LIGHTING CONTROLS
Helvar has been providing lighting
control solutions for several decades.
Our solutions include luminaire
control, single room control, up to
whole building integrated controls.
LED technology has become a cost effective and energy
efficient alternative for many lighting applications. Helvars
product roadmap is aligned to target viable LED lighting
applications.
Helvars continuous investments in R&D aim to support our
customers in making a successful transition to LED control.

control over interoperable open protocols such as Ethernet,


DALI, and EnOcean, or delivering real energy savings to meet
customers needs.
A new aspect of using LED is colour control. Whilst colour
isnt new to lighting control, LED & DALI combine together to
provide new opportunities for control. Helvar can deliver the
right colour, at the right time, and at the right level.
Innovation is at the heart of all Helvar products. The next
generation of Helvar controls include our Intelligent Colour.
Delivering all the benefits of control, and with minimum
effort in programming. Whether its full-colour sequences
(RGBW), tuneable white with circadian rhythm, or just simple
white light.

INTEGRATION
Energy saving is a key benefit from
any control system and modern
building management is increasingly
required to deliver those savings.
Integration plays a key role in this as
more and more facilities managers
and owners are choosing systems
that not only report their own usage,
but are able to communicate with
other building systems and deliver
cross system automation.

68

NEXT

It is now essential for a commercial lighting control system


to be able to report on its energy usage, emergency testing
and lighting faults to the user. With integration this is
possible, whether it is on a web-enabled device, BMS, or
other system.
Integration of open protocols, such as DALI, DMX, BACnet,
EnOcean, Ethernet is now possible. Helvar is a member
of DALI AG, EnOcean Alliance, and a partner of Tridiums
Niagara AX framework, which provides our customers
with a vast opportunity to integrate different systems in an
intelligent manner.
Helvars continuing investment in integration capabilities
extends beyond our free-to-license Niagara drivers and
HelvarNet protocol. We are dedicated to developing products
that facilitate integration and deliver the efficiency savings
our clients require. Please check the Helvar website for the
latest information - www.helvar.com.

COLOUR
The latest generation of Designer is name iC Intelligent
Colour. Utilising the new DALI Type 8 protocol for LED
drivers allows improved control. Colour-enabled devices are
automatically recognised by the routers. Designer iC provides
one-click selection of colour, temperature, or level.
A suite of user interfaces provide the ideal visualisation
tools. The scene table and channel graph now include colour
as well as level, along with the usual copy/paste and multiselect features.

DRAG/DROP
Many of the new features can be accessed by use of drag/
drop. Devices can be added to the new groups view, allowing
very quick configuration.

RESOLUTION
The demands of new LED-based projects require improved
resolution. Levels can now be programmed down to a level
of just 0.1%

DESIGN
With Designer it is possible to create off-line designs from the office, or
program on-line to create or fine tune the lighting system design. Three
levels of password protection are available to secure the system data.
Scene data can be transferred to and from other Microsoft packages
such as Excel.

PREV

COMMISSIONING
An important function of Designer software is the commissioning of
Helvar system devices. This is typically a one-off exercise done upon
completion of the physical device installation. During this first stage, all
system devices are identified, tested, named and grouped.

INDEX

FIND

PROGRAMMING
During this stage the intelligence of the system devices is programmed.
The programmed functionality is determined by the demands of the
lighting designer or end user.
Functions include:
Scenes and fade times
Links, sequences and conditional logic
Multisensor intelligence
Room partition functionality

INTEGRATION - OPC & ETHERNET I/O (HELVARNET)


Many building systems are converging and require some level of
integration. For this the following integration features are available:
The OPC module offers an interface (OPC server) for open connectivity,
interactive control and data exchange between Helvar router systems
and external host systems such as an HVAC (OPC client).
The Ethernet I/O module offers a tool for direct router system access.
Ethernet commands (either TCP or UDP) can be used to control and
monitor the router system. Alternatively, a Helvar router can send
Ethernet commands to external Ethernet enabled devices. Applications
include direct PC access to Helvars system for custom front-end
software solutions; Panel PC for intuitive user interfacing and control
of e.g. Ethernet enabled Audio/Video gateway. For more information on
how to use Ethernet I/O commands please refer to the Designer help
file.

