The Lighting Controls Association is pleased to announce that all courses in its popular Education Express online continuing education system are now downloadable as PDFs.
As the commercial lighting industry continues its steady move towards more advanced controls and lighting solutions, for many experts, all signs point to networked lighting controls. And when it comes to truly intelligent, flexible lighting with non-energy benefits, the future could be Luminaire Level Lighting Controls (LLLCs). A subset of networked lighting controls, LLLCs include integrated sensors and control in each fixture. To better understand this trend, Anne Curran, Senior Program Manager for the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance’s Luminaire Level Lighting Controls initiative, interviewed Chris Meek, Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Washington. Here’s the transcript.
LSI Industries Inc., recently announced that it has named Michael Prachar as Vice President for Lighting Products.
The Lighting Controls Association (LCA) now offers EE203: Lighting Controls and Commercial Energy Codes, Part 3: ASHRAE/IES 90.1-2016 and IECC 2018, as a new course in its popular Education Express program.
Legrand’s adorne Touch Tru-Universal Dimmers are designed to operate with virtually any dimmable lamp, load, and luminaire on typical residential and light commercial wiring (with the exception of 0-10V LED drivers).
Using Wi-Fi connectivity, a central data hub, and intelligent circuit breakers, the Leviton Load Center offers excellent opportunities for energy management.
Lutron Electronics has created a holistic approach to humancentric lighting: Lutron HXL. The Lutron HXL approach combines four elements of lighting design to allow people to be, work, and feel their best: Quality Light, Natural Light, Connection to the Outdoors, and Adaptive and Personalized control.
Enlighted, a Siemens company, recently announced new lighting control capabilities have been added to its award-winning building Internet of Things (IoT) Platform. These include advanced tunable white lighting control, daylight harvesting group capabilities, and a two-wire interface for the company’s powerful sensors. Together, these new advancements can improve the health and well-being of building occupants, improve lighting aesthetics, simplify fixture integration, and reduce costs.
This article provides general introductory knowledge about the lighting control requirements imposed by the 2016 version of ASHRAE/IES 90.1 and the 2018 version of the IECC.
New from Echoflex, an ETC company, the ELED3 Tri-Zone Dimming Controller is a wireless lighting controller that includes three 0-10V low-voltage dimming channels.
