This month, we explore a robust lighting controls installation at the Ford Foundation in New York City.
Lighting control design continues to evolve toward smaller control zones for flexibility, energy savings, and responsiveness. This is the topic of the most recent controls column that Charles Knuffke, Systems Vice President and Evangelist for Wattstopper and Chair of the Lighting Controls Association, contributed to LD+A Magazine.
The Lighting Controls Association is proud to announce the latest offerings in lighting controls from industry-leading manufacturers. Check them out!
The latest in Wattstopper’s Digital Lighting Management (DLM) solution, the Plenum-rated Wireless Room Controller (LMRC-611MCC-A) is designed to meet Chicago plenum requirements. The LMRC is engineered to neatly fit within an approved junction box for Chicago or meet local codes where all high- and low-voltage wiring must be inside a rigid electrical conduit.
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?
Legrand recently announced the purchase of Focal Point, strengthening its position in specification-grade architectural lighting solutions for commercial buildings in the United States.
On November 14, 2019, at 12 PM ET, Wattstopper, Legrand’s Charles Knuffke (vice chair and incoming chair of the Lighting Controls Association) will present a webinar hosted by the Illuminating Engineering Society, “Wireless Lighting: Security Basics (Definitions of Authentication, Encryption, and Certificates).”
Legrand has partnered with Luxury Products Group (LPG), the nation’s premier buying group of luxury kitchen and bath products, lighting and appliances, to offer its adorne Collection for distribution within the company’s network of kitchen and bath showrooms.
Legrand recently introduced the Legrand Home Smart Lighting for Apple HomeKit. The new smart switches, dimmers, and plug-ins connect to a home’s WiFi network without the need for a hub, allowing iOS users to easily and securely control their lighting when at home or away using an iPhone or iPad — as well as via Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant voice-enabled products.
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).
