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.

INTRODUCTION

The first edition of this document specifies uniform requirements for measuring non-active

mode power consumption for all lighting equipment. Present performance standards for

controlgear (IEC 62442 (all parts)) and luminaires (IEC 62722-1), already include some

descriptions for measuring standby power. It is expected that these standards will be

amended, accordingly.

In addition to an illumination function, today’s lighting equipment can execute a variety of

additional non-illumination functions, for example through integrated surveillance cameras,

noise detectors, occupancy counters, vehicular and pedestrian traffic detection, weather

detection, smoke detection, visible light communication and proximity or location devices.

During the execution of these functions, the (multi-function) lighting equipment can operate in

many different (active and non-active) modes. Non-active mode power consumption of (multi-

function) lighting equipment, i.e. the power consumed when the illumination function is off, is

an important aspect of lighting equipment and is becoming more important with the

emergence of connected lighting.
This document defines and describes methods of measurement of electrical power

consumption in non-active mode(s) for lighting equipment. The document is organized into

two main clauses: Clause 4 "General test conditions" and Clause 5 "Measurements".

Clause 4 contains specifications on the general conditions for making the measurements.

Subclauses 4.1 through 4.4 cover conditions for setting up the laboratory, selecting a supply

voltage and suitable instruments for the power measurement. Subclause 4.5 covers aspects

which should be considered when the lighting equipment is connected to a network to work

properly. Subclause 4.5.2 is for wired networks and 4.5.3 and 4.5.4 give setups for wireless

networks using conducted or radiated connections, respectively. These setups for wireless

networks are harmonized with ETSI Standard EN 300 328 and modified for lighting
equipment.

Clause 5 details the procedures for making measurements of the equipment under test (EUT).

Subclause 5.1 gives general instructions for setting the EUT into the possible non-active

mode(s). Subclause 5.2 details the large variety of EUTs. These EUTs can be placed into two

categories: illumination-only (5.2.2) and multi-function (5.2.3) lighting equipment. Traditional

lighting equipment with an illumination-only function is summarized in 5.2.2, Table 1. Multi-

function lighting equipment having additional non-illumination functions is addressed in 5.2.3.

A standardized form for reporting the measured result according to the functions and modes

of the multi-function lighting equipment under test is specified in 5.2.3, Table 2. Table 2 is a

central feature of this document that will enable all users to report their non-active power

results in a consistent manner.

Subclause 5.3 specifies procedures for preparing the EUT to make measurements of the input

power. Instructions for EUTs containing battery charging functions are found in 5.3.2.

Subclause 5.3.3 gives procedures for EUTs having no network provision and 5.3.4 covers

networked EUTs whether wired or wireless.

The measurement procedure is specified in 5.4 and offers three alternative methods and the

specific stability conditions required for each. These methods are adapted for lighting

equipment from IEC 62301:2011. The direct meter method specified in 5.4.2 has the most

limited applicability. It can only be used when the power reading is stable. In cases of

discrepancy, the average reading method (5.4.3) or sampling method (5.4.4) have

precedence. The average reading method is suitable only for EUTs having stable modes

whereas the sampling method is suited for cyclic or unstable modes and if the mode is of

limited duration.
---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------
IEC 63103:2020 © IEC 2020 – 7 –

Informative annexes are included to illustrate various measurement setups (Annex B and

Annex C) and Annex D provides practical examples of controlgear, for example involving

lighting equipment having a digital addressable lighting interface network in accordance with

IEC 62386 (all parts), and of luminaires.

The methods defined and described in this document are not intended to be used to measure

power consumption of (multi-function) lighting equipment during active mode(s) (also called

"on mode(s)"), as these are generally covered by IEC standards or other product standards.

This document provides methods of measurement for lighting equipment. However, the

methods specified in this document could also be used to measure lighting system models. A

system model is a full-size portion of the lighting system containing specific functions and can

set every mode of a portion of the system. The system models should be scalable to the

entire lighting system additively. Thus, the total non-active mode power consumption of the

system should equal the summation of power measured in each system model.

Using an adaptive roadway and pedestrian lighting system as an example for illustration, the

following three system models could be present:

– (A) five luminaires connected to one daylight sensor; illuminate to compensate daylight;

– (B) a luminaire with a pedestrian sensor, a daylight sensor, connected to a crosswalk

illumination; illuminate the crosswalk upon sensing a pedestrian when needed;

– (C) a dimmable luminaire with a vehicle detector; illuminate upon sensing a vehicle when

needed.

Assume the lighting system comprises 50 A-, 10 B-, and 20 C-system models, then the total

power consumption for a specified mode of the system would be

Power(mode) = 50 × power(A) + 10 × power(B) + 20 × power(C). Table 2 (5.2.3) could be

used to specify the measurement of a system model set in various combinations of modes. In

this way, the system is evaluated in measurable pieces (system models) set to function

interactively as the entire system is intended for each mode.

