The transfer of luminaire data between manufacturers, software developers, and end users has made apparent the need for a standard format for luminaire data transfer.
This document (LM-74) describes a flexible, single file system that can be used for both small and large amounts of data. Here, data is presented in a structured XML format. This allows software developers to readily incorporate the data into their products, or permits lighting designers and other end users to utilize the data directly.
This is the first version of a developing standard. It establishes the rules and guidelines for creating a Luminaire Component Data file.
