NEMA Publishes Standard for Fluorescent Replacement and Retrofit LED Lamps

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has 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,” says Andrew Jackson, manager, Lighting Test Center Americas Signify North America Corp., 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 lighting standard covers all types of fluorescent replacement and retrofit Tubular LED (TLED) systems.

ANSI C78.54-2019 is available in hard copy or as an electronic download on the NEMA website.
