The DLC now provides improved DLC product listing logos with simplified and distinctive designs that make it even easier to identify products that meet the DLC technical requirements.
The lighting industry needs an integrated approach to solving the unintended negative consequences of light pollution on the natural environment. In response to this need, the DLC has published a whitepaper that seeks to describe the landscape for a small but promising part of the solution: non-white light (NWL) LED light sources.
SSL Technical Requirements V5.1 requires listed products to include advances in lighting quality and control functionality. With the transition to SSL Technical Requirements V5.1 quickly approaching, the DLC wants to highlight some important information and dates to remember.
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recently introduced ANSI/IES RP-45-21 Recommended Practice: Horticultural Lighting. This standard describes the differences between architectural and horticultural lighting design.
Having spent many years in the electrical industry as a 4th generation rep agency, my grandfather told everyone that my first words as an infant were “thank you, but we choose not to get into lighting.”
