DOE: Updated Model Specification for Networked Outdoor Lighting Control Systems

The U.S. Department of Energy's Municipal Solid-State Street Lighting Consortium (MSSLC) has released an update to its Model Specification for Adaptive Control and Remote Monitoring of LED Roadway Luminaires, V1.0. The new resource has been renamed to better reflect its evolving scope. The new Model Specification for Networked Outdoor Lighting Control Systems, V2.0 is intended to help cities, utilities, and other local agencies accelerate their adoption of systems that can further reduce the energy and maintenance costs of operating their streetlights.

The Model Specification remains a work in progress, a living document that reflects user experiences and the changing commercial market. Major updates in V2.0 include:

The introduction of a Backhaul Communication Network section, with associated requirements.

Separation of the Start-Up and Commissioning sections, with updated or enhanced requirements for both.

Further refinement focused on facilitating independent bids for Central Management System(s), Backhaul Communication Network(s), and Field Devices. The latter focuses on improving user ability to tender multivendor, multi-bid projects.

More user notes, new and updated references to industry standards activities, and continued clarification of specifications recommended for all users vs. those deemed optional and likely to be only required by some users.
