The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published two new roadway and area lighting equipment standards: ANSI C136.25 “Ingress Protection (Resistance to Dust, Solid Objects, and Moisture) for Luminaire Enclosures” and ANSI C136.35 “Luminaire Electrical Ancillary Devices (LEAD)”.

C136.25 provides guidance for protecting luminaires from ingress based
on the anticipated environment and explains how to describe the
enclosure’s degree of protection. The standard also includes suggested
ratings for ANSI C136 equipment.

C136.35 presents information on the electrical and mechanical
interchangeability of electrical devices mounted on or in luminaires,
brackets, or remotely mounted on the support structure of the
luminaire, and that may draw power from the luminaire.
