This document describes the procedures by which incandescent lamps can be operated under controlled conditions to obtain optimally comparable data on individual lamp life, changes in light output, and other parameters that vary during the life of the lamp. It describes the procedures to be followed and the precautions to be observed in obtaining uniform and reproducible measurements during life testing of incandescent filament lamps under standard conditions. This document covers general service incandescent lamps, tungsten-halogen lamps, series airport markers, and street lighting lamps.
