Safety
1.1
Definition of Symbols
Stop (Stop Danger). This symbol warns of serious danger of severe injury to
persons. It must be strictly observed.
Attention (Warning). This symbol indicates information the non-observance of
which can lead to extensive damage to property. The safety warning must be
strictly observed.
1.2
Information. This symbol indicates key information on use. Non-observance can
lead to failure.
Safety Advice
The ELC must be installed and connected in compliance with existing
regulations and practices. This is e.g. EN 60204-1 in Europe.
Repairs on the ELC may only be carried out by the manufacturer.
The installation and starting up may only be carried out by skilled electricians.
Do not open the ELC before it is disconnected from the mains. BEWARE OF
RESIDUAL VOLTAGE! The unit may still be live up to three minutes after it has
been switched off.

The ELC causes a leakage current greater than 3.5 mA!
Safeguarding by means of leakage current protection type A and type AC
according to IEC 60755 is not permitted!
The ELC operates in principle as a frequency converter and is equipped with a
mains filter whose leakage current could activate fuse protection.
Contact to the grounding connector must always be ensured.
Additional measures must be taken to ensure that there is no danger when
touching the appliance. This could be by means of a universal leakage current
protection type B, taking into consideration the increased response threshold, or
by means of an independent equipotential connection
1.3
Correct operation
The ELC is an electrical unit intended to be installed in the switch cabinets of
industrial high-voltage power installations. It is conceived as an electronic ballast
for the operation of lamps intended for this purpose.
Any other use is deemed as misuse. The manufacturer will not assume liability
for damage resulting from misuse.
A pre-requisite for authorised operation of the ELC is the observance of both the
operating and maintenance instructions and the safety advice.
1.4
Extended use
Extended use beyond the operating specifications as stated is not permitted.
The manufacturer will not assume liability if the equipment is used in any other
way. The operator acts at his own risk.
Any operation beyond the scope of the authorised operation is considered to be
misuse.

Description of functions
page 3
Description of functions
The electronic ballast ELC is designed to operate medium pressure discharge lamps as
described in chapter 6. The appliances of type ELC N2x have two outputs which means that
two UV lamps can be connected and each operated separately.
In contrast to conventional ballasts (inductive lamp ballast or transformer or transformer with
transductor), the lamp with an electronic ballast is operated with high frequency (approx.
100 kHz). The lamp does not flicker and dimming is infinitely adjustable to a range between
20 % and 100 % of the electric power or to between 15 % and 100 % of the UV radiation
respectively.
Dimming
The possibility of dimming the lamp has two advantages. Firstly the lamp can be switched to
minimum load (standby operation) during longer idle times and energy can thus be saved.
Secondly the optimum lamp power can be determined and adjusted as appropriate.
Power control
The ELC offers a high level of lamp power constancy due to its integrated power control.
Variations in operating voltage of ± 10 % do not affect lamp power.
Ignition device
When the lamp is switched on the ELC initiates trigger pulses to fire the lamp; a separate
ignition device is not required.
Other performance characteristics
• High level of electrical efficiency.
• The ELC has a network power factor of > 0.9. It can be operated directly at the network
without compensation.
• The potential-free control inputs allow various lamp conditions such as maximum lamp
power, dimming or standby to be set.
• The digital control inputs are designed for control voltages of between 10 and 30 V AC or
DC. Therefore ELC can be easily integrated into the installation’s electric system.
• Lamp current and lamp power are continuously recorded and output as analogous
0-10 V signals.
•
The ELC monitors the lamp cables for earth fault.
•
The potential of both lamp outputs is separated from that of the supply voltage.
•
The ELC is both short-circuit proof and safe in open circuit operation at the lamp output.

Installation
3.1
Mounting of casing
The ELC must be installed in a control cabinet with at least IP 54 protection (see
EN 60529). Operation without a control cabinet or in a control cabinet with a
lower degree of protection is not permitted.
The ELC may only be installed vertically (control connections at the bottom,
power connection at the top) allowing for at least the minimum spacing as
shown. No other positioning is possible.
Fig. 1 and Fig. 2 show the installation possibilities.
The ELC should not be mounted in the immediate proximity of sensitive
electronic equipment. An appropriate distance must be maintained to scatter
field transformers or other inductors.
The flow of cool air in ELC must be safeguarded. The ambient temperature must
not exceed the values described in chapter 6!.
The switching cabinet has to be air conditioned in consideration of total electrical
losses and maximum ambient temperature.
If the air conditioning is realised by fans the minimum required air flow is
described in chapter 6. The better the cooling situation the higher the expected
lifetime.
Impure cooling air could affect the functionality of the ELC. This can be avoided
by installing a fine air filter.

