The Lighting Controls Association now offers EE302, Part 4: Luminaire-Level Lighting Controls (LLLC) as a new course in its popular Education Express program.
Luminaire-level lighting controls (LLLC), also called embedded controls, are lighting control systems in which sensors and controllers are installed within luminaires to enable autonomous, individual luminaire control. By making each luminaire a control point, control is highly flexible, responsive, and therefore generally more energy-saving. Serving as a preview for an upcoming Education Express course, this article describes LLLC technology, system types, advantages and disadvantages, studies characterizing energy savings and cost, and what’s familiar and distinctive in regards to design and installation.
In this article published in LD+A, Telensa’s Cindy Brewbaker lays out a seven-point case for smart street lighting.
Moderated by Michael Colligan, this episode of Get a Grip on Lighting pits two lighting thinkers in a spirited debate over whether 0-10V or digital lighting control has the edge in projects subject to value engineering.
In this article published in LD+A, the official publication of the Illuminating Engineering Society, Manuel Lopez and Keith Graeber of the California Lighting Technology Center evaluate networked lighting control system metering and reporting capabilities.
In this special lighting controls edition of the Get a Grip on Lighting podcast, C. Webster Marsh and Ron Kuszmar interview Steve Mesh about the state of lighting controls.
Harmonization of international standards related to DALI lighting control continues with the publication of the updated ANSI C137.4-2021 standard in North America.
As part of its educational webinar series, the Illuminating Engineering Society invites the lighting community to attend a webinar on Thursday, April 28 at 12:00 PM ET. The webinar is free to IES members and is titled, “A New Sales Pitch.” The topic: finding and communicating the value of non-energy benefits for networked lighting controls.
Craig DiLouie recently had the opportunity to interview Craig Casey, Building Science Leader at Lutron Electronics, about luminaire-level lighting controls (LLLC) for an upcoming article for tED Magazine, the official publication of the NAED. Transcript follows.