NON-ACTIVE MODE POWER MEASUREMENT
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.

INTRODUCTION

The first edition of this document specifies uniform requirements for measuring non-active

mode power consumption for all lighting equipment. Present performance standards for

controlgear (IEC 62442 (all parts)) and luminaires (IEC 62722-1), already include some

descriptions for measuring standby power. It is expected that these standards will be

amended, accordingly.

In addition to an illumination function, today’s lighting equipment can execute a variety of

additional non-illumination functions, for example through integrated surveillance cameras,

noise detectors, occupancy counters, vehicular and pedestrian traffic detection, weather

detection, smoke detection, visible light communication and proximity or location devices.

During the execution of these functions, the (multi-function) lighting equipment can operate in

many different (active and non-active) modes. Non-active mode power consumption of (multi-

function) lighting equipment, i.e. the power consumed when the illumination function is off, is

an important aspect of lighting equipment and is becoming more important with the

emergence of connected lighting.
This document defines and describes methods of measurement of electrical power

consumption in non-active mode(s) for lighting equipment. The document is organized into

two main clauses: Clause 4 "General test conditions" and Clause 5 "Measurements".

Clause 4 contains specifications on the general conditions for making the measurements.

Subclauses 4.1 through 4.4 cover conditions for setting up the laboratory, selecting a supply

voltage and suitable instruments for the power measurement. Subclause 4.5 covers aspects

which should be considered when the lighting equipment is connected to a network to work

properly. Subclause 4.5.2 is for wired networks and 4.5.3 and 4.5.4 give setups for wireless

networks using conducted or radiated connections, respectively. These setups for wireless

networks are harmonized with ETSI Standard EN 300 328 and modified for lighting
equipment.

Clause 5 details the procedures for making measurements of the equipment under test (EUT).

Subclause 5.1 gives general instructions for setting the EUT into the possible non-active

mode(s). Subclause 5.2 details the large variety of EUTs. These EUTs can be placed into two

categories: illumination-only (5.2.2) and multi-function (5.2.3) lighting equipment. Traditional

lighting equipment with an illumination-only function is summarized in 5.2.2, Table 1. Multi-

function lighting equipment having additional non-illumination functions is addressed in 5.2.3.

A standardized form for reporting the measured result according to the functions and modes

of the multi-function lighting equipment under test is specified in 5.2.3, Table 2. Table 2 is a

central feature of this document that will enable all users to report their non-active power

results in a consistent manner.

Subclause 5.3 specifies procedures for preparing the EUT to make measurements of the input

power. Instructions for EUTs containing battery charging functions are found in 5.3.2.

Subclause 5.3.3 gives procedures for EUTs having no network provision and 5.3.4 covers

networked EUTs whether wired or wireless.

The measurement procedure is specified in 5.4 and offers three alternative methods and the

specific stability conditions required for each. These methods are adapted for lighting

equipment from IEC 62301:2011. The direct meter method specified in 5.4.2 has the most

limited applicability. It can only be used when the power reading is stable. In cases of

discrepancy, the average reading method (5.4.3) or sampling method (5.4.4) have

precedence. The average reading method is suitable only for EUTs having stable modes

whereas the sampling method is suited for cyclic or unstable modes and if the mode is of

limited duration.
---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------
IEC 63103:2020 © IEC 2020 – 7 –

Informative annexes are included to illustrate various measurement setups (Annex B and

Annex C) and Annex D provides practical examples of controlgear, for example involving

lighting equipment having a digital addressable lighting interface network in accordance with

IEC 62386 (all parts), and of luminaires.

The methods defined and described in this document are not intended to be used to measure

power consumption of (multi-function) lighting equipment during active mode(s) (also called

"on mode(s)"), as these are generally covered by IEC standards or other product standards.

This document provides methods of measurement for lighting equipment. However, the

methods specified in this document could also be used to measure lighting system models. A

system model is a full-size portion of the lighting system containing specific functions and can

set every mode of a portion of the system. The system models should be scalable to the

entire lighting system additively. Thus, the total non-active mode power consumption of the

system should equal the summation of power measured in each system model.

Using an adaptive roadway and pedestrian lighting system as an example for illustration, the

following three system models could be present:

– (A) five luminaires connected to one daylight sensor; illuminate to compensate daylight;

– (B) a luminaire with a pedestrian sensor, a daylight sensor, connected to a crosswalk

illumination; illuminate the crosswalk upon sensing a pedestrian when needed;

– (C) a dimmable luminaire with a vehicle detector; illuminate upon sensing a vehicle when

needed.

Assume the lighting system comprises 50 A-, 10 B-, and 20 C-system models, then the total

power consumption for a specified mode of the system would be

Power(mode) = 50 × power(A) + 10 × power(B) + 20 × power(C). Table 2 (5.2.3) could be

used to specify the measurement of a system model set in various combinations of modes. In

this way, the system is evaluated in measurable pieces (system models) set to function

interactively as the entire system is intended for each mode.
