Self-ballasted LED lamps for general lighting services with supply voltages > 50 V - Performance requirements

IEC 62612:2013 specifies the performance requirements, together with the test methods and conditions, required to show compliance of LED lamps with integral means for stable operation, intended for domestic and similar general lighting purposes, having: - a rated power up to 60 W; - a rated voltage of > 50 V a.c. up to 250 V a.c.; - a lamp cap as listed in IEC 62560. This first edition of IEC 62612 cancels and replaces IEC/PAS 62612. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to IEC/PAS 62612. a) The standard explicitly states that real life time tests are not part of the test regime. Instead, a period of up to 6 000 h is chosen in order to assess manufacturers' claims of maintenance. b) Technical features have been adapted to IEC/PAS 62717 (performance of LED modules) as far as possible. Examples are the family approach and the temperature measuring point. c) Marking requirements are shifted from the product to the packaging. d) The number of lamps to be tested is made test specific, not general. e) First requirements are given for setting the colour for colour adjustable lamps and the luminous flux level of dimmable lamps. f) The structure of tests is clearly divided between requirement and compliance. g) Statistical compliance is separated into individual and average. h) Light output requirements are extended to luminous intensity distribution, peak intensity, beam angle and efficacy. i) The use of the terms 'correlated colour temperature' and 'chromaticity coordinates' is corrected. j) The number of tolerance categories is reduced from 8 to 4, and split between initial and maintained values. k) Colour rendering is differently assessed at initial and maintained state. l) Three lumen maintenance categories are given instead of five. m) The endurance tests are completely re-established. n) The verification (formerly: assessment) clause is completed. o) Information for luminaire design is added. p) Stabilisation is more precise (Annex A on the method of measuring lamp characteristics) and extension is made for the additional photometric and colorimetric parameters. q) Annex B on measuring luminous flux is contained in Annex A. New Annex B provides the photometric code. r) Further annexes are added: Annex C and D for displacement factor, Annex E for life time metrics/reliability and Annex F for examples of LED dies and LED packages.

Lampes à LED autoballastées pour l'éclairage général avec des tensions d'alimentation > 50 V - Exigences de performances

La CEI 62612:2013 spécifie les exigences de performances, ainsi que les conditions et les méthodes d'essais, requises pour assurer la conformité des lampes à LED à dispositif de stabilisation incorporé, destinées à l'éclairage domestique et à l'éclairage général similaire, ayant: - une puissance assignée pouvant atteindre 60 W; - une tension assignée comprise entre 50 V c.a. et 250 V c.a.; - un culot de lampe tel qu'indiqué dans la CEI 62560. Cette première édition de la CEI 62612 annule et remplace la CEI/PAS 62612. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à la CEI/PAS 62612. a) La norme indique explicitement que les essais de durée de vie réelle ne font pas partie du régime d'essais. Au lieu de cela, on choisit une période pouvant atteindre 6 000 h pour évaluer les déclarations de maintien données par un fabricant. b) Des caractéristiques techniques ont été adaptées autant que possible à la CEI/PAS 62717 (performances des modules de LED). Des exemples incluent l'utilisation de familles et le point de mesure de la température. c) Les exigences de marquage s'appliquent au boîtier et non au produit. d) Le nombre de lampes à soumettre aux essais est spécifique aux essais. e) Les premières exigences sont données pour régler la couleur des lampes à couleur ajustable et le niveau de flux lumineux des lampes à variation d'intensité. f) La structure des essais est divisée entre exigences et conformité. g) La conformité statistique est divisée en individuelle et moyenne. h) Les exigences sur la lumière de sortie sont étendues à la distribution d'intensité lumineuse, l'intensité de crête, l'angle de faisceau et l'efficacité. i) L'utilisation des termes 'température de couleur proximale' et 'coordonnées trichromatiques' est corrigée. j) Le nombre de catégories de tolérance est réduit de 8 à 4 et divisé entre les valeurs initiales et valeurs de maintien. k) Le rendu des couleurs est évalué différemment à l'état initial et à l'état de maintien. l) Trois catégories de maintien de flux lumineux sont données au lieu de cinq. m) Les essais d'endurance sont entièrement rétablis. n) L'article sur la vérification (auparavant appelée évaluation) est complété. o) Des informations pour la conception de luminaires sont ajoutées. p) La stabilisation est plus précise (Annexe A sur la méthode de mesure des caractéristiques des lampes) et des paramètres photométriques et colorimétriques supplémentaires ont été ajoutés. q) L'Annexe B sur la mesure du flux lumineux est incluse dans l'Annexe A. Une nouvelle Annexe B fournit le code photométrique. r) D'autres annexes ont été ajoutées. L'Annexe C et l'Annexe D sur le facteur de déplacement, l'Annexe E sur les valeurs et la fiabilité de la durée de vie et l'Annexe F qui donne des exemples de puces de LED et de boîtier de LED.

