A4 1.1. During photometric measurement stray reflections shall be avoided by appropriate marking. a0c0
A4 1.2. In case the results of measurements should be challenged, measurements shall be carried out in such a way as to meet the following requirements: a0c0
A4 1.2.1. The distance of measurement shall be such that the law of the inverse of the square of the distance is applicable; a0c0
A4 1.2.2. The measuring equipment shall be such that the angular aperture of the receiver viewed from the reference centre of the lamp is comprised between 10 minutes and 1 degree; a0c0
A4 1.2.3. The intensity requirement for a particular direction of observation shall be deemed to be satisfied if that requirement is met in a direction deviating by not more than one-quarter of a degree from the direction of observation. a0c0
A4 1.3. In the case where the device 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 of the field of the reference axis specified by the manufacturer. a0c0
A4 1.4. The direction H = 0° and V = 0° corresponds to the reference axis. (On the vehicle it is horizontal, perpendicular to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle and oriented in the required direction of visibility.) It passes through the centre of reference. a0c0
A4 2. Tables of light distribution a0c0
A4 2.1. SM1 category of side-marker lamps a0c0
A4  a0c0
A4 2.1.1. Minimum values: a0c0
A4  0.6 cd at any point other than the reference axis, at which it shall be 4.0 cd. a0c0
A4 2.1.2. Maximum values: a0c0
A4  25.0 cd at any point a0c0
A4 2.2. SM2 category of side-marker lamps a0c0
A4  a0c0
A4 2.2.1. Minimum values: a0c0
A4  0.6 cd, at any point a0c0
A4 2.2.2. Maximum values: a0c0
A4  25.0 cd, at any point a0c0
A4 2.3. For SM1 and SM2 category of side-marker lamps it may be sufficient to check only five points selected by the Type Approval Authority. a0c0
A4 2.4. Within the field of light distribution shown above as a grid the light pattern should be substantially uniform, i.e. the light intensity in every direction within a part of the field formed by the grid lines shall meet at least the lowest minimum value applicable to the respective grid lines. a0c0
A4 2.5. However in the case where a device is intended to be installed with its H plane at a mounting height less than 750 mm above the ground, the photometric intensity is verified only up to an angle of 5° downwards. a0c0
A4 3. Photometric measurement of lamps a0c0
A4  The photometric performance shall be checked: a0c0
A4 3.1. For non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other): with the light sources present in the lamp, in accordance with the relevant subparagraph of paragraph 9.1. of this Regulation. a0c0
A4 3.2. For replaceable light sources: a0c0
A4  When equipped with light sources at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V, 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 (6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V). a0c0
A4  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 (6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V). a0c0
A4  The actual luminous fluxes of each light source used shall not deviate more than ±5 per cent from the mean value. Alternatively and in 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. a0c0
A4 3.3. For any signalling 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. a0c0
