    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides performance requirements for ballasts, excluding resistance types, for use on a.c. supplies up to 1000 V at 50 Hz or 60 Hz, associated with tubular fluorescent lamps with pre-heated cathodes operated with or without a starter or starting device and having rated wattages, dimensions and characteristics as specified in IEC 60081 and 60901. Applies to complete ballasts and their component parts such as resistors, transformers and capacitors.
