Continuous Controls: Lighting Energy Management for Retrofit and New Construction Projects
MetadataShow full item record
The rising interest of specifiers and end-users in Lighting Energy Management (LEM) control equipment has led to an increased need for further education in the selection, capabilities and applications of such equipment. This paper addresses these and related points for a particular type of LEM equipment referred to as "continuous controls." More specifically, the need for such equipment and its performance are reviewed. The remainder of the paper discusses the capabilities and applications of continuous control equipment for retrofit and new construction projects. Particular attention is drawn to the need for specifiers and end-users to become more control conscious as continuous controls become more fully integrated into building design.
