The adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM) within the construction industry is a key UK government initiative aimed at improving the efficiency of the design and construction process, shortening project timescales and reducing environmental impact. However, BIM is still a mystery for many people, particularly regarding Lighting. This webinar will provide an introduction to Lighting in the BIM Environment, removing some of this mystery.
Lighting control is a particularly demanding application for wireless technologies. The last couple of years showed that traditional networking concepts did not work for professional lighting environment. In the webinar, Simon Slupik - CTO at Silvair and chair of the Bluetooth SIG’s Mesh Working Group - will explain how the most recent networking trends can help the lighting industry address this challenge. Discussing the solutions that are developed to address the problems of the evergrowing Internet traffic, Simon will describe how they can be applied to wireless lighting control networks to finally allow them to achieve truly flawless performance.
As the latest version of the global DALI standard for digital lighting control, DALI-2 focuses on interoperability backed by a robust certification program. Also, DALI-2 standardization now extends to all devices in a lighting-control system, including sensors, other input devices, and application controllers. Join us to hear how DALI-2 is changing the digital lighting landscape.
Household luminaires come into scope of the WEEE regulations in January 2019. This means that manufacturers, importers and re-branders must join a WEEE Producer Compliance Scheme (PCS) by November 2018. Nigel Harvey will give practical guidance of what this means to lighting, and what lighting producers need to do to comply.
