BS EN 60929:2011+A1:2016

AC and/or DC-supplied electronic control gear for tubular fluorescent lamps. Performance requirements

Status : Current   Published : November 2011



This international Standard specifies performance requirements for electronic control gear for use on a.c. at 50 Hz or 60 Hz and/or d.c. supplies, both up to 1 000 V, with operating frequencies deviating from the supply frequency, associated with fluorescent lamps as specified in IEC 60081 and IEC 60901, and other fluorescent lamps for high-frequency operation.


Tests in this standard are type tests. Requirements for testing individual control gear during production are not included.


There are regional standards regarding the regulation of mains current harmonics and immunity for end-products like luminaires and independent control gear. In a luminaire, the control gear is dominant in this respect. Control gear, together with other components, should comply with these standards.


Requirements for the digital addressable lighting interface of electronic control gear are given in IEC 62386.
