Webinar: Taming Controls Complexity

September 1, 2022 12:00 PM ET

Challenges with configuration, commissioning, and maintaining control settings over time have slowed progress towards integrated lighting and building system controls. Overcoming such challenges can enable energy savings, adaptive lighting for occupant alertness and wellbeing, and better space management in buildings. This webinar will explore some practical solutions to address controls complexity, including development of a clear and concise sequence of operations, the use of controls narratives, and online tools and templates to make these solutions more accessible.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Webinar: How We Light Outdoor Spaces, The New Rules
Oct 11 @ 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm

Presentation on ANSI/IES RP-8-21 and TM-15-20, exploring the new rules for lighting outdoor spaces, and how we got here.

About this event
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

In creating ANSI/IES RP8-21, Recommended Practice for Design and Maintenance of Roadway and Parking Facility Lighting, the Illuminating Engineering Society, in chapter 17, changed the way we look at lighting in parking lots and parking garages. We are now able to conform with lower light levels if we have a better uniformity ratio. In this presentation we will explore this and some of the underlying studies that brought us to this point and the application of the standard.

We will also explore TM-15-20, Lighting Classification System, also know as BUG ratings. As part of this we will explain why the old cutoff rating system no longer exists for LED fixtures and absolute vs relative photometry, LM-79.
