We are pleased to announce that several customer favorites, OPTOTRONIC® LED Drivers and the ENCELIUM EDGE™ Light Management System, have each won multiple product awards for innovation and excellence from respected industry organizations! These awards are in addition to the seven awards mentioned in a previous 2018 blog post.
We’ve all heard about the key attributes of LED luminaires over traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen fixtures: greater energy efficiency, resistance to breakage, less heat emitted, and a longer lifespan. These benefits are easy to see or measure and are responsible for the widespread adoption of this technology across the commercial real estate industry. In addition, because SSL fixtures are digital in nature, important data about the location and health of a specific fixture or fixtures across a facility can be captured and leveraged by facilities teams.
Lighting controls range from simple switches to networked light management systems that leverage the latest technologies. Commercial real estate including offices, hospitals, retail establishments, schools and universities have all adopted smart lighting systems. The initial benefits that drew early adopters to smart lighting were the dramatic reductions in energy usage and the related costs. Today’s systems, however, are more technologically advanced and offer so much more.
Energy efficiency is top-of-mind for all businesses today. Facility managers are constantly seeking ways to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs. In order to support these efforts, government agencies have implemented programs to help finance technologies that save energy, cut pollution and help enable sustainability.
There is a revolution happening in commercial lighting. Networked light management systems are now considered essential for realizing maximum energy savings. Due to energy code requirements, they are increasingly becoming a requirement of standard lighting applications. As the popularity increases and code requirements tighten, the software that runs these systems becomes more important.
With all the new entrants in the market, the rapid pace of change, and almost every product claiming energy-efficiency in the lighting industry, it is hard to know which products are high performing and which qualify for industry rebates and incentives. Where can you go to get the trusted information that you need? The answer is – The DesignLights Consortium® (DLC).
This year, we will knock your socks off once again with our newest technology!
Come and see us at LightFair International (LFI), the world's largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference at Booth #1002 in Chicago May 6-10, 2018 at McCormick Place.
It is awards season and OSRAM Digital Lighting Systems is taking a walk down the red carpet. OSRAM is known for developing quality as well as innovative products. But don’t take our word for it. Check out our newest award-winning products.
LED lighting has come a long way from its initial days. Today it is combined with digital lighting controls to create smart lighting solutions that dramatically save on energy consumption and the related operating costs. But in addition to these savings, organizations deploying smart lighting solutions are achieving impressive results in other ways. Let’s take a look at a few examples.
Building owners and facility executives are always looking for new ways to control energy costs. Plug loads significantly impact an energy budget—sometimes accounting for as much as 50% of the total energy consumption in commercial spaces, and there are no-cost and low-cost solutions that can tackle the problem.