The variation of the chromaticity coordinates values of the LED lamp shall be within

colour variation category 6.

NOTE Category 6 implies a 6-step MacAdam ellipse centred on the rated colour target.

Z1.3.5 - Power factor

LED lamps operating on direct mains shall be in accordance with 8.1 and 8.2. The

distortion shall be measured according EN 61000-3-2 and the power factor λ be
calculated according to the relation given in D.1.

NOTE In view of future regulations, EN 62612 defines - the primary metric displacement factor and its

associated measurement method and recommended values – instead of the composite power factor metric.

Definitions related to power quantities are given in Table 2 of IEC/TR 61000-1-7:2016.

Z2 Requirements for non-directional LED lamps
Z2.1 Lamp efficacy requirements for non-directional LED lamps

The requirements of 8.1 and 9.1 apply in combination with the limits in Annex II, article

1 of commission regulation (EU) No 244/2009.
Z2.2 Functionality requirements for non-directional LED lamps
The requirements of Z1.3 apply.
Annex A.1 Replace the entire A.1 in EN 62612:2013 and EN 62612:2013/A1:2017 by:
A.1 General

Unless otherwise specified, all measurements shall be made in a draught-free room at

a temperature of 25 °C with a tolerance of ± 1 °C, a relative humidity of 65 %
maximum and steady state operation of the LED lamp.

If not exempted by specific clause, lamps shall be operated free burning in a vertical

position, cap-up, unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer or responsible
vendor.
The test voltage shall be the voltage as determined in A.2.4.

LED lamps do not require any ageing prior to testing. However, the manufacturer may

define an aging period up to 1 000 h.
For general conditions of photometric measurements see EN 13032-4.

For directional LED lamps the useful luminous flux is obtained by luminous intensity

integration according to EN 13032-4:2015, 6.3 "Partial luminous flux". Alternative

measurement methods may be used if they can be shown to give equivalent results

for the product being tested, if necessary by applying correction factors. However, the

lamp reference measurement position is vertical base-up operated in free air. In case

of doubt a goniophotometry measurement in accordance with EN 13032-4:2015, 6.3
shall be leading.

NOTE 1 Useful luminous flux measurements with lamps operating horizontally are often easier to carry

out. Examples of alternative measurement methods are.
• For small beam angles shine into integrating sphere.
• Mount lamp on internal surface of integrating sphere.
• Mount lamp inside integrating sphere with screening (LM-20 technique).

• Illuminate a surface and measure the illuminance across the surface with a photometer.

• Illuminate a surface and measure the surface luminance with a luminance camera.

• Illuminate a translucent screen and measure the surface luminance of the rear side with a luminance

camera.

For non-directional LED lamps the total luminous flux shall be measured according to

EN 13032-4. Also the partial luminous flux within a solid angle of π sr of the LED

lamps shall be evaluated to check the non-directionality.

EN 62612:2013/A11:2017

Once the non-directionality is verified for one lamp, for lamps of the same type, only

the total luminous flux has to be measured.

Luminous intensity distribution shall be measured in accordance with EN 13032-4 and

EN 61341.
NOTE 2 EN13032-4 refers to EN 61341 for beam angle evaluation.
