The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) recently published the 2022 Electrical Standards & Products Guide (ESPG), which is the electroindustry’s go-to resource for 1,000 standards and technical documents, product categories, and the manufacturers of those products. This year’s edition features 20 new documents published in 2021.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published two new standards for reporting energy data and tagging metadata.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) recently published NEMA LS 20003-2021 Standby Power Measurements for LED Drivers—Recommended Allowances for Feature Sets Other Than Lighting. This new white paper recommends standby power allowances, based on available features, for regulators to consider when setting limits on LED driver standby power. It was developed along with the test procedures contained in ANSI C82.16 and should be read together with it.
The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) now offers EE203: Lighting Controls and Energy Codes, Part 4: California Title 24, Part 6 (2019) as a new learning module in its popular Education Express program.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) recently published Automatic Receptacle Control—Manufacturer Best Practice Checklist Technical Bulletin (NEMA HB 70000-2021). This best practice checklist guides manufacturers of automatic receptacle control wiring devices and systems (commonly called plug load control) to achieve successful installation, good end-user experience, and maximized energy efficiency with the technology deployment.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) recently published American National Standard for Lighting Equipment—LED Drivers Robustness (ANSI C82.15-2021), which applies to hardware and microcontroller and microprocessor-based LED drivers. This American National Standard describes testing methods used to evaluate LED drivers’ robustness or their ability to withstand the specific stresses.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Energy Measurement for a Network Lighting Control (NLC) Device with a Locking-Type Receptacle (ANSI C136.50-2021). This is a new Standard that describes methods and requirements for the measurement of energy consumption and the reporting of the consumption for a network lighting control (NLC) device in an outdoor lighting application.
Americans for a Clean Energy Grid (ACEG)—a diverse coalition focused on expanding, integrating, and modernizing the North American high-voltage grid—has elected National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) Vice President Operations Patrick Hughes as President.
In the fall of 2021, the Lighting Controls Association (LCA) invited subscribers of lightingCONTROL, its monthly newsletter, to participate in a survey. The goal of the survey was to determine satisfaction with LCA services.
The International Trade Administration (ITA) announced the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) as one of its grantees to expand U.S. participation in technical standards related to advanced manufacturing systems. Under its Market Development Cooperator Program, partnerships are established between ITA and non-profit industry groups for targeted projects that promote U.S. exports in international markets and remove, reduce, or prevent trade barriers.
