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 itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

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 62560 has been prepared by subcommittee 34A: Lamps, of IEC

technical committee 34: Lamps and related equipment.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

INTRODUCTION

There will be and are already LED products in the market which substitute existing lamps,

either as retrofit mains voltage incandescent or self-ballasted fluorescent lamps or as

replacement for tungsten halogen lamps below 50 V.

The present document takes up the supply voltage range from > 50 V up to 250 V. A proposal

for a safety standard for LED lamps with voltages ≤ 50 V may follow in due time.

Future work will also consequently comprise performance standards for all kind of LED lamps,

including minimum photometric requirements for type testing.

Due to the urgent need of establishing this standard, it will be a stand-alone standard for the

time being, not excluding a future relocation as a part of IEC 60968, self-ballasted lamps.

SELF-BALLASTED LED-LAMPS FOR GENERAL
LIGHTING SERVICES BY VOLTAGE > 50 V –
SAFETY SPECIFICATIONS
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies the safety and interchangeability requirements, together

with the test methods and conditions required to show compliance of LED-lamps with

integrated means for stable operation (self-ballasted LED-lamps), intended for domestic and

similar general lighting purposes, having:
– a rated wattage up to 60 W;
– a rated voltage of > 50 V up to 250 V;
– caps according to Table 1.
The requirements of this standard relate only to type testing.

Recommendations for whole product testing or batch testing are identical to those given in

Annex C of IEC 62031.

NOTE Where in this standard the term “lamp(s)” is used, it is understood to stand for “self-ballasted LED-

lamp(s)”, except where it is obviously assigned to other types of lamps.

3.7
type
lamps that have an identical electrical rating and a similar cap
3.8
type test

test or series of tests made on a type test sample for the purpose of checking compliance of

the design of a given product with the requirements of the relevant standard
3.9
type test sample

sample consisting of one or more similar units submitted by the manufacturer or responsible

vendor for the purpose of the type test
4 General requirements and general test requirements

4.1 The lamps shall be so designed and constructed that in normal use they function reliably

and cause no danger to the user or surroundings.
In general, compliance is checked by carrying out all the tests specified.

4.2 Self-ballasted LED-lamps are non-repairable, factory-sealed units. They shall normally

not be opened for any tests. In the case of doubt based on the inspection of the lamp and the

examination of the circuit diagram, and in agreement with the manufacturer or responsible

vendor, either the output terminals shall be short-circuited or, in agreement with the

manufacturer, lamps specially prepared so that a fault condition can be simulated shall be

submitted for testing (see Clause 13).

4.3 In general, all tests are carried out on each type of lamp or, where a range of similar

lamps is involved, for each wattage in the range or on a representative selection from the

range, as agreed with the manufacturer.

4.4 When the lamp fails safely during one of the tests, it is replaced, provided that no fire,

smoke or flammable gas is produced. Further requirements on failing safe are given in Clause

12.
5 Marking

5.1 Lamps shall be clearly and durably marked with the following mandatory markings:

a) mark of origin (this may take the form of a trademark, the manufacturer’s name or the

name of the responsible vendor);
b) rated voltage or voltage range (marked “V” or “volts”);
c) rated wattage (marked “W” or “watts”);
d) rated frequency (marked in “Hz”).

5.2 In addition, the following information shall be given by the lamp manufacturer on the

lamp or immediate lamp wrapping or container or in installation instructions.

a) Burning position, if restricted, shall be marked with the appropriate symbol. Symbol

examples are shown in Annex B.
b) rated current (marked “A” or “ampere”);

c) “For lamps with a weight significantly higher than that of the lamps for which they are a

replacement, attention should be drawn to the fact that the increased weight may reduce

the mechanical stability of certain luminaires and lampholders and may impair contact

making and lamp retention.”
---------------------- Page: 17 ----------------------
SIST EN 62560:2013
– 10 – 62560  IEC:2011

d) Special conditions or restrictions which shall be observed for lamp operation, for example

operation in dimming circuits. Where lamps are not suitable for dimming, the following

symbol in Figure 1 may be used:
IEC 928/99
Figure 1 – Dimming not allowed
e) For eye protection, see requirements of IEC/TR 62471-2
5.3 Compliance is checked by the following:
Presence and legibility of the marking required in 5.1 – by visual inspection.

The durability of the marking is checked by trying to remove it by rubbing lightly for 15 s with

a piece of cloth soaked with water and, after drying, for a further 15 s with a piece of cloth

soaked with hexane. The marking shall be legible after the test.
Availability of information required in 5.2 – by visual inspection.
6 Interchangeability
6.1 Cap interchangeability

Interchangeability shall be ensured by the use of caps in accordance with IEC 60061-1 and

gauges in accordance with IEC 60061-3, see Table 1.
