BIS on Solar Photovoltaic Modules

Citing urgency in the need for maintaining quality of solar equipment being deployed in the country, ministry of new and renewable energy (MNRE) has brought forward the implementation date of a quality control order that requires sellers and manufacturers of solar photovoltaic modules to have their products registered under parameters set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

Last year, MNRE issued the Quality Control (Requirement for Compulsory Registration under BIS Act) Order 2017, which was supposed to come into effect a year from September 5, 2017, when it was published in the Gazette.

The order applies to both domestic and international solar manufacturers selling their products in India.

“We have pushed ahead the date because we want to ensure that whatever comes into the country is of quality,” said a senior government official. A notification dated March 26 said that the date for enforcement of the order “should be brought forward in order to ensure that quality control benefits the industry at the earliest possible.”

For supplies from April 1 to June 30 this year(2018), the representatives of the manufacturers would submit samples to an authorised lab for testing and give a self-certification that the modules adheres to the prescribed standards, the order said.

Solar developers and manufacturers will be liable to penalties as per the provisions of the order if they are not keeping up with the BIS specified quality standards. “If the developer himself buys sub-standard product, he will come into the picture and be liable to penalty,” said another official on the condition of anonymity.

Electronic Manufacturing, Make in India and BIS

Make in India is the new watchword for manufacturing industry in India. Foxconn has already pledged 12000/- crores for electronics manufacturing industry.



The stage of electronic manufacturing today  is exactly at that stage where IT was around 1987-88.This is the most optimum time to enter the electronics industry.
LED Lighting is one of the emerging technology in electronics manufacturing.
I am aware of about 6 major chinese companies who are setting up JVs in housing, components in Navi Mumbai, Gujarat and Delhi.
What are you waiting for? You can start the process rightaway.In fact the present government is giving host of benefits in terms of subsidies, electronic development funds in R&D etc. Please start.
Any help in terms of plant, machinery, plant layout, costing , business d
evelopment if required please let us know.
Any enquiry regarding BIS matters are also welcome. Please understand that the process for getting certificate is taking time so apply now if not done.
I am also requesting the govt. agencies in DEITY through this mail to kindly consider the application who have already applied toBIS and are awaiting the certification number which will take its own time due to accumulation of large number of files and want of manpower at BIS office.
Wishing you all joyous festive time ahead and happy manufacturing.

Common Lamp Types

Incandescent Lamps
The incandescent lamp dates back over one hundred years to Thomas Edison’s original invention. Essentially, an incandescent lamp produces light when its filament is heated by an electric current, causing it to glow or “incandesce.” Normally, the filament is made of a coiled or doubly-coiled tungsten wire.

The advantages of incandescent lamps include a low initial cost, high color rendering ability and general ease of operation; dimming is easy and a variety of wattages can be used in the same socket.

There are hundreds of variations of wattages, sizes, shapes, and colors. The everyday incandescent lamp is called a “general service” lamp or an “A” lamp.

Tungsten halogen lamps are basically incandescent lamps that operate at higher pressure and temperature than standard incandescent lamps, producing a whiter light and longer life. The “tungsten” part of the name comes from the filament material – tungsten. The halogen part refers to the type of chemical additive that bestows the lamp with its special properties.
Another way halogen is an improvement over standard incandescent is in light output. Incandescent lamps have a tendency as they burn to slowly deposit their allotment of tungsten onto the glass bulb, turning the bulb black. This black coating blocks some of the light from coming out of the bulb. Eventually, the filament gets thinner, breaks, and the lamp fails.

The halogen gas in the lamp significantly reduces the deposition of evaporated tungsten onto the glass bulb. No bulb blackening = more light!

Fluorescent Lamps
Fluorescent lamps produce light by passing an electric arc through a mixture of an inert gas (argon or argon / krypton) and mercury (a tiny amount). The mercury radiates ultraviolet energy that is transformed to visible light by the PHOSPHOR coating on the bulb.
Fluorescent lamps are more efficient at producing light compared to standard incandescent or even halogen. In fact, their efficacy is 4-8 times that of the filament sources. Fluorescent lamps have life ratings from 7,500 hours to 24,000 hours, with a few even beyond that. Life is dependent on many variables such as lamp type, ballast type, operating environment and how often they are switched on and off.

There are two general categories of fluorescent lamp:
Linear Fluorescent
Linear fluorescent lamps come in a range of wattages and sizes – 4 and 8 foot lamps are most common for commercial uses such as office buildings and warehouses.

Compact Fluorescent (CFL)
COMPACT FLUORESCENT LAMPS (CFLS) operate on the same principle as regular fluorescent, but are more “compact.” CFLs became popular in the mid-to-late 1980′s. The original concept was to provide an energy efficient replacement for incandescent lamps.

An integrated type of CFL combines the lamp and ballast in one unit, which can be screwed into a standard incandescent lamp socket.

Other Fluorescent lamps
Some fluorescent lamps are circular, and use designation of “FC”, and others are bent into a U-shape. These use a designation of “FB” for bent.
High Intensity Discharge Lamps
HID lamps produce light a different way than the previous lamp types examined. HID light is produced directly from the arc itself. Due to the high pressure under which these types operate, the arc becomes extremely intense. Once turned off, it must cool down to reduce the arc tube pressure before the arc can restrike.
This arc is relatively short (compared to a fluorescent lamp) and therefore it is considered a point source.
Since these sources use an arc, they need a piece of auxiliary equipment called a BALLAST.

