Feb. 16, 2018
In our final Top 5 Stories video, Maury Wright wraps up the Strategies in Light conference and exhibition with comments from the IES panel on network controls and protocols for lighting, where PoE was touted but admittedly is optimal in new builds. Espen Technology showed a unique method of controlling dimming levels via a standard AC powerline. The IES and AMA continue to spar over outdoor lighting recommendations and how to interpret the research into light levels and CCT that promote both health and safety. Packaged LEDs from Osram and Cree showed the industry is always improving cost and performance, while Cree also launched a new high-power reference design that hits 200-lm/W efficacy.
