LAMP CONTROLGEAR –
Part 2-9: Particular requirements for electromagnetic
controlgear for discharge lamps (excluding fluorescent lamps)
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 61347-2-9 has been prepared by subcommittee 34C: Auxiliaries

for lamps, of IEC technical committee 34: Lamps and related equipment.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2000,

Amendment 1:2003 and Amendment 2:2006. This edition constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) the addition of a new Clause 14;
b) the word "ballast" is changed to "electromagnetic controlgear".

INTRODUCTION

This second edition of IEC 61347-2-9 is published in conjunction with IEC 61347-1. 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 self-contained and, therefore, do not include references

LAMP CONTROLGEAR –
Part 2-9: Particular requirements for electromagnetic
controlgear for discharge lamps (excluding fluorescent lamps)
1 Scope

This part of the IEC 61347 series specifies particular safety requirements for electromagnetic

controlgear for discharge lamps such as high-pressure mercury vapour, low-pressure sodium

vapour, high-pressure sodium vapour and metal halide lamps. The standard covers inductive-

type electromagnetic controlgear for use on a.c. supplies up to 1 000 V at 50 Hz or 60 Hz,

associated with discharge lamps, having rated wattages, dimensions and characteristics as

specified in IEC 60188, IEC 60192 and IEC 60662.

This standard applies to complete electromagnetic controlgear and to their component parts

such as reactors, transformers and capacitors. Particular requirements for thermally protected

electromagnetic controlgear are given in Annex B.
For certain types of discharge lamps, an ignitor is required.

NOTE Electromagnetic controlgear for fluorescent lamps are covered by IEC 61347-2-8.

---------------------- Page: 13 ----------------------
SIST EN 61347-2-9:2013
– 8 – 61347-2-9 © IEC:2012
3.1
rated temperature rise of an electromagnetic controlgear winding

temperature rise assigned by the manufacturer under the conditions specified in this standard

Note 1 to entry: The specifications for the supply and mounting conditions of the electromagnetic controlgear are

given in Annex H.
3.2
high-voltage impulse

intentionally applied periodic transient voltage which rises rapidly to a peak value and then

falls, usually less rapidly, to zero

Note 1 to entry: The term "impulse" is to be distinguished from the term "surge", which refers to transients

occurring in electrical equipment or networks in service.

Note 2 to entry: Such an impulse is, in general, well represented by the sum of two exponentials.

4 General requirements
4.1 General

The requirements of Clause 4 of IEC 61347-1:2007 apply, together with the following

additional requirements:
4.2 Capacitors and other components

Capacitors and other components incorporated in electromagnetic controlgear shall comply

with the requirements of the appropriate IEC standard.
4.3 Thermally protected electromagnetic controlgear

Thermally protected electromagnetic controlgear shall comply with the requirements of

Annex B.
5 General notes on tests

The requirements of Clause 5 of IEC 61347-1:2007 apply, together with the following

additional requirements:

The type test is carried out on one sample consisting of eight electromagnetic controlgear

submitted for the purpose of the type test. Seven electromagnetic controlgear are for the

endurance test and one for all other tests. For conditions of compliance for the endurance

test, see Clause 13.

In addition, six electromagnetic controlgear are required for the high-voltage impulse testing

according to Clause 15 below, for electromagnetic controlgear for metal halide and high-

pressure sodium lamps. There shall be no failure during the test.

The tests are made under the conditions specified in Annex H of IEC 61347-1:2007. In

general, all the tests are carried out on each type of electromagnetic controlgear or, where a

range of similar electromagnetic controlgear is involved, on each rated power in the range, or

on a representative selection from the range as agreed with the manufacturer. A reduction in

the number of samples for the endurance test according to Clause 13 and including the use of

constant S other than 4 500 as shown in Annex E, or even the omission of these tests, is

allowed when electromagnetic controlgear of the same construction but with different

characteristics are submitted together for approval, or when test reports from the

manufacturer or other authority are accepted by the testing station.
