LEDucation  ( March 13th, NY Hilton Midtown )
Topic: Why ‘Compatibility’ is the Magic Word in controlling LEDs?Presenter: Manny Feris

Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Room: Nassau East Intermediate


Controlling LEDs today means dimming. Dimming LEDs is only easy when 'Compatibility is 100%, and that is either a magical or an exacting process. Since most of us are not Harry Potter, that means:

1) there has to be an exact match between the LED module/engine and the driver — almost always done by the lighting fixture manufacturer;
2) there has to be an exact compatibility match between the LED driver and the dimmer control — done by a variety of manufacturer/design/construction team members;
3) there has to be an exact compatibility match of the interconnecting wiring between fixture/driver and the dimmer control — done by the installing electrical contractor; and, most important;
4) there has been an exact compatibility match of industry terms/definitions and client expectations.

This last item requires the human interaction and understanding that we all started to learn in the 1st grade, but don't always have time to apply during the rush of design and construction. Creating and following a complete check list for success must be done early and re-confirmed every time a design/construction change is made—not really complicated, but not really a default process. Defining the vocabulary used in this check list and who is responsible for each step is the goal of this presentation. The presentation will include a list of the basic requirements to succeed in dimming LEDs, as well as advanced techniques that can be simply defined to allow a better chance of success in meeting design expression, code requirements and client expectations.

IES Conference  ( August 10th, Boston, MA )
Topic: How to do Tunable WELL: Points, Pitfalls, and PotentialPresenter: Craig Casey, Senior Building Science Engineer

This session will review the lighting requirements of the WELL Building Standard and describe how a tunable white lighting system can meet these requirements. Lessons learned on tunable lighting projects will be presented from various perspectives. A discussion of design and commissioning requirements when specifying a system will provide attendees a thorough understanding of potential pitfalls to avoid and ways to deliver added value to occupants. Attendees will get a deeper understanding of the existing metrics related to these topics and appreciate why the difference between SPD and CCT is so important.

Topic: From Data to InformationPresenter: Eric Lind, Vice President of Global Specification

Big data is everywhere in Smart Cities – from our smart phones to our cars, but the value proposition is not always clear. You may be asking yourself, now that I have a steady stream of diverse data being generated, what do I do with it? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Data Science Pioneer Clive Humby summarized this issue with a metaphor - “Data is the new oil. It’s valuable, but if unrefined it cannot really be used.” This is more relevant than ever in the landscape of connected lighting.

CxEnergy  ( April 25th, Las Vegas, NV )
Topic: Tunable White -- Minimize Risk During Commissioning and Satisfy Your ClientPresenter: Eric Lind, Vice President of Global Specification

LEDs have provided many new lighting capabilities, but with that have come some challenges. This presentation will discuss how to successfully implement Tunable White lighting on a project, with a brief overview of the technology and the key applications. One such application being tunable white lighting as part of a WELL building. This presentation will educate the audience on the user interfaces needed to make immediate changes and verifications to a lighting control system in order to meet WELL building requirements. It also covers commissioning requirements.
