The ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 standard that you must know about the export of plant lights

The ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 standard puts forward safety requirements for the unique safety issues of gardening lamps and gardening lighting systems, let's take a look together.

ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 critical safety requirements

1. Wiring and connection method

In order to adapt to the growth of plants, gardening lamps generally adopt a design that can be frequently adjusted up, down or repositioned. ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 provides requirements for special wiring and connection methods to guide the flexible positioning of equipment in planting facilities.

2. Environmental conditions

The general climatic conditions of indoor crops are quite different, and it is necessary to create temperature conditions and high humidity environments. ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 only requires horticultural lighting to have a wet or humid environment rating, including provisions for elevated room temperature testing. Lighting equipment that meets ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 certification can be affixed with verification marks with the above characteristics.

3. Anti-seepage protection

Special equipment for indoor planting is more susceptible to infiltration of dust, humidity and moisture, which affects product reliability. ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 mentions the use of waterproof and dustproof (IP) rating tests to avoid the above risks. This test classifies and ranks the water and dust resistance of the equipment.

4. Photobiological effect

ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 mentions considerations related to the safety of photobiological effects, such as the potential hazards of the naked eye or skin exposed to horticultural lighting sources. The photobiological safety requirements of this standard are consistent with the IEC 62471 "Photobiological Safety Standard for Lamps and Luminaire Systems", providing detailed information and necessary protective measures to prevent potential hazards from light source exposure.

5. Polymeric materials under ultraviolet light

In certain growth environments, the polymeric materials used in the equipment will be exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun, such as in a greenhouse environment. This will cause the polymer material to become brittle and fragile, causing potential hazards. ANSI/CAN/UL 8800 stipulates that products need to use anti-UV materials to solve this problem.

6. Horticulture system

The horticulture system is a prefabricated space, display cabinet or open frame structure that can be used to grow plants to optimize plant growth. The system may contain pre-installed materials and equipment. After installation, these materials and equipment may be concealed, so they cannot be inspected at the final installation point. Such as lighting, blinds, controllers, control panels, pump motors, solenoid valves, reservoirs and other pipeline components, as well as heating and cooling components, can also be used as part of the plant growth management and control gardening system.

Virtue testing, focusing on global certification and testing of lighting products, efficient operation of safety laboratories, and full guidance by engineers, so that your plant lights can quickly pass certification and sell well in the market.
