Energy performance of lamp controlgear – Part 2: Controlgear for high intensity discharge lamps (excluding fluorescent lamps) – Method of measurement to determine the efficiency of the controlgear
|Publication Date:||1 April 2014|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to lamps):||29.140.99|
This part of the IEC 62442 series defines a measurement method of the power losses of electromagnetic controlgear, the total input power and the standby power of electronic controlgear for high intensity discharged lamps (excluding fluorescent lamps). Also a calculation method of the efficiency for controlgear for high intensity discharged lamp(s) is defined.
This International Standard applies to electrical controlgear - lamp circuits comprised solely of the controlgear and of the lamp(s).
NOTE Requirements for testing individual controlgear during production are not included.
It specifies the measurement method for the total input power, the standby power and the calculation method of the lamp controlgear efficiency for all controlgear sold for domestic and normal commercial purposes operating with high intensity discharge lamps.
This International Standard does not apply to:
- controlgear which form an integral part of lamps;
- controlgear circuits with capacitors connected in series;
- controllable wire-wound electromagnetic controlgear.
