Leviton recently announced that the Leviton Load Center with Smart Circuit Breakers has won the prestigious 2019 HOBI (Home Building Industry) Awards ‘Best Option Upgrade’ award for its placement at the 2019 This Old House Idea Home in New Canaan, CT.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) today welcomed passage by the United States Senate in an 89-10 vote of legislation to implement the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
Universal Lighting Technologies, Inc., a member of the Panasonic Group, recently introduced 180W PWX LED drivers. These drivers are ideal for outdoor luminaire applications, such as street, roadway and site area lighting, as well as indoor highbays using non-Class 2 drivers.
Next month, the 2016 version of ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, takes effect as the national energy reference standard, based on a 2018 Department of Energy (DOE) ruling. By February 2020, all states must adopt a commercial building energy code at least as stringent as the standard, or justify why they cannot comply.
This month, we will explore an innovative installation of lighting and controls as part of an office renovation at Bristol-Myers Squibb in Lawrenceville, NJ.
The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will present a love, one-hour webinar, “Lighting Controls: What works? Lessons from the Field” from 1-2 PM ET on January 14, 2020.
When it made the decision to relocate its Washington D.C. office, Michael Best LLC mapped out a laundry list of both critical and aspirational items it wanted to incorporate into the design of its new space. LED lighting controlled by color temperature tuning capabilities was at the top of the list. What began as an item on the wish list is now one of the first commercial office environments where SpectraSync™ Color Tuning Technology from Hubbell Control Solutions is being used.
From 12-1 PM ET on January 16, 2020, the Illuminating Engineering Society will host a webinar on wireless lighting controls produced by the Lighting Controls Association.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) praised the U.S. House of Representatives for passing legislation to implement the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) in a bipartisan 385-41 vote on December 19.
DMX-controlled tunable dynamic white luminaires are luminaires that use DMX controls to change their correlated color temperature (CCT) on demand, which provides a dramatic design tool to the modern lighting designer. These luminaires are different from dynamic color changing luminaires because instead of using colored LEDs, they use a mix of white LEDs such as warm white, neutral white, and cool white. When these hues are mixed at different intensities, the overall delivered CCT of the luminaire changes. It is very important to have a robust controls system specifically designed and programmed for the control of tunable dynamic white luminaires. Any compatible controller will control a DMX tunable white luminaire and can adjust from one hue to another, but that’s only half the story …
