Lighting for Manufacturing Facilities
Aug 18-19, 2015
Cost: $400 1.0 CEU
Many of today's manufacturing facilities can benefit significantly from recent technological advances in lighting, both in LED and non-LED systems. In addition to energy savings, facilities can improve lighting quality and reduce maintenance and down-time while integrating lighting controls into their building management strategy. This course will educate decision makers on how to evaluate today's LED systems vs. non-LED systems based on lighting quality, economics and other performance metrics. Hands-on workshops will familiarize participants with design features and benefits based on lighting layouts and cost of light/environmental benefit calculations. Guidelines for light levels and lighting quality for various types of manufacturing facilities, based upon the recommendations of the IES (Illuminating Engineering Society), will be reviewed. Specific design considerations for hazardous environments, food processing, extreme ambient temperature ranges, and inspection lighting will also be discussed. Industry guest speakers and a review of case studies will reveal best practices.
