Lamp controlgear - Part 2-7: Particular requirements for battery supplied electronic controlgear for emergency lighting (self-contained)
|Publication Date:||1 March 2012|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to lamps):||29.140.99|
This part of IEC 61347 specifies particular safety requirements for battery supplied electronic controlgear for maintained and non-maintained emergency lighting purposes.
It includes specific requirements for electronic controlgear and control units for self-contained luminaires for emergency lighting as specified by IEC 60598-2-22.
It is intended for controlgear for fluorescent lamps, but it is also applicable to other lamp types e.g. incandescent, high pressure discharge lamps and LEDs.
This standard covers the emergency mode operation of a controlgear. For controlgear with a combination of normal and emergency lighting operation, the normal lighting operation aspects are covered by the appropriate part 2 of IEC 61347.
DC supplied electronic controlgear for emergency lighting may or may not include batteries.
This standard also includes operational requirements for electronic controlgear, which, in the case of d.c. supplied electronic controlgear, are regarded as performance requirements. This is because non-operational emergency lighting equipment presents a safety hazard. It does not apply to d.c. supplied electronic controlgear for emergency lighting, which are intended for connection to a centralised emergency power supply system. A centralised emergency power system could be a central battery system.
NOTE Annex J of IEC 61347-2-3 applies to a.c., a.c./d.c. or d.c. supplied electronic controlgear for connection to centralised emergency power supply systems that are also intended for emergency lighting operations from a.c./d.c. supplies.
