NEMA Publishes Standard For Solid State Light Sources Used In Roadway And Area Lighting
September 21, 2011

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published ANSI C136.37 for Solid State Light Sources Used in Roadway and Area Lighting.

The first solid state lighting (SSL) standard produced by ANSI accredited standards committee C136.37, this standard defines interchangeability and some requirements for SSL source fixtures (also referred to as luminaires and LED or light-emitting diode fixtures). References to existing regional and international SSL standards are used to recommend guidance to utilities and manufacturers for harmonized solutions and expectations. C136.37 includes requirements for operating temperature, correlated color temperature, mounting provisions, dimming, ingress protection, and wiring and grounding.  In addition, C136.37 sets protocol for surge-test waveforms, the basic insulation test, and specific product ratings.

The contents and scope of C136.37 may be viewed at www.nema.org/stds/C136-37.cfm. A hard or electronic copy may be purchased for $52 by visiting global.ihs.com or by contacting IHS at 800-854-7179 (U.S. only), 303-397-7956 (international) or 303-397-2740 (fax).

NEMA is the association of electrical equipment manufacturers, founded in 1926 and headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. Its member companies manufacture a diverse set of products including power transmission and distribution equipment, lighting systems, factory automation and control systems, and medical diagnostic imaging systems. Worldwide annual sales of NEMA-scope products exceed $120 billion.
