August 26, 2014 - U.S. DOE revised its October 2103 report, Dimming LEDs with Phase-Cut Dimmers: The Specifier's Process for Maximizing Success, to include recommendation of NEMA lighting standard, NEMA SSL 7A-2013 Phase Cut Dimming for Solid State Lighting: Basic Compatibility. Report specifies that for wall-box installation, NEMA SSL 7A-compliant dimmer be used with compliant LED sources. Pairing these products guarantees compatibility and ensures dimmer will not negate dimming claims of lamp/luminaire.

ROSSLYN, Va., —The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) revised its October 2013 report, Dimming LEDs with Phase-Cut Dimmers: The Specifier's Process for Maximizing Success, to include a recommendation of a National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) lighting standard, NEMA SSL 7A-2013 Phase Cut Dimming for Solid State Lighting: Basic Compatibility.

DOE’s report specifies that for wall-box installation, a NEMA SSL 7A-compliant dimmer be used with compliant LED (light-emitting diodes) sources. Pairing these products guarantees a level of compatibility and ensures the dimmer will not negate the dimming claims of the lamp or luminaire.

According to NEMA President and CEO Kevin J. Cosgriff, this is an example of proactive partnering between business and regulators.

“Our job, as an association representing manufacturers, is to ensure that their products are met with a positive regulatory environment. We are pleased that DOE recommends using SSL 7A,” he said.
