Electrical installations for lighting and beaconing of aerodromes - Constant current regulators

IEC 61822:2009 specifies the requirements for a Constant Current Regulator (CCR) having a nominal output of 6,6 A for use in an aeronautical ground lighting constant current series circuit. However, CCRs may be manufactured which have a different power rating (kVA) and current steps than those specified in this standard in order to be used on existing circuits. This standard should be applied where appropriate for these CCRs. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. It is a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: a) revision and update of terms and definitions; b) addition of new paragraphs, such as 'Nominal output current range and tolerances'; c) modification of some paragraphs, such as those related to 'Local control' and 'Remote control'; d) deletion of some paragraphs, in particular 'Power transformers' and 'Output current indicator'.

Installations électriques pour l'éclairage et le balisage des aérodromes - Régulateurs de courant constant

La CEI 61822:2009 spécifie les exigences pour un Régulateur de Courant Constant (RCC) ayant une sortie nominale de 6,6 A pour une utilisation dans un circuit série à courant constant utilisé pour l'éclairage et le balisage aéronautique au sol. Cependant, les régulateurs de courant constant (RCC) peuvent être conçus avec une puissance assignée (kVA) et des échelons de courant différents de ceux spécifiés dans la présente norme afin d'être utilisés dans les circuits existants. Il convient que la présente norme soit appliquée le cas échéant pour ces RCC. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: a) révision et mise à jour des termes et définitions; b) ajout de certains paragraphes tels que 'Plage et tolérances du courant de sortie nominal'; c) modification de certains paragraphes tels que ceux relatifs à la 'Commande locale' et 'Commande à distance'; d) suppression de certains paragraphes notamment 'Transformateur de puissance' et 'Indication du courant de sortie'.

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS FOR LIGHTING

CONSTANT CURRENT REGULATORS
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 61822 has been prepared by IEC Technical Committee 97:

Electrical installations for lighting and beaconing of aerodromes.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002. It is a technical

revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) revision and update of terms and definitions;

b) addition of new paragraphs, such as "Nominal output current range and tolerances";

c) modification of some paragraphs, such as those related to "Local control" and "Remote

control";

d) deletion of some paragraphs, in particular "Power transformers" and "Output current

indicator".
