One new RDM extension standard published and another new one in Public Review!

February 26, 2012

ANSI E1.37-1 (Additional Message Sets for RDM – Part 1, Dimmer Message Sets) has recently been published by PLASA.  This new standard is an extension to ANSI E1.20 (RDM) which provides a number of new RDM messages (PIDs) primarily geared towards dimming systems but also includes a variety of general purpose RDM messages that are useful in across a very broad range of products.

The full listing of new messages available and link to purchase ANSI E1.37-1 from the ESTA Foundation can be found at

With E1.37-1 now published, work has moved on to BSR E1.37-2 which defines additional RDM messages for remotely configuring network interfaces.  With more and more devices also using network interfaces BSR E1.37-2 provides a means to remotely configure these network settings.  BSR E1.37-2 is now in public review until April 23.  Anyone wishing to review and submit comments during the E1.37-2 Public Review may do so by downloading the draft document and comment review form from PLASA at:
