Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Connected SSL & Controls newsletter for Oct. 9, 2023. In this month’s edition, DALI Alliance general manager Paul Drosihn enlightens readers on the flexibility that wired and wireless architectures offer alongside the standardized, bidirectional communications enabled via DALI solutions.

Meanwhile, energy code may spur the adoption of lighting controls systems to further increase the energy-saving benefits of new LED lighting installations. So it’s important to stay on top of reference standards, plan around requirements for energy code compliance, and changes that dictate how and when certain types of control devices can be used.

Finally, the organizers launching the first NYControlled event have summarized educational opportunities that await attendees in November; Glamox is seeking a new data-oriented executive; and a sports facility upgrades its player and fan experience with state-of-the-art controls by Cosmicnode.

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.

PAUL DROSIHN summarizes several approaches to implement interoperable controls systems that fully leverage the connectivity, bidirectionality, and lighting-specific data capabilities enabled by the DALI protocol.
GINA GRIFFITHS RODDA explains the importance of defining energy-code compliance requirements for existing buildings, and how lighting audits can ensure that retrofit projects check every box.
The 2023 NEC specification for wall-mounted devices eliminates stand-alone battery-powered light switches. GRAHAM MARTIN explains how energy harvesting devices can meet the need for wall-mounted switches that are safely operable when the power goes out.
CRAIG DILOUIE summarizes modifications in the 2019 90.1 energy reference standard that states will likely use for commercial energy code adoption, and compares alternatives to the standard.
Search is underway for a “chief data and technology officer” whose responsibilities will include overseeing human-centric lighting.
Teaming Cosmicnode wireless mesh-based lighting controls with EnOcean kinetic switches and Noxion LED lighting helps Belgian sports hall score big energy savings.
The new event will cover the specification of controls and identification of the proper systems for projects, protocol-specific costs and benefits, and the latest energy code requirements and foreseeable upcoming energy code trends.
To quantify and qualify cybersecurity concerns, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory recently studied six intelligent lighting systems, uncovering 44 high-risk threats.
