ENERGY PERFORMANCE OF LAMP CONTROLGEAR –

Method of measurement to determine the total input power

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.

IEC 62442-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 34C: Auxiliaries for lamps, of IEC technical

committee 34: Lighting. It is an International Standard.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2018. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:
a) this edition has been harmonized with IEC 62442-2 and IEC 62442-3;

b) the reference to and use of the measurement methods for non-active power consumption in

accordance with IEC 63103 have been added.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in IEC 60050-845 and

IEC TS 63105 and the following apply.

ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following

addresses:
• IEC Electropedia: available at http://www.electropedia.org/
• ISO Online browsing platform: available at http://www.iso.org/obp
3.1
nominal value

suitable approximate quantity value used to designate or identify a component, device or

equipment

Note 1 to entry: To express the "nominal value" of a particular quantity, the term "value" is replaced by the quantity

name; for example, nominal power, nominal voltage, and nominal current.
3.2
rated value

value of a quantity, used for specification purposes, declared by the manufacturer or

responsible vendor and established under standard test conditions

Note 1 to entry: To express the "rated value" of a particular quantity, the term "value" is replaced by the quantity

name; for example, rated power, rated voltage, rated current, and rated temperature.

Note 2 to entry: For the different kinds of operation, rated electrical values are given on the lamp data sheets as:

− rated electrical values under "electrical characteristics", if the lamp is defined for 50 Hz/60 Hz operation only;

− rated electrical values under "electrical characteristics", if the lamp is defined for high frequency (≥ 20 kHz)

operation only;

− rated electrical values and typical electrical values, if the lamp is defined simultaneously for 50 Hz/60 Hz

operation and high frequency operation:

• for 50 Hz/60 Hz operation: rated electrical values under "electrical characteristics", and

• for high frequency operation: rated electrical values under "typical lamp characteristics".

[SOURCE: IEC 60050-845:2020, 845-27-100, modified – The note 2 to entry has been replaced

by a new Note 2 to entry.]
3.3
controlgear

4.1 Ballast lumen factor

For every controlgear-lamp combination submitted for the test, the ballast lumen factor shall be

measured. The ballast lumen factor is defined in 3.11 and expressed as:

where

Light is the light output of the reference lamp connected to the reference ballast measured

ref
by photocell meter reading;

Light is the light output of the reference lamp connected to the controlgear under test

test
measured by photocell meter reading.

The ballast lumen factor shall be in the range of 0,925 to 1,075. A controlgear with a lower

ballast lumen factor is not suitable for testing. The upper limit of 1,075 may be exceeded, if the

value for maximum lamp operation current and maximum current in any lead to cathodes comply

with the rated value in IEC 60081 and IEC 60901.
4.2 Dimmable controlgear

A sufficient cathode temperature shall be produced by the heating circuit at any possible

dimming position within the available dimming range of the controlgear as specified in the

relevant data sheet in IEC 60081 and IEC 60901.

Dimmable controlgear shall be measured at 100 % and 25 % lumen output of the operated

lamp(s).
4.3 Multi-power and/or multi-number-lamp controlgear

Multi-power and multi-number-lamp controlgear shall be measured with all the possible lamp

power and number of lamp combinations. The manufacturer shall declare the relevant BLF for

each combination.
4.4 General notes on tests

The measurement conditions specified in IEC 60921:2004 or IEC 60929:2011, Annex A shall
