Detailed design and application

We are often asked “where should I start?” when applying lighting controls to a project. This seminar provides the answers looking at what technology is out there and also what is in the pipeline for the future.

The seminar looks in detail at the various control approaches and technologies that are available and considers their application based upon the type of project, the lights sources to be controlled, the degree of flexibility required, and the preferred installation approach.

The seminar acknowledges that one size rarely fits all and that a typical project has many different requirements which are best met by selecting a hardware and control approach that best suits each individual area while forming part of a connected, networked system.

The seminar includes recommendations and optimum design approaches for typical types of projects and building areas, and a sequence of flowcharts and animated schematics guides delegates through the technology and hardware selection process.

The seminar covers the following topics:

  • overview of lighting control and management
  • what are you trying to achieve ?
  • range of project applications
  • range of flexibility requirements
  • range of control technologies – DALI, Lon, BACnet and IP
  • putting it all together
  • design and application – where to start your design
  • system architecture – how to apply your design
  • regulations and guidelines that will influence your design (Building Regs, BREEAM, LEED)
  • enhancing sustainability through integration and connected systems
  • emergency light testing & monitoring
  • how do other people do it ?

The CPD Seminar or Webinar is accredited by CIBSE and counts towards an individual’s CPD requirement.

The session lasts an hour including ‘question and answer’ period and seminars are typically held at a client’s premises over a breakfast or lunchtime period.
