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 61347-2-3 has been prepared by subcommittee 34C: Auxiliaries

for lamps, of IEC technical committee 34: Lamps and related equipment.

This standard shall be used in conjunction with IEC 61347-1 (2007) and its Amendment 1

(2010).

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2000, its Amendment 1

(2004) and its Amendment 2 (2006) ), IEC 61347-2-4 published in 2000, IEC 61347-2-5

published in 2000 and IEC 61347-2-6 published in 2000. This second edition constitutes a

technical revision.

INTRODUCTION

This second edition of IEC 61347-2-3, published in conjunction with IEC 61347-1, represents

an review of the first edition of IEC 61347-2-3. The formatting into separately published parts

provides for ease of future amendments and revisions. Additional requirements will be added

as and when a need for them is recognized.

This standard, and the parts which make up IEC 61347-2, in referring to any of the clauses of

IEC 61347-1, specify the extent to which such a clause is applicable and the order in which

the tests are to be performed; they also include additional requirements, as necessary. All

parts which make up IEC 61347-2 are intended to be self-contained and, therefore, do not

include references to each other. However, for the case of emergency lighting lamp control

gear, some cross-referencing has been necessary.

Where the requirements of any of the clauses of IEC 61347-1 are referred to in this standard

by the phrase ”The requirements of clause n of IEC 61347-1 apply”, this phrase is interpreted

as meaning that all requirements of the clause in question of part 1 apply, except any which

are clearly inapplicable to the specific type of lamp control gear covered by this particular part

of IEC 61347-2.

5 General notes on tests

The requirements of Clause 5 of 61347-1 apply together with the following additional

requirement:
The following number of specimens shall be submitted for testing:
– one unit for the tests of Clause 6 to 12 and 15 to 22;

– one unit for the test of Clause 14 (additional units or components, where necessary, may

be required in consultation with the manufacturer).

Tests to meet the safety requirements for a.c./d.c. supplied electronic control gear for

emergency lighting are made under the conditions specified in Annex J.
6 Classification
The requirements of Clause 6 of IEC 61347-1 apply.
7 Marking
Control gear which forms an integral part of the luminaire need not be marked.
7.1 Mandatory markings

In accordance with the requirements of 7.2 of IEC 61347-1, control gear, other than integral

control gear, shall be clearly and durably marked with the following mandatory markings:

− items a), b), c), d), e), k) and l) of 7.1 of IEC 61347-1, together with
− the symbol for earthing, as applicable;
− for controllable control gear, the control terminals shall be identified;

− a declaration of the maximum working voltage (r.m.s.) according to 12.2 between

• output terminals;
• any output terminal and earth.

Marking for each of these two values shall be in steps of 10 V when the working voltage is

equal to, or less than, 500 V, and in steps of 50 V when the working voltage is higher than

500 V. The marking of maximum working voltage is referenced in two situations, the maximum

between output terminals and the maximum between any output terminal and earth. It is

acceptable for only the higher of these two voltages to be marked.
Marking shall be U-OUT=...V.
7.2 Information to be provided, if applicable

In addition to the above mandatory markings, the following information, if applicable, shall be

given either on the control gear, or be made available in the manufacturer’s catalogue or

similar:
– items h), i), and j) given in 7.1 of IEC 61347-1;

– information regarding voltage polarity reversal protection for d.c. supplied control gear

only.
