Semi-integrated LED lamps for general lighting services with supply voltages not exceeding 50 V a.c. r.m.s. or 120 V ripple free d.c. - Safety specification (IEC 62838:2015)

This International Standard specifies the safety and interchangeability requirements, together
with the test methods and conditions, required to show compliance of LED lamps with
integrated means for stable operation, intended for domestic and similar general lighting
purposes, having:
– a rated power up to 60 W
– a rated voltage equal to or less than 50 V a.c. r.m.s. or equal or less 120 V ripple free d.c.,
– caps according to Table 1.
NOTE 1 The value of 60 W rated power is under consideration. Heat management may require lower power.
This standard shall be used for products in conjunction with ELV lighting installations.
With reference to IEC 60364-7-715, in ELV lighting installations only SELV sources are
applied. Where bare conductors are used, the maximum lamp voltage shall be 25 V a.c. or
60 V d.c.
The requirements of this standard relate only to type testing.
For lamps > 25 V a.c. or 60 V d.c., recommendations for whole production testing or batch
testing are given in IEC 60598-1 Table Q.1, column class III luminaire, column 4 or 5.
NOTE 2 Where in this standard the term “lamp(s)” is used, it is understood to stand for semi-integrated LED
lamp(s) with supply voltages as in the scope above, except where it is obviously assigned to other types of lamps.
An overview of systems composed of LED modules, lamps and controlgear is given in
IEC 62504. Supply voltage does not mean necessarily mains voltage, e.g. 230 V / 50 Hz. A
semi-integrated LED lamp can also be driven on a supply voltage with 12 V a.c. or d.c. The
control unit in the controlgear in a semi-integrated LED lamp then provides the conversion of
12 V a.c. or d.c. to a special current and voltage to power the LED inside the semi-integrated
LED lamp. Schematically, the types of LEDni and LEDsi lamps are shown in Figure 1.

LED-Lampen mit eingebautem Vorschaltgerät für Allgemeinbeleuchtungszwecke mit Versorgungsspannungen nicht über 50 V effektiver Wechselspannung oder 120 V welligkeitsfreier Gleichspannung – Sicherheitsanforderungen

Lampes à DEL semi-intégrées pour l'éclairage général fonctionnant à des tensions d'alimentation ne dépassant pas 50 V en courant alternatif efficace ou 120 V en courant continu lisse - Spécifications de sécurité

L'IEC 62838:2015 spécifie les exigences de sécurité et d'interchangeabilité ainsi que les méthodes d'essai et les conditions exigées pour assurer la conformité des lampes à LED dotées de moyens intégrés permettant un fonctionnement stable, destinées à un usage domestique et à des usages d'éclairage général analogues.

Polintegrirane sijalke LED za splošno razsvetljavo z napajalnimi napetostmi, ki ne presegajo efektivne izmenične napetosti 50 V ali nevalovite enosmerne napetosti 120 V - Varnostna specifikacija (IEC 62838:2015)

Ta mednarodni standard določa zahteve za varnost in zamenljivost vključno s preskusnimi metodami in pogoji, ki so potrebni za preverjanje skladnosti sijalk LED z vključenimi sredstvi za stabilno delovanje, ki so namenjene za domačo in podobno splošno razsvetljavo ter imajo:
– nazivno moč do 60 W;
– nazivno napetost do in vključno s 50 V efektivne izmenične napetosti ali do in vključno s 120 V nevalovite enosmerne napetosti;
– vznožki po preglednici 1.
OPOMBA 1: Nazivna moč 60 W je v obravnavi. Za regulacijo toplote se lahko potrebuje manj moči. Standard je treba uporabljati za izdelke v povezavi z inštalacijami razsvetljave z električno napeljavo nizke napetosti. Skladno s standardom IEC 60364-7-715 se v inštalacijah razsvetljave z električno napeljavo nizke napetosti uporabljajo samo viri SELV. Če se uporabljajo neizolirani vodniki, je največja izmenična napetost sijalk 25 V ali enosmerna 60 V.
Zahteve iz tega standarda se nanašajo samo na tipsko preskušanje. Za sijalke z izmenično napetostjo, večjo od 25 V, ali enosmerno napetostjo 60 V, so priporočila za preskušanje celotne proizvodnje ali serije podana v standardu IEC 60598-1, preglednica Q.1, razred stolpcev III – svetilke, stolpec 4 ali 5. OPOMBA 2: Izraz »sijalka« v tem standardu označuje polintegrirane sijalke LED z napajalnimi napetostmi, ki so navedene zgoraj, razen ko se izraz očitno uporablja za druge vrste sijalk. Pregled sistema, ki je sestavljen iz modulov LED, sijalk in stikalne naprave, je podan v standardu IEC 62504. Napajalna napetost ne pomeni nujno napetosti električnega omrežja, npr. 230 V/50 Hz. Polintegrirane sijalke LED se lahko napajajo tudi na izmenični ali enosmerni napajalni napetosti 12 V. V tem primeru krmilna enota stikalne naprave polintegrirane sijalke LED pretvori izmenično ali enosmerno napetost 12 V v tok in napetost, ki sta primerna za napajanje diode LED v polintegrirani sijalki LED. Vrste sijalk LEDni in LEDsi so prikazane na shemi na sliki 1.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 62838 has been prepared by subcommittee 34A: Lamps, of IEC
