The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published LSD 44 Solid State Lighting—The Need for a New Generation of Sockets & Interconnects.

The white paper includes a background discussion of lighting sockets and interconnects, from the Edison bulb to the present. It argues for the necessity of standards on solid state lighting to foster technological advancement within the industry, benefiting users and manufacturers.

“LSD 44 heralds the importance of developing new standards for sockets and interconnects,” said Kevin Dowling, chairman of the committee that produced the paper. “It is essential to develop designs for tomorrow’s lighting solutions in order to encourage innovation, achieve optimum performance, and advance new lighting technology.”
