UPDATED 7/14/2022 - Now includes information on the PSA standard. Through research and outreach, the DLC has identified several cybersecurity standards and services that satisfy the cybersecurity criteria in the NLC5 Technical Requirements. To help manufacturers and other users find an appropriate standard and/or service for their networked lighting control system, this resource provides additional information on each standard and service and summarizes their application.
- Summaries of cybersecurity services and standards recognized by the DLC (updated 7/14/22 to include PSA standard)
- Descriptions of the primary application and timeline for certification of the cybersecurity standards listed in Tables CS-1 & CS-2 of the DLC NLC5 Technical Requirements
This whitepaper describes various proposals to make DLC requirements and recommendations for energy reporting more useful to a broader audience. The proposals are based on the new ANSI standards and on input from a working group convened in Q4 2021 comprised of representatives from DLC member efficiency programs and DLC industry partners.
- Energy efficiency programs have varying requirements for energy reporting, creating burden for manufacturers to create a unique reporting function for each program.
- This whitepaper describes various proposals to make DLC requirements and recommendations for energy reporting more useful to a broader audience.
- These proposed changes are being made available in advance of a public comment period so that stakeholders can consider implementation and prepare accordingly.
