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) 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 Controller (NLC) device in an outdoor lighting application.
This Standard helps define energy measurement in networked lighting control devices in street lights, allowing for more accurate street light energy use data on poles where multiple systems with different owners are present.
This Standard is written for roadway and area lighting component manufacturers, municipal and regional governments specifying outdoor lighting solutions, streetlighting offices/bureaus, and utility companies.
ANSI C136.50-2021 is available on the NEMA website for $78.
