all illuminances between Ix and 40 Ix. The luminance, measured in cdlm2, is the light intensity per illuminated area in this case the equivalent area of each element Figure A.

These effects shall be tested by either conducting the dry bd test or the solar radiation tesl for Class T1 only.

In generallhe perceived size is larger than the physicat size. Duration of condilioning 90 min in each of 3 axes.