TouchStudio Runtime application ensures the execution of
the graphical project folder on the physical device. Included in
the Editor is a simulator that allows the programmer to test
the graphical design before uploading it to the physical user
interface. Once the runtime is installed and configured the
graphical user interface will communicate via the Ethernet
backbone to the Helvar router system (905, 910 and 920).

The TouchStudio software provides the programmer with a


library of graphical components to choose from, to assist

LED wiring & connectivity


LED
TOC

Helvar have a range of LED drivers suited for either in-built and independent luminaire usage. In order to have safe and reliable LED driver
operation, the LED luminaires will need to comply with the relevant standards and regulations (e.g. IEC/EN 60598-1). The LED luminaire
shall be designed to adequately protect the LED drivers from dust, moisture and pollution. The luminaire manufacturer is responsible for
the correct choice and installation of the LED drivers according to the application and product datasheets. Specifications of the LED drivers
may never exceed the operating conditions as per the product datasheets.

Wiring considerations
Wire type and cross section

Installation & operational considerations


Maximum tc temperature

Wiring insulation

Reliable operation and lifetime is only guaranteed if the maximum


tc point temperature is not exceeded under the conditions of use.

According to recommendations in EN 60598


Maximum wire lengths

Strain Relief for independent use

Wire connections
Please refer to datasheets connections diagram
Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCB)

Some of the Helvar LED drivers allow use both inside the
luminaire and outside the luminaire, via a strain relief. The strain
relief provides reliable fastening method for the mains and LED
output wiring.
Ensure that the LED driver does not exceed temperature higher
than specified on the product datasheets.

Type-C MCBs with trip characteristics in according to EN 60898


are recommended. Please refer to page 102 for the exact
maximum number of LED drivers per MCB.

The general preferred installation position of LED drivers is to


have the top cover facing upwards.

LED driver earthing

Switch-Control

LED drivers are designed to support different luminaire


classifications, like Class I or Class II fittings (no earth required).
Please check the individual LED driver type for its exact safety
class rating.

The Helvar DALI dimmable LED drivers feature Switch-Control.


This feature provides basic On/Off and Up/Down dimming
functionality through a standard momentary switch.

For Helvar LED drivers to have a reliable operation and EMC


performance, the luminaires are expected to have an earth
connection. Earth connection can be left out if luminaire safety is
guaranteed by its construction.

Switch-Control and DALI controls may not be connected


simultaneously.
For more accurate Switch-Control operational information
please refer to page 122 (EB section)

When using a SELV-rated LED driver, then the SELV driver output
has to be insulated from the luminaire earth connection (ref.
EN60598-1 luminaire standard).

EL-sc 1-10 V BALLASTS


The fully electronic, microprocessor-controlled EL-sc
ballasts offer significant performance advantages over other
solutions, especially with regard to energy efficiency, lighting
quality and comfort.
In addition, the EL-sc range has a multi-control feature
allowing for dimming either by an analogue 1-10 VDC signal
or by a contact closure (Switch-Control). This dimming
method is unique in that both control methods can be used
simultaneously, offering a high degree of flexibility in lighting
design.

- OPTIMUM CATHODE CONTROL

The proven OCCTM


- Optimum Cathode Control
technology used in Helvar EL-s, EL-sc, EL-iDim and ELTCs electronic ballast ranges.
OCCTM ensures that the electrical parameters supplied
to the lamp are always optimum, minimising system
losses and maximising lamp lifetime. The achieved
energy saving is considerable compared to existing
ballasts on the market.