Explanations of the control functions for ELC
3.4.1
Release relay
The release relay indicates the trouble-free operation of the unit.
This means that the relay closes when the ELC (see 4.2) is switched on and remains closed
during operation providing there is no defect.
A typical defect would be that the lamp does not fire.
3.4.2
Control input START
High: lamp is on
Low: lamp is off
By applying the High signal the lamp is fired and warms up at maximum current until the
desired power is achieved (see below).
We recommend warm-up at maximum power. After a short time (approx. 2 mins) the full
output has been reached and the lamp power can be varied as desired.
3.4.3
Setting lamp power
Stepless (infinitely variable)
The lamp can be dimmed steplessly from between approx. 20 % to 100 % of the nominal
power. The lamp power is set by applying an analog voltage of between 0 V and 10 V to
control input SET VALUE.
•
•
0 V corresponds to min. power Pmin
(20 % of nominal value)
10 V corresponds to max. power Pmax (100 % of nominal value)
SET VALUE can be controlled manually by means of an external potentiometre.

Earth fault control
The ELC (electronic ballast) has been fitted with an earth fault control system for test
purposes (prototype).
The ELC is fitted with an earth fault relay ES for the purpose of indicating an earth fault.
During trouble-free operation the relay is closed (provided the ELC is connected to the power
supply voltage).
The earth fault control is also active when the lamp is switched off.
The lamp should not be switched on is the relay ES is open.
In the case of an earth fault through the insulating
resistor R_error (see Fig. 7) the relay ES opens .
Lamp
The error is only displayed, the ELC does not switch
off the lamp. The error is also not stored by the ELC.
ES

R_error
Control
In order for the earth fault control to function properly
it is essential that it be connected as prescribed,
particularly the earth connectors.
The relay contact ES (pins 8 and 13 on the control
connector) opens when the insulation resistance
R_error is drops below approx. 200 kOhm.
Fig. 8: Earth Fault Control
If an earth fault occurs during lamp operation we recommend shutting down the
installation rapidly and correcting the error. The lamp must not be started if
earth fault has occurred.
In order to avoid an unwanted reaction of the earth fault control during faultless
operation, the isolation resistance of the lamp cables and all lamp connectors
must be greater than 10 Mohm.
If the release relay RELEASE (s. 3.4.1) is open the earth fault relay ES will not
give clear information! In this case an error message “earth fault“ should not be
issued.

Operation of ELC
4.1
Initial operation
The operative parameters of the ELC, such as the scope of the trigger pulse when switching
on the lamp, is set by the manufacturer.
Alterations to the manufacturer’s settings can only be carried out by the
manufacturer. Adjustment to the internal potentiometer can cause malfunction
and damage to the equipment and is therefore prohibited.
You always have to ensure that the correct lamp type is used (see chapter 6) and that all
wireing is properly connected !
4.2
Switching on the ELC
• The ELC is switched on by applying the operating voltage.
4.3
Switching on the lamp
• A HIGH signal is applied to the digital START control input to switch on the lamp.
If a HIGH signal has already been given to the digital START control input before
the ELC is switched on, then the lamp will not start up. In the case of a power
failure, the ELC cannot automatically switch on the lamp when power returns.
Before switching on the lamp, a LOW signal must be applied to the digital control
input.
Turn the ELC on maximum lamp power during the lamp warm-up period.
Maximum lamp power can be adjusted as follows:
• HIGH signal at the digital MAX control input or
• 10 V control voltage at the analogous SET VALUE control input.
During warm-up the lamp power stays at a very low level over a longer period of time and
after approximately 60 seconds rapidly increases to its nominal power. The lamp is operated
with increased power until the nominal power is reached.

4.4
Operation of ELC
page 18
Dimming Operation
After having reached nominal operation, the desired lamp power can be infinitely adjusted.
• Lamp power is adjusted via control voltage (0 – 10 V) at the analogous SET VALUE
control input.
In this context, 0 V are tantamount to minimum and 10 V to maximum lamp power.
4.5
The adjustment of lamp power via the analogous SET VALUE control input is
only possible if a LOW signal is applied to the digital MIN and MAX control
inputs.
Standby Operation
During longer idle times the ELC can be switched to standby operation. The lamp is operated
at minimum power but can be brought up to nominal power within a few seconds.
Standby operation is set as follows:
• a HIGH signal at the digital MIN control input or
• 0 V control voltage at the analogous SET VALUE control input.
The warm-up time from standby operation to nominal operation depends on the lamp's
ambient conditions. If cooling is too intensive during standby operation, the acceleration time
is prolonged.
4.6
The adjustment of standby operation is only possible if a LOW signal is applied
to the digital control input MAX.
Switching off the Lamp
• The lamp is switched off by applying a LOW signal to the digital START control input.
In order to avoid heat accumulation in the ELC, the operating voltage should be
left on for a few minutes. Before restarting, the lamp must be sufficiently cooled
down as it cannot be fired otherwise.
