The RDM standard is extended over time. It is divided up as:

    • ANSI E1.37-1 – 2012: Additional message sets for dimmers
    • ANSI E1.37-2 – 2015: Additional message sets for IP configuration
    • ANSI E1.37-7 – 2019, Additional Message Sets for Gateway & Splitter Configuration Messages
  • ANSI E1.33 – 2019: Message Transport and Device Management of ANSI E1.20 (RDM) over IP Networks
