The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published NEMA 410-2011 Performance Testing for Lighting Controls and Switching Devices with Electronic Drivers and Discharge Ballasts. NEMA 410 provides guidance for the design and testing of lighting controls and switching devices to be used with electronic drivers, discharge ballasts, and self-ballasted lamps to assist in establishing and verifying compatibility between products. This standard has been expanded to encompass additional types of lighting technology, and numerous figures and test circuit diagrams and designs have been added. NEMA 410 may be downloaded free here.

The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) recently announced that it entered into a five-year agreement with the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) to sponsor a new Control Innovation Award as part of the IES’s prestigious Illumination Awards. Twenty projects were submitted in the Award’s first year. IES intends to make a formal announcement in August. However, we are pleased to be able to announce that seven projects were recognized with an IES Illumination Award of Merit, and one of these is being recognized with a higher award. Stay tuned, as further announcements will follow later in the summer.
