ANSI Accredited Standards Committee C82 Publishes ANSI C82.16-2015 American National Standard for Light-Emitting Diode Drivers-Methods of Measurement



ROSSLYN, Va., —The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) announced that ANSI Accredited Standards Committee C82 published ANSI C82.16-2015 American National Standard for Light-Emitting Diode Drivers—Methods of Measurement. This standard describes the procedures to be followed and the precautions to be taken in measuring performance of LED drivers. The scope includes, but is not limited to, LED drivers with these characteristics:



General lighting, exterior lighting, and roadway lighting applications

Input supply voltage up to 600 VDC or 600 VAC (50 or 60 Hz)

Output open-circuit voltage of 600 V or less

Constant-current or constant-voltage DC output

Fixed, variable (dimmable), pulse width modulation, or programmable (tunable) output power

External (standalone) or internal (enclosed in luminaire)



ANSI C82.16-2015 is available in hard copy or electronic download for $145 on the NEMA website.



NEMA’s Lighting Systems Division, as secretariat of ANSI’s ASC C82 for Electric Ballasts, is looking for industry experts in the User and General Interest categories to participate in standards development activities. Contact NEMA at nemalighting@nema.org if you are interested. Please indicate your interest category and your area of expertise.
