Intermediate Lighting Controls Training
Thursday, February 25, 2021 - 8:30am to 12:30pm
49 slots available
Training Overview:

If you’ve taken a basic-level class on NLCs (Networked Lighting Controls), then this is the next step in understanding these systems. This class will address issues such as code requirements and how different NLCs deal with zoning. We will also briefly discuss “IoT”. One part of the class will be devoted to a discussion about “Avoiding Deployment Pitfalls” based on an actual research project using four different systems. Lastly, we will go into a fair amount of detail about “color-changing” and “tunable-white” technology, which has an impact on circadian rhythms, human health and well-being.

Event Benefits:

After completing this class, you will have:
• An understanding of the basic code requirements for lighting controls.
• Significant knowledge about how different NLCs deal with zoning of the system components.
• A broad overview of IoT (“Internet of Things”) as it relates to lighting control systems.
• An awareness of common pitfalls to avoid during an NLC deployment.
• Knowledge of different kinds of color-changing equipment.

Who Should Attend:

Building Owners, Managers, Consultants, EVERSOURCE Engineers, NGRID Engineers, Electrical Engineers, Utility Vendors, and all those interested in Advanced Lighting Systems.
