Held Dec. 5, 2012, the third annual Control This! conference, sponsored by the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) New York chapter, offered the latest developments in lighting controls and energy management.
Solid-state lighting (SSL) is shaping up to be a remarkably complex technology, combining the sciences of light and color with the potential to provide many features that were previously unattainable in a lighting system.
These days, building owners and facility managers have important reasons to use the most efficient lighting equipment and control systems. A new study prepared by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Berkeley, Calif., indicates that today’s lighting control techniques can reduce lighting energy an average of 24% to 38% in commercial buildings.
Held on March 21 at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York, the Sixth Annual LEDucation conference, presented by The Designers Lighting Forum of New York (DLFNY) with the support of the New York Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society (IESNA), helped more than 2,000 lighting industry professionals learn more about solid-state light sources, standards, and controls.
LEDs have unique and compelling characteristics that make them ideal for industrial lighting applications. But there are a variety of misconceptions about LEDs, how well they work, how long they last, and more. Digital Lumens developed this whitepaper to dish up the facts around LEDs and address some common misunderstandings....More
An arc flash is associated with the explosive release of energy caused by an electrical arc, due to either a phase-to-ground or a phase-to-phase fault. This kind of fault can result from many factors – a dropped tool, accidental contact with electrical systems, buildup of conductive dust, corrosion or improper work conditions.....More
Abstract: In this webinar, Mike will not only explain the current NEC requirements for GFCIs and AFCIs, but he'll explain how they operate, what causes their premature failure, and when they won't provide the safety protection you might have thought they would.
