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.
For decades, versatility and potential cost savings have spurred the use of medium voltage variable frequency drives (VFDs) in a wide range of applications. From pipelines with fluctuating flows to mine conveyors with variable throughput,...More
Testing for earth ground resistance is essential for two important reasons: safety and equipment uptime. Without an effective grounding system, fault currents have no safe path to ground, and those current will find unintended paths that could include people. Poor grounding is also a cause of poor power quality....More
