NEMA Standard Provides Specifications for Street and Area Lighting

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published ANSI C136.58-2019 “Luminaire Four-Pin Extension Module and Receptacle—Physical and Electrical Interchangeability and Testing”. This standard provides mechanical and electrical specifications for interfacing street and area lighting with controls and sensor accessories.

“The new ANSI C136.58 Standard will allow our industry to use the Zhaga Book 18 interface for installation or removal of various types of sensors on our LED outdoor lighting luminaires,” says Kevin Fitzmaurice, principle Engineer, Lighting & Smart Services, Georgia Power, and chair of ANSI Roadway and Area Lighting Committee.

This standard was developed for use by roadway and area lighting manufacturers, municipalities, and utilities.

ANSI C136.58-2019 is available in hard copy and electronic download on the NEMA website.

The NEMA Lighting Systems Division, as the secretariat of ANSI ASC C136 for Roadway and Area Lighting, is looking for industry experts specifically in the underrepresented categories of “Producer Poles” and “General Interest” to participate in Standards development activities. Please contact NEMA at [email protected] if you are interested and indicate your interest category and area of expertise.
