LIGHTING CONTROL INTERFACE FOR DIMMING –
ANALOGUE VOLTAGE DIMMING INTERFACE FOR
ELECTRONIC CURRENT SOURCING CONTROLGEAR
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.

4 General remarks on tests
4.1 Disconnected control signal

If the control signal is not received, the lamp controlgear shall provide the rated power or

maximum of the rated power range or the system failure level, if applicable and described by

the manufacturer.
4.2 Type test
Tests according to this document are type tests.

The requirements and tolerances permitted by this document are based on the testing of a

type test sample submitted by the manufacturer for that purpose. In principle this type test

sample should consist of units having characteristics typical of the manufacturer’s production

and be as close to the production centre point values as possible. For guidance on sampling

plans and procedures for inspection by attributes, see ISO 2859-1.
---------------------- Page: 8 ----------------------
IEC 63128:2019 © IEC 2019 – 7 –
4.3 Test order and application of test

The tests shall be carried out in the order of the clauses, unless otherwise specified.

One lamp controlgear shall be submitted to all tests, unless otherwise stated.

In general, all tests are made on each type of lamp controlgear or where a power range of

similar lamp controlgear is involved, for each rated power in the range or on a representative

selection from the range as given by the manufacturer.
5 Marking

Controllable electronic light source controlgear in accordance with this document shall be

clearly marked with the following marking (see Figure 1):
Figure 1 – Marking of controllable electronic light source controlgear
The preferred marking size should be 8 mm x 16 mm (H x L).
6 System description
6.1 General

The circuit diagram of the functional specification for DC voltage control is shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2 – Functional specification for DC voltage control

The output power of a controllable lamp controlgear is controlled by the control signal applied

to the control input of the controllable lamp controlgear.

Depending on the current sink capability of the control device, and the total maximum source

current for all controllable lamp controlgear, several controllable lamp controlgear can be

connected to one control device (see Figure 3).

Figure 3 – Connection diagram for several controllable electronic lamp controlgear

6.2 Control signal voltage range and characteristics
The control input voltage V shall be in the range of:
-20 V < V < +20 V.
In this range the controlgear shall not be damaged.

The control terminals shall be protected against the application of reversed polarity. In that

case, the electronic lamp controlgear shall operate with minimum output power or shall not

operate.
The control signal shall have the following characteristics:
Control signal range
V = between 0 V and 1 V: minimum value of output power (minimum light output).

V = between 1 V and 10 V: output power increasing from minimum to maximum value,

see 6.3.
V = between 10 V and 11 V: maximum value of output power (maximum light output)

V = between 0 V and 11 V: stable output power, where stable light output is expected.

If the control terminals of the controllable controlgear are not connected to a control device

(open circuit) the controlgear shall provide the maximum output power (the light output shall

be the maximum light output).
This shall be tested by measuring the output power.
6.3 Dimming curve
The dimming curve is defined using the values in Table 1.
---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------
IEC 63128:2019 © IEC 2019 – 9 –

NOTE If the electronic lamp controlgear is designed as a power source based on a current source, then the

values given in the table are percentages of the rated current. If the electronic lamp controlgear is designed as a

power source based on a voltage source, then the values given in the table are the percentages of the rated

voltage.

In the case of electronic light source controlgear with a minimum physically possible value of

output power higher than a value in the table, the table shall be applied only above this lowest

possible value.
6.4 Control input current limits

Controlgear in relation to this document acts as a current source. Limits for the control input

current to be sourced by the controlgear are 100 µA minimum and 2 mA maximum, for the

input voltage range of 0 V to 11 V.

The nominal value of the control input current shall be declared in the manufacturer’s

literature or stated on the lamp controlgear.
6.5 Switch-on
The switch-on of the controlgear is permitted at any dimming position.
This shall be tested by visual inspection.

1) La Commission Electrotechnique Internationale (IEC) est une organisation mondiale de normalisation

composée de l'ensemble des comités électrotechniques nationaux (Comités nationaux de l’IEC). L’IEC a pour

objet de favoriser la coopération internationale pour toutes les questions de normalisation dans les domaines

de l'électricité et de l'électronique. A cet effet, l’IEC – entre autres activités – publie des Normes

internationales, des Spécifications techniques, des Rapports techniques, des Spécifications accessibles au

public (PAS) et des Guides (ci-après dénommés "Publication(s) de l’IEC"). Leur élaboration est confiée à des

comités d'études, aux travaux desquels tout Comité national intéressé par le sujet traité peut participer. Les

organisations internationales, gouvernementales et non gouvernementales, en liaison avec l’IEC, participent

également aux travaux. L’IEC collabore étroitement avec l'Organisation Internationale de Normalisation (ISO),

selon des conditions fixées par accord entre les deux organisations.

2) Les décisions ou accords officiels de l’IEC concernant les questions techniques représentent, dans la mesure

du possible, un accord international sur les sujets étudiés, étant donné que les Comités nationaux de l’IEC

intéressés sont représentés dans chaque comité d’études.

3) Les Publications de l’IEC se présentent sous la forme de recommandations internationales et sont agréées

comme telles par les Comités nationaux de l’IEC. Tous les efforts raisonnables sont entrepris afin que l’IEC

s'assure de l'exactitude du contenu technique de ses publications; l’IEC ne peut pas être tenue responsable de

l'éventuelle mauvaise utilisation ou interprétation qui en est faite par un quelconque utilisateur final.

4) Dans le but d'encourager l'uniformité internationale, les Comités nationaux de l’IEC s'engagent, dans toute la

mesure possible, à appliquer de façon transparente les Publications de l’IEC dans leurs publications nationales

et régionales. Toutes divergences entre toutes Publications de l’IEC et toutes publications nationales ou
