The DesignLights Consortium recently announced the new membership of its Industry Advisory Committee (IAC), an 18-member body that will support the mission and strategic direction of the DLC to drive efficient lighting through education, collaboration, and expertise in 2021 and 2022.
This month, we explore a powerful lighting controls installation at Capital One’s new corporate headquarters in McLean, Virginia.
Designed to install in just minutes, the ZR-RK Series Retrofit Kit delivers DLC Premium efficiency with 135 LPW and 85+ CRI performance in a code compliant form factor that eliminates the need to open the plenum or remove the existing troffer. Now customers can retrofit more spaces in schools and healthcare with increased lumen packages and new intelligent control options including Cree® Lighting’s SmartCast Intelligence Platform™ and Lutron® Vive® or Lutron® EcoSystem® embedded controls.
This month, we explore a robust lighting controls solution used to implement tunable-white and circadian lighting and achieve WELL certification at Alvine Engineering’s corporate headquarters.
Because of the new features provided by many lighting control systems, such as the ability to change colors, some drivers now available in the market are also “programmable.” What does this mean? And why would you want to use programmable drivers?
Industry journalist Craig DiLouie, LC, CLCP recently interviewed Matt Ochs, Senior Marketing Director, Lutron Electronics for an article for ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR. The topic: the role lighting controls can play in risk mitigation during the pandemic. Here’s the transcript.
This month, we explore a dynamic lighting and controls installation at Arup’s offices in Los Angeles.
Lutron Electronics recently announced the ability to integrate its Vive Wireless control as part of an Extron touchpanel solution. This collaboration brings simple, web-based API integration of Vive Wireless lighting control to today’s smart-building projects. Now facility managers can combine advanced lighting control with features such as room booking, A/V control of displays, plus other equipment from the convenience of their Extron touchpanel.
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.
With Lutron’s lighting designer app for the Athena System, one can program and personalize scenes in real-time, right in the space from an iOS device.
