The International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) has released a white paper titled “Far UV-C Radiation: Current State-of Knowledge,” which is a scientific review of Far UV-C technology and the state of the art research featuring key conclusions made through analysis of published literature and collation of expert knowledge.
This new Lighting Measurement (LM) standard, developed by subject matter experts from IES and the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA), provides guidance for the measurement of UV-emitting LEDs, normally available in the form of an LED package, array, or module.
This briefing summarizes the current state of knowledge about how the widespread and growing use of artificial light at night interacts with six key topics…
Lumenpulse has introduced new features for their linear, indoor/outdoor favourite, the Lumenfacade Nano.
Harmonization of international standards related to DALI lighting control continues with the publication of the updated ANSI C137.4-2021 standard in North America. ANSI C137.4-2021 builds on the international standard IEC 62386 (which underpins the DALI communication protocol).
Lumenpulse has introduced a new comprehensive group of services and support product suites, including remote access, commissioning, and programming services in pre-paid packages, to better serve the lighting communities’ needs.
The promotion of sustainable energy generation, the reduction of consumption in buildings and the expansion of electromobility are central building blocks on the way to the energy turnaround by 2030. Due to rapidly rising prices for gas and oil and the need to secure the supply of raw materials, the subject of energy supply is now taking on a whole new urgency.
