About This Item


Full Description

1. Scope

This standard specifies safety requirements for ballasts for discharge lamps such as high-pressure mercury vapour, low- pressure sodium vapour, high-pressure sodium vapour and metal halide lamps. Section One specifies general requirements and Section Two specifies thermal and mechanical requirements. The standard covers inductive-type ballasts for use on a.c. supplies up to 1 000 V at 50 Hz or 60 Hz associated with discharge lamps, having rated wattages, dimensions and characteristics as specified in the relevant IEC lamp standards according to IEC Publications 188, 192 and 662.

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

Notes (1) For certain types of discharge lamp an ignitor is required. (2) Ballasts for tubular fluorescent discharge lamps are covered by IEC Publication 920.

This Standard can also apply to inductive-type ballasts associated with discharge lamps specified in the applicable ANSI Standard.

This Standard applies to the safety of such equipment designed to be installed on branch circuits not exceeding 750 V and used in accordance with the rules of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I.

Note: Manufacturers designing products for use in Canada may find a helpful summary of the equipment-related requirements of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, in CSA Publication SPE-2000.

Canadian Deviations are included in this Standard. /

1. Domaine d'application

La presente norme specifie les prescriptions de securite pour ballasts pour lampes a decharge telles que les lampes a vapeur de mercure a haute pression, a vapeur de sodium a basse pression, a vapeur de sodium a haute pression et aux halogenures metalliques. La section un comprend les prescriptions generales et la section deux les prescriptions thermiques et mecaniques. La norme concerne les ballasts du type inductif pour courant alternatif jusqu'a 1 000 V, de frequence egale a 50 Hz ou 60 Hz, associes a des lampes a decharge dont la puissance nominale, les dimensions et les caracteristiques sont indiquees dans les normes de la CEI qui leur sont applicables, selon les P ublications 188, 192 et 662 de la CEI.

Les essais objets de la presente norme sont des essais de type. Les prescriptions d'essai individuel des ballasts en production n'y sont pas incluses.

Notes (1) Certains types de lampes a decharge necessitent un amorceur. (2) Les ballasts pour lampes a decharge tubulaires a fluorescence sont specifies dans la Publication 920 de la CEI.

La presente norme peut aussi s'appliquer aux ballasts du type inductif associes aux lampes a decharge indiquees dans la norme ANSI pertinente.

Cette norme vise la securite des appareils concus pour etre installes sur des derivations d'au plus 750 V et utilises conformement au Code canadien de l'electricite, Premiere partie.

Note. Les fabricants qui concoivent des produits pour le marche canadien pourront trouver un resume utile des exigences relatives aux appareils du CCE, Premiere partie dans la publication CSA SPE-2000.

Cette norme comprend des Exigences propres au Canada.
