The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published a new white paper NEMA LS 20003-2021 Standby Power Measurements for LED Drivers—Recommended Allowances for Feature Sets Other Than Lighting, for LED driver manufacturers and testing laboratories. Developed alongside ANSI C82.16, the two documents should be read in conjunction with each other. NEMA Lighting Controls Technical Committee Chair Stephen Irving says the publication “strikes the right balance between minimizing standby power usage and ensuring that smart-enabled LED driver features remain available to customers. It can be used by manufacturers during the design of new products and by other standards-setting bodies when considering limits for LED driver standby power usage.”
