Fundamentals Series - 100-Level Classes

106 Lighting Retrofits and Audits - $30
Led by Eric Strandberg

The advent of LED lighting has caused a seismic shift in the lighting industry, creating a renewed interest in how to best upgrade the lighting in existing buildings. One of the best places to start is to do an inventory of what your current lighting system is and what its strengths and weaknesses are.

Intermediate Series - 200-Level Classes

210 Power Over Ethernet - $30
Led by Armando Berdiel-Chavez

Power over Ethernet (PoE) lighting provides a different beneficial approach to data generation and aggregation, energy savings, and flexibility. It is a potential centerpiece for a Smart Building Ecosystem, directly powering LED lights via DC low voltage, and connecting to new and existing components and connected systems that all provide feedback to one building dashboard. Join this class for a discussion on the PoE architecture, its install and performance benefits, applications, and its potential as a connected technology.
