National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published ANSI C78.54-2019
American National Standard for Electric Lamps—Specification Sheet for
Tubular Fluorescent Replacement and Retrofit LED Lamps, which standardizes
the specification sheet, or data reporting format, as the means of communicating
critical lamp characteristics.
“This new Standard identifies key performance and application elements
that LED-based tubular lamp consumers can use to better select and compare different
products,” said Andrew Jackson, Manager, Lighting Test Center Americas Signify
North America Corporation, committee chairman of the ANSI Section for Electric
Lamps. “Also, the Standard should help clear up any confusion related to input
electrical parameters for both users and those measuring lamp performance.”
This new lighting Standard
covers all types of fluorescent replacement and retrofit Tubular LED (TLED)
ANSI C78.54-2019 is available
in hard copy or as an electronic download for $100 on the NEMA website.
