  • Being Selective When Talking About Coordination

    Ensuring a minor branch-circuit electrical fault doesn’t travel any farther upstream is a goal of any electrical designer’s plans. However, in some settings, isolating such problems is especially critical. This is why the National Electrical Code (NEC) has paid a great deal of attention to the specification of appropriate fuses and/or circuit breakers to achieve “selective coordination” over the years.

    That’s because almost all existing LED lighting creates harmful blue-spectrum light that can result in photochemical degradation and photo-oxidization. Pharmaceutical and semiconductors manufacturers, for example, cannot expose many of their products during manufacture to harmful blue-spectrum light.

  • Energy Efficient Lighting – Control Systems

    In a previous article, we talked about energy efficient lighting with regards to incandescents and other sources of illumination. Even though they cost a little more to acquire, LEDs are more energy efficient. And, that means saving money on utility bills as well.

    But, the type of lamp or fixture isn't the only factor when it comes to energy efficient lighting. It's not just what you use, but how you use it. Lighting automation, often integrated into a so-called "smart" building, can save even more energy.
