Part 1 - Ballasts for Use with Fluorescent Lamps
These requirements apply to ballasts of the resistance, reactance, and electronic (solid state) types for use with fluorescent lamps, involving potentials of 2500 V to ground or less during either starting or running conditions, whether intended for mounting in a luminaire or otherwise, and designed to be employed on circuits of not more than 600 V between supply conductors in accordance with the Rules of Part I of the Canadian Electrical Code. /
Part 2 - Ballasts for Use with High-Intensity Discharge Lamps
This Part of the Standard applies to ballasts for use with high-intensity electric discharge lamps of the metallic vapour types including low-pressure sodium and similar types, intended for permanent installation on branch circuits of not more than 600 V between conductors, in accordance with the Rules of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I.
This Part of the Standard does not apply to ballasts intended for use in cold cathode, luminous tube (neon), and xenon lamps as specified in CSA Standard C22.2 No. 13. /
Part 3 - Ancillary Equipment - Starters, Holders
These requirements apply to starters of both the automatic and manual types that are intended for use in conjunction with fluorescent ballasts covered in Part I of this Standard for the operation of preheat type electric-discharge lamps, in accordance with the Rules of Part I of the Canadian Electrical Code.