There are three basic types of HID lamps, all operating on the same general principle but producing dramatically different results:

Mercury Lamps
Metal Halide
High Pressure Sodium (HPS)

LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are electronic light sources. An LED is a semiconductor device that emits visible light of a certain color. LED lighting is fundamentally different from conventional light sources such as incandescent, fluorescent, and gas-discharge lamps. An LED uses no mercury, no lead, no gas or filament, it has no fragile glass bulb, and it has no failure-prone moving parts.

An LED is a type of solid-state diode that emits light when voltage is applied. LEDs become illuminated by the movement of electrons through a semiconductor material.

LED Facts

Up to 50,000 hours or more.
Light output remains constant over time, only decreasing towards the end of the rated lifetime.
The shade of white light appears clear and consistent over time.
Light comes on instantly when turned on.
when dimmed with approved, tested dimmers for LED use.

Different types of Light Fixtures

A light fixture (US English), light fitting (UK English), or luminaire is an electrical device used to create artificial light by use of an electric lamp. All light fixtures have a fixture body and a light socket to hold the lamp and allow for its replacement. The term luminaire is recommended by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for technical use.
Light fixtures are classified by how the fixture is installed, the light function or lamp type.
There are many different fixture types that one can use to deliver the general, task, or accent light one needs. Below is an overview of the types of fixtures available:

Free-standing or portable

Table lamp fixtures, standard lamp fixtures, and office task light luminaires.
Balanced-arm lamp is a spot light with an adjustable arm such as anglepoise or Luxo L1.
Gooseneck lamp


Recessed light — the protective housing is concealed behind a ceiling or wall, leaving only the fixture itself exposed. The ceiling-mounted version is often called a downlight.
“Cans” with a variety of lamps — this term is jargon for inexpensive downlighting products that are recessed into the ceiling, or sometimes for uplights placed on the floor. The name comes from the shape of the housing. The term “pot lights” is often used in Canada and parts of the US.
Cove light — recessed into the ceiling in a long box against a wall.
Torch lamp, torchière, or floor lamp.
Troffer — recessed fluorescent light fixtures, usually rectangular in shape to fit into a drop ceiling grid.

Surface-mounted light — the finished housing is exposed, not flush with surface
Pendant light — suspended from the ceiling with a chain or pipe
Sconce — provide up or down lights; can be used to illuminate artwork, architectural details; commonly used in hallways or as an alternative to overhead lighting.
Track lighting fixture — individual fixtures (“track heads”) can be positioned anywhere along the track, which provides electric power.
Under-cabinet light — mounted below kitchen wall cabinets
Ceiling fan – May sometimes have a light, often referred to as a light kit mounted to it.
Emergency lighting or exit sign — connected to a battery backup or to an electric circuit that has emergency power if the mains power fails.
High- and low-bay lighting — typically used for general lighting for industrial buildings and often big-box stores
Strip lights or Industrial lighting — often long lines of fluorescent lamps used in a warehouse or factory

Outdoor lighting and landscape lighting — used to illuminate walkways, parking lots, roadways, building exteriors and architectural details, gardens, and parks.
High-mast, usually pole- or stanchion-mounted — for landscape, roadways, and parking lots
Bollard — A type of architectural outdoor lighting that is a short, upright ground-mounted unit typically used to provide cutoff type illumination for egress lighting, to light walkways, steps, or other pathways.
Solar lamp
Street light
Yard light

Special-purpose lights

Accent light — Any directional light which highlights an object or attracts attention to a particular area
Background light — for use in video production
Christmas lights-also called fairy lights or twinkle lights and are often used at Christmas and other holidays for decoration.
Flood light
Safelight (for use in a darkroom)
Safety lamp (for use in coal mines)
Searchlight (for military and advertising use)
Security lighting
Step light
Strobe light
Traffic light
Stage lighting instrument

Common LED lights fitting types – Caps & Bases

 The light fitting, or as otherwise called the socket, is a type of electrical connector used for installing the light bulbs.

The name “fitting” is often used only for the cap or base; the part of the lamp that secures the light bulb into its holder and provides the connection to the power.

Due to a large number of different fitting types available in lighting today, this section is only designed to help you identify the most common fittings that you may require for easily replacing existing lights with LED light bulbs.

Bayonet Cap

With its familiar “push and twist” action, “bayonet cap” (also known as BC or B22d) is used on most regular light bulbs. It is 22mm diameter and with two locating lugs.

The “small bayonet cap” (SBC or B15d) is very similar but only 15mm across.bayonet

Although generally used for mains voltage lamps, the SBC fitting can also be found in a very small number of specialist low voltage halogen lamps.

There are also many other “BC” variants including the 3-pin BC, B22d-3 sometimes used on Fireglow lamps but perhaps more commonly on High pressure mercury lamps for industrial applications. The BY22d is used on some low-pressure sodium (SOX) lamps.

Edison Screw Cap

Named after the pioneering inventor Thomas Edison, the Edison Screw or “ES” lamp fitting is used worldwide in a vast range of applications.

The most popular ES or E27 fitting is 27mm diameter and is widely used in b


oth the US and Europe. The SES is often used for smaller decorative fittings, chandeliers, and appliance bulbs – predomina

ntly in the UK and Europe. CES is most frequently used in the US and Canada, especially for candle bulbs. The MES fitting is sometimes used in large chandeliers containing perhaps dozens of small lamps.

The GES is rarely used in domestic applications and is typically for lamps over 500W. This must not be confused with the extremely similar US standard 39mm diameter E39 or Mogul Screw fitting.


The most common halogen spots are either push fit (GU4 or GU5.3), low voltage type or twist and lock (GU10 or GZ10) mains versions. PLEASE NOTE the subtle difference between GU10 and GZ10. The GU10 has a bevel around the base but the GZ10 has a square corner. This stops the GZ10 being used in a fitting designed for a GU10 but allows the GU10 to be used in either.
