Designing with LEDs Spectrum
This one hour HSW LU program will provide an introduction to the topic “Designing with LED’s” (Light Emitting Diodes). This course begins with an introduction to LEDs, which explains their history, color technology, and gives a brief description about the IP (environment) ratings. The course then explores dynamic control capabilities including interfaces, RDM, CAN, and DMX512. Finally, “Designing with LEDs” reviews selected application examples throughout the world, illustrating the use of the latest lighting technologies in the industry.

Convergence: The Integration of Lighting and Micro Processor Technology Sternberg Lighting
Smart cities and university campuses across the country are integrating technology solutions into the design of both street and area lighting.  Security, messaging, and communication, as well as WiFi and small cell opportunities have brought an end to the days where a pole was seen simply as a means to support a light fixture.  This discussion will elaborate on a variety of technology solutions that are available now, as well as what’s on the horizon.

Understanding and Applying the IES Luminaire Classification System Sternberg Lighting
BUG Ratings are an improvement over the former ‘Cutoff’ metric, but have some critical shortcomings.  This presentation will highlight the useful elements of BUG Ratings, as well as make clear how this metric has and can lead to unintended results.

Lighting Control Technology for Digital and Dynamic Luminaires Spectrum
Understand and appreciate the intended use for particular lighting control technologies, and how best to deploy these technologies in the proper applications. Learn the strengths and challenges with control technologies and unlearn traditional thinking regarding controls design with the adoption of LED.
