Aircraft Fluorescent Lighting Ballast/Fixture Safety Design Standard
The purpose of this standard is to recommend minimum performance requirements to assist the specification writer in establishing a failsafe airplane interior light assembly design. This standard relates to the design of fluorescent lamp ballasts, lampholders, fixtures, and installation of the same.
Rationale: This document has been revised to provide better guidance in designing failsafe light assemblies. It has also improved defining test requirements along with incorporating lessons learned from industry.
