All Blue Light is Not Created Equal, Exposure to the Right Blue is Critical for Optimizing Circadian Rhythms

By PRWEB One of the excuses the lighting industry uses to avoid addressing the harmful effects of blue-enriched LED lights at night is “circadian science is not yet mature.” Now a publication in PNAS from Harvard’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital has resolved one of the last remaining contradictions in the science – what color blue is responsible…

D4i: Standardizing Luminaire-Level Control

November 23, 2022 By Craig DiLouie The DALI Alliance recently extended DALI-2, which standardizes interoperability and control of LED drivers and sensors, with a version that more finely addresses the needs of the Internet of Things, which calls for individual device addressability, connectivity, and two-way data exchange. Called D4i, the standard enables real-time data acquisition for measuring…

Today members showcased their Matter products at a launch event in Amsterdam with a wide array of categories including motion blinds, occupancy sensors, weather devices, smart plugs, door locks, lighting, gateways, platform components, and Matter-based software applications. Since…

MaxLite’s C-Max Brings Future-Proofing to the Next Level

MaxLite’s C-Max Brings Future-Proofing to the Next Level

The pandemic demonstrated that we don’t know what the future will bring, but we’ve learned to adapt. For example, office spaces changed from rows of individual cubicles occupied on a daily basis to a hybrid layout of shared work desks that accommodates a rotation of employees coming in for a day or two. Just as the spatial needs of many offices changed after the pandemic, so did their lighting needs and energy goals.

 

 

Data Reporting, Diagnostics, Sensors and NLCs Added to ANSI C137.4-2021 Standard for Digital Lighting Control

Data Reporting, Diagnostics, Sensors and NLCs Added to ANSI C137.4-2021 Standard for Digital Lighting Control

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).
