The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published two ANSI C136 series standards for roadway and area lighting equipment: C136.15-2011 “American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Luminaire Field Identification” and ANSI C136.36A-2010 “American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment—Aluminum Lighting Poles”. Both were produced by the ANSI Committee 136 for Roadway and Area Lighting. C136.15 provides marking guidance for outdoor luminaires using a variety of light sources. This revision incorporates labelling and marking guidance for solid state, fluorescent, plasma, and induction lighting. The standard is intended to be used by utilities and area lighting planners that install and maintain roadway and area lighting systems. C136.36A, a new standard, details construction and performance specs for aluminum lighting poles as used in roadway and area lighting applications.
