2001-03-21

The American National Standards Institute's Board of Standards Review approved E1.3-2001, Entertainment Technology - Lighting Control Systems - 0 to 10V Analog Control Specification, on 21 March 2001. It is a standard for using DC voltages from zero to 10V to control lighting devices.

The American National Standards Institute's Board of Standards Review approved E1.3-2001, Entertainment Technology - Lighting Control Systems - 0 to 10V Analog Control Specification, on 21 March 2001. It is a standard for using DC voltages from zero to 10V to control lighting devices. This used to be a very common control method. It has been superceded in parts of the entertainment lighting market by DMX512 and other digital protocols, but a significant portion of the entertainment industry still makes, sells, and uses 0-10V equipment. It is particularly important in the custom market on projects where specifiers want a simple and easy to trouble-shoot protocol. The standard's consensus-based specifications for the electrical characteristics of the analog signal, transmitters, and receivers help simplify the specification, design, and supply of analog control equipment.
