NTCIP 1213 Object Definitions for Electrical and Lighting Management Systems (ELMS)
The standard specifies objects for the features, functionality, and point of interoperability for ELMS equipment. ELMS equipment is a telemetry-based remote monitoring and control system for highway lighting. ELMS is an effective tool for lowering costs, improving maintenance management, reducing liability, implementing lighting curfews, and increasing safety. This standardization effort creates a common set of features and functionality, and defines the point of interoperability.