Continuous research and


development in new technologies
has led to the introduction of a host
of innovative products over the years.
Among the latest of these are the
EL-ngn5 standard electronic ballasts.

EL-ngn5 SETTING NEW STANDARDS


These ballasts are characterized by excellent thermal design,
resulting in the highest energy savings and highest reliability,
and embodying Helvars green values that help to guarantee
minimum environmental impact!
Helvar uses only the highest-quality components and
materials in the manufacture of its ballasts, and combines
this with quality design and extensive testing under the
harshest conditions. Its hardly surprising then that failure
rates are among the lowest in the market, exceeding
industrial expectations 10-fold!
Helvars manufacturing processes are also certified to ISO
9001 and ISO14001.

Helvar has once again set a new standard for T5 high


performance electronic ballasts with EL-ngn5 range. Its
single lamp versions up to 54 W has a length of only 190 mm
with a height of 21 mm. This offers a great possibilities for
luminaire designers in designing sleek T5 luminaires without
compromises.
The superior safety and EMC performance make them
suitable for use in protection class II fittings. Moreover, its
multi-lamp operation feature enables one ballast to drive all
HET5 lamps in an installation. It is also possible to drive a
combination of T5/TC-L lamps with one ballast. This offers
major advantages in reduced logistics and transportation
costs, as well as contributing to reduced CO2 emissions.

EL-ngn THE NEXT GENERATION

EL-s MANY IMITATORS, FEW EQUALS

The EL-ngn is a high specification electronic ballast range


for high-volume T8 markets from Helvar. Its no-compromise
design offers the highest specifications, and its green
credentials are confirmed by the fact that it has the highest
Energy Efficiency Index. It is also considered to be one of the
most user-friendly ballasts, and its proven reliability means
that it is widely accepted by even the most demanding and
quality-conscious OEMs.

EL-s is a high-performance ballast meeting the market


requirements. It was also the first slim-line ballast in the
market, with a height of only 21 mm. The feature was so
much appreciated by the OEMs that its been copied by all
Helvars competitors and has become an industry standard.
It is also possible to drive a combination of T8/TC-L lamps
with one ballast.

The EL-ngn is available for T8 lamps in 1-, 2- and 4-lamp


configurations.

EL-es THE ECO SAVER


The EL-es is a electronic ballast range for high-volume T8
markets from Helvar. It is developed to meet the needs of
luminaire designers looking to replace magnetic ballasts
with an electronic version combining the benefits of both!
The EL-es is available for T8 lamps in 2- and 4-lamp
configurations.

EL-TCs THE COOL RUNNER

NEXT

INDEX

FIND

BACK

EL-TCs range is capable of driving as many as 50 lamps in


various TC-DE, TC-TE, TC-SE, TC-DD, T5c, TC-L, TC-F, PLR,
T8 and T5 lamp combinations! The beauty of the ballasts is
their dual-technology that cost-effectively combines both
single- and twin- lamp versions into one ballast.
Whats more, the EL-TCs is surprisingly small, yet it is still
capable of running cool even under full thermal stress,
thanks to its OCC technology and the clever thermal design
of its PCB. This feature has been praised by many OEMs and
it is widely acknowledged to be the most reliable CFL ballast
in the market.

1) Not ENEC approved


2) Can also be used as a bi-power ballast, see page 149
3) Measured with a certain operating lamp openly mounted. Measurement results may vary from lamp to lamp
4) Product has tw140
5) BEC = Ballast efficiency class, EEI = Energy Efficiency Index
Note: P in ballast type name means built-in thermal protector (eg. NK100/70SEP)

Operating instructions
The circuit power can be reduced by using a power reduction ballast with extra tapping for higher impedance, together with a power reduction switch.
Lamps must always be ignited with the higher rated wattage of a ballast and not switched down to reduced wattage before 10 minutes of normal
operation after the ignition of a lamp.

