GE Current, a Daintree company and Pointr recently announced a partnership to enable location-based services in large buildings such as retail premises, warehouses, workplaces, and distribution centers.
Lutron’s new Limelight Twist-Lock Radio Daylight Module makes it simple to add intelligent control to outdoor lighting applications. The Twist-Lock Module mounts to any standard ANSI C136.41 compliant dimming receptacle on outdoor fixtures in parking lots, pathways, and floodlighting applications. Simply plug in and twist into the socket on the fixture – the light is now ready to be added to a Limelight system for added security, enhanced energy savings, and improved system management.
This month, we explore a dynamic, complex, and award-winning lighting controls installation at Jewel Changi Airport in Singapore.
The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) now offers EE115: Integration and Building Automation as a new course in its popular Education Express program.
The previous post on Tunable-White Building Blocks talked about differences between using low-level analog control technology as opposed to networked lighting control (NLC) systems that employ digital communication between components. Analog technology such as 0-10V dimmers can in fact be used to control certain color-changing luminaires. Let’s be specific about which types. There are actually three main types of color-changing lighting systems – “dim-to-warm”, “tunable-white”, and “RGB.”
“Tunable-white and other forms of color-changing lighting have added an extra dimension of capability, flexibility, and complexity to the lighting industry,” writes Mesh. “It’s almost as though we’ve gone from a 2-dimensional world to a 3-dimensional world based on the added complexity of controlling the luminaire’s coloration (typically measured by Correlated Color Temperature
Produced by Intermatic, this very clever video modeled after the introduction to HBO’s GAME OF THRONES show illustrates how the company’s lighting control and HVAC/R solutions can improve occupant comfort, reduce maintenance costs, and deliver lasting value for a variety of application types.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has announced the establishment of its Healthcare Facilities Council (HFC) to help improve healthcare delivery environments while expanding market opportunities for manufacturers serving the healthcare facilities market. The HFC creates a forum for professionals to share knowledge and best practices in the area of healthcare delivery environments and execute projects that improve outcomes for the healthcare, electrical, and medical imaging industries.
This educational video, produced by the Lighting Controls Association, introduces the building industry to Eaton’s Pow-R-Command, a microprocessor-based programmable lighting and plug load control system.
Sensor Switch, an Acuity Brands, Inc. company, recently announced the Just One Touch (JOT) wireless solution, which enables single touch pairing of JOT-enabled controls, luminaires and other lighting controls capabilities without the need for 0-10V dimming wires, mobile apps or additional software. JOT-enabled products are integrated with a Bluetooth® radio to wirelessly control switching, dimming, daylight harvesting and detection.
