How Today’s Dimmers Are Getting Smart

When dimming technology first came to the mass market in the early 1960s, ambience-setting was a major motivator.

Surge Protective Devices: Know What You’re Specifying

Surge protective devices (SPDs) are critical components of any commercial or industrial electrical system. SPDs guard equipment from the over-voltages that can result from lighting strikes or equipment operation. Without this protection, these short-term events can cause long-term – and expensive – damage. Choosing the right SPD requires knowing where the device will be applied, along with the appropriate size to meet application needs.

Have you ever caught yourself wondering why someone hasn’t invented a GPS that works indoors? Maybe it’s been during a rush through an airport or while wandering a hospital’s hallways trying to find a loved one’s room – or, maybe, just last week, trying to find where the mayonnaise was moved to in your local supermarket’s latest reorganization. We’ve got smartphone apps that can tell us the fastest way to drive across the country, so why isn’t there an app for navigating big box stores and conference centers?

Communication Can Be at the Speed of Light with Visible Light Communication Technology

One of the biggest advantages of LED lighting, beyond its exceptional efficiency, is the fact that, as many electrical engineers have said, it’s infinitely controllable. It is, after all, based on solid-state technology similar to computer chips.
