    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies safety requirements for starting devices for fluorescent and other discharge lamps for use on a.c. supplies up to 1000 volt at 50/60 Hz in combination with lamps and ballasts. This Standard is identical to and reproduced from IEC 61347-2-1:2000.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This part of IEC 61347 AS/NZS 61347 specifies particular safety requirements for starting devices (starters other than glow starters and ignitors) for fluorescent and other discharge lamps for use on a.c. supplies up to 1 000 V at 50 Hz or 60 Hz which produce starting pulses not greater than 100 kV and which are used in combination with lamps and ballasts covered in IEC 60081, IEC 60188, IEC 60192, IEC 60662, IEC 60901, IEC 61167, IEC 61195, IEC 61199, IEC 61347-2-8 and IEC 61347-2-9.It does not apply to glow starters or starting devices which are incorporated in discharge lamps or which are manually operated. Preheat transformers for fluorescent lamps are covered by IEC 61347.2.8NOTE - Glow starters are dealt with in IEC 60155.This standard refers only to starting devices for use with ballasts and lamps which are internationally the most in demand.Performance requirements are given in IEC 60927.
