Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, which makes solid-state light sources for illumination applications (including high-definition TVs, video projectors, avionics displays, and lighting systems), has joined the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), the US association of electrical and medical imaging equipment manufacturers (founded in 1926).

The 430 member companies manufacture products used in nine industry divisions, including the generation, transmission and distribution, control, and end use of electricity. Worldwide sales of NEMA-scope products exceed $120bn. Companies manufacturing electrical products in the USA are eligible to join NEMA.

Indoor and outdoor general lighting applications include street lighting, entertainment, architecture, automotive, medical and dental, avionics, manufacturing and machine vision, as well as display and digital signage markets.

“NEMA members are among the most significant electro-industry manufacturers in the world and Luminus is looking forward to becoming active in leading standards establishment, influencing energy-related legislation and legislation that impacts emerging technologies,” says president & CEO Keith T. S. Ward. “We also look forward to participating in NEMA’s enLIGHTen America initiative, which is aggressively promoting sustainability and energy savings through the application of the latest technologies in lighting,” he adds.
