How efficient are Direct current (DC)-powered lighting technologies, including Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and under what conditions are the benefits realized? This presentation will share findings of new research by the US Department of Energy into the DC and PoE lighting markets and provide an objective assessment.
Discover new efforts to standardize driver information (ANSI C137.4, D4i) and control sensor shapes and sizes (Zhaga Books 18 & 20, NEMA). Standardized drivers and shapes and sizes of sensors can enable upgradeability and future proofing benefits while allowing for interchangeability across manufacturers for smart lighting + IoT growth.
Critical questions of sensor effectiveness, reliability and deployment need to be addressed as sensors move into applications with significant human risk. This presentation discusses how The Next Generation Lighting Systems program is evaluating various sensor technologies with implications for interior and exterior applications.
