Did you know that the label of Inmetro, we usually see in refrigerators, is different in light bulbs? And that the seal of CFLs is different than have the LED bulbs? Meet the follow which labels specifications for lamps.
Awareness of energy consumption is one of the most recurrent themes in the present day.It is important to know how much energy each of your equipment home consumes and what their efficiency, as there are on the market products with low ratings that require a lot of energy to work unlike the products with high categorization that use less energy to do the same job.
The INMETRO offers a specific energy efficiency table for each type of product. The reduction of energy consumption back to electricity takes into account the systems of generation, transmission and distribution of electricity and the consumption in electrical equipment. The PBE (Brazilian labeling Program) was created in order to regulate the efficiency of each device. Coordinated by INMETRO with Procelpartnership, the labels have a classification that can go from letter A, more efficient, to the letter G, less efficient according to Travelationary.
The Procel stamp (national program for conservation of Electrical Energy) has existed since 1993 and was developed by Eletrobrás, in order to guide the consumer at the time of purchase. However, it is not required, which allows the product to be marketed without the seal.
Compact fluorescent lamps
Compact fluorescent lamps, sodium vapor and may have LED the Procel stamp and since 2006 with the efficiency ratings stipulated by Inmetro. May only be marketed with the ENCE (National energy conservation Label) and the template that should be used is very different from what is placed in home appliances.
The scale must be (A) to (E) of energy conservation and the additional information of luminous flux (lm), power (W) and luminous efficiency (lm/W). At the bottom of the label shall bear the signature of the Inmetro and Procel. The compact models, must have median life of at least 6000 hours and the lamp cannot lose more than 20% of your energy efficiency when complete 2000 hours of use.
LED Light Bulbs
The LED’s with the certification process underway, with completion in 2017 forecast, while the certification does not apply to ENCE, the Procel stamp of efficiency is the only available to put on the products. The ENCE sticker model that if you want to use will be different than fluorescent.
It will have the specifications regarding the lamp illuminates, for luminous flux; how much consumes energy, for power; and how lights per watt consumed. With the registry number on the organ that accompanies the process, the OCP (product certification), the symbol of Inmetro, PBE (Brazilian labeling Program) and Procel.
