NEMA Publishes Standard For Utility Industry End Device Data Tables

May 7, 2015—The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) published ANSI C12.19-2012 American National Standard For Utility Industry End Device Data Tables. In its third release, this standard establishes a new baseline document that includes all of the corrections that were applied in Annex N, “Listing of editorial errors and errors of omission in ANSI C12.19-2008,” of IEEE Std 1377-2012.

ANSI C12.19 was developed by the NEMA's Electrical Metering Group and ANSI Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) 12, Subcommittee 17, Data Communication Protocols. It defines a table structure for utility application data to be passed between an end device and any other device. It neither defines device design criteria nor specifies the language or protocol used to transport the data. The tables defined in this standard represent a data structure that shall be used to transport the data, not necessarily the data storage format used inside the end device.

ANSI C12.19-2012 may be downloaded or purchased in hard copy for $323 on the NEMA website.
