What Goes Wrong with LED Lighting and Why

LED technology offers building owners and facility managers opportunities to providing lighting effects impossible with traditional sources. Combined with control systems, the possibilities are almost endless. However, so too are the potential problems. This presentation will examine where things go wrong when characteristics of LED lighting are not fully considered. For example, legacy wiring and equipment can often create unexpected performance problems while forgotten bits of old control software can also create havoc. New features often provide unexpected consequences. Numerous field examples will be discussed, showing what can go wrong and how to avoid many of the problems.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn why applying traditional rules of lighting can lead to problems, and why it is important to apply the proper standards.
2. Review critical installation and programming issues, attendees will discover why contractor and end-user training is vital to the success of lighting projects.
3. Examine typical characteristics of legacy wiring/equipment, attendees will discover how interactions between LED luminaires and control equipment can create issues.
4. Explore how to avoid some of the more common facility problems that can accompany LED adoption.
