National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published ANSI C136.31-2018
American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Luminaire
Vibration. Developed by the ANSI Committee for Roadway and Area Lighting, this
Standard describes the minimum vibration capability and vibration test methods
for roadway and area luminaires.
“This revision includes
clarification and guidance on the requirements for test setup, value
determination and measurement, operation, and evaluation. Furthermore, the vibration
test levels were expanded to include common materials found in newer lighting technologies,”
said Luke Siefker, Standard Technical Coordinator, Acuity Brands.
