IEC 62386-101:2014 is applicable to system components in a bus system for control by digital signals of electronic lighting equipment. This electronic lighting equipment should be in line with the requirements of IEC 61347, with the addition of d.c. supplies. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) collection of all bus timing requirements defined in IEC 62386-101:2009 and IEC 62386-102:2009 and rework of the timing requirements to facilitate the preparation of a future control devices standard, taking particular account of the requirements for multi-master systems. The 10 % tolerances have been replaced by minimum and maximum timing values;
b) integration of multi-master timing requirements;
c) extension of the defined forward frames;
d) addition of wiring requirements;
e) improvement of the bus power supply requirements;
f) improvement of test sequences and description of the test sequences in the form of pseudo code instead of flow charts.
This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 62386-102:2014 .
