Lamp controlgear – Part 2-9: Particular requirements for ballasts for discharge lamps (excluding fluorescent lamps)
|Publication Date:||1 November 2003|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to lamps):||29.140.99|
This part of IEC 61347 specifies particular safety requirements for ballasts for discharge lamps such as high-pressure mercury vapour, low-pressure sodium vapour, high-pressure sodium vapour and metal halide lamps. The standard covers inductive-type ballasts for use on a.c. supplies up to 1 000 V at 50 Hz or 60 Hz, associated with discharge lamps, having rated wattages, dimensions and characteristics as specified in IEC 60188, IEC 60192 and IEC 60662.
This standard applies to complete ballasts and to their component parts such as reactors, transformers and capacitors. Particular requirements for thermally protected ballasts are given in annex B.
NOTE 1 For certain types of discharge lamps, an ignitor is required.
NOTE 2 Ballasts for fluorescent lamps are covered by IEC 61347-2-8.
Performance requirements are the subject of IEC 60923.
