The original LED value proposition of more light for less power has been fulfilled, but not uniformly, and not always with design utility as the driving force. It’s difficult to marry luminaires from different lines into a coherent specification package. One way to get luminaires to work together is a clear control specification. Current code requirements and a variety of technologies that may or may not work together make a clear specification essential. This presentation will provide guidance about common areas of difficulty and the use of the control narrative as a means of communicating design intent.
- Identify common areas of potential confusion in lighting control intent specification.
- Identify components of control specification documentation and their uses.
- Identify role of a clear Sequence of Operations in documenting intent.
- Describe and provide examples of successful narrative specification components.
