PLSN Staff • News • December 13, 2010

NEW YORK – Two draft standards have been posted for public review on the ESTA website through Feb. 7, 2011: BSR E1.6-2-201x, Entertainment Technology – Design, Inspection, and Maintenance of Electric Chain Hoists for the Entertainment Industry, and BSR E1.37-1-201x, Additional Message Sets for ANSI E1.20 (RDM) – Part 1, Dimmer Message Sets, which is part of the BSR E1.37 project to add additional features to RDM. The latter draft standard, BSR E1.37-1-201x, provides additional get/set parameter messages (PIDs) that are intended for, but are not limited to, use with entertainment lighting dimming systems. These additional messages allow access to configuration parameters commonly found in many theatrical dimming systems.


Members of the public who are interested in the use of chain hoists in the entertainment industry or in possible enhancements to RDM to help the remote management of dimmers are invited to comment on the draft standards.
