ASC C136 covers all types of street and area lighting, including lamp types, pole construction and support, tunnel lighting, enclosed architectural luminaires, system selection guides, lighting controls, ingress protection, and ancillary devices.

ANSI Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) C136 is publishing a new outdoor lighting Standard: C136.58-2019 Luminaire Four-Pin Extension Module and Receptacle— Physical and Electrical Interchangeability and Testing.

Committee work is continuing on several other new Standards:

  • 50 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Revenue Grade Energy Measurement Devices within a Locking Type Control Device
  • 52 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—LED Drivers with Integral Energy Management
  • 54 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Occupancy or Motion Sensors for Roadway and Area Luminaires
  • C136.57 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Wall Pack Luminaires for Exterior Lighting

In addition to new Standards, ASC C136 maintains and revises existing Standards, including in-progress revisions of the following documents:

  • 14 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Elliptically Shaped, Enclosed Side- Mounted Luminaires for Horizontal Burning High-Intensity Discharge Lamps
  • 15 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Luminaire Field Identification
  • 35 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Locking Type Power Taps (LTPT)
  • 41 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Dimming Control Between an External Locking Type Photocontrol and Ballast or Driver

The committee is open to all materially affected and interested parties. However, to achieve and maintain balance, C136 is actively seeking additional Members in the Pole Manufacturer and General Interest categories. If interested, please contact David Richmond at David.Richmond@nema.org. ei