Reliable operation and lifetime is only guaranteed if the maximum


tc point temperature is not exceeded under the conditions of use

Wire cross section dimensions

See Characteristics table

Frequent switching

Wire connections
As shown on the ballast label and the Wiring Diagram datasheets
Wire preparation

Helvar warm start ballasts may be used in conjunction with


occupancy sensors (PIR) as long as the OFF period is greater
than 1 minute. Frequently used OFF periods shorter than 1
minute may reduce lamp life

Strip length 7.5 mm 1 mm

Master / Slave connection

Wiring capacitance

Not advised

80 pF / metre (max. for adviced wire lengths)

Switching off one lamp via lamp wires

Wire insertion force

Not permitted

8 Newtons (typical)

Starting aid

Wire release from ballast

For a reliable lamp ignition the use of metal starting aid is


recommended

(See detailed release instructions on page 168)


Wiring layout
Keep all wiring as short as possible (particularly the Hot wires see Wiring Diagrams datasheets)
Hot wires should be of equal length
Cold wires should be of equal length
Always run mains wiring, lamp wiring and low voltage control
wiring separate from each other
Do not run hot and cold lamp wires bunched together
Lamp wires of two or more separate ballast should not be run
together

For reliable starting (and electrical safety) all metal parts of the
fitting must be at the same electrical potential as the ballast case
Reflector position
Placing a reflector or metal plate very close to the lamp may
increase RFI emissions and cause excessive leakage current of
the fitting
See lamp standards for recommendations
Fitting components
Ensure the correct electrical ratings for the lamps are used (e.g.
500V rated lampholders are required for T5 lamps)
Ballast mounting position
Ensure that the entire length of the ballast lies against a flat
surface to ensure good heat dissipation

Instructions for use - electronic ballasts for fluorescent lamps


TOC

Installation & operational considerations


Class II luminaires:
Helvar electronic ballasts can be used in suitably designed class II
luminaires. The following points must be very carefully noted:
EL-sc and EL-iDim / EL-iDim-c ballasts must have functional
earth connected
Luminaire standard EN 60598 provides full details of the
requirements for class II luminaires
Starting aid may be required for reliable operating and EMC
performance
Lamp burn in:
Brand new lamps may occasionally have an uneven distribution of
internal gases. This can lead to unreliable starting or uneven light
distribution from the lamp. Helvar recommend that new lamps
are operated at full output (burnt in) for 100 hours prior to being
dimmed.
DALI controls:
Currently the DALI standard only governs compatibility of load
interfaces such as electronic ballasts and LED drivers. For other
units, like sensors and control devices, the compatibility assurance is
in process. Until the standard for these is finalised, the total system
compatibility must be ensured at the system design / integrator stage.

Stand-by function
The stand-by function is designed specifically as a protection for the
ballast. It will switch the lamps off when an end of lifetime condition
occurs. Lamps can also fail in many other ways. As such, the exact
operating state of the ballast under other lamp fault conditions
depends on the specific failure. The ballast will not be harmed
under any normal lamp failure condition. Ballasts can be reset from
stand-by either by switching the mains supply off and then on, or by
replacing the faulty lamps.
Lamp end of lifetime
Behaviour of the ballast at end of lamp life time:
IEC 61347-2-3 17.2.
If the lamp electrical characteristics (e.g. lamp voltage) exceed
the ballast internal preset values, the ballast will recognise that
a lamp/s has reached the end of its useful operational life. The
ballast will then switch off the supply to the lamps to prevent
unnecessary stress to the circuit.

Emergency inverter units


Due to our continuing program of product development and
improvement, Helvar ballast designs are evolving constantly. This
natural evolution may affect compatibility between our electronic
ballasts and emergency conversion modules. It is therefore the
responsibility of either the fitting manufacturer, emergency unit
supplier and/or system integrator to ensure the used combination
is fully compatible.
Emergency inverter unit recommendations
Use a 4 pole changeover device, with all 4 poles being used to
disconnect the lamp.
Disconnect the mains supply from the ballast before disconnecting
the emergency lamp, and prior to the lamps connection to the
emergency unit.
Reconnect the emergency lamp to the ballast before applying the
mains supply.
For multiple lamp ballasts, the wiring lengths for emergency and
non-emergency lamps should be equal.

