    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides methods of measurement of ballast energy consumption and performance when used with associated fluorescent lamps as part of luminaires and applies to those covered within the scope of IEC60081 and IEC60901. The common methods practiced in major parts of the world, Europe in particular are prescribed in This Standard and relevant appendices. The tests specified are derived from EN50294 with significant restructuring and modifications. The scope of this Standard excludes self-ballasted lamps and does not cover safety requirements.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard provides methods of measurement of ballast energy consumption and performance when used with their associated fluorescent lamp(s).NOTE: Requirements for testing individual ballasts during production are not included.It specifies energy efficiency and performance measurement for ballasts used with fluorescent lamps that fall within the scope of IEC 60081 and IEC 60901.This Standard does not specify safety requirements.
