Replace definition 3.20 with the following new definition:
3.20
polarized lampholder

lampholder for building-in specially designed for asymmetric ignition voltages, where the rated

ignition voltage (higher rated ignition voltage) is designated to a fixed contact

Add, at the end of Clause 3, the following new terms and definitions:
3.23
critical frequency
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.

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.

for selecting the associated components
Note 2 to entry: See 3.24.1

Note 3 to entry: To determine the declared equivalent transformed output peak voltage for basic insulation U

[basic] the worst case combination of the maximum occurring peak voltage and frequency has to be taken into

account, which means the maximum clearance according to IEC 61347-1:2015, Table 10 for basic insulation.

Note 4 to entry: To determine the declared equivalent transformed output peak voltage for the reinforced

insulation U [reinforced] the worst case combination of the maximum occurring peak voltage and frequency has to

be taken into account, which means the maximum clearance according to IEC 61347-1:2015, Table 11 for

reinforced insulation.

Replace item a) including the note with the following new item a) and note:
---------------------- Page: 5 ----------------------
– 4 – IEC 60838-1:2016/AMD1:2017
© IEC 2017

a) the rated voltage in volts and rated ignition voltage in kilovolts (kV), if applicable. For

polarized lampholders the rated voltage in volts and the pair of rated ignition voltages;

NOTE 1 Some lampholders still show rated voltages higher than 500 V. This is an earlier way of expressing

the permissible ignition voltage via a rated voltage. For such lampholders, the creepage distances and

clearances can be found in IEC 60598-1.
Replace item e) with the following new item e):

e) the high voltage arrow (see IEC 60417-5036:2002-10) for polarized lampholders to identify

the connection for the higher ignition voltage, if applicable. It shall be visible close to the

relevant terminal or wire entry during lampholder installation.

Replace, in the third paragraph, the last dashed list item with the following new text:

– high ignition voltage terminal/wire on polarized lampholders: (see IEC 60417-
5036:2002-10)
Replace the fourth paragraph with the following new text:

For the rated ignition voltage, the symbol shall be preceded by its value (e.g. 5 kV). For

polarized lampholders the two rated ignition voltages shall be separated by an oblique stroke

(e.g. 15/2,5 kV).

NOTE 3 The figure marked before the oblique stroke represents the higher ignition voltage, the figure behind

represents the rated ignition voltage at least based on the impulse withstand category of the lampholder.

7.3
Replace the first paragraph with the following new text:

The instructions supplied by the holder manufacturer or responsible vendor shall contain all

the information required to ensure correct mounting and operation of the connectors or

holders. (For example information regarding UV radiation, frequency limitations, increased

creepage distances, PTI or the like)

voltage test of 12.2.2 is considered sufficient. Creepage distances shall not be less than the required minimum

clearance.

In Japan, the values given in the table are not applicable. Japan requires larger values than the values given in the

table.

material with PTI ≥ 600 apply for all materials.

Replace, after Table 2b and the fifth paragraph, the existing text with the following new text:

NOTE 1 In case of combination of voltage and frequency (> 30 kHz) requiring higher creepage distances than the

values required in Tables 2a and 2b, the controlgear is marked with the details of this combination (Û and its

out

corresponding frequency f ) − see IEC 61347-1:2015, 7.1, item w). For details and the required values for

Uout
creepage distances see IEC 61347-1:2015, 16.2.

The clearances for the rated ignition voltage of the holder shall not be less than the values

given in Table 3.

NOTE 2 Lampholders can be subjected to a working voltage higher than the rated voltage under the following

conditions:

– The nominal voltage and the overvoltage category of the supply voltage does not exceed the rated values of

the lampholder.

– The working voltage (r.m.s.) and the maximum repetitive peak working voltage (Û ) marked on the

out

controlgear respectively do not specify a higher creepage distance than the rated voltage of the lampholder.

– The working voltage does not specify a higher clearance than the rated voltage and the rated ignition voltage

of the lampholder.

The distances specified in Table 3 are derived from IEC 60664-1 (inhomogeneous field

conditions). For distances subjected to both sinusoidal voltage as well as ignition voltage, the

minimum required distance shall be not less than the highest value indicated in either

Table 2a, Table 2b or Table 3 relevant for the impulse voltage category.

NOTE 3 Ignition pulse voltages having total pulse duration of > 750 μs or having a higher frequency than ƒ can

crit

require higher clearances although its peak value is lower than the rated ignition voltage of the lampholder.
