Energy performance of lamp controlgear – Part 3: Controlgear for halogen lamps and LED modules – 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 for the power losses of magnetic transformers and the power losses with the standby power of electronic convertor for halogen lamps and LED modules.
Also a calculation method of the efficiency for the mentioned controlgear for halogen lamps and LED modules is defined.
This part of IEC 62442 applies to electrical controlgear - lamp circuits comprised solely of the controlgear and of the lamp(s).
For multipurpose power supplies only the lighting part will be considered.
NOTE 1 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 controlgear efficiency for all controlgear sold for domestic and normal commercial purposes operating with halogen lamps and LED modules.
This part of IEC 62442 does not apply to:
- controlgear which form an integral part of lamps;
- controlgear circuits with capacitors connected in series;
- controllable wire-wound electromagnetic controlgear.
