BS EN 61347-1:2015 pdf free download.Lamp controlgear Part 1: General and safety requirements.
4 General requirements
Lamp controlgear shall be so designed and constructed that in normal use it operates without danger to the user or surroundings.
Compliance is checked by carrying out all the tests specified.
Requirements for insulation materials used for double or reinforced insulation of controlgear are specified in Annex N of this standard.
In addition, independent lamp controlgear shall comply with the requirements of IEC 60598-1, including marking requirements of that standard such as IP classification and mechanical stress. Built-in ballasts with double or reinforced insulation shall comply additionally with the requirements of Annex I.
Built-in electronic controlgear with double or reinforced insulation shall comply additionally with the requirements of Annex 0.
Some built-in lamp controlgear do not have their own enclosure and are composed of printed circuit boards and electrical components thereon, and shall comply with the requirements of IEC 60598-1 when built into the luminaire Integral lamp controlgear not having their own enclosure shall be treated as integral components of luminaires defined in Clause 0.5 in IEC 60598-1:2014 and shall be tested assembled in the luminaire.
It is recommended for the luminaire manufacturer to confer about the relevant test requirements with the controlgear manufacturer, if necessary.
In the lamp safety standards, information for ballast design” is given for the safe operation of lamps. This shall be regarded as normative when testing ballasts.
Controlgears providing SELV shall comply with the additional requirements given in Annex L. This includes especially insulation resistance, electric strength, creepage distances and clearances between the primary and secondary circuit.
5 General notes on tests
5.1 Tests according to this standard are type tests.
The requirements and tolerances permitted by this standard are related to testing of a type test sample submitted by the manufacturer for that purpose. Compliance of the type test sample does not ensure compliance of the whole production of a manufacturer with this safety standard.
Conformity of production is the responsibility of the manufacturer and may include routine tests and quality assurance in addition to type testing.
5.2 Unless otherwise specified, the tests are carried out at an ambient temperature of
10 °C to 30 °C.
5.3 Unless otherwise specified, the type test is carried out on one sample consisting of one or more items submitted for the purpose of the type test.
In general, all tests are carried out on each type of lamp controlgear or, where a range of similar lamp controlgear is involved, for each wattage in the range or on a representative selection from the range, as agreed with the manufacturer.
Certain countries require that three samples of lamp controlgear be tested and, in such cases. if more than one sample fails, then the type is rejected. If one sample fails, the test is repeated using three other samples and all of these shall comply with the test requirements.
If the tests of 14.3 or 15.5 of IEC 61558-1:2005 have to made, three additional samples are needed. These samples are used only for the test of 14.3 or 15.5 of IEC 61558-1:2005. respectively.
5.4 The tests shall be carried out in the order listed in this standard unless otherwise specified in Parts 2 of IEC 61347.
5.5 For the thermal test, independent lamp controlgear shall be mounted in a test corner consisting of three dull-black painted woodenlwood fibre boards 15 mm to 20 mm thick and arranged so as to resemble two walls and the ceiling of a room. The lamp controlgear is secured to the ceiling as close as possible to the walls, the ceiling extending at least 250 mm beyond the other side of the lamp controlgear.
5.6 For d.c. supplied ballasts intended for use from a battery supply it is permissible to substitute a d.c. power source other than a battery, provided that the source impedance is equivalent to that of a battery.
NOTE A non-inductive capacitor of appropriate rated voltage and with a capacitance of at least 50 pF, connected across the supply terminals of the unit under test, normally provides a source impedance simulating that of a battery.
5.7 When testing lamp controlgear to the requirements of this standard, earlier test reports may be updated in accordance with this edition by submitting a new sample for test together with the previous test report.
Full type testing may not generally be necessary and the product and the previous test results shall only be reviewed against any amended clause marked “Rn as scheduled in Annex J.BS EN 61347-1 pdf download.