Site considerations
Insulation resistance testing on an installation
Carry out insulation resistance testing with the fittings disconnected
from the mains supply (the fitting has already been tested by the
manufacturer)
If fittings are connected to the mains supply during an insulation
resistance test, all Live phases and Neutral must be connected
together before the test is carried out.
Ensure correct reconnection before the mains supply is reapplied.
Mixed technology on the same electrical circuit
Do not mix magnetic and electronic ballasts on the same electrical
circuit. The energy spikes from magnetic ballasts may damage
electronic ballasts.
Infra-red (IR) system
Fluorescent lamps emit not only visible light, but also infra-red
light. In some cases this may cause interference to IR systems. To
minimise problems the IR system should have a reduced receiving
area. To guarantee successful functionality the manufacturer of the
IR system should be contacted prior to installation. Helvar ballasts
typically operate at frequencies rarely used in IR applications.
3-phase supplies
Do not apply power to the ballast / fitting without the Neutral
conductor connected.
Do not disconnect the Neutral conductor unless the supply is off.
Miniature Circuit Breakers (Please refer page 162)
Type C MCBs with trip characteristics in according to EN 60898
are recommended.
'Type B MCBs are not recommended due to their sensitivity. If
used, load only to 60 % of the equivalent Type C MCB.

Installation & operational considerations


Ballast earthing
Required for safety
Lifetime
Reliable operation and lifetime is only guaranteed if the
maximum winding temperature of tw 130 C is not exceeded
under the conditions of normal use
Ballast mounting
The ballast must be located in such a position as to ensure that
its maximum winding temperature of tw 130 C is not exceeded
under the conditions of normal use
Mount the ballast against a flat surface to ensure good heat
dissipation
Starting aid
For reliable starting (and electrical safety) all metal parts of the
fitting must be at the same electrical potential as the ballast
case
Fitting components
Ensure the correct electrical ratings for the lamps being used
Ignitor choice
Helvar ballasts for Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium lamps
are only suitable for use with superimposed pulse type ignitors
Pulsar type ignitors (where a high starting voltage is applied to
the ballast windings) are not suitable for Helvar ballasts. If used,
the ballast winding insulation will be subjected to increased
load. This will drastically shorten the ballast lifetime

Noise avoidance
Ensure the ballast is securely fixed within the luminaire
Fix the ballast at a minimum distance of 3mm from the side of
the fitting
Ensure that the fitting is of rigid construction (especially at the
point where the ballast is fitted)
In large fittings the ballast should be separated from the fitting
by mounting it on an aluminium plate (approx. 2 mm thick)
Mount as few ballasts as possible in one fitting
If using multiple ballasts in a fitting, ensure that the ballasts are
mounted as far as possible from each other

Type C MCBs having trip characteristics in accordance with
EN 60898 are recommended.
Type B MCBs are not recommended due to their sensitivity. If

MCB

Reflector position
Situating a reflector or metal plate very close to the lamp may
increase RFI emissions and cause excessive leakage current of
the fitting
Protection against lamp rectification
Metal Halide & High-Pressure Sodium lamps can begin to
rectify as they reach the end of their operational lifetime.
This can cause excessive temperature in a fitting. As such,
it is recommended that thermal protection be fitted in these
luminaires
A thermal protection device should be fitted inside the luminaire
Helvar ballasts for Metal Halide & High-Pressure Sodium lamps
are available also with internal thermal protectors (P-types)
Use of ignitors with a timer facility also provide some protection
against lamprectification. Use in conjunction with a thermal
protector
