ESTA Launches Three New Standards Projects
2001-08-01

The Entertainment Services and Technology Association has launched projects to draft three new American National Standards: BSR E1.18, BSR E1.19 and BSR E1.20.

BSR E1.18, Recommended practice for the selection, installation, use, and maintenance of single-conductor portable power feeder cable in the entertainment industry. The standard is intended to offer guidance on how to select, install, use and maintain single-conductor portable power feeder cables. The project will promote safety and compatibility in the equipment and practices used in live performance and in film and video production in North America. This is a project of the Electrical Power Working Group.

BSR E1.19, Recommendations for the use of ground fault devices in the entertainment industry. The standard is intended to offer guidance on how to select, install, use and maintain ground fault protection devices in the entertainment industry. The project is intended to promote the use of these devices to protect people and property from hazards associated with using electrical equipment in wet locations, such as when pools of water are used on stage or a location video-shoot is conducted in the rain, and to promote reliability and avoid nuisance tripping. This too is a project of the Electrical Power Working Group.

BSR E1.20, Remote device management over USITT DMX512. This is a project of the Control Protocols Working Group, and is intended to provide a means of bi-directional communication over a USITT DMX512/1990 data link between an entertainment lighting controller and a remotely controlled dimmer, moving light, or other device. The protocol being developed is also intended to work with the BSR E1.11 lighting control protocol, which is another project in the same working group.

Interested parties are invited to become involved in these projects. Information about getting involved is available on this website, or can be obtained by contacting the Technical Standards Manager. Membership in ESTA is not a requirement to participate in any working group or in any working group project.
