Lamp controlgear - Part 2-13: Particular requirements for d.c. or a.c. supplied electronic controlgear for LED modules

This part of IEC 61347 specifies particular safety requirements for electronic controlgear for
use on d.c. or a.c. supplies up to 1 000 V (a.c. at 50 Hz or 60 Hz) and at an output frequency
which can deviate from the supply frequency, associated with LED modules.
Controlgear for LED modules specified in this standard are designed to provide constant
voltage or current at SELV or higher voltages. Deviations from the pure voltage and current
types do not exclude the gear from this standard.
The annexes of IEC 61347-1 which are applicable according to this Part 2-13 and using the
word “lamp” are understood to also comprise LED modules.
Particular requirements for SELV controlgear are given in Annex I.
Performance requirements are covered by IEC 62384.
Plug-in controlgear, being part of the luminaire, are covered as for built-in controlgear by the
additional requirements of the luminaire standard.

L'IEC 61347-2-13:2014 spécifie les exigences particulières de sécurité pour les appareillages électroniques pour l'utilisation sur des alimentations en courant continu ou en courant alternatif jusqu'à 1 000 V (en courant alternatif à 50 Hz ou 60 Hz) et avec une fréquence de sortie qui peut être différente de la fréquence d'alimentation, en association avec des modules de LED. Les appareillages pour les modules de LED spécifiés dans cette norme sont conçus pour fournir une tension ou un courant constant à une tension correspondant à une TBTS ou à des tensions supérieures. Des déviations par rapport aux types de tension et courant purs n'excluent pas l'appareillage de la présente norme. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2006. Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente. a) Remplacement des exigences relatives aux équivalents TBTS par des exigences relatives aux TBTS et référence aux exigences relatives aux TBTS de l'Annexe L de l'IEC 61347 1:2007/AMD2:2012. b) Référence à l'IEC 61347-1 en ce qui concerne la protection contre le contact accidentel avec des parties actives, la résistance à l'humidité et l'isolement et la rigidité diélectrique. c) Nouvelle Annexe J relative aux exigences s'appliquant aux éclairages de secours.

Krmilne stikalne naprave za sijalke - 2-13. del: Posebne zahteve za enosmerno ali izmenično napajane elektronske krmilne stikalne naprave za module LED (IEC 61347-2-13:2014)

Ta del standarda IEC 61347 določa posebne varnostne zahteve za elektronske krmilne stikalne naprave za uporabo pri enosmernem ali izmeničnem napajanju do 1000 V (izmenično pri 50 Hz ali 60 Hz) in pri izhodni frekvenci, ki lahko odstopa od napajalne frekvence, povezane z moduli LED. Krmilne stikalne naprave za module LED iz tega standarda so namenjene zagotavljanju konstantne napetosti ali toka pri SELV ali višjih napetostih. Odstopanja od tipov čiste napetosti in toka ne izključujejo naprav iz tega standarda.
Dodatki k standardu IEC 61347-1, ki se uporabljajo v skladu z 2. do 13. delom in uporabljajo besedo »sijalka«, naj bi prav tako zajemali module LED.
Posebne zahteve za krmilne stikalne naprave SELV so podane v dodatku I.
Zahteve glede zmogljivosti so obravnavane v standardu IEC 62384.
Vtične krmilne stikalne naprave, ki so del svetilke, so kot vgrajene krmilne stikalne naprave zajete v dodatnih zahtevah standarda za svetilke.

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 61347-2-13 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 2006. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition.

a) Replacement of the SELV-equivalent requirements by SELV requirements and reference

to the SELV requirements of Annex L in IEC 61347-1:2007/AMD2:2012.

b) Reference to IEC 61347-1 for the protection against accidental contact with live parts,

moisture resistance and insulation and electric strength.
c) New Annex J for emergency lighting requirements.

INTRODUCTION

This second edition of IEC 61347-2-13 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 to

each other.

4 General requirements

The requirements of Clause 4 of IEC 61347-1:2007/AMD2:2012 apply, together with the

following additional requirements.

– Controlgear providing SELV shall comply with the requirements of Annex I. This includes

insulation resistance, electric strength, creepage distances and clearance between

primary and secondary circuits.

– If a separating, isolating or autotransformer is used, it shall comply with the relevant parts

of IEC 61558. If, however, insulated winding wires are used for controlgear with an input

voltage of up to 300 V, the dielectric strength test voltage is limited to 3 kV for raw

material.
