BSR E1.24 Pin Connector Standard Is Available for Public Review
BSR E1.24, Entertainment Technology - Dimensional Requirements for Stage Pin Connectors, is available for review through 18 October 2005. The draft standard is a configuration standard covering the dimensional requirements and mechanical requirements related to intermateability for a series of split-pin and sleeve wiring devices known as Pin Connectors or Stage Pin Connectors that are used predominately in the theatre, television and motion picture industries in North America. It is not a safety standard. The public review materials are available at http://www.esta.org/tsp/documents/public_review_docs.php.
Please look for protected intellectual property in the draft BSR E1.24 standard. ESTA and Accredited Standards Committee E1 do not warrant that their standards contain no protected intellectual property, but they do not intend to adopt any standard that requires the use of protected intellectual property, unless that property is necessary for technical reasons and can be licensed and used by anyone without prejudice or preference for a reasonable fee. If you see any protected intellectual property in the document, please point it out in your comments.
BSR E1.24 is a project of the Electrical Power Working Group. The Working Group is seeking new voting members in the interest categories of general interest and dealer/rental companies, in that order of priority. ESTA's Technical Standards Program uses five interest categories. Mass-market producers are manufacturers whose main business (over 50%) is in making standard products not customized for particular customers. Custom-market producers are manufacturers whose main business (over 50%) is making products that are tailored to the needs of particular customers. Dealer/rental companies are dealers or rental companies, people whose main business is selling or renting equipment to others. Users are people or companies who use the equipment. General interest is the general purpose category for all who would be affected by standards written by the working group but who do not fit into one of the above categories. Examples would be consultants or companies that do such a variety of business in a subject area that no one thing (renting or manufacturing, for example) could be considered over 50% of the business.
The Electrical Power Working Group would like to have more voting members that sell or rent power distribution equipment to others or that would be members of the general interest category. Anyone in one of these two categories and who is willing to attend working group meetings regularly is invited to join. The general purpose working group membership application is available from the ESTA website at http://www.esta.org/tsp/about/workgroups.html.
