NEMA High-Intensity Discharge Lamps Standard Now Available

A new version of ANSI C78.380 American National Standard for Electric Lamps—High-Intensity Discharge Lamps was released by ANSI Accredited Standards Committee C78, as announced by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA). This standard describes a system for the designation of high-intensity discharge lamps, and includes compact, enclosed-arc discharge light sources such as mercury, metal halide, high-pressure sodium, and similar types of lamps. For convenience, low-pressure sodium lamps, although technically not high-intensity discharge lamps, are included with the group. Revisions to ANSI 78.380 include a new reference section and general edits. To participate in standards development activities, contact NEMA at
