This calendar is intended to serve as a resource for those interested in remote learning events related to commercial energy and facilities management. Submit your event. All submissions moderated by SBC.
The digital nature of LED technology brings illumination and IT together, allowing lighting systems to participate in the Internet of Things.
Why use Power over Ethernet (PoE)?
Time and cost savings – Reduce time and expense of installation when compared to typical high voltage installation; there is not an actual need to hire an Electrical Contractor if an IT team can manage the connections. Network cables do not require high voltage and can be located anywhere.
Flexibility – Easily adapts new lighting strategies at the touch of a button. The systems are scalable and most any device or system can be included. A dashboard could be populated not just with a lighting system data, but other systems such as cameras, phones, HVAC, etc. The platform allows for interoperability of all systems that are connected.
Safety – Little to no risk of electrical injuries when installing since high voltage is not present and risk of fire is reduced
Reliability –System is controlled by a central source rather than a collection of distributed circuits, reducing failures. It can also be supported by a Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS).
Information – Real-time data that can be collected/stored/mined and can report in real time any and all anomalies for better facility management.
