Technical Requirements Resources
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 resource outlines an alternative approach for thermal testing of products with tightly packed LED arrays under SSL Technical Requirements V5.1, and defines circumstances in which it is appropriate to test products using the alternative approach.
