Lighting Controls for Your Business- What You Need to Know

With the LED industry changing seemingly by the day, it may be hard to keep up with the latest trends. One new trend that can have a major impact on your business is lighting controls. Lighting control is the ability to regulate the level and quality of light in a given space for different situations. Controlling light not only enhances the experience, improves visibility, but it can also result in up to 70% reduction in lighting costs. Below are other key applications about lighting control that may help your business.

Lighting Controls are perfect for a variety of settings

The latest products in lighting controls provide flexibility for numerous environments. These controls can be scaled from a single room, entire floor or a portfolio of skyscrapers. The controls also provide the flexibility to provide zonal and fixture-based control. This will enable building managers to adapt work space to meet today’s works environments. Settings where lighting control applications can be applied include:
• Office Buildings
• Private Offices
• Lobbies
• Auditoriums
• Exteriors
• Operations Offices
• Warehouses
• Parking Garages
• Hospitals
• Car Dealerships

Lighting Controls can increase efficiency

By upgrading the controls on your lighting system, you can automatically save energy by using occupancy sensors that will automatically turn on or off depending on whether the room is occupied. Daylight harvesting using photo-sensors, can detect natural light levels and adjust your lighting accordingly to save energy. By using sensors for occupancy and daylight harvesting, you can dim or turn off lighting when it is not being used. Turning the lights down by just a small percentage will result in energy savings without forfeiting the room’s light levels. The use of lighting controls can help create the perfect balance between natural and electric light and create an inviting and energy efficient environment.

Terms to Know in LED Lighting

As the LED lighting industry grows more mature, the lighting market is filled with LED lighting solutions. For customers, it is really difficult to figure out which LED lighting solution is most suitable for them in terms of various demands. This article will give you some tips on terminology you need to know. What used to be simple has become a bit complicated. However after learning these few terms, it will become much clearer and you will see the light!

T8 LED

LED: LED’s, or light-emitting diodes, are a solid state technology that have no filament, glass envelope, gas, or mercury. LED’s produce light by the movement of electrons that results from applying an electric voltage difference across a semiconductor material.

o When looking at lighting and watts, you are not looking at how much light a bulb puts out when looking at watts, but how much energy a bulb uses to put out that amount of light.

Lumens– In traditional terms a watt is a measurement of how much electrical power a device consumes.

o a lumen is a measurement of the amount of light that is contained in a certain area
o A much simpler definition of a lumen would be that one lumen is equivalent to the amount of light put out by one birthday candle when you are standing one foot away from it. If a light bulb puts out 100 lumens, imagine standing one foot away from a cake with one hundred birthday candles on it.
o Lumens are more accurate way of measuring the amount of light a particular bulb is putting out, because lumens are a direct measurement of light output
o The true measurement unit of luminous flux (or brightness) is the lumen (lm). Lumen measurements are an acceptable method to compare LED’s to traditional light sources.
o Lumens Per Watt- Similar to Miles/Gallon in a car

Driver– A LED driver is a device that manages power and controls the current flow for an LED lighting product. What makes a driver different from conventional power supplies, is that an LED driver responds to the ever-changing needs of the LED, or circuit of LED’s, by supplying a constant amount of power to the LED, as its electrical properties change with temperature.

Retrofit– A simple definition of a retrofits the renovation of your old lighting fixtures and/or bulbs that improves the lighting output and temperature of light all while emitting less heat and saving energy.

o Retrofitting traditional lighting fixtures harnesses the key properties that make LED’s unique. LED retrofit lamps are direct replacements for conventional incandescent, halogen, and compact fluorescent (CFL) lamps.

How a Facility Executive Can Increase Their Budget

How a Facility Executive Can Increase Their Budget
Shrinking Capital Budgets are a trend that many facility managers are facing. It is difficult to get a “yes” from senior management, even though there may be a leaky roof that needs to be fixed. Facility managers understand that it is not about how much money is available, it is making sure money is available when needed. In order for a facility manager to have his budget increase in the future, they need to show that they are adding value to the organization today. The question is how?
The best way to add value to the company and deliver measurable results is to improve how a facility operates. Improving efficiency is something that can be measured and the savings can be built into the next year’s budget. One way to achieve savings and show measurable ROI is by moving to LED lighting systems. Saving energy means saving money-both in the present and in the future. LED lighting systems have proven ROI and the results can be seen in the power bill immediately. If a facility manager’s recommendation starts saving 25%-30% off the annual power bill, that is measurable money saved, and their budget is sure to increase in the future based on the savings.
When approaching the CEO or CFO, you want to remember the 4 P’s, Professional, Practical, Proof and Perspective. The presentation should be easy to navigate, include measurable data, benchmarks and include real world statistics. You also want to include their language. This includes ROI, Payback Period, Total Cost of Ownership and Net Present Value. The first place to start would be to get a free energy audit of your facilities. Once you have this data, you would be able to solve the other key performance indicators the executives would want to know. Energy audits offer a beneficial way to examine energy needs and measure their costs against the return on investment for all proposed improvements. Below are some helpful articles that should help you get the ball rolling after your audit. For your FREE ENERGY AUDIT, call Accurate Technologies Inc. at 813-623-2481 or enter your information online at http://www.accuratetechinc.com .

Why you should Switch your T8 Fluorescent Lamps with T8 LED Tubes

 

Infographic for LED

Why you should Switch your T8 Fluorescent Lamps with T8 LED Tubes

  • Energy Savings
    • T8 LED tubes are up to 30% more efficient than Fluorescent Lamps
    • Our AT-T8 uses only (blank) Watts compared
  • Improves Fixture Efficiency
    • LEDs offer directional light (illumination exactly where you need it). Compared to Fluorescents which have multi-directional light, which mean some of the light is lost into the fixture and unnecessary places
  • Air-Conditioning Savings
    • LED’s run cooler than fluorescent lamps which could lead to money savings and makes air-conditioning more efficient
  • Mercury-Free and RoHS Compliant
    • There is no mercury or glass content with LED’s, which makes them environmental friendly
  • Longer Life and Sustainability
    • Because the light-emitting diodes don’t degrade in the same manner that the gas escapes a fluorescent or the filament burns out in an incandescent, LED lamps have a much longer lifespan than either of those lighting technologies. Some of the newerLED lamps generally have an expected lifespan of over 50,000 hours.
  • LED Does Not Give Off UV
    • LED replacement bulbs does not emit any light in the non-visible light spectrum (UV).  No UV reduces fading
    • Fluorescent T8 bulbs emit UV/IR light.
