At Lightfair, I will have the pleasure of presenting a workshop on lighting controls commissioning with Gary Meshberg of Encelium Technologies and David Weigand of Leviton, as part of the Lightfair Institute. The workshop (course #L09W21), “Commissioning and Controls,” will be presented on Monday, May 4, from 2-5PM.

This workshop will focus on providing a broad general survey of the topic of commissioning lighting controls. The session will provide a definitive overview of the commissioning process, identifying the benefits as well as the lighting systems affected by the process. Additional general topics of discussion will include the importance of a commissioning plan as a tool to prescribe when to commission lighting controls and who does the work, as well as to specify the procedures to be performed to ensure optimum system performance. We will also provide specific discussion on functional and operational testing procedures for lighting controls such as occupancy sensors, time sweep controls, etc.

Be sure to attend this workshop if you specify lighting controls. Gary and Dave are among the best in the field and have tons of practical knowledge to share.

After the show, by the way, I will be working with the Lighting Controls Association and commissioning experts to craft detailed commissioning guidelines for popular control strategies along with a generic commissioning specification.
