For the purposes of compliance and verification of compliance with the requirements of this Regulation, measurements shall be made using a reliable, accurate and reproducible measurement procedure that takes into account the generally recognised state-of-the-art measurement methods, including methods set out in documents the reference numbers of which have been published for that purpose in the Official Journal of the European Union.

2.

Measurements of on-mode power consumption referred to in point 1 of Annex II

(a) General conditions:

(i) measurements shall be made at an ambient temperature of 23 °C +/– 5 °C;

(ii) measurements shall be made using a dynamic broadcast-content video signal representing typical broadcast TV content; The measurement shall be the average power consumed over ten consecutive minutes;

(iii) measurements shall be made after the television has been in the off-mode for a minimum of 1 hour immediately followed by a minimum of 1 hour in the on-mode and shall be completed before a maximum of 3 hours in on-mode. The relevant video signal shall be displayed during the entire on-mode duration. For televisions that are known to stabilise within 1 hour, these durations may be reduced if the resulting measurement can be shown to be within 2 % of the results that would otherwise be achieved using the durations described here;

▼M2 —————

▼B

(v) measurements shall be made with the Automatic Brightness Control function, if such a function exists, made inactive. If the Automatic Brightness Control function exists and cannot be made inactive, then the measurements shall be performed with the light entering directly into the ambient light sensor at a level of 300 lux, or more.

(b) Conditions for measuring the on-mode power consumption of televisions:

(i) television sets without forced menu: The power consumption shall be measured in the on-mode condition of the television as delivered by the manufacturer, that is, the brightness controls of the television shall be in the position adjusted by the manufacturer for the end user;

(ii) television sets with forced menu: The power consumption shall be measured in the ‘home-mode’ condition;

(iii) television monitors without forced menu: The television monitor shall be connected to an appropriate tuner. The power consumption shall be measured in the on-mode condition of the television as delivered by the manufacturer, that is, the brightness controls of the television monitor shall be in the position adjusted by the manufacturer for the end user. The power consumption of the tuner is not relevant for the measurements of on-mode power consumption of the television monitor;

(iv) television monitors with forced menu: The television monitor shall be connected to an appropriate tuner. The power consumption shall be measured in the ‘home-mode’ condition.

4.
