Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19748007A1] The invention relates to an interface device (1) that receives an external control signal (a) intended for the lamp operating device and supplies relevant information (b) on lamp operation to the lamp operating device which can be connected to the interface device (1) on the output side of said control signal (a). To this end, the interface device (1) has switching means (30, 40) enabling the lamp operating device that can be connected to the interface device (1) to be turned on and/or off depending on the control signal (a) received so that the lamp operating device connected to the interface device (1) can be dimmed depending on the external control signal (a) and can be also switched by means of the interface device (1) with practically no power consumption.
