Annex ZZ
(informative)
Relationship between this European standard and the safety
objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU [2014 OJ L96] aimed to be
covered
This European standard has been prepared under a Commission’s
standardisation request relating to harmonised standards in the field of
the Low Voltage Directive, M/511, to provide one voluntary means of
conforming to safety objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU of the European
Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonisation
of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the
market of electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage
limits [2014 OJ L96].
Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union
under that Directive, compliance with the normative clauses of this
standard given in Table ZZ.1 confers, within the limits of the scope of this
standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding safety
objectives of that Directive, and associated EFTA regulations.

maintained.
2. Protection against hazards
arising from the electrical
equipment
Measures of a technical nature
shall be laid down in accordance
with point 1, in order to ensure
that:
a) persons and domestic Clauses 4, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14,
15 and 17
animals are adequately
protected against the danger of
physical injury or other harm
which might be caused by direct
or indirect contact;
b) temperatures, arcs or Clauses 13, 15, 18, 19, 20 and
radiation which would cause a
danger, are not produced;
c) persons, domestic animals Clauses 4, 13, 16, 19 and 22
and property are adequately
protected against non-electrical
dangers caused by the electrical
equipment which are revealed
by experience;
d) the insulation is suitable for Clauses 10, 12, 13, 16, 18, 20
foreseeable conditions. and 21
3. Protection against hazards
which may be caused by
external influences on the
electrical equipment
Technical measures shall be
laid down in accordance with
point 1, in order to ensure that
the electrical equipment:
a) meets the expected Clauses 8, 9, 13, 16 and 22
mechanical requirements in
such a way that persons,
domestic animals and property
are not endangered;
b) is resistant to non-mechanical Clauses 13, 15,18, 20 and 21
influences in expected
environmental conditions, in
such a way that persons,
domestic animals and property
are not endangered;

_____________
3 Terms and definitions
Add, at the end of Clause 3, the following new terms and definitions:
3.30
rated voltage

voltage declared by the manufacturer to indicate the highest working voltage for which the

lampholder is intended
[SOURCE: IEC 60838-1:2016, 3.1]
3.31
working voltage

highest r.m.s. voltage that may occur across any insulation, transients being disregarded,

both when the lamp is operating under normal conditions and when the lamp is removed

[SOURCE: IEC 60838-1:2016, 3.2]
3.32
rated current

current declared by the manufacturer to indicate the highest current for which the lampholder

is intended

crit

frequency at which the reduction of the breakdown voltage of a clearance begins (occurs)

Note 1 to entry: ƒ ≈ 0,2/d [MHz] where d (in mm) is the clearance according to Table 3 (basic or supplementary

crit
insulation and reinforced insulation respectively) disregarding the frequency.

ignition voltage
peak voltage applied to ignite a discharge lamp
[SOURCE: IEC 61347-1:2015, 3.46]
3.34.1
ignition pulse voltage

peak ignition voltage with a total duration of ≤ 750 µs (summation of all pulses durations)

within 10 ms, with the duration time (width) of each pulse being measured at the level of 50 %

of the maximum absolute peak value

Note 1 to entry: Ignition pulse waveforms, which are considered as ignition pulse voltage, should not contain any

dominant frequency above 30 kHz or should be usually highly damped (after 20 μs the peak voltage level should be

less than one half of the maximum peak voltage). For the assessment of the dominant frequency IEC 60664-

4:2005, Annex E should be consulted.
