The DesignLights Consortium (DLC) recently released a new version of its technical requirements for networked lighting controls, aiming to encourage wider market adoption of this energy-saving and smart building-enabling technology by focusing on issues it says are key to increasing customer confidence.
Different types of dimming curves may be incorporated in dimmers, software for lighting control systems, and output devices like LED drivers irrespective of the actual protocol used to communicate between them.
Let’s talk about dimming and dimming curves, and a variety of attributes that you should consider, inquire about, then specify what you actually want.
