British Columbia currently uses ASHRAE 90.1-2016 as the basis for its energy code. In this lunchtime seminar, we will learn how networked lighting control systems allow you to comply with mandatory controls requirements. This will involve an in-depth review of how different systems deal with “mapping” – meaning which components can be assigned to which fixtures. A variety of techniques – and more importantly, restrictions – is deployed by different vendors. It’s important to understand potential limitations of any system under consideration. Additionally, we will review documentation of a networked lighting control system. Effectively documenting the components and desired operation is important because that affects takeoffs, pricing, bidding, procurement, installation and commissioning.

Learning Objectives

  • Review current energy codes and mandatory controls requirements.
  • Explore “zoning” as a basis for complying with different controls requirements.
  • Compare and contrast how different control systems deal with “mapping” of components to fixtures.
  • Review typical documentation for deploying a networked lighting control system.
