IEC 61347-2-9 Testing

Lamp controlgear – Part 2-9: electromagnetic controlgear for discharge lamps (excluding fluorescent lamps)

IEC 61347-2-9 Scope:

IEC 61347 2 9 and EN 61347 2 9 testing specifies particular safety requirements for electromagnetic controlgear for discharge lamps such as high-pressure mercury vapor, low-pressure sodium vapor, high-pressure sodium vapor and metal halide lamps. IEC 61347-2-9 covers inductive-type electromagnetic controlgear for use on A.C. supplies up to 1000 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.

EN 61347-2-9 testing applies to complete electromagnetic controlgear and to their component parts such as reactors, transformers and capacitors. 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. Performance requirements are the subject of IEC 60923.
